About Ronaldo’s CapeVerdean ancestry is nothing more than a rumor.
However Ronaldo’s maternal grandmother is Maria Angela Spinola. Spinola is a name of Genoese origin, which indicates that Ronaldo has Italian ancestry.
How do you know it’s a rumour?
Mrs. Spinola was his stepgrandmother. His biological grandmother, Matilde, passed away when his mother was five.
I know, because the existence of any CapeVerdean grandmother has never been confirmed, nor has Ronaldo himself and his family ever confirmed.
The picture of Cristiano Ronaldo’s supposed CapeVerdian grandmother is D. Berta(Berta Bento), who lived in Guinea Bissau and not in Madeira.
According to the following report, he has distant Sephardi Jewish ancestry.
Well, that’s the 1500s, probably less than 1/1024.
Apparently he has a Cape Verdean great grandmother : https://tribunaexpresso.pt/ronaldo/2009-01-14-Cristiano-Ronaldo-tem-costela-cabo-verdiana
