Margot Robie is an Australian actress, model, and producer. Her roles include The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus, I, Tonya, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Bombshell. She is the daughter of Sarie Kessler and Doug Robbie. The surname Robbie is Scottish. Margot’s mother is from a community of German and Sorbian settlers in Australia, most of whose ancestors moved to the country in the 1800s, with remote Polish ancestry.

Margot is married to assistant director Tom Ackerley.

Margot’s maternal grandfather was Herbert Justus Kessler (the son of Johannes Justus Kessler and Erna Dolcia Kowald). Margot’s grandfather Herbert was born in Clifton, Queensland. Johannes was born in Germany, the son of Justus Heinrich Kessler and Christina Bange. Erna was born in Australia, the daughter of Johannes Berthold Kowald and Louise Lydia Paech.

Margot’s maternal grandmother was Verna Mibus (the daughter of Edmund Oswald Mibus and Sophie/Sophia Mirtschin). Verna was born in Victoria, Australia. Edmund was the son of German parents, Ludwig Christian/Paul Mibus, who was born in Gmina Nekla/Neckla, Hauland, Posen, Poland, and who likely had a Polish grandfather; and of Valentine Israel, whose family was from Görlitz. Valentine’s father was named Carl August Leberecht Israel. Margot’s great-grandmother Sophie Mirtschin was the daughter of Andreas Mirtschin, whose parents were German, with his own father being from Sachsen; and of Johanne/Johanna Pauline/Paulina Emma Hempel, who was also born in Sachsen.

    That Mongoloid DNA is so disseminated these days, you can only really tell it’s still present by DNA haplotype groups. I guess maybe there’s still some of the east Asian-esque eyes, but it’s getting less prevalent. West Asia is a melting pot that has Indo-European influence and some infusion of Sub-Saharan DNA thrown in mix, plus the East Asian influence. No one is purely one thing over there, although there are distinct groups.

    But it doesn’t really make anyone better or worse, just different. Greece was settled by Neolithic farmers from the Antolian peninsula. That part of the world shares heritage, it’s an impossibility not to when you have humans living in close proximity to one another. As for the feuding that’s just human nature, we’re all terrible to one another and have been since the dawn of civilization. Sorry you were born to an area where feuding runs deep.

    As for their admission to the EU, no comment, that’s definitely a local problem I don’t have a dog in that fight.’

    I don’t think it’s strictly correct when you said Greeks originated from Anatolia when most sources say it’s the levant specifically from the Phoenicians but sure there’s also some Anatolian ancestry but zero Mongloid or any orientalist whatsoever.

    Greeks have been in Europe 2000 years Longer than what was previously thought so we’ve been Europeans for a long time and are continuing to become Europeans.

    I wish in the future we have the tech to drag the island of Cyprus much closer to mainland Greece say near Crete or somewhere closer so we can claim the island that is and always will be ours forever. Plus, the waters and landscape is nicer as when you get to Far East it’s not as nice. For example the city or town of Paphos has the nicest waters in Cyprus and is pretty much as west as you can go in the island. Varosha (most east resort in the island) which was once the French Riviera of the east Mediterranean defiantly has less visually appealing waters and beaches but never less still nice just the west of Cyprus is much nicer.

    Such as shame. Varosha had and still has great potential but look what the ——— —– are doing to it. Ruining it.

      I think the paternal haplogroup Q is leftover from Mongolian infusion in Turkey’s genetics, could be wrong but it’s a likely origin. It’s rare I think only 1 percent of the population carries it. But there’s also subclades of Q in Greece. I think the paternal J2 group started in Anatolia, and it’s everywhere in that region.

      As for the island moving tech, that’s probably a few centuries away.
      I’m telling you people swap DNA, through conquest or by choice, it’s inevitable. You all have a shared heritage.

    Considering there seems to be quite a bit of interest about her and it says she has at-least one other possible ethnic background and there’s a relative called Israel could she have distant Jewish blood? I mean to be called Israel and not be Jewish doesn’t make any sense right? It’s pretty rare tk be called Israel and not be atleast partly Jewish.

    • follers says:

      Israel has occasionally been a non-Jewish surname in the British Isles and Eastern Europe. It appears that her ancestor wasn’t Jewish.

      • Nicholas says:

        More digging needs to be done to confirm.

        Also, many Europeans especially from more central and northern parts including the east of Europe have Ashkenazi Jewish DNA so I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the case I mean the first result I received from my DNA profile when I did one of those DNA ancestry tests from Ancestry.co.uk, 23AndMe etc.. said I had 5% European Jewish ancestry which then changed to none.

        • passingtime85 says:

          Yeah, the first results are almost never accurate and even after a while when you think the results have settled to their most definite readings, they go and update the results again. It’s an on going process that gets ever more precise as the user base increases, samples sets get more varied, and the genotyping process evolves.

          You also have to account for human error and human interpretation. Geneticists actually have to review your results and they designate your DNA sample based on their informed opinion based on peer review studies and the like. It’s not some automated processes that completely cuts out the human factor.

          A few years ago it was revealed that geneticist were throwing in false results because they thought it would help curb racist notions of purity. No idea which company they worked for, but supposedly they didn’t work for 23andme. So overall all these admixture tests have to be taken with grains of salt.

          • jackson9 says:

            What kind of legitimate DNA testing company would intentionally throw in false results to
            “help curb racist notions of racial purity?” Your other points were spot on but I highly doubt that last one.

          • Nicholas says:

            Interesting and well put reply. As for the inaccuracy I’m well aware of how this site works and I do expect her background to change as it has recently done so (if I recall correctly there used to be no mention of her Polish ancestry but as I say that may be immaculate of me to say).

            According to two separate dna sites I’m very pure. As far as being Greek Cypriot goes, which due to religious tradition means we tend to marry within our own religious group so not much mixing with other ethnicities such as bordering Turks thank god.

          • passingtime85 says:

            Aw, are the Turks so bad?

            Thanks for the reply :).

            Well considering how they’ve treated my ppl, yes.

            Plus, they have the nerve to want to be in the EU when geographically only a tiny part of their big country could be considered in Europe.

            On top of that they have part Mongloid ancestry from central Asia which is very far from being European…

            They get away with alot and it just goes to show in this world it’s a little bit of might is right which I can understand.

            Greece needs to step up its game big time. I have faith one day. Then Turkey will be sent packing.

            There are several phrases/legends in Italian language about Turks and their pirate raids of the past, the most famous is “Mamma, li turchi” (no traslation needed). Also “smoking like a Turk” is a popular saying.

            Turks historically are seen as the Muslim invaders of Europe, the cradle of Christianity, so they don’t have a good reputation.

            Anyhow modern Turkey is an heterogenous country: the Western part is pretty much modern, richer than Greece and other Balkan countries, the inland is very rural, religious and ——–. Source: my Turkish kebab seller.

          • passingtime85 says:

            Every land on earth is inhabited by people that originated somewhere else, except maybe people in the horn of Africa. Even they have infusion of a backflow of Neanderthal DNA, and probably some unknown hominids that the fossil record has lost.

            How long do a people have to stay in a location to be considered from that area?

            If I recall correctly Turkic people started as a cohesive group 5,000 years ago in East Asia, and settled in Anatolia between 1500-1,000 years ago. Mongolians had conquests in the area around 800 years ago, so that’s probably the last big infusion of foreign people/DNA.

            Do distinct new haplogroups make what’s considered local? I think the youngest male paternal haplogroup R1a-M458 is 4500 years old, I think the most recent maternal group a subclade of X is over 10,000 years old. Do people have to stay in a region for over 5000 years to be considered locals?

            I guess it’s more of a rhetorical question than anything. Everyone will have a varying opinion I’m sure. But I feel bad for people that live in an area for centuries and are called foreign still, even though the people that lived there before them were foreign themselves at some point. The newcomers will never catch up to the original inhabitants, so the “original” people alslways get to hold that over the newer settlers’ heads.

          • passingtime85 says:

            Maybe if WWIII doesn’t happen or another set of crusades are averted, perhaps in 1,000 years Europe and Turkey won’t be at such odds.

            Ireland dislikes England, England dislikes France, France dislikes Germany, Germany dislikes Russia. Fueds are everywhere across the continent. They’ll die down eventually (e_e). Just for reference that’s supposed to be an eye rolling emoticon.

        • RamboJohnJ says:

          What ethnicitys are you? In Irish and Indian

          • jackson9 says:

            I am half Irish as well on my mothers side! I am 3/8ths Norwegian and 1/8th Italian through my father.

      • NOTREALLY says:

        no offense but Greek Cypriots are anything but “pure”

        • RamboJohnJ says:

          What ethnicitys are You? I’m Irish and Indian

        • RamboJohnJ says:

          Your ethnicity s must suck then sorry to hear

          • jackson9 says:

            RamboJohnJ quote: “Your ethnicity s must suck then sorry to hear.”
            thanks for showing your true colors. You are no better than the white supremacists you keep complaining about if you say others nationalities/ethnicities suck.

        • RamboJohnJ says:

          All native people if the Americas are Not the same Race..there are several races and many subraces. Us North American Indian s are not the same as Mexican natives or South American native s. There different people s different cultures

        • Nicholas says:

          I know people often say this however you’d be surprised as I mentioned above, Greek Cypriots tend to marry within their own ethnic group due to religious tradition and same goes for our illegal invaders across the green line.

          Therefore we have stayed pure for a very long time.

          Actual Greek Cypriot DNA is VERY pure at least according to two separate DNA ancestry websites.

          Sure we may have some admixture from past invaders but that is being bred out and as we evolve in the island our DNA profile will and is becoming more specific and ‘Greek’.

          Honestly deep down people can tell/feel what they are and I feel Greek to a high degree albeit as one based on a island approximately 600 miles away from my mainland country.

    • Nicholas says:

      I always thought she looked a bit Polish for sure plus she’s Sorbian as we all know which is Polish but to discover she also has Polish from mainland Poland is a new interesting discovery.

    • Nicholas says:

      Also, that link doesn’t work. If you could do some research regarding her possible Jewish ancestry will be interested in finding out plus it iwll improve the site.

      • passingtime85 says:

        I don’t put much stock into snopes, but this particular investigation left up many interviews and quotes that have been scrubbed elsewhere. Snopes seems to think it’s a falsehood, but I don’t agree.

        https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/dna-testing-companies-admit-altering-tests-screw-racists/

        They seem to believe that since it was only one unnamed employee that the claim is dubious and doesn’t hold much water, but it only take one person to alter results. Smoke and fire as the saying goes.

        • passingtime85 says:

          Whoops replied to the wrong post, that was for Bearboy/jackson9.

          • jackson9 says:

            I really hope this isn’t the case about DNA testing. As much as I don’t like any type or racist taking a test to prove “supremacy” or whatever I don’t like companies messing with results intentionally to make a point.

        • passingtime85 says:

          Who knows, like I said there’s a human factor in the interpretation of the results for all the testing companies. Some geneticist might try to prove a point and mess with results based on some personal principle, or maybe just did it as a joke because they’re bored, or maybe just aren’t thorough one day because they’re tired or distracted and screws up the results that way.

          That’s why it would be wise to send off sample to multiple companies to get a more generalized feel for accuracy, and always take all results with a little skepticism, and not treat the results as gospel.
