Haplogroup Q-L54

Haplogroup Q-L54 is a subclade of Y-DNA haplogroup Q-L53. Q1a3a-L54 is defined by the presence of the L54 Single Nucleotide Polymorphism. Q-L54 has descendants across Western and Central Europe, the North and East of Asia, the Americas, it includes two of the major pre-Columbian paternal lineages in the Americas: Q-M3 and Q-M971. The boy Anzick-1, who lived 12,600 years ago and was found in the state of Montana, has a Y-chromosome that refers to haplogroup Q-M971. Q-L54 descendant lines include two Eurasian paternal lineages, the Central Asian Q-L330 lineage and the Scandinavian Q-L804. Q-L804 is Scandinavian and the TMRCA is just over 3000 years. Haplogroup Q‐L54 is dominant in two North Siberian populations, the Kets and Selkups, with frequencies of 97.7% and 66.7%, respectively. Q-L54 is defined by the L54 SNP alone. Current status of the polygentic tree for Q-L54 is published by pinotti et. al in the article Y Chromosome Sequences Reveal a Short Beringian Standstill, Rapid Expansion, early Population structure of Native American Founders.

Leopoldo O'Donnell, 1st Duke of Tetuán

Leopoldo O'Donnell y Jorris, 1st Duke of Tetuán, 1st Count of Lucena, 1st Viscount of Aliaga, was a Spanish general and statesman, Prime Minister of Spain on several occasions. He was born at Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands, a son of Carlos O'Donnell y Anethan and wife Josefa Jorris y Casaviella, paternal grandson of José O'Donnell y O'Donnell and wife Marie Anne d' Anethan, he was of distant Irish paternal ancestry, a descendant of Calvagh O'Donnell, Rí of Tír Chonaill, a Gaelic territory in the west of Ulster in the north of Ireland. He had an uncle Francisco and an aunt Beatriz, married to Manuel Pombo y Ante, had issue. O'Donnell was a strong endorser of the liberal Cristinos and the regency of Maria Cristina during the 1830s; when General Baldomero Espartero seized power during 1840, O'Donnell went into exile with Maria Cristina, was involved in an attempted coup against Espartero during 1841. O'Donnell was soon back in power and was sent to Cuba as Captain General during October 1843.

He is credited with the massacre of 1844 known as the repression of La Escalera. Thousands of slaves and free-coloured people in Cuba were confined in dungeons, were tortured and executed in what became known as the'year of the lash'. During 1854, he made a pronunciamiento against the government and was named Prime Minister for a time, he served as War Minister of the Espartero government. The Crimean War caused an increase of grain prices due to the blockade of Russia, causing a famine in Galicia during 1854. Riots against power looms spread through Spain, General O'Donnell intervened, marching on Madrid. Espartero resigned power in O'Donnell's favour on 14–15 July 1856, Isabella II asked him to form a government as the 44th Prime Minister of Spain. For his new administration, O'Donnell formed the Unión Liberal Party, designed to combine Progressive and Carlist factions. O'Donnell attempted to define moderate policies for Spain with this new party, advocating laissez-faire policies and confiscating church land.

He was soon dismissed after only a few months in power on 12 October, two years of reaction followed. In governments, he was more careful. O'Donnell's two administrations worked laboriously to attract foreign investment to improve Spain's railroad infrastructure, he failed to achieve much economic growth and increased industry only in Basque country and Catalonia, both of which had substantial industrial centres. He was a proponent of a new and aggressive imperial policy, intended principally to expand Spanish territory in Africa after French successes in Algeria. In the first administration he was twice at the same time the 136th Minister of Foreign Affairs and the 48th Prime Minister of Spain between 30 June 1858 and 2 July 1858, again as the 138th Minister of Foreign Affairs between 21 October 1860 and 18 January 1863, remaining again as Prime Minister until 26 February 1863, his second term as the 53rd Prime Minister started on 21 October 1860. He took a brief respite from his government during 1860 to command the Spanish army at the battle of Tetuan during its Spanish-Moroccan War, overseeing the capture of Tétouan.

He was rewarded for his abilities in the campaign with the title Duke of Tetuán. During 1866 he repressed a revolt commanded by General Juan Prim, was subsequently dismissed by the Queen for the brutality of his regime on 11 July 1866, he was the 103rd Grand Cross of the Order of the Sword. He was succeeded in his titles by his nephew, son of his brother Carlos O' Donnell y Jorris and wife María del Mar Alvarez de Abreu y Rodríguez de Albuerne, Carlos O' Donnell y Alvarez de Abreu, 2nd Duke of Tetuán, 2nd Count of Lucena and 9th Marquess of Altamira, married in Madrid on 1 June 1861 to María Josefa de Vargas y Díez de Bulnes.
