I calculated lbs from kgs wrong (I went kgs*2-10% rather than kgs*2+10%), as I noticed when Soult claimed to be twice my weight. Should be about 175.

I was wondering about that.  Smiley

Are you sure you're not "black Irish"? Those were Irish that mixed with Spaniards when the Spanish Armada wrecked on the Irish coast.

Acctaully, I heard that that was just a myth.

Myth.  Inhabitants of Western Ireland have always had a prevalence for dark hair /light eyes and geneticists believe these are the original pre-celtic inhabitants of Ireland.  The Welsh have these traits even more than Western Irish- look at Catherine Zeta Jones and Tom Jones.  There might have been a few Spanish that made it to Irish shores but they did not significantly change genes.  Interestingly, the Irish share a lot of genetic markers with the Basques.

Yeah, that was what I heard.  And the French and the Irish carry remarkable genetic similarities that neither group shares with the English.
