        These anatolians were similar to today Spanish and north Italians.

        Ancient Anatolians are much closer to modern Cypriots and Greek islanders than to Turks.

          That makes sense given that Christgays packed Anatolia with every bizarre meme ethnicity in the Roman Empire for almost a millennia, whereas Greek Islanders are just Anatolian Farmers plus Steppe/WHG from the Mycenaeans. You'd have to do a more granular exploration of Turkish DNA to see anything past "Byzantine mutt".

        They were IE actually. They spoke Luwian, a dialect of Hittite.

    Yes. The patricians were the descendants of Troy

      Most of the people from Central Italy were Indo Europeans so in that sense sure. Otherwise not really.

      That doesn't even make sense by their own standing considering most Patrician Clans came to Rome well after its founding and came from different regions of Central Italy like the Claudii who were Sabines. The last clan admitted to the Patricianate was in the early 5th century.

    No 🙁
    DNA evidence has disproven it.

      Etruscan elites and the vast majority of Roman patricians cremated their dead. We cannot extract uncontaminted aDNA from cremains. No upper class Etruscan or Roman patrician has ever had their dna sampled and analyzed. All the big “research papers” on aDNA of Iron Age Italy are sampling Roman and Latin plebeians and other Italo-Celtic peoples who lived amongst them who preferred inhumation, though most of their elites would eventually turn to cremation.

      There are some east med admixed outliers

        Levantines/Phoenicians. The earliest outlier comes from Praeneste where some tombs yielded several Phoenician and Assyrian silver and gold bowls and cauldrons

    no, it's a just fricking myth copied on the greek model.
    It's exactly like today with all those crazy fundamentalists who believe their ancestor lived in wakanda or in samaria

    It seems unlikely they were from a specific ethnic group. The split between patrician and plebian probably came much later in Roman history than it projected backwards when it told its own history.
