iGENEA's Viking-DNA test enables you to discover whether you are descended from the Vikings.

In co-operation with HBO Nordic, iGENEA is presenting the new Viking-DNA test at the start of the new season of 'Vikings'.

The Viking Age began more than a thousand years ago and in those two centuries the warlike Norsemen from Scandinavia went on numerous raids, above all in northern Europe. They spread fear and terror but were also extremely capable seafarers. They battled their way as far as the Mediterranean and Leif Eriksson discovered America (Vinland). These Viking voyages were recorded for posterity in numerous sagas and chronicles as early as the Middle Ages. The enormous fascination arising from this period can still be felt today. The Vikings not only live on in our memory, they also settled in many regions outside Scandinavia and so are among the ancestors of many Europeans living today. To this day, the deeds of Ragnar Lodbrok and many others have remained an inspiration for releases like the series 'Vikings' on the History Channel.

Genetic indigenous peoples by iGENEA

By Ancient tribes, we refer to peoples from ancient times who are defined not only by their own language, culture and history, but also by their own DNA profile. An origins analysis by iGENEA determines your Ancient tribe by means of your haplogroup and genetic profile. The result refers roughly to the period between 900 BC and 900 AD.

How can I, as a woman, examine my paternal lineage with a DNA test?

With our DNA-Explorer you can find out your entire origin of the maternal and paternal side. Women and men can do this test. Only for a test of the pure male line we need the samples of a man, this can be e.g. the father, a brother, uncle or cousin. If you do not have a male relative, we recommend our iGENEA Basic Test (DNA-Explorer). If you have such a relative who is willing to give samples, we recommend our iGENEA Premium Test.
