One last observation to the thread. Sometimes the Brazilian Amerindian mtDNA
could get access to the top Nobility in Portugal too. The Marquês de Pombal,
an 18th century Portuguese powerful statesman had a Brazilian Amerindian
mtDNA from the early 1500's (Genealogias Clássicas). He was related to
Pernambuco's Albuquerque de Maranhão family, a top mixed family from the
first Brazilian nobility, Conquistadores do Maranhão. The Marquis of Pombal
abolished the differences between Old Christians and New Christians and he
abolished or diminished the Amerindian slavery in Brazil and recognized the
Indians as subjects of the Empire
