Why are so many Scottish men so devastatingly handsome?

I swear, the most handsome men on earth are mostly from the Scotland or Scottish descent.

I know what you mean. The Scots are a beautiful people.

I'll agree that there are some damned handsome Scots, and some damned sexy Scots, and considerable overlap, but "devastatingly handsome" as a class seems the overstatement of someone unfamiliar with Scotland.

I love the place, but they ain't all gorgeous.

A genealogical study was commissioned in Great Britian using the Y chromosome, which changes very little from male descendants to male descendants, in villiages where their presence could be traced back serveral generations. Both Ireland and Wales showed none/to very little Norse Y chromosome earmarks whereas Nothern England, Southern Scotland and the Northern Isles of Scotland was 40%-60%. Of course with Danelaw that is not surprising. Also the Irish and Welsh, the celts being the original peoples of the British Isle, were looked down upon by the invaders from Rome to the Normans. The Saxons, Jutes, Angles and Danes were all from the same area around and in Germany.

The Danes were Vikings and of the Viking tribes were the most likely to settle rather than pillage and leave. There was a heavy Norwegian presence in the Northern Scottish Isles between Norway and Scotland, it is believed that Norwegian Vikings completely eradicated the indigenous celt populations of these islands. Dane settlements have been found in Russia and the Near East and the Normans, at least the Norman nobiltiy, were Viking Danes.

by Anonymousreply 36April 1, 2009 4:55 PM

Yes, but the point is numbers. The Viking invasions of Russia, of France, or England and Ireland, happened in an era of widespread literacy and if there were population mass movements, it would have been recorded. The invaders were rather small groups. On the other hand, the invasion of the Angles, Saxons, Jutes, et al. happened in a largely pre-literate society. The assumption that these people were German rather than Norse rests on the thin reed of language. Probably most of them came from Denmark and Holland, not Saxony, and that they spoke a Germanic language doesn't mean they weren't Norse by genetic descent. That's the point we were trying to make. Yes the Vikings and Normans were Norse (although the Normans had intermarried in the hundred years they spent in France). They founded Dublin. But they weren't a mass movement of large numbers of people, which is why it is likely the genetic relationships of Scotland and England with the Northlands predate them. Of course it is probable that Norway and Spain have been in contact with both Scotland and Ireland continuously for thousands of years. The question is what accounts for the genetic anomalies.

The Scottish Rugby team is particularly handsome at the moment, helped by their flattering strip. They're not so good st the actual rugby though. Mind you, the English, Welsh, French and Italian ruby teams are all pretty gorgeous as well, so maybe its rhe tugby, not the Scottishness. Scottish soccer players - not so great.

Yes, some Scots can be very handsome. But the most drop dead gorgeous guy I ever saw was a boy from Ireland that my sister was dating.

He and I got along fabulously. But he had a little drinking problem which ended his relationship with the family.

Quite the contary. The Danes had a huge presence in Northen England, so much so that the King was a Dane and the territory covered by Danelaw was massive. Much larger than the English territories of the Anglo Saxons in the South. The suffix "by" is old Norse for farm or village and look at the number of place names in this area that end that way. In fact after the defeat of the Danes in Northern England the Anglo Saxon King ordered that all Danes in England and Scotland be killed to avoid any Viking sympathies should there be another invasion and they were. The Celts were seen as inferior to the foreign ruling classes and were slaves and they were treated as such by all of the invaders. The Vikings sold the Celts as slaves to other places and the Anglo Saxons as well as the Normans treated them as homegrown slaves. There wasn't much marriage or association between them and the Celts other than to collect taxes or preform manual labour. This is one of the few things in Britain that has been consistant.

Queen Elizabeth, the "Queen Mum", was of the House of Stuart bloodline. Victoria was as well and Victoria's children all married into the Royal Houses of Europe. All Euro Royality is a French - German - English - Spanish mixture with a bit a Dutch thrown in.

Alright then 57, the Danes had aboslutely no affect on England, it's history, or it's population. It is all the Anglo-Saxons. It is also an interesting fact that the concept of slaves comes from Russian Slavs, one must say that those Slavs certainly got around and are as old as civilization.
