    Even Finnish Swede admitted that thousands of Germans settled in Late Medieval Scandinavia. They were often not North Germans - so autosomally very different from native Scandinavians.

    Mannerheim himself was of German ancestry (not Swedish as many people think):

    That makes sense, since modern Irish are around 20%+ norse, so if they say they are even split of Irish/Scandinavians it comes to similar amount like being 70% norse in origin.

    This might as well be just shared DNA from ancestors of common origin. These estimates often can't be taken literally. If you take them literally then modern Norwegians are about 20% Polish:

    But Vikings did colonize Ireland. There are lot of norse toponyms in Ireland. I think they founded Dublin for example. btw, if this was shared ancestry why don't English or Welsh score it too in such amount ?
    this norse input is high in Ireland and Orkneys while Germanic in England and lowland Scotland is more of continental type (Danish/North German)

    But were most likely nowehere near 20%, just like Poles were not 20% in Norway.

A whole lot of surnames in modern Norway are of Non-Norse origin. This includes many German surnames.
    That's the myth you'll hear from leftist Scandinavians who desperately want to be "exotic". If I was to believe the bullcrap I hear from Swedes one would think that modern day Swedes are exclusively a mix of Sami, Wallon, Scots, Finns and Germans. The myth of the Wallonian smiths is so widespread I hear almost everyone claim to be partly Wallon when only 900 Wallons settled in Sweden and 20% of them left by the 17th century. Either way, there's one study on a Viking era woman from Birka in Sweden. She ended being almost identical autosomally to modern day South Swedes.


    Modern day South Swedes(from Gtaland) are themself extremely close to Danes and Norwegians, so it makes the scenario of Norwegians being anything but Norse quite hard to believe.

    You didn't answer why this Norwegian like input is lacking in Cornwall or rest of England ? And how can you know amount of Viking input in Irish ? There is some I1 and Germanic R1b there, not all is from English colonists.

    Why would they use modern samples if there is already a decent amount of ancient samples from the British Isles? They most probably used Iron Age, Roman era and Bronze Age samples.

    BTW many Bell Beakers from Bronze Age Britain and Ireland come out as very "autosomally Germanic" on GEDmatch. And obviously they were not Germanic-speakers but other Indo-Europeans.

    So as I said, much of this DNA can be shared ancestry from ancient times. Just like most of this 20% of "Polish" in Norway is probably shared Corded Ware DNA unaletered by regional drift.

    Actual Poles also settled there.

    Early Medieval Denmark and Poland were allies and there were Polish mercenaries in Danish armies. Written sources (‘Danish History’ by Saxo Grammaticus) and archaeology confirm this.
