Hans Jonatan was a slave of mixed ancestry who was born in the Caribbean in 1784. His mother was African and his father Danish, most probably Ludvig von Schimmelmann, governor of the Danish West Indies at the time. In the 1790s, Jonatan moved to Europe where he fought in the Napoleonic Wars and in 1816 he settled in Iceland where he married Katrín Antoníusdóttir, with whom he had two children through which he has about 500 present descendants in the Icelandic population today. The pic is from their clan book, This Jew says: So much for the purity of the Arian race. For this they killed my people? Source.
