Matching the House of Stuart-Royalty

I just googled our haplogroup of R1b1a2a1a1b4 and up came the familytree group with the same haplogroup and it was the House of Stuart of Scotland!  This is a royal house.  Here our matches have shown that Ireland was our origin and now we match the Stuarts!  All the time my grandfather had told us we were from Wales! 
The Stuarts ruled from 1371 to 1714 when Queen Anne died.  
The most common ancestor of this group seems to be Allan, Seneschal de Dol en Bretagne; a Crusader in 1097. 
This haplogroup is also called L21/M529/S145 from deep clade testing. 

I just joined the group and am excited about find out more information. 

We are still unique in starting with DYS #393 being 12.  All others are 13.  We have the SNPs of P312+L21+

Our R1b haplogroup is the most common haplogroup in European populations.  It's thought to have gone throughout Euope as humans re-settled after the last glacial maximum which was 10 to 12 thousnad years ago.  This lineage also contains the Atlantic modal haplotype. 

Reference: Familytreedna : haplogroup:
R1b1a2a1a1b4 P312+ L21+ U152- U106- P66- P314.2- M37- M222- L96- L226- L193- L176.2- L159.2- L144-

Dear Madam,
I purchased some weeks ago a DNA Test of Y ( thru FTDNA ) I just received the results : My Haplogroup is R1b1a2a1a1b4* with an astericks . I immediately joined 2 groups : South Irishand Normandy, According the me, * is a subgroup. Right ?
It seems that this group is of Celtic origins, probably from the british Isles. Do you confirm ?
I'm not an English native speaker, I come from Normandy, near the English Channel.
Warm regards from Gilles Lefevre.

That sounds about right, Giles. This published automatically. I only saw it now, myself. The group leader at ftdna will let you know if you don't fit the group. It doesn't hurt anything to belong. I've signed up for several groups, myself.
