BirthMark: Brown spot in Left blue eye? (Termed: Sectoral Heterochromia).

Posted: 31 Mar 2008 9:56AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Alquist, Faugust, Sanburg
I'm seeking info on a BirthMark I have: a brown spot in my left blue eye, right eye is blue (Termed: Sectoral Heterochromia). I have straw-blond hair, and reddish-blond beard.

My Uncle: Oscar Faugust, son of: Alma Alquist + Gus Faugust of Jacksonville, IL, USA. They were of Swedish + Danish decent. Also had this same BirthMark.

My Great Aunt: Nell Faugust used to tell me as a child that it was a, "Mark of Swedish Royality!" My Mother scoffed at this.

Recently, a lot of attention has been paid to this trait as the Actress: Kate Boswell has the same BirthMark. There's now even contacts which can be worn to give the 'look' of sectoral heterochromia.

I did some research and apparently this trait was most common in the Royal Families of Russia, Denmark, and other European Courts.

*Seeking any further specific info, and knowledge of individuals whom also have this trait! It's apparently quite rare, and gene, which is recessive must come from both parents!
