    No, the Albanians are descendants of the Thracians and Illyrians, and they weren't gypisies. I think gypsies were brought down to the balkans from India or Pakistan by the ottoman empire.

    And gypsies only make out a very little percentage of these countries, so it's highly unlikely.

    No. The Roma did not mix with native Europeans. A small minority Southeastern Europeans do have MENA ( Middle Eastern/ North African) ancestry from the ottomans but most of those who have some have an insignificant amount. I guess the woman in your picture has an unusual amount of MENA ancestry or just a spray tan/ plastic surgery.

    A lot? Yes of course most gypsies live in Eastern Europe I think.

    Rita isn't gypsy though. Here she is with her family.
