Was Adolf Hitler the son of Jose Rizal?

I heard this long time ago. Funny how people just put two events together, and voila, we have an urban legend. Rizal was in Austria in 1888. Hitler was born in Austria in 1889. Therefore, Hitler was the son of Rizal! What is this, a conclusion-follows-argument topic in Philosophy class 101? And since sons almost always do not follow the footsteps of their fathers ( the Hero could have a villain son, while the Villain will have a son who will be a hero someday), therefore, Hitler could indeed be the son of mild mannered Rizal, or so other people say. And if you add the fact that Hitler didn't invade Manila in World War 2, you'd come to another conclusion that it was for sentimental reasons. Personally, I think this is not true. But it has become part of our chismis folklore (mythology). It hasn't been proven, but a lot believe it, like the White Lady in Balete Drive, which is near Eat Bulaga's studio. You can hear the next conclusion coming: there is a White Lady in Broadway Centrum during the show! But that's another topic :)

Nice share bro.. During my History class, we've tackle about that topic. So funny to hear it again in Mylot. But anyway according to what i've remember during that class, there are some proof about that, but it not that too strong to prove that its true. It said that one time when Rizal was in the Autria, he slep in one of the Hotel there, and he slep with chambermaid named Clara (Kolz), and eventually the chambermaid get pregnant and that is Hitler, in Rumors, but no absolute proof. And for further continuation of this topic guys because it been started by warriorx, rumors also that Mao Zedong is also son of Rizal.

It's almost impossible.You can't just conclude that Adolf Hitler is the son of Rizal based on that facts.There were so many women in Austria on that time and the probability is very low.Who is the mother of Adolf Hitler anyway?Does she has a personal connection with Rizal?

you should have watch the Hitler: evil rising. his parents were actually relatives, he is a product of an icentious relationship between an uncle and his niece. that's probably how he got obsessed with his own niece, which led that poor girl to kill herself so many time and suceeded in the end. so, this story has NO BASIS and WRONG. who ever said this should stop imagining filipinos being connected in foreign history.

Hi warrior, I can't connect the fact. However there's a big possibility that it could be. Our national hero was so popular among women worldwide due to his suave and intelligent ways. Casual encounters could often result in a serious romance and may produce unexpected results. Genetic testing could only settle the issue.

It is not needed to do that, because when you read the life of Hilter, it is stated there that adolf hitler came from a well-to-do family in Austria, Hungary. A some of a government worker. and that must have a proof so, there no way it called be possible.
