Meet Adolf Hitler's Only Brother and Living Relative [Photo]

In a bizarre claim, Romano Lukas Hitler is claiming to be the only man alive who is directly related to the German responsible for one of the world's greatest atrocities.

Romano, 65, has his name on his passport, his German ID card, his bank account and his rental contract for his home in the eastern town of Görlitz.

"Adolf Hitler's father Alois had a younger brother. His grandson was my father", said Mr Hitler to German website, MOPO24.

He claims his parents fled communist East Germany and died in Bratislava in Slovakia.

He also claims he was handed over to a monastery and was then adopted by a Polish family. He later returned to Germany as an adult to train as a ship's helmsman.

However Romano's claim about Hitler's father Alois having a brother doesn't fit the accepted version of history.

In 1837, when she was 42 years old, and still single, Alois' mother Maria Schicklgruber gave birth to him - her  first and only child.

Maria refused to reveal who the child's father was, so the priest baptized him Alois Schicklgruber and entered "illegitimate" in place of the father's name on the baptismal register. historians have discussed two candidates for the father of Alois.

They are Johann Georg Hiedler, whose name was added to Alois's birth certificate later in his life and who was officially accepted as the father of Alois by the Third Reich.

Johann Nepomuk Hiedler, Georg's brother and Alois's step-uncle, who raised Alois through adolescence and later bequeathed him a considerable portion of his life savings.
