We report the case of four women and a man, all born in an Italian village during and immediately after WWII, that recently contacted our laboratory in order to perform kinship analysis. According to their claim, the propositi were the illegitimate offspring of a country gentleman and a peasant woman, given in adoption immediately after birth. A story that curiously reminded us of Jean Jacques Rousseau, Thérèse Levasseur and their five children. Problems connected with DNA analysis in cases where all stated relationship are questioned, and a wide range of different pedigrees could be used as hypotheses in LR calculations are discussed.
