Gore Vidal claims that his earliest known ancestor resided in the Trento region in the 16th century, and that his ancestors spoke Romantsch. Of late however he has been searching for evidence of a Sephardic Jewish origin. Vidal was adopted by Spanish Jews as a substitute for Chaim, a Hebrew male given name meaning "life".
