    $\begingroup$ The wikipedia page List of notable Romani people cites Sofya Kovalevskaya as being one quarter Romani, though her dedicated wikipedia page is less precise, stating only that "There may also have been some Romani ancestry on the father's side." $\endgroup$ – Nick Apr 4 at 18:33

    $\begingroup$ IMHO, before speaking of physicists, not to speak of "famous physicists", a fundamental fact is that, till a recent past, Romani people weren't going to school, therefore were only very few to be able to read and write. $\endgroup$ – Jean Marie Becker Apr 7 at 14:38
