Adolf Hitler had no children, although it is claimed  that he did have a son called Jean-Marie Loret. He was was born illegitimately in 1918 in Seboncourt as Jean-Marie Lobjoie. His mother was Charlotte Eudoxie Alida Lobjoie (1898–1951), daughter of Louis Joseph Alfred Lobjoie, a butcher, and his wife Marie Flore Philomène (Colpin) Lobjoie. According to the birth registry of his home town, Loret’s father was an unidentified German soldier during World War I. Adolf Hitler had stayed in the localities of Seclin, Fournes, Wavrin, and Ardooie during the years 1916 and 1917, and, according to eyewitnesses, he supposedly had a relationship with Charlotte Lobjoie.

Leo Rudolf Raubal Jr (1 October 1906 – 18 August 1977) was a teacher, soldier and manager. He was a son of Leo Raubal (Sr.) and his wife Angela (Adolf Hitler’s half-sister) and one of Adolf Hitler’s nephews

Like his younger cousin Heinz Hitler but unlike cousin William Patrick Hitler, Leo Raubal was a “favorite nephew of the leader”, and Hitler liked to spend his time with him.However, according to William Patrick Hitler, Leo did not like his uncle Adolf and blamed the latter for the death of his sister Geli. This, however, cannot be confirmed, with Leo saying in 1967 that Hitler was “absolutely innocent”, according to historian Werner Maser.

Before the war, he became a manager of the Linz Steelworks. In October 1939, he was drafted into the Luftwaffe and was a lieutenant in the engineering corps. He looked similar to Adolf Hitler and sometimes served as Hitler’s double during the war.[3]

He was injured in January 1943 during the Battle of Stalingrad, and Friedrich Paulus asked Hitler for a plane to evacuate Raubal to Germany. Hitler refused and Raubal was captured by the Soviets on 31 January 1943.

Hitler gave orders to examine the possibility of a prisoner exchange with the Soviets for Stalin’s son Yakov Dzhugashvili, Yakov_Dzhugashviliwho had been captured by the Germans on 16 July 1941.Stalin, who was not very fond of Yakov,refused to exchange him either for Raubal or for Friedrich Paulus, and said “war is war.”

Raubal was detained in Moscow’s jails and was released by the Soviets on 28 September 1955, and returned to Austria.

He lived and worked in Linz as a teacher. He died during a vacation in Spain. He was buried on 7 September 1977 in Linz.Leo Raubal Jr. had a son Peter (born in 1931) who is along with Elfriede’s (Leo Jr.’s sister) son, Heiner Hochegger, and William Patrick Hitler’s three sons the closest living relative to Adolf Hitler. Peter Raubal is a retired engineer who lives in Linz, Austria.

So the fate of the survival of Hitler’s bloodline rests in the hands of just five family members: the two sons (Peter Raubal and Heiner Hochegger) of Adolf Hitler’s half-sister Angela Hitler, and the three remaining sons (Alexander, Louis, and Brian Stuart-Houston) of Adolf’s half-brother Alois Hitler Jr.

So far they have no children and, as stated, and they have a  pact,to intend  never to have children.

Aloisa Veit: Hitler’s cousin who was gassed.

Aloisa

A member of Adolf Hitler’s own family was one of those killed in the Nazi campaign to wipe out the mentally ill, according to two historians.The woman, named as “Aloisia V”, was the great grandchild of Hitler’s great aunt – his second cousin, once removed.She was related to him through his father’s family, the Schicklgrubers.

She was gassed to death on 6 December 1940, at a mental institution in Austria, historian Timothy Ryback said.

Medical files show she suffered from schizophrenia, depression, delusions and other mental problems, he said.

The documents, discovered at the Vienna institution where she was treated, reveal that Nazi doctors diagnosed her as suffering from “schizophrenic mental instability, helplessness and depression, distraction, hallucinations and delusions.”

She told doctors she was haunted by ghosts and the presence of a skull. She spent most of her time chained to an iron bed.

At one point she pleaded in a letter to be provided with poison so that she could kill herself. “I’m sure it would only require a small amount to free me from my appalling torture,” she wrote.

Aged 49 when she died, she was one of thousands of mentally ill people – considered sub-human by the Nazis – killed or sterilised in a euthanasia programme meant to eliminate them.

But Mr Ryback, a US historian who heads Germany’s Obersalzberg Institute, said he and colleague Florian Beierl had come across several “cases of either physical or mental disabilities” in Hitler’s own family.

It is unclear whether Hitler knew about Aloisia’s condition, and her fate, the researchers said.But the Gestapo had labelled Aloisia’s line of the family “idiotic progeny” in a secret 1944 report.

Aloisia was the great-grandchild of the sister of Hitler’s paternal grandmother, meaning she was part of the Schicklgruber side of the family, Mr Beierl said.He said the Schicklgrubers were close to Hitler’s family – and that Hitler’s father helped get Aloisia’s father a job as a civil servant in Vienna.

Mr Beierl said many of the Schicklgruber family “crashed into suicide and mental illness”, until eventually “the entire line died out”.

The historians say they have no conclusions on whether mental illness affected Hitler himself, but said they would hand their findings to an expert on hereditary diseases to see what his assessments were.
