Haplogroup G has actually been found among King Richard III remains (G2a-P278), House of Bourbon, Joseph Stalin and Otzi the Iceman. If you want to find about it's presence you can read it off of wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_G-M201#Modern_presence

At the level of national populations, G-M201 is most commonly found in Georgia; it is found at even higher levels among many other regional and minority populations in the Caucasus.

And also what's very interesting:
In the Tirol (Tyrol) of western Austria, the percentage of G-M201 can reach 40% or more; perhaps the most famous example is the ancient remains of the so-called "Iceman", ÷tzi.

My friend's family got haplogroup G-M201 at ftDNA.
