Dark Season 3 Family Tree - Jonas’s family

Jonas’s story is possibly one of the most interesting ones, as it spans over a century. The constantly repeating moto of Dark “The beginning is the end and the end is the beginning” doesn’t fit anyone else's story as well as it fits Jonas’. Jonas is literally the starting point of his family and is the end as well. Here is how his family tree works,

Jonas Kahnwald is the son of Michael Kahnwald, (who is actually Mikkel Nielsen by blood) and Hannah Kruger. Mikkel Nielsen is the son of Tronte and Jana Nielsen. When it comes to Tronte Nielsen, until Dark Season 2, his parentage was a big question for the viewers, as only his Agnes was known to us. However, Dark Season 3 finally unveiled the mystery of Tronte’s father.

Tronte’s father is the Unknown Man, who travels with his younger and older self. This Unknown man is actually Jonas and Martha Nielsen’s son. Hence Jonas is the beginning of his bloodline as well as its end. In addition to this, Jonas is Martha’s nephew and also her great-great-grandfather.

Dark Season 3 Family Tree - Charlotte’s Family

The Dark motto applies incredibly well to Charlotte’s family tree as well. Charlotte Doppler grew up as the adopted granddaughter of H.G Tannhaus. But the identity of her parents remained questionable until season 3. But Dark Season 3 has unveiled this mystery as well, after reading pages from Claudia Tiedemann’s diary, Noah, a time traveller, who is Adam’s follower, discovers true about himself. It turns out Charlotte is his daughter. Charlotte is presently married to Peter Doppler, and they have two daughters together, Franziska and Elisabeth.

One day after the apocalypse Peter and Elisabeth hide in a bunker, and Peter is killed while trying to save his daughter from a rapist. Following this incidence, Elisabeth runs into Noah. They eventually get married and have a daughter. And if you haven’t guessed it already, it’s Charlotte. 

Baby Charlotte gets kidnapped and is never found again by her parents. The older Charlotte and Elisabeth steal Charlotte and take her to Tannhaus, who brings her up. Hence, in conclusion, Charlotte is Elisabeth’s mother and also her daughter. While Elisabeth is Noah’s granddaughter as well as wife. However, things get more interesting when viewers find out that Noah had a sister named Agnes.

Elisabeth’s complex relations and Silja in Dark Season 3

In the future, as her daughter is lost and her husband travels across time to do Adam’s bidding, Elisabeth becomes a military overlord. And her right-hand person is Silja. Silja appears to be a loose thread in the story but she turns out to be as integral to the story as other characters. 

Silja is actually sent back in time by Adam. She meets Bartosz in early 1990s. Due to the events in Dark Season 2 finale, Bartosz is stuck in the past with Jonas, Magnus, and Franziska. Silja and Bartosz get married and have a daughter and son. Their children turn out to be Noah and Agnes.

Some loose threads in the Dark Family tree:

While most unsettling mysteries were revealed in Dark Season 3, some were left hanging by the thread. It is cleared that Regina is Claudia’s daughter, the identity of her father is not revealed. While most fans were speculating that it could be Tronte Nielsen, with whom Claudia had a love affair, it turns out to not be him. It is just clarified by the show’s creators that he is an outsider.

While it is confirmed that Peter is the son of Helge Doppler, his mother never comes into the picture. Hannah and Katharina’s parents had nothing to do with Jonas’s bloodline, they became connected with it only when they got married. And finally, Jonas is the reason behind the birth of most of these people.
