The So-Called Original Duck Family Tree

Don Rosa's Duck Family Tree is often considered the "classic", iconic form of the Duck Family Tree.

Duck Family Trees are genealogical representations of Donald Duck's family.

HistoryEdit

Even if one only counts those of Donald Duck's relatives created by Carl Barks, they still amount to at least two dozens; and if all authors are taken into account, the number explodes to more than a hundred. Since the fifties, it has been a long running task taken by both Duck fans and official creators to create a plausible version of Donald Duck's family tree.

Some Trees present themselves as in-universe objects within stories, or give an in-universe justification for their existence even though they exist as standalone illustrations; others are devoid of a framing device and simply present new facts about the Duck universe without any intermediate steps.

As the vast majority of such trees, if they even have a title, are simply entitled The Duck Family Tree, they are referred to on this Wiki and elsewhere by commonly-accepted descriptors or nicknames.
