The first version of nim language  https://nim-lang.org/ was written in
Pascal. Here are the sources

Many times, when compiler is mature, the compiler is re-written in the
target language itself. Freepascal compiler is written in Freepascal.

First version of compiler must be written in other language, (of course,
the are not compilers for the language ), usually a language that
generates binary, compiling is very demanding to rely on virtual
machines Probably that is why there are not Java compilers written in
Java, or Python or Perl compilers written in Python or Perl . As usual,
the most popular language will be most used language: C, C++
