My odd geneology lesson

So over the weekend I found out that I am a distant relative to the royal family by way of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. I am still dwelling in this but from what I have found I now know why my life's path has been laid before me in the way that it has. I enjoy this little bit of family history but will not embrace it as it would cause stir and uproar. I simply thought that my friends in the UK would enjoy this so that is why I'm posting it.

    Wow, amazing news tricklebickle but wait, it gets better!

    What not many Americans know is that one privilage accorded to royalty is the right, if they so choose, to have their way with the finest examples of womanhood Britain has to offer.

    These two fair maidens would like a word with you.

    By Jove, If the lass in pink can finish a Stella in one, I shall be compelled to petition her father for her hand in matrimony. If he can be located.

    Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon - The Queen Mother as she is known over this side of the pond!

    Did you also know.....

    The Royal We

    The mathematical study of genealogy indicates that everyone in the world is descended from Nefertiti and Confucius, and everyone of European ancestry is descended from Muhammad and Charlemagne!!!

    You Are Descended from Royalty

    Every time I think about finding kings and queens in the family tree, I create a mental image of the would-be social climbers of years ago who researched family trees in hopes of proving themselves to be "better" than the average person. How little they knew. It seems that the "average person" also has royal ancestry. In fact, there is nothing more common than having a few bluebloods in the family tree.

    well as I stated I'm not embracing this little find like most would because it really isn't very important, I simple posted it in hopes that you and the others from across the way would get a small kick out of it.
