Chapter 52 Our FamilyÕs Connections to 63 British Monarchs
For the approximate 1,500 years shown in this chart, my relatives occupied an English throne and ruled England for about 90% of the time. Out of 77 Kings, Queens and Rulers listed, there are 63 (82% of them) who are related in my heritage.
Some are wonderful and some are embarrassing! There were about 100 years our family did not have the throne, and those years all were prior to William the ConquerorÕs Battle of Hastings in 1066, except for those seven years that Oliver and Richard Cromwell were Commonwealth rulers.
Here is the chart to reveal these wonderful relational connections.
HereÕs another chart that has some of the same Monarchs, plus some other non-British world leaders.
