Subject: Family tree
> Hi Lewis,
> I've been doing a bit more work on our family tree, and have found that through Lucy Staples,
wife of Nathaniel Hanscom, our 4th great grandfather. we have some very interesting relatives.
> How about Alfonso the Slobberer, one of the kings of Spain? Or Duncan the Diseased, King
of Scotland? Or Aethelred the Unready, King of England? What a fascinating collection of people!
> It turns out that we are directly descended from William I of England (William the Conqueror),
otherwise known as William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy, who invaded England in 1066.
> It gets easier to trace the family tree when you hit a royal family, since people tend
to keep track of their kings and queens better than the common folk. I've even found out that William the Conqueror was about
5'10", a couple of inches taller than most men of his time. He was very healthy, but got quite fat as he grew older. The King
of France at the time said that William looked like he was pregnant!
We have ancestors from all over the place - many of the royal houses of Europe.
