Arteriosclerosis has a lot of contributing causes, including age. In fact, most people over 50 have arterial plaques and this would be particularly
true of anyone who ate rich foods (like queens), was overweight (like some queens), sat around a lot, and so forth.
I doubt your ancestors are responsible for everyone who has/had arteriosclerosis.
But an ancestor who cooked for royalty -- there's an interesting story! Can you tie it into any favorite recipes?
(moving this to chit chat because .... well... Imperial Russia isn't an ancient or lost civilization)
