Its a little thing called history.
cuz there is no other answer i can think of
Seriously? The only way you can think of them becoming royalty is by them being shapeshifting reptilians from dimension X??
and why their bloodline was worshipped in the medievial times and till now?
Who says they were worshiped in medieval times?
The House of Windsor Monarchs were originally the Prince of Orange. They changed their name, as stalkingwolf noted, because they didn't want to sound
to german when they were at war with the germans.
The english overthrew their king, Charles, of the Stuart lineage, and established a Republic, under Cromwell, the Lord-Protector. After his reign and
a short reign by his son, this was done away with, and the descendants of the Stuarts sought a return to the throne, this was called the "Glorious
Revolution" if I am correct. (interstingly, while the stuarts were in exile, in France, the tutor to the princes was Chevalier Ramsay, a Scot, who
more or less invented Scottish Rite masonry [thats a simplification]).
But the English weren't happy with the stuarts, and got ride of them again. Specifically, they didn't want a Catholic on their throne. The most
acceptable claimant to the Throne was William of Orange, who was invited by Parliament to give up his prince-ship and take up the kingly throne.
William of Orange had been married to one of the daughters of James the II, but was a protestant.
The reason why so many royal families are related isn't so much because they descend from one family, but rather because they would so very often
make sure that their married their heirs off to only other royals; dukes, regents, kings, tsars, princes, etc.
However, if your question is 'why was William of Orange considered Royal', thats a different matter.
The William of Orange here is the descendant of a previous William of Orange, called "William the Silent". William the Silent had been a nobleman
in the netherlands when the Spanish ruled it. He joined the rebellion against Spanish imperial rule and was apparently the most popular of the rebel
leaders. William the Silent had been born as the eldest son of a Count, the Count of Nassau, and had inherited the title of Prince of Orange upon the
death of his cousin. The title passed along his lineage.
