Well, I'll be a monarch's uncle....that is so weird....But not entirely surprising.
And no, I don't believe that everybody is related to somebody somehow. If you think about all the people that were in Britain, in the late Iron Age
(around 1000 BC), the population was estimated to be somewhere between 1 and 1.5 million people. Move that time up two thousand years, and imagine
how many more Brits there were. Since there were only a few royals and rulers, what are the odds that all the US presidents, save for one, come from
the same lineage?
I do think there is something to this bloodline thing, and I'm pretty darned sure that I am not related to any of those people. So unless I'm
vaguely related to Vlad the Impaler, via Slavic blood, I have no ties to the Bushes, and I know, as I have no British blood in me, that I'm not
related to any of those people.
Do the math, and you'll start to see that there is something to the idea that certain bloodlines perpetuate themselves and elevate themselves at the
cost of others.
