6 degrees of separation law connects us all.
Six degrees of separation refers to the idea that everyone is on average approximately six steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made, on average, to connect any two people in six steps or fewer. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare.

I've done genealogy for many years now and I can guarantee they did not check all the documentation needed to prove this ancestry. Ancestry.com has a massive database but it is not all correct. I have found many errors, even errors in my tree from the trusted Mormons.
Case in point. My family was supposed to be related to Davy Crockett and his lineage is well documented on Ancestry. My gggggrandmother was a Crockett and supposedly descended from Samuel Crockett, a brother to Davey's grandfather. Dna has proved all the many Crocketts here are not related to Davy. As for my line, the Samuel Crockett was actually here before Davy's family.
I dare say we would all find ourselves in some way related to royalty if we followed all our many lines and actually checked the documentation required to prove it. In fact, many if not most of the families who came to America were of some wealth or they could not have made the trip.
As we say here on ATS, source, pics, or in this case, documentation, or it isn't so.

That is how big this conspiracy really is.
And this has been posted before.
Everybody is descended from kings.
