    Ha, I just remembered something, one of the DNA services I subscribed to informed me last year that I'm directly descended from Niall of the Nine Hostages... so there's a royal.

    I forgot about that, because I thought it was nonsense, I mean how could they possible know that. You could just as easily say anyone with Irish genes is descended from n (some ancient Irish reproducer).

    Any ruler would make me uncomfortable, but any one that wasn't influenced by the British Isles would be hard to put up with.

    The deal with Niall of the Nine Hostages might be like ascribing all Asiatic ancestry to Genghis Khan.

    Wouldn't it also trouble your conscience if you found out that you descended from a foreign ruler who oppressed your People? It would make you feel like a collaborator, right? Rape blood is awesome! Just kidding.

    The last reigning monarch in my lineage I believe is King Christian III of Denmark and Norway (1503-1559).

    Does Otto von Bismarck count? I'm related to him through his mother (Mencken).
