    Did the Nietzsche family also believe this myth? Lots of people claim descent from royalty in the USA. Whether it's real or imagined, it's a common phenomenon.

    Or maybe they really did have some kind of Slavic ancestry. There were Slavic groups who got assimilated to Germany. The Wends come to mind. The name Nietzsche does not sound German at all to me. The biographer might be wrong.
    It's no secret that Nietzsche had a certain aversion to the type of the contented bourgeois of Imperial Germany and stressed his European "cosmopolitanism". He didn't like the bourgeois society of his era. I reread yesterday the part in "Ecce Homo" where he says approximately: "I'm even more German than these average German citizens", and then goes over to his supposed ancestors of Polish nobility.

    The surname "Nietzsche" is an East-Middle German (Thuringia, [Upper] Saxony, Silesia) derivation of the first name "Nikolaus". The letter order "tz-sch" doesn't appear in High German, but is characteristic for some person and place names here. East of Saale there were indeed Slavic groups integrated and absorbed during respectively then with the time after the German Medieval eastern settlement. He maybe has not only German, but also Wendish ancestors if one would go back to Middle Ages.
    Maybe in later times also one ancestrial line leads to some Slavic ancestor of the Wendish group in the Lausitz which was as bigger area only little touched by German settlement and remained as Slavic group until today. However, as far as I see, these are not more than speculations.

    I just started reading Timeline by Michael Crichton. Fabulous "historical science fiction" novel, science fiction since it uses a technology that hasn't been invented, historical because said technology catapults the stars back to medieval times.

    Read the book. Don't see the movie, I heard it sucked.
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
    Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4)

    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.
