Royal Family Trees
If you are interested in genealogy or history, royal family trees are excellent illustrations of the strange, convoluted, and always interesting tales of kings, queens and nobility. Take a look at a few them and you will be able to find the most remarkable tales with every line.
Thanks to both the adequate resources and the bookkeeping available to the nobility, royal family trees are among the most complete, most accurate, and longest kept family trees in the world. The nobility is often very interested in the genealogy of its members, as it is important to figure out just who is noble and who is not. Once upon a time, it was assumed that those with royal blood were superior to those without, so a precise role of all the members of the nobility was necessary to ensure that nothing was spoiled by mixing with those of inferior birth.
However, one of the problems with that was the fact that there was a very limited number of noble persons available. Thus, intermixing was a severe problem in the gene pool. So, when you look at a royal family tree, there will be lines that diverge, then suddenly meet up again a few generations down the road, when two distantly related, or sometimes not so distantly related people joined together and started creating new nobility. Thus, the generations started having that many more congenital problems, simply because they were receiving several genes that weren’t quite formed right and were being passed down with every generation, instead of being diluted by spreading them out amongst the general populace.
As well, there constant marriages and remarriages of many members of the nobility make some interesting viewing. King Henry XIII of the England comes immediately to mind. This kind was marriage six times during his reign, meaning that he needed to either divorce or kill off his first five wives at the very least. When reading a royal family tree, every line is a story and every person a somebody. You don’t need to wonder who any of the names are, they will show up in history books somewhere.
