Right away I saw one of his ancestral pathways to one of my favorite ancestral mothers, who is portrayed in Robin Hood. Then I saw another, and another, and another. By the time I finished counting, I found that Matthew has at least 48 different ancestral pathways to Eleanor of Aquitaine in the Family Forest® National Treasure.
There are 16 through King John (son of Eleanor by King Henry II), 30 through Eleanor (daughter of Eleanor by King Henry II), and two through Mary (daughter of Eleanor by King Louis VII of France).
Seeing these types of connections all the time does not keep me from being surprised by new ones I am continually discovering in the Family Forest®.
The Family Forest® Project is Networking Family History with Hollywood™, as well as with American and Old World history.
