Descended from English Monarchs

I learned recently that I am a direct descendent of several prominent English Monarchs. Here is a list of all my ancestors in the line that goes back to William the Conquerer, in the 11th century! For each monarch, the crown icon is a link to the relevant page at britannia.com.

Thanks to the Wingfield Family Society for providing much of this information.

There are 29 generations represented here, which means I am the great27 grandson of King William I.
