I got drawn into a discussion on this on another forum and thought it'd make an interesting topic...then I wikied one of my distant relatives, and found this...

Quote :
He is a direct descendant of King William IV and his mistress Dorothea Jordan and is therefore fifth cousin once removed of Queen Elizabeth II, second cousin once removed of the Conservative party leader David Cameron and first cousin once removed of the historian John Julius Norwich.

Hehe.

No one in our family knows anything about our ancestors... which is quiet sad because i really want to know... when i get older im going to do one of those ancestry things and find out... i hope our family did something great but knowing them they probably didnt...lol

The most notable one in our history is Germain Pilon. According to Wikipedia, he was one of the most important sculptors of the French Renaissance. I guess he has a few works in the Louvre.

We have a few minor members of royalty and minor aristocrats in our ancestry too. Probably quite a few of my ancestors met Madame Guillotine.

That's pretty much all I know about personally.
