HENRY VIII LOSES HIS HEAD

Only 500 years or so too late,¬† Karma finally takes its toll of England’s Nero…

 

HENRY

Strangely,¬† I found this amusing image on the very day I found out my oldest known relative was (according to Wikitree) related to old Henry ‘in the 29th degree’ via Henry’s sister Margaret “Tudor”. I admit I was inconsolable for a bit…but then had to think of the good ne…ie that also means a distant connection¬† with the House of York! And it could have been worse–could always have been Buckingham!

A recursive definitition

I really hate seeing this first word abused, so here goes:

ANCESTOR: One of your parents or their ancestors.

COLLATERAL ANCESTOR: The sibling of an ancestor.

The cousin, however close or distant, of an ancestor does not fit either definition.
