Jump to: navigation, search

All people are descended via various racial or ethnic lines of antiquity, but in most cases, records do not exist. The British Royal Family is one of the few families for which ancestry can be traced to many notable lineages of antiquity. Their lineage can be traced back to the Saxons, Scottish (Stuart dynasty), Welsh (Tudor dynasty), Irish, Germans (Hanover and Windsor), French (Norman and Angevin), Russians, Franks and perhaps even Byzantines.

Ancestry[edit]

Diana, Princess of Wales (Diana Spencer) was born into a British noble family. Her ancestry includes many royals and nobles.


Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Catherine Middleton) descended from King Edward III through two of his sons: Lionel of Antwerp and John of Gaunt.

  • Through a daughter of Lionel of Antwerp, Philippa of Clarence (18x great grandmother of Catherine)
  • Through an illegitimate daughter of John of Gaunt, Joan Beaufort (17x great grandmother of Catherine through daughter Eleanor Percy)


Also descending from King Edward III is George Washington. Washington descents through three of Edward III sons: Lionel of Antwerp, John of Gaunt, and Edmund of Langley.

  • Through a daughter of Lionel of Antwerp, Philippa of Clarence (11x great grandmother of Washington)
  • Through an illegitimate daughter of John of Gaunt, Joan Beaufort
    • Through daughter Eleanor Percy (9x great grandmother of Washington on his father's side)

  • Through a daughter of Edmund of Langley, Constance of York, (through her daughter Isabel le Despenser, an ancestor of Washington's mother)[2]


Common ancestors:

  • Diana, Catherine, and Washington all descend from King Edward III through his son's, Lionel of Antwerp's, daughter Philippa of Clarence and through another son's, John of Gaunt, daughter Joan Beaufort.[3] Their closest common ancestors are Margaret Percy (great granddaughter of Joan Beaufort and 2x great granddaughter of Philippa of Clarence) and Sir William Gascoigne (2x great grandson of Joan Beaufort).
