All people are descended via various racial or ethnic lines of antiquity, but in the case of most, records do not exist. The British Royal Family is one of the few families, for whom ancestry can be traced to many notable lineages of the antiquity. They can be traced from Saxon, Scottish (Stuart dynasty), Welsh (Tudor dynasty), Irish, German (Hanover and Windsor), French (Norman and Angevin), Russian, Frank and perhaps even Byzantine lineages.
