  1. I have been researching my ancestry and I too have Mary Boleyn as my 13th great grandmother as well as many royal ancestors including the Tudor King Henry VII as my 17th great grandfather.

    1. Don’t you just know that Queen Elizabeth I is revolving in her grave knowing that the descendant of the “She-wolf”, Lettice Knollys, is sitting on the throne of England!

    That makes Queen Elizabeth Ii my cousin as I am descended from Mary Boleyn though our line diverges 3 generations later at Frances Devereaux ERII and I share many, many other ancestors.
