And now after HUNDREDS of years, we have a "Cool" new thing called "Y Chromosome" testing!!! LOL So, If you are "Irish Modal Hapotype M-222" it proves a DIRECT paternal descent from the High King of Ireland!

Many people can prove direct descent from Royalty going back centuries, I've seen a family tree connecting me to Edward III, but it doesn't mean I'm a Prince or can call myself a Royal.

As I said to someone before if you found a Chinaman in your family tree from 400 years ago would you be Chinese ?

I will attempt to answer questions on the Kings and Queens of England and Scotland from 927 AD. I also have some knowledge of European Monarchies.
