England’s Multi-Ethnic Royal Family

Looking into the tree of England’s Royal Family, you’ll see a European mix of ancestry and some Middle Eastern too. If you look carefully at one of Queen Elizabeth’s crowns, you’ll see the Maltese cross, symbolizing England’s historic ties to Germany. The Viking/Norwegian ancestry comes from William the Conqueror who invaded England back in 1066 and a pretty French girl may also play a part in this story.

Moving ahead in history, Henry VII hoped to bring Scottish ties to the family, so married his daughter Margaret, to the King of Scotland. Margaret is famously known as Mary Queen of Scots. This same Henry married his son Arthur to the Princess of Spain, Catherine of Aragon. There appear to be Jewish ties too, though they go back further into ancient history. I think it’s fair to say that like most of us, England’s Royal Family is multi-ethnic.
