A Genealogist does like
On hidden paths to take a hike,
To follow up the faintest track
Which may lead somewhat further back.
And on the Geni site, I find
They trace some paths of strangest kind –
Two such have had me highly placed,
With distant links to royals traced.
Though not descended, I am fated
To be, through marriages, related
To Irish High King, Brian Boru,
Which seven-times great aunt comes through.
Half-sister of this auntie dear
Was married to, it would appear,
A man whose sister’s husband had
The famous High King for a Dad.
Elizabeth the Second, too,
Has links by marriage coming through:
Involves Camilla, and entails
Her marriage to the Prince of Wales.
No, here I am not kidding you,
These-here relationships are true,
I do not think, though, that the Queen,
To have me stay, will be agree’n’.
