Thread Name: Burns lyric query - 'And All That"
Subject: RE: Burns lyric query
"Then we have three generations where they were neither born in Britain or had British parents" was the point I was making. There is no direct line of descent."

Still don't get what you are saying just because someone isn't born in Britain it doesn't mean they aren't descended from their ancestors. I have showed the descent through Princess Elizabeth to Sophia of Hanover to her son George I. Princess Elizabeth was the eldest surviving child of James VI and was Charles I's eldest sister. Just because someone is either a younger brother or a female it doesn't mean they are any less descended from their parents than the eldest son is! What you actually said was that the present royal line had 'no historic connections to any Scottish/British line" which is what I replied too and as I have shown false.
