But when you look closely into the lives of these "royals" and discover how insane George 3rd really was, where the "Hapsburg lip" came from, and their extremely loose moral code, they start to appear a lot less attractive as far as role models for ancestors. Most of our ancestors were in fact pretty respectable people, even if they had no royal connections whatever !! Bill Whitney
