My extremely cool Uncle Steve is into genealogical research and he's done a TON of it. As it just so happens, he even reads my blog sometimes! Aw. Isn't that nice? He wrote saying he had seen my last post on Macbeth, and is SO super nice (have I said that already?) that he sent me some stuff he'd found related to what we were studying! Yep. Cool. Anyway, somewhere in his research he had run across the fact that my dad's side of the family is actually descendant from the in real life King Duncan I and his son Malcolm III, the historical figures on whom Shakespeare based his work.
Of course, I simply had to share. It may be my only claim to fame! ;)
King Duncan I
King Malcolm III
Can you see the family resemblance?
