Fifth Degree: John Smith
|"You're so well-developed for a 10 year old"|
Fourth Degree: Pocahontas
Just a few years earlier, a 10-year-old Pocahontas saved the sweet tush of Captain John Smith. If the two were lovers at that time it would be VERY, VERY GROSS. Evidently, Disney Studios were under the impression that Native Americans shot their kids full of steroids to induce early puberty, but that's another post.
While Captain Smith was gallavanting on Martha's Vineyard, Pocahontas was falling for, and marrying John Rolfe. It was THAT union that lead to peace between her father and the pilgrims (Jamestown, VA.)
Pocahontas traveled to England with her new husband (married in 1614), and met King James and Queen Anne. She was the toast of English society and enjoyed sniffing the Queen's lace and reading the king's nifty new bible.
Second Degree: King James II
A few kings later, King James II ascended to the throne.

James II was a genuflecting, ring-kissing, relic-lovin' Catholic!
|Pope Alexander VIII|
Fiurst Degree: Pope Alexander VIII
This blog treats bloodlines as a single degree. Since (most) of the popes did not have a papal lineage, I'm considering them as one royal lineage from St. Peter. Alexander was Pope #242, John Paul II was 265.
Did you know?
|John Paul II|
