Are All But One US Presidents Related?

Produced by The Chicago Sun-Times

If America declared its Independence from the European monarchies in 1776, how is it possible that every single president has descended from European monarchs? If presidents are democratically elected as we are told, what are the odds that American’s always choose members of British and French royal bloodlines?

“The Americas have always been owned and governed by the same royal families of Britain and Europe that conventional history states as being among those defeated during the wars of so-called ‘Independence.’” -Michael Tsarion, “Astrotheology and Sidereal Mythology”

“If it really is the Land of the Free and if, as is claimed, anyone really can become the president, you would fairly expect that the 43 presidents from George Washington to George W. Bush would express that genetic diversity. You’re having a laugh. The presidents of the United States are as much a royal dynasty as anything in Europe, from whence their bloodlines came.” -David Icke, “Tales from the Time Loop”

The below video finds a young girl in California who has put together a Presidential Family Tree. Twelve-year-old BridgeAnne d’Avignon found that all the presidents but one are related to King John of England through a common ancestor.

“They are all cousins and all grandsons of John Lackland” (King John of England) BridgeAnne told KCOY News. The girl searched more than a half million names for months. She started with George Washington, then traced both the male and female family lines to make the connection.

Granted the relationships are sometimes distant 10th or 15th cousins, but in a country with hundreds of millions to choose from, this simply cannot be chance or coincidence. Gary Boyd Roberts, a genealogist at the New England Historic Genealogical Society thoroughly traced these connections in his book “Ancestors of American Presidents.” George W. Bush himself is directly related to 16 former U.S. presidents including George Washington, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James Garfield, Grover Cleveland, Teddy Roosevelt, William H. Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford.

ALL U.S. Presidents Except For One Are Related To One British King

Bush is closely related to the king of Albania and has kinship with every member of the British royal family and the House of Windsor. He is related to 20 British Dukes, the 13th cousin of Britain’s Queen Mother, and of her daughter Queen Elizabeth. He is 13th cousin once removed from Prince Charles and has direct descent from King Henry III, Charles II, and Edward I of England. Through the House of Windsor and King Henry III, the Bush’s and Bill Clinton are genetically related as well.

    If you take just about anyone in the USA and do their geneology, you find out they were related to kings. Presidents aren’t special, they are just the people who geneologies have been done on.
    Its not that hard to do the math and figure this out, we all only have so many ancestors. You have to be pretty gullible to think its unusual for the presidents. But, lots of money is made in the USA off gullible people.

      Steve we tend to agree with you, but do you not find it even a little strange that ALL but 1 of the presidents are related to exactly the same king?

      • http://Website Cheryl Peterson

        I do not find that strange. When we traced our family, we found we were directly decended from nobility. Not royalty, but we stopped in the 14th century. And with all the stars included. What are they saying its a conspirasy that they are stars also? I think that just shows everyone is related.

      • http://Website Nathanael

        Not strange in the least. As Steve said, everyone of us with European blood is descended from royalty. Wikipedia has an excellent article on Most recent Common Ancestor that also talks about the Identical Ancestors Point – that point, going back in history at which everyone alive then is the ancestor of everyone alive today – that is, all of us alive today are descended from all of them alive then. The only question remaining is when is “then”?

        Restricting ourselves to European ancestry, there were some mathematical modeling exercises on population dispersal patterns performed back in the nineties at a university in England (my copy of the research is at home right now) which suggested that, for Europeans, the IAP was only a out 800 years ago. That is, every European (and descendent of Europeans) alive today is a descendent of every European that ever live prior to the 13th century. This includes John Lackland (b. 1166).

        The reason so many presidents are descendants of John Lackland is simply because we ALL are. In my own family line, he is my 16th, 18th AND 19th great-grandfather, as well as great uncle and several flavors of cousin through multiple different lines.

        And as to poor outcast Martin van Buren, I’d bet my left arm he, too, is a Plantagenet. The girl just didn’t find the connection.

        • http://Website chris

          actually it has been proven that martin van buren and FDR were related. in that case, since all other presidents were, he must also be.

          • http://Website CFT

            You can’t really use deductive reasoning for that. Martin Van Buren was the first President to have been borne to immigrant parents (the Netherlands). Possibly, his lineage ran down to Roosevelt but that doesn’t mean that all of Roosevelt’s common ancestry was shared with Martin Van Buren, just that one link that binds their lineage together.

            Anyway, this does seem suspicious though if the lineage of these Presidents could be tracked down to even Barack Obama’s mother, there really must be a common link. But we do have to remember that the President has English blood from his mother’s side and since after the time of Nordic rule, the British were limited to each other when it came to reproduction (since the French treated their British subjects as second class citizens) inbreeding would’ve probably been common and so the kings of England (no matter how much they inbreed) will always share some blood with their subjects.

            But if you really want to look back to human history fine, we’re all “black”, case closed! There are even theories that suggest that Europeans and Asians were the result of tribes that bred with Neanderthals so before you try to push some purity crap (there will be people) remember that the “Blacks” are probably as pure as the Homo sapien sapien can get. This coming from some guy that has genetic links back to both Europe and Asia….

            US Presidents Martin Van Buren, Theodore Roosevelt and (his niece Eleanor Roosevelt and her husband) Franklin D. Roosevelt, and George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush (and I) do descend from Amsterdam emigrant Captain Hendrick de Boogh (b. c. 1620) and his wife Mitje Slagboom (sister of Mrs. Jonas Bronck).

            I have yet to research the Netherlands ancestry of emigrant Hendrick de Boogh and his wife (or of Martin Van Buren other ancestors), but it is possible they descend from royalty–given their prior centuries of history in northern Europe in a smaller population, smaller gene pool.

            So yes–Martin Van Buren and FDR are cousins.

      Related to KingS, not one King, brother. It is not a coincidence, and if it is, then it is a HUGE one.

      • http://Website Cillendor

        If all of the RECENT presidents were related then I’d buy it, but the conspiracy wouldn’t have been running with George Washington and the like. The first many presidents we had were 100% British stock. Eventually as other nationalities immigrated that began to change, but the fact that 42/43 presidents are related is a cool fact at best.

  • http://Website Sterling

    You can say that again Cheryl, there’s nothing suspicious about this. In fact if everyone went and researched their own lineage they would find that they are also most likely related to the nobles of Britain.

  • http://Website laura

    Yes, this is odd, and no, not everyone has nobility in their family. In fact, the vast majority of us don’t. The fact that even though Obama’s father is from Africa, but he’s still related to the former presidents and King John, is proof to me that there’s more to this than chance. If half were from common lines, that’d be one thing, but every single one of them are related….the odds of that happening are very, very, VERY slim.

  • http://Website Pain

    Ok everyone’s related somehow. But for EVERY ONE to come from the same damn person, that’s some wtf type shit. It’s basically like all of them are cousins. The it be like 9th and 8th cousins. That’s too close fam. Something up with that.

  • http://Website jasontarbay

    ok. this is odd. perhaps it takes a more technical handle on the amth here. you see yes, we all are related, and yes at some point back we can trace our lineage perhaps to one or two famous or infamous noble or monarch distant relatives. but there is a significant differance between a 100th cousin and a 9th or 10th cousin. for SO MANY of these people to be relatively closely related 5-10th cousins is mathmatically astounding. it CAN NOT be a coincidance. but you folk who dont see it as odd that indeed the majority of our leaders share common bloodlines perhaps you should not be so gullible yourselves. i prefer to think critically here. THIS CAN NOT be coincidance. wake up people.

      What was the population back in the time when these royal families were flourished and powerful? Lets compare these royal families to the normal and regular families at their time, what would you notice from the average number of children, and the infant and child mortality rate? Which families’ sons have to fight in battles, die in hunger, sickness from malnutrition, poor care, limited protection? Royal family had ample resources and safety measures and that directly result more children, more families, and eventually millions more cousins. I have heard too many of my friends saying they were loyal bloods and there’s no reason for me to disbelieve that since who has the resources to keep the records? how do you verify the records? what families have the most children? Even if all the presidents are from the same bloodline and are related. What kind of impact has it on us? Are they forming an alliance? Are republican presidents helping democratic presidents? Don’t tell me theres family feud and stuff. Conclusion: Their relations have no direct impact on any of our lives. You guys can believe and believe what you believe. Stop saying things like “you think USA is a free country?”

    Actually, the basic truth is that they are Satan;s leader angels, which are found listed in the Bible, who decended to this planet with Satan, and have always been the ” Ruling Elete”, who are recicled at death into another human decendent within there own blood line, forever.

    Sorry, we (Researchers at University of New Amsterdam) figured this out long before the little girl did, but kudos to her she did great work, incidentally we know how all 44 are related to one Royal Granddad, but to get that you have to switch Royal Granddads from the John Lackland for the 43 to another for all 44 & its Van Buren (who is a 4th cousin of mine as well who is missing from the Lackland grandchild list, but all 44 presidents are Royal grandchildren of Charlemagne… and he has tens of millions of grandchildren, so tens of millions of people are Royal Cousins with all the presidents, as am I and maybe a few of you reading this & chances are more than we shall ever know, but what else is to be discovered, that all 44 presidents are grandchildren of David & Solomon & Cousins with Jesus & Grandchildren of Noah & Adam & Eve… Far out man….. We are all related history is one grandparent & cousin battle another endlessly… but one other thing, we also figured out how to provide enough food using a limited supply for an eventual infinite population with only positive impacts on the environment, thus no longer having a capacity limit, that is if you use our free food & medicine system we are working on creating as we speak, so many amazing inventions & incredible things to come, wouldn’t know where to begin… Hope everyone has a wonderful week, Peace Love & Much Happiness

      So, YOU (while researching at the University of New Amsterdam) figured out that ALL 44 are related…and NOWHERE during your “research” did you realize that there have only been 43 presidents? One of served 2 non-consecutive 4 year terms…i’ll give you a hint it was Grover Cleveland in the 1800’s.

    Americans Were all told anyone can grow up to become The President of USA

    however it seems only people who are related to “the kings of the Earth”
    may be eligible.

    And yes Romney is a Cousin of Bush Family
    They both share John Smith
    (Mormon creator/High Ranking Free-Mason)
    as an ancestor.

    Will be a Big Surprise if he is not the next president

    The funniest part of this is that they skip over who John Lackland really was. Younger brother of Richard the Lionhearted, forced to sign the Magna Charta by his barons to keep power. Considered the worst King in the history of England. Villain of the Robin Hood legends, and such a bad king that the royal families of England have never had another king named John. Yep, Barack, right up your alley.

    The thing is, DC Federalists LIE, especially about their bloodlines if they have something to hide. Lincoln is a good example as he is exactly like Obama in that he was illegitimate, not born where re-written history has placed him, and his real father is not who DC has ‘appointed’ him to be for their fabricated ‘history’. .so none of it can be totally accurate.

    I can at least say that it’s not suspicious at all that almost every president has royal blood. Think about it. People of political power tend to have offspring that keep the family business going and make it their occupation in life too. As for every white European existing today that is related to someone of royal blood is a false claim. If you honestly believe that even 800 years ago that all Europeans can be traced back to John lackland then you must not understand how many people in the UK back then that weren’t related to royal blood. A lot of the poor people back then with absolutely NO ROYALTY. So chances are you’re not related to anyone of royal blood, you would have to go back way before that to say we “all” share a royal bloodline.

    How does his pot use in anyway affect his credibility? Does drinking alcohol affect your credibility? How about smoking cigarettes? Prescription medicine? No? Then maybe you need to stop making moronic assumptions. If anything you should base his credibility on, oh I don’t know, his credentials, maybe? How are people this stupid?

    I’m not saying his username isn’t retarded but basing your view on his credibility as a social commentator on said username is equally retarded.

  • really


    No, that’s not funny, because Richard was succeeded by John after his death. Richard had no (legitimate) children to succeed him; otherwise I have little doubt they would have been directly descended from Richard rather than John. In either case all of them are still related to Richard I.

    I really don’t see the Obama connection, to be honest, but I realize that was probably just a stupid attempt to get a rise out of someone.

    It would make sense for all the rich people to be distantly related since the highest class tends to be the smallest and the majority of the population is middle or lower class. Old money stays within the bloodlines, so does their high positions in society and our country.

    I did some math. If 80% of Americans are related to english royalty (I don’t know the statistic), there’s only a 0.007% chance that 43 of them at random are related to them. (I did 0.8 to the 43rd power).

    If 90% of Americans are related to British royalty, the chance is only 1.1%

    If it’s 95%, then there is a 1 in 9 chance that this president thing would happen.

    So whether you should believe this or not depends on the percentage of Americans that are related to british royalty, Even if it was as high as 95%, I would still think something is up. Then again, you have to take into account that maybe richer people are more likely to have royal relations? But even if that was true, this whole thing is sketchy.

    We could not have all come from two people, Adam and Eve, because it is impossible to get all the nationalities from two people such as Indian, black, Chinese, Mexican, etc. Maybe some expert in this field can post about this. Also, can experts on the odds of these presidents being related please post and give the odds of something like this happening, all presidents being related. Is it strange or not. Some say it is strange and others say so what we are all related, so it isn’t so strange. But all the nationalities did not come from two people.

    That just proves we don’t live in the land of the free and the Home of the brave. We fought the revolutionary war to get out from under the aristocracy of Europe. They asked Benjamin Franklin what they were giving the people and he said “A Republic, madam if you can keep it”. A republic is ruled by minoritiy vote a democracy is ruled by the majority. Voting is a waste of time now. We’re headed for the One World Government, One World Religion. They are going to try to knock out the middle class so you have a rich and a poor class just like before.

    if you go back far enough we’re all related in some way

  • Ray

    Many family lines were killed off by the plagues. The upper class could go to their estates to avoid the sickness. There, noble lines had a better chance to have children. Many people today can trace their lines back to nobles. I have taught family history classes and many times my students have traced their lines back to Adam. All kings believed that they had the “divine right to rule” so they made up lines that came from Adam. I have worked on my lines for 40 years and found many links to kings.

    Everyone has 16 great grandparents and each generation doubles (if cousins do not marry), so if you trace your line 10 generations there are over 1000 ancestors and over 2000 if you go back one more generation. So if you go back to the year 1000 AD there could be 10s of thousand of ancestors. So if only one is a royal (or the bastard of a royal), there is your line to royalty.

    John Adams/John Quincy Adams & George H.W. Bush/George W. Bush are father and son Presidents. Teddy Roosevelt & FDR are 5th cousins. 6 of the 43 men who have been president are closely related already (much more so than is stated above). That tells you a lot. Anyone can be president…..yeah right!
