Blance of Artois was a very interesting woman. A French Princess by birth and English Princess by marriage, she is also a direct ancestress of the present Queen:

- Blanche of Artois
- Henry, 3rd Earl of Lancaster
- Maud of Lancaster
- Elizabeth de Burgh, 4th Countess of Ulster
- Philippa, 5th Countess of Ulster
- Roger Mortimer, 4th Earl of March
- Anne de Mortimer (through whom the House of York claimed the Throne during the War of Roses)
- Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York
- Edward IV of England
- Elizabeth of York
- Margaret Tudor
- James V of Scotland
- Mary, Queen of Scots
- James I of England and VI of Scotland
- Elizabeth of Bohemia
- Sophia, Electress of Hanover
- George I of Great Britain
- George II of Great Britain
- Frederick, Prince of Wales
- George III of the United Kingdom
- Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn
- Queen Victoria
- Edward VII of the United Kingdom
- George V of the United Kingdom
- George VI of the United Kingdom
- Queen Elizabeth II

That's just one of the lines, mind you; there are at least five different lines through Queen Elizabeth's maternal and paternal sides.

And Queen of Navarre by marriage and then later Regent,I'm amazed this woman hasn't had a biography written about her and her life!

Thanks for posting her line,makes her even more of interest.
