it always makes me laugh that for all 'married into royalty' princesses, they always have some sort of noble or royal connection.... of course, if we all go back enough in our genealogies we will all reach at some point a link to someone who was noble born, royal, a prominent military person or a celebrity of some sort....

Exactly - it's silly to try impress the public with basically a "fattened resume." Just because someone was a public official doesn't necessarily equate to a VIP. Also even the fact that a "married into royalty" princess descends from a royal 800 years ago doesn't make them "royal." The fact that anybody's 42 great-grandfather was a king just isn't...well...impressive. I am more impressed by a person's presentation of themself. For instance, in the SRF, Queen Silvia has always had a fantastic attitude toward people, while Chris O'Neill flips-off the paps every other day. Silvia had, and still has, realistic expectations of her position and has always been gracious toward others in public, while Chris is the polar opposite - he can be an such an @$$.

I don't think that's what's happening at all.

People are interested in genealogy. Maybe not everyone, but a lot of people. People are even more interested when said genealogy connects themselves to someone who is a historical figure, and even more so when connecting famous people to historical figures. I mean, really, there's a franchise of TV shows dedicated to showing the genealogy of various celebrities.

I highly doubt most of the genealogists who look into the ancestry of the commoners people who have married into royal families start out with the intention of finding their royal ancestors. More likely, what they're doing is researching the family in general, not specifically looking for any royal connections. If you're able to go back far enough though you're going to hit nobility and/or royalty at some point.

I do because it is almost becomes a selling point by palace PR when a major royal is newly engaged. The 3rd sentence in your 1st paragraph is exactly my point. I enjoy genealogy but I think people sometimes make more out of a connection than they should, that's all. If Maxima and Silvia are descended from Inca emporors from the 1200's, it's an interesting fact and nothing else. Just as you stated in your last sentence, "if you're able to go back far enough, you're going to hit nobility and / or royalty at some point."

Let us face it. Don Felipe de Borbón y Grecia, Prince of Asturias, Prince of Gerona and of Viana, Duke of Montblanch, Count of Cervera and Lord of Balaguer was watching the news, felt in love with the newsreader and thought that this woman, who was married to someone else, a public figure, from a republican family and thought that this frêle lady was an excellent future Queen of one of the grandest monarchies in the world. So be it. Digging in Miss Ortiz' family tree does not make her retro-actively more suitable.

The only part that matters is, "He fell in love". What ever came before in either of their lives, means nothing to this love marriage. Nor should it to anyone but themselves.

The history of the Rocasolano hides big surprises for those who thought that the origin of the family of Queen Letizia was rather modest. Never further from the truth. The magazine Hello! She discovered the authentic lineage of the Queen Letizia.

The Rocasolano were first interested in not revealing his previous Fortune and lineage. In fact, when it was announced the formal commitment of the couple, they commissioned remove network a web that had with the coat of arms of the family and the family tree with the ancestors of the last 500 years. Lineage, on the other hand, which is worth mentioning, as well as economic prosperity, linking some of the relatives of the Queen Letizia with the field of science. In fact, in Madrid's Serrano Street is the Institute of physical chemistry Rocasolano, a Centre for research in chemistry, mainly experimental orientation, which owes its name to Gregorio Antonio Rocasolano, President of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Zaragoza, from 1922 until 1932, and author of physical chemical studies on the living matter.

Millionaires and French ancestors
Los Rocasolano come from France, of the ancient Auvergne (his coat of arms can still be found in a petit-Chateauproximo Lyon), where exercised as Lords of their lands, until a part of the family decided to settle in Spain at the beginning of the 20th century. Miguel Rocasolano left behind centuries of history, bought land and began to build houses in the area of Chamartín (to the North of the capital).
