Thanks for having me!
I am a direct descendent of the Plantagenets. Fulk 1, Geoffrey Plantagenet, HenryII, John Plantagenet, Henry III, Edward I, Edward II, and Edward III were all my great-grandfathers. I am closely related to Stuarts, Tudors, and Hanovers and am 15 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II.
I also have a son with Porphyria. His geneticist questioned if we had a strong royal blood line and I had never looked into our ancestry before. I have discovered the royal blood line due to my son's diagnosis.
I am trying to connect with other people with Porphyria who also have strong royal ancestry. Just trying to understand the diagnosis and report back anything substantial to the genetics team.
Thank you and I am very excited to be here.
