An Early Morning Conversation

Collin: What did you do while you were awake last night?

Me: Genealogy. I finally found some info on the Knight side of things. Turns out that I'm a direct descendant of King Henry I!

Collin: Wow!

Me: Yeah! I was thinking as the dates on these people went farther and farther back that they never seemed to keep track of peasants so I had to be related to nobles somehow. And then I saw it - Margaret de Clare, daughter of Gilbert de Clare. He was married to Joan Plantagent, who, if I'm not mistaken, was called The Fair Maid of Kent.

Collin: To her face.
