You can’t have missed all this stuff about Danny Dyer being a direct descendent of William the Conqueror. The BBC have even given him a bleddy show all about it. Well here’s news (although nobody seems to believe when I tell them but it is absolutely true)…… SO AM I !!!
No – Really, I promise it is 100% true…….Yep – me and Bill we go way back. Royal blood in my veins (aswell as the green stuff).
The thing is though….. and I hope you’re sitting down for this – SO ARE YOU – (assuming you’re a white European).
How do I know? Well all is explained in the link below (and in the superb book ‘A Brief History of Everyone who Ever Lived’ by Adam Rutherford) - but basically it’s a statistical certainty, and mathematical modelling shows that all of us of white European descent share a common ancestor that lived as recently as 600 years ago. Even more wonderful (well I think it’s wonderful) is that every single person alive today anywhere in the world has a common ancestor that lived somewhere in Asia only 3,400 years ago. We’re all related … every single one of us….. even Exeter fans (although they obviously don’t have to go back far at all to find their common ancestor).
Seriously – have a read which explains it much better than I could and if interested buy the book by Adam Rutherford.
