I, too, am a direct descendant of King John (my 22nd great granddaddy). Additionally, I'm also directly descended from Magna Carta barons Richard De Clare, Gilbert De Clare, Robert De Vere, and John De Lacy, as well as William Marshal, the "greatest knight who ever lived," who brokered the Magna Carta between John and the barons. Can I be president now?
