Might Barack Obama and nearly all US presidents descended from King John? A seventh-grader thinks so:
In the genes? Seventh grader says bloodlines of 42 of 43 U.S. Presidents link back to King John of England
Californian’s genealogy project links majority of commander-in-chiefs to Magna Carta signer. Finds out she’s related to President Obama to boot.BridgeAnne d’Avignon traced the 43 presidents’ male and female family lines and discovered that 42 are linked to King John Lackland, known for signing the Magna Carta in 1215, KCOY reported.
The above was also reported in a UK article (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2183858/All-presidents-bar-directly-descended-medieval-English-king.html#ixzz22jRAICEB). The UK article mentioned that all US presidents, except Martin Van Buren, seem to have been connected to King John. At this point in time, it is hard to know if this conclusion is completely accurate as it does not seem to have had a lot of official review.
If true, it certainly shows an interesting connection between the old royal family of Britain and the top rulers of the USA.
King John himself apparently was not that into Catholicism (nor probably the Bible) as the following suggests:
John’s lack of religious conviction has been noted by contemporary chroniclers and later historians, with some suspecting that John was at best impious…Contemporary chroniclers catalogued his various anti-religious habits at length, including his failure to take communion, his blasphemous remarks, and his witty but scandalous jokes about church doctrine, including jokes about the implausibility of the Resurrection. They commented on the paucity of John’s charitable donations to the church…Financial records show a normal royal household engaged in the usual feasts and pious observances – albeit with many records showing John’s offerings to the poor to atone for routinely breaking church rules and guidance.

So, apparently it this British ruler who many US presidents descended from.
