If you’ll recall, on February 4, 2013, I posted news about how King Richard III‘s remains had been found. I also wrote about how Canadian-born cabinet-maker Michael Isben might be an heir to the monarch.
Well, it’s official: DNA matched positive! He is the proud 17th great-grandson of the King!
That’s not all he learned that fateful day. He learned of another descendant – a relative he hadn’t known about. The “new” cousin would rather remain anonymous.
