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.

To read about how he felt when he visited the fragile King, go to This Is Leicestershire.


    • Isn’t it though? I think he’s about 55 years old now. But it got me thinking: if someone had told him, say ten years ago, that he was so related to a king, he’d would have laughed at that … now look. Amazing things can happen in life! I love it when I witness these twist and turns.
