About Katherine Montfort

The second fortification of the royal bloodline occurs when Sir George Booth of Dunham Massey marries Lady Catherine De Montfort . Lady Catherine is also what is called a Major Gateway Ancestor as her pedigree is a bit like Grand Central Station, as it leads to most of the main ancestral lines of european nobility and royalty and a fascinating path to ancient history.

She has a very distinguished pedigree and is descended from the Plantagenet Kings of England, the Dukes of Normandy, including William the Conqueror, the Counts of Flanders, Capetian and Carolingian Kings and Queens, Scottish Kings and to practically every major nobleman and noblewoman in Europe all the way back to King Charlemagne and even Alfred the Great.

Their son Sir William Booth now has a Bilateral Royal bloodline, and carried an absolutely amazing pedigree.http://boothancestry.wordpress.com/royal-descent/
