The three claimants to the English throne, 1066. I just love family trees; they make it so much easier to keep straight who's who, and how everybody is related. Harald Hardrada, who isn't on this tree, was apparently descended from the Viking kings who had ruled England for a time earlier (but I'm very shaky on what exactly his connection was). So I guess he thought he had a legitimate claim, too.

AFRICAN KINGS by International Photographer James C. Lewis | Thutmose III (1481 BC - 1425 BC) was the sixth Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty. Thutmose III ruled Egypt for almost fifty-four years, and his reign is usually dated from April 24, 1479 BC to March 11, 1425 BC; however, this includes the twenty-two years he was co-regent to Hatshepsut. During the final two years of his reign, he appointed his son and successor, Amenhotep II, as his junior co-regent. | Model: Eric Graham
