Jacquetta de Luxembourg by her marriage to Sir Richard Wydevill, 1st Earl Rivers became the ancestress of thousands of living descendents in England, America, Australia and New Zealand. Jacquetta however has two further distinctions: by this marriage she forms one of the most useful gateways for those descendents into the European medieval royalty, and also even further back to the Byzantine Emperors, connecting through Michael Taronites to the Armenian Principality of Taron. Looking at the ascent from Michael here you can see why making this connection could be very interesting.
