The royal blood of Queen Elizabeth II has several DNA links with many of the nobility in the world. One of these alleged connections is from the blood of a noble Arabian King's wife who was said to be a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad.
A study came out in 2008 from the world's most well-known genealogical publisher, Burke’s Peerage showing the Queen's connection to Muhammad.
After the study was released, it has been said that Queen Elizabeth allegedly descends from the fourth wife of King Al-Mu'tamid ibn Abbad of Seville named Zaida, who was an Islamic princess who converted to Roman Catholicism, had as an ancestor who was "a king of Seville considered a direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammed".
Here is a snippet from the press release dated October 10, 1986 in the United Press International:
MOSLEMS IN BUCKINGHAM PALACE
"Mixed in with Queen Elizabeth’s blue blood is the blood of the Moslem prophet Mohammed, according to Burke’s Peerage, the geneological guide to royalty. The relation came out when Harold B. Brooks-Baker, publishing director of Burke’s, wrote Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to ask for better security for the royal family. ”The royal family’s direct descent from the prophet Mohammed cannot be relied upon to protect the royal family forever from Moslem terrorists,” he said.
Probably realizing the connection would be a surprise to many, he added, ”It is little known by the British people that the blood of Mohammed flows in the veins of the queen. However, all Moslem religious leaders are proud of this fact.”
Brooks-Baker said the British royal family is descended from Mohammed through the Arab kings of Seville, who once ruled Spain. By marriage, their blood passed to the European kings of Portugal and Castille, and through them to England’s 15th century King Edward IV."
Gnostic Warrior Conclusion
This news was fascinating to me given the fact that you never really hear about the connection between the British royal family, and the Arab Muslim world. Actually it is no surprise to me given the fact that my study into my own DNA has shown me that I'm related to people like Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolph Hitler.
Let me also add that I have many, many cousins who are from Arab countries and are Muslim. I have blonde hair and blue eyes and many of my cousins have brown hair and brown eyes.
The facts are many of us living today are of "mixed" Egyptian, Phoenician, Persian, Greek, and Arab descent that can be traced to many of the Christian European Crusaders who became the Kings of Jerusalem (rulers of the world).
A connection from Muhammad, entering the British line through Infanta Isabella of Castile (shown in the first chart), has been endorsed by Burke's Peerage The connection hinges on Zaida of Seville, who, for this connection to be true, needs to be daughter, wife and mother, respectively, of King Al-Mu'tamid ibn Abbad of Seville, King Alfonso VI of León and Castile and Sancha Alfónsez (wife of Rodrigo González de Lara). This line goes through Maria of Portugal (shown under Byzantine connection above).
Other lines of descent from Muhammad go through María de Padilla (shown under Byzantine connection above), Isabella of Barcelos (shown under Ancestry of Diana Spencer and Catherine Middleton above) and the wife of Anselm Franz, 2nd Prince of Thurn and Taxis (father-in-law of Charles Alexander, Duke of Württemberg, patrilineal ancestor of Mary of Teck).
