A lineage I wouldn’t be proud of whatsoever…
Is the Queen related to Prophet Muhammad? Historians believe Elizabeth II is a descendant of the founder of Islam after tracing her family tree back 43 generations
- Queen Elizabeth’s lineage can be traced back 43 generations to the founder of Islam, according to historians
- Claim first surfaced in 1986 after Burke’s Peerage, a British authority of royal pedigrees, discovered the link
- Although disputed by some historians, genealogical records of early medieval Spain also support the claim
Historians believe the Queen is a descendant to the founder of Islam – after tracing her family tree back 43 generations.
The claim makes the British monarch a distant ancestor of the Prophet Muhammad.
The findings were first published in 1986 by Burke’s Peerage, a British authority on royal pedigrees.
But the claim has recently resurfaced after a Moroccan newspaper said it had traced the queen’s lineage back to the Prophet.
