When I was growing up, my father insisted we have lunch together on Sundays. We all sat around a huge dining room table. The meal began at around 2:30 and we pushed back our chairs and hugged each other goodbye close to 6:00 p.m. Lunch on Sundays was often a drag – we all had places to be and other people we wanted to spend time with. We argued a lot. My father insisted on “elevating the Stork cake T-deb on the bayou Christmas shirt, sweater in contrast I will get this conversation” which meant we were not allowed to gossip or say petty things about the people we had in common. Also, he did not allow side conversations – where one of us whispered to the person sitting next to us. It all had to be a single exchange, where everyone was listening, engaged and participating.

The hours spent in that dining room were the only time I got to know this assortment of characters I call “family”.

And so on and so forth, though not necessarily in a straight line. William’s direct descendants used their power and cunning to maintain that line. Sometimes, though, the cunning was missing, and luck came into it. There were uprisings and rebellions by non-family members and more than once, serendipity stepped in. Take King John, for example. John, William’s great-great-grandson was a horrible king. Even after being forced into Magna Carta, he managed to push all the wrong buttons. What saved his and his descendant’s claim on the throne? He got sick and died. The Barons basically went, “oh, well, that’s over. Let’s crown little Henry.” (not the vacuum cleaner)
