Some time ago, it was brought up that genealogists have determined that every single president of the United States has been descended from some medieval king of England or Scotland. Has this actually been true of John F. Kennedy as well? The reason for my asking is that his ancestry was (almost) exclusively Irish. This would make it highly improbable that he had English or Scottish ancestry -- granted that members of royal families are often foreigners.
The fact is that the foreigners sitting on the throne of England have typically had ancestors from the continent, while those sitting on the throne of Scotland have come from England or the continent.
