Sooner or later, and with a little luck, the genealogist finds a member of a prominent family.

The greatest sensation was to be a descendant of a historical prominent person. This was indeed a very surprising discovery, because the dynasties of historical persons have already been explored a lot, and all persons being involved have been informed.

The second greatest surprise would be to belong to a prominent family, in other words, one would share ancestors with a historical prominent person. But, as already said above, in most cases one would already know.

There is another interesting situation left, if both cases above don't apply: sharing a few relatives with a prominent person. One would not be related to this person, but have a few relatives, who are also relatives of this person.

We made a discovery of this third category, you can see below, whom it is about. We don't pride ourselves on it, but we find it worthwhile, to mention our discovery here.
