I have a very weak Jacobite claim to the throne of England. I am a direct descendant of Alan Fitz Flaad who was the progenitor of the Stuart dynasty. I am also a descendant of the King Edward the Longshanks and the Plantagenets.
My ancestor Ifor Hael (one of the real Lords of Tredegar) was a great patron of the arts and hired Dafyyd ap Gwilym, one of the great Welsh poets, to be in his court and write propaganda songs and poems in his honor. Dafyyd ap Gwilym is known for writing poems such as "Trouble at a Tavern" and "A Poem in Praise of the Penis".
A strange part of me feels like being a furry honors Ifor Haels legacy for some reason.
