Thanks subby - interesting to hear Da Vinci has over a dozen traced male relatives currently alive.

Actually, Leonardo's name was just Leonardo. He didn't have a last name.

He was just called "Da Vinci" (english: The Vince)  because he was a big fan of Vince Neil and would rock out to Motley Crue while working on his paintings

I always find those numbers so shocking. Generally, you'd assume either a dead end on the line or a really, really big number of descendants. My recently deceased grandmother is well past 200 great, great grandchildren. Unless most of those lines die off without heirs, she should have thousands and thousands of descendants in another few generations

You misheard. It was Vince McMahon. He was a huge wrestling fan. He was all about the squared circle. And muscular men apparently.

/not that there's anything wrong with that.
