How far back in time can you go?

Recommended Posts

On the recent edition of QI, Stephen Fry said he met Marconi's widow and he mentioned that he met Alastair Cooke who knew Bertrand Russell whose aunt danced with Napoleon.

How far can you go back to, if we stick to say you have met someone who met someone who was born in the 17th century?

haha, that reminds me of the song I've danced with a man, who's danced with a girl, who's danced with the Prince of Wales which was used in the opening and closing titles of the drama series Edward and Mrs Simpson.
