Royal Constellations by Nadieh Bremer
Royal & aristocratic families are known for their fondness of marrying within their own clique. This leads to very interesting & entangled family trees which the Royal Constellations visual tries to convey. Dive into the web of family relations to see how all 10 of the current hereditary royal leaders of Europe can be connected to each other through their ancestors.
By hovering and clicking on one of the 3000 “stars”, each of which represent a person, the web reveals aspects such as “6-degrees of separation” and shortest paths between two royals.
Even if this family tree is only a small segment of (famous) past royals, this peek into the history of Europe's royals shows that it's all one big (happy?) family.
