No, no; not the royal house.

A lady I met with no knowledge of these matters is descended from the noble
family yclept "Aragon", the one, I imagine, to which Queen Fabiola of the
Belgians is related.

I wonder if anyone can tell me:

(1) Where I could find (in book or on line) an account/ahnentafel of this

(2) How far back they go, and what were their original titles;

and (3) Were they ever connected to the House of Barcelona/Trastamara, the
last Kings of Aragon as distinct from Kings of Spain?

Many thanks,

Jean Coeur de Lapin
