The people that shaped our country married their cousins.

May 8, 2009

I found this funny list that compiles historical figures that have married their cousins. The only explanation is that they have to be Irish.

  1. Rudy Giuliani
  2. Jerry Lee Lewis
  3. Edgar Allen Poe — he doubles in the creepiness factor of this, because he fell in love in love with his cousin when she was 7 and he was 20. Incest. Check. Pedaphile. Check.
  4. Charles Darwin
  5. Albert Einstein
  6. Thomas Jefferson
  7. H.G. Wells
  8. Johann Sebastian Bach
  9. Franklin D. Roosevelt
  10. Jesse James
