Can you explain a great-great-great grandmother twice removed? Is that her great great great grandmother? Why do you say twice removed? Just curious.

I didn't actually write removed, I wrote over, but in any case I was incorrect - I had really meant to write that both Marie Antoinette and her husband were descended from Anne of Austria, not that Marie Antoinette was descended doubly from Anne of Austria.  Writing too quickly!
