Edward II had some very interesting descendants, not all of whom were known for having royal connections! king Here are some examples:

Former US President Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was Edward II's great x 13 grandson through Edward III, John of Gaunt, the Nevilles and the Tanfields.

Novelist Jane Austen (1775-1817) was Edward II's great x 14 granddaughter, through Edward III, John of Gaunt, the Greys, and the Brydges.

Josephine Tascher de la Pagerie (1763-1814), Napoleon's first wife and great love, was Edward II's great x 14 granddaughter, through Edward III, John of Gaunt, the Nevilles and the Brownes.

Former US President Richard Nixon (1913-1994) was Edward II's great x 19 grandson, through Edward III, John of Gaunt, the Beauforts, the Carys and the Knollys.

Former US President Herbert Hoover (1874-1964) was Edward II's great x 19 grandson through Edward III, John of Gaunt, the Greys and the Dudleys.
