I get what you're saying, I think. That some branches of the family tree have had higher priority than others, right? For instance if Charlemagne had two sons, he would only let one of his sons family be 'in on it' so to speak? The others sons offspring would dwindle off into genetic oblivion and become peasants like you and me .

Is that what you mean?
