The House of Windsor came into being in 1917, when the name was adopted as the British Royal Family’s official name by a proclamation of King George V, replacing the historic name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. It remains the family name of the current Royal Family.
The present Queen has familial ties with most of the monarchs in Europe.
During the twentieth century, kings and queens of the United Kingdom have fulfilled the varied duties of constitutional monarchy. One of their most important roles has been acting as national figureheads lifting public morale during the devastating wars of 1914-18 and 1939-45.
The period saw the modernisation of the monarchy in tandem with many social changes which have taken place over the past 90 years. One such modernisation has been the use of mass communication technologies to make the Royal Family accessible to a broader public all over the world.
George V adopted the new medium of radio to broadcast across the Empire at Christmas; the Coronation ceremony was broadcast on television for the first time in 1953, at The Queen’s insistence; and the World Wide Web has been used for the past seven years to provide a global audience with information about the Royal Family.
During this period, British monarchs have also played a vital part in promoting international relations. The late Queen retained close links with former colonies in her role as Head of the Commonwealth.

Headed by King Charles, the English monarchy is one of the oldest in the world. According to the royal family’s official site, its roots can be traced back to the time when William the Conqueror was declared King of England in 1066 and can be traced even still when the Romans invaded Britain in 43 AD.

But there are those who believe that Queen Elizabeth’s roots can be traced even further than that. It is believed that the royal family’s roots can be traced back to the royal family of Israel and that Her Majesty is actually a descendant of King David, the Psalmist.
The idea that Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family might be descendants of Israel’s King David was first introduced by Rev. F. R A. Glover, M.A. In his book titled “England, The Remnant Of Judah, And The Israel Of Ephraim,” which was first published in London in 1861, Glover was able to link King Heremon of Ireland’s heritage (580 BC) to the Israelite tribe of Dan.

A few years later, author Mr. J. C. Stephens made the compilation “Genealogical Chart, Shewing The Connection Between The House of David And The Royal Family Of Britain.” It was published in Liverpool in 1877 and was able to link biblical patriarch Abraham’s lineage all the way to the British Queen Victoria.

For those who are interested in how the current royal family is reportedly linked to King David and Adam (the biblical first man), here is the complete genealogy. However, readers better take this list with a grain of salt as even the royal family does not seem to officially acknowledge the list:
