Aragorn, son of Alabama
That 51 times removed thing is kind of important though.
So Aragorn is as closely related to Arwen as I am to Bill Murray?
First cousins X times removed are not the same as second cousins.
Edit: the OP is not actually implying that they are the same, I was confused not realizing the OP was incorrectly calling Aragorn and Elrond cousins.
Your mom too is cousin of your dad 40 times removed
Ouch. Watch out you’d get dirty looks in the south for those jokes
Were Elrond & Elros identical twins? If so then (genetically) Aragorn is a bit more closely related to his (50x great) uncle.
I think it is 50x great uncle, because “uncle” takes care of one generation removed. Right?
Edit: added P.S.
P.S. some of the genetic databases have pointed out that the children of identical twins will trace more closely to half siblings than 1st cousins.
“Nth” cousin refers to how many generations ago you had a common ancestor
“removed” refers to how many generations away you are from that cousin
Edit: fixed mistakes
