Our common ancestors - Arab house of Islam - Contents


The Arab house of Islam

The Prophet Muhammad has an extensive genealogy. How reliable it all is I do not know. But there has long been interest in connecting western Christian lines to it.

There is not yet any proven descent from the Prophet Muhammad to medieval European Christian lines. If any descent is established, it will probably be through medieval Spain and Portugal.






Attempted descent (not generally accepted):

The following attempted genealogy is seen in a number of places, and would imply a descent of most of the West from the Prophet Muhammad. However it is not generally accepted by genealogists. Alfonso VI did have a Muslim mistress/wife Zaida, but it is not proven she was the mother of Rodrigo Gonzalez de Lara's wife. Also Zaida was said by some to daughter of the Emir, but more usually said to be his daughter-in-law, thus wiping out the whole line above her. For discussion see:
