Is Queen Elizabeth II a descendant of Muhammad?

Genealogy

A question that has come up several times on my YouTube channel is:

"Is Queen Elizabeth II a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad?"

Well, here's a chart outlining a theory that has been circulating over the last few years:

The theory hinges on Zaida of Seville (c. 1070-1100). If she was indeed the daughter of Al-Mu'tamid (ruler of the Taifa of Seville in what is today Spain), then we likely have a clear way of showing how Queen Elizabeth is related to the Prophet. But if she was instead a daughter-in-law (i.e. married to one of Al-Mu'tamid's sons before her relationship with Alfonso VI), then this particularly theory basically falls apart.

Watch the explanation here:
