Trivial Fact of the Day

TV historian Dan Snow is the great great grandson of David Lloyd George.

There is an obvious burning question about his great grandfather's parentage.

Not sure if it is still a legitimate question these days?

Still, can you enlighten us?

Relax. His great grandmother was Lloyd George's daughter Olwen.

She did not die until 1990. I remember hearing her interviewed: "I always give the old boy a 'thank you' when I go to collect my pension."
