Charts & Family Trees

Who is Related to whom and how?  History doesn't always make this easy.  That's why the Legendary Women of world History biographies often include family tree charts made by Matt Baker of Useful Charts.  These charts help you better understand who each biography subject is by placing her within her familial context.

Each of these charts are free for you to download -- though we hope you'll also buy the books these appear in.
