This article from the Atlantic shows mathematically how everyone of Western European descent is related to Charlemagne. More interesting, though, is that we all share a common ancestor no earlier than a couple thousand years ago.

Keep that in mind next time you're rude to the waitress... she's probably Richard the Lionheart's direct descendant, and she's probably your cousin--and not so distant a cousin as you thought.
