More Infidelity Uncovered in King Richard III's Family Tree

The remains of Richard III may be locked away in a coffin to be reburied this week, but the 15th-century king's genome is still offering scientists a chance to unravel royal mysteries. After scientists uncovered evidence of infidelity in Richard's family tree last year, they announced Wednesday that they have discovered more hints of daddy drama in the historical family. Turi King, a geneticist at the University of Leicester, said, "Having worked in the world of genetic genealogy for years, this is not at all surprising to me." King added in the general population, false paternities occur in about 1 percent to 2 percent of births.
