From Theodoros Dukas Lascaris it is possible to trace back to several Byzantine imperial families and the royal and princely families of Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Jerusalem, Antioch, Kiev, England, Poland, Sweden, etc.  If you want to learn more about these ancestors, then we suggest you consult Brook (1981), Schwennicke (1978-), and Sturdza (1983).
