Fun Fact: What Fitzroy Means

Fun facts about English royalty

In many noble families all across the world, many illegitimate “bastard” children would be born either before a man’s first marriage or during one of his marriages. While these children would very rarely ever inherit their father’s titles or lands, they were often cared for. Many illegitimate children of English/British kings used the surname Fitzroy which is based on the French words “fils du roi” which means “son of the king”.
