[[Jacquetta de Luxembourg]] by her marriage to Sir Richard Wydevill, 1st Earl Rivers became the ancestress of thousands of living descendents in England, America, Australia and New Zealand.  Jacquetta however has two further distinctions: firstly, by this marriage she forms one of the most useful gateways for those descendents into the European medieval royalty.

Her second mark of distinction has since been questioned.  It is that her known ancestress, the wife of Ioannes Dukas Komnenos is called "Taronitissa" that is "woman from Taron".  In his work "Descents from Antiquity", Sir Rodney Hartwell, linked this woman as a great-granddaughter of [[Michael Taronites]] by his wife Maria Komnena.  Leo van de Pas' picked up this linkage in his online project "Genealogics" and it's since been repeated in various other places.  However this linkage is suspect or challenged as lacking in evidence.  If it were correct, it would give a descent from the Armenian, Principality of Taron. Looking at the ascent from Michael [http://fabpedigree.com/s026/f211213.htm here] you can see why making this connection could be very interesting.
