Jaime de Salazar (2003) published a pedigree purporting to show the descent of the Prince of the Asturias from Genghis Khan via the mother of Czar Michael Romanov named Xenia Shastukov. His only source was apparently Forst de Battaglia’s Traité de Généalogie (1949) which cited outdated Chinese and Russian sources for the descent. Unfortunately, the pedigree is severely flawed and cannot stand, apart from the fact that any descent traced through Peter III, husband of Catherine the Great, is highly untenable.
