The Duke of Connaught Is of the  twenty-eighth generation which ia  descended from' William the Con-,  queror, who became King of England  in,1066. Taking the average life of a  generation as thirty years, and mul-.  tiplying that number by twenty-eight,  yields 840, which if added to 1066  makes the year 1906, which Is near  enough  for f all   practical  purposes.  Being of royal lineage the new  governor-general is a prince; but by  a.. c__"Jou_ f ictioii, In England thetitte  of Duke is cons'iuerec on-*-- cr superior  rank; and a prince shortly after attaining his majority is usually created  a Duke. Thus, Prince Alfred was  created Duke of Edinburgh , and  Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught.
