Keep it in the family

National Geographic has an interesting article about why royal families all over the world would marry their close relatives.

Worth a read, if only for the following line:
Bingham learned that even after King Kamehameha III of Hawaii accepted Christian rule, he slept for several years with his sister, Princess Nahi'ena'ena—pleasing their elders but disturbing the missionaries.
