Who are some of the most common (lowliest in social standing) of Queen Elizabeth II’s 64 great-great-great-great grandparents?

Based on genealogy whereby a person has 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great-grandparents, 16 great-great grandparents, 32 great-great-great grandparents, 64 great-great-great-great grandparents, and so on...with each generation doubling in the number of ancestors, who are some of the lowliest in social standing of the current Queen’s 64 4x-great-grandparents? Were any of them relatively poor and working class? Any of them middle class?

    Many were poor, but none of them were working class.

    The Queen does not actually have 64 different ancestors of that generation. Edward VII was both a patrilineal as well as matrilineal great-grandson of Francis, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld and his second wife.

    By the same token some of her 4x great grandparents are also her 3x great grandparents in the case of George III and Queen Charlotte, since they were ancestors of both Queen Victoria and of Prince Albert who were both first cousins and third cousins once removed.

    Probably the concubine Queen Charlotte was descended from.

    Two of her great x4 grandparents are King George III and his wife Queen Charlotte. There were so many first-cousins marrying and reproducing in the Queen’s line of ancestors that she does not have 64 of that generation.
