European nobility interbred a lot, so it’s likely that you are both from both French and English nobility (as well as German, Russian, Spanish, and so on). Most of us of European descent can count at least some nobility in our lines, because if you go back far enough we’re all related. When I first started going genealogical research, I was excited to find out that my family line can be traced back to Henry II of England and then all the way back to Charlemagne. A few years later I found out that George Washington could also trace his family through the selfsame lineage, and every president ever including Barack Obama are [distantly related](http://www.geni.com/blog/look-whos-related-george-washington-and-all-the-presidents-325451.html). Point being, everyone who has European ancestry are distantly related and descended from nobility (as well as thousands of other Europeans) we just know about the connection to kings and noblemen because they were famous enough to have their genealogies mapped. We’re also all related to some poor sap who cleaned Henry II’s chamber pot, had 10 kids and died unlamented, but he wasn’t a king, so we’ll never know who he was.
