:I don't get why you think "brother's ancestor" would be correct. ''We don't know that Lysandre has a brother in the first place'', and even if he does, AZ is ''not'' his or his brother's ancestor (Lysandre and his theoretical brother aren't directly descended from AZ). Based on the line "I'm a descendant of the king's [AZ's] younger brother." it's clear that AZ is '''Lysandre's ancestor's brother'''.--'''[[User:Dennou Zenshi|<font color="#AB0909">電</font><font color="#063A73">禅</font>]]<small>[[User talk:Dennou Zenshi|<font color="#fff" face="Tahoma"><span style="text-shadow:#000 0.2em 0.1em 0.1em; class=texhtml">Den Zen</span></font>]]</small>''' 20:17, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
::Also, the very phrase "brother's ancestor" is illogical because brothers always have common ancestors, since they're descended from the same parents (unless we're talking about half-brothers or step-brothers, but in this case it'd be an over-interpretation). --[[User:Maxim|Maxim]] ([[User talk:Maxim|talk]]) 20:28, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
:::RandomRowlet, I suspect you may be mixing up the meanings of ancestor and descendant. "Descendant" and "descendant's brother" are the same thing, but "ancestor" and "ancestor's brother" are different. I think you are mistaking the latter pair for the former.
