Tracing the family

I guess I"m writting this a bit late, but when I visitied Spain I went to Toledo. There in the Cathedral is burried Cardinal (or something) Petro Mendoza. From what I have understood he was the advisor and cofessor of La Familia Real (royal fam)--which is the reason he is the only Cardinal ever to be burried in a church. Anyhow, from what I was told he got 3 mistresses pregnant, and all three assumed his last name after they got pregnant. One went to Mexico, the other stuck around, but the family eventually ended up in Cuba, and the last went to Argentina. I think you can more or less trace back the family to those 3 points. --MIchelle Mendoza
