Gracias. This source seems to coincide with the sources that I have found. Maybe it is true and descendants of the Queen of Jerusalem ended up in Texas. Crazy, but also interesting and extraordinary..

Hello, I also have family in San Antonio from when it was part of New Spain. Some of them were somehow relevant for the history of Texas.This same branch is supposed to be related to the Queen of Jerusalem back in the times of the crusades. I have found references to this relation in many sources. However they are not official sources, only sources uploaded by regular users of platforms such as Family Search, Geni or MyHeritage. Therefore, I don’t know whether someone made up this relation or made a mistake which was repeated by many after. Part of the validity of the relation lies in the translation of the Spanish last name Flores to the French Flory. I don’t know if this is an arbitrary supposition or something with solid foundations. Does anyone else in this group know about this? Please see attached the genealogic relationship that I am talking about from my Texan ancestors to the Queen.
I would very much appreciate it if you please share your thoughts about this.
