Consanguinity is a noun that means close relationship or connection.

Our word of the day’s first three letters C-O-N is a prefix meaning ‘with’ or ‘together.’  sanguineus (san GWEEN ee oos) on the other hand is the Latin word for ‘blood.’ When combined, they mean ‘from the same blood’ or from a common ancestor.

After years of research, we discovered the consanguinity between the King and his highest ranking general. Keeping power in the family was very common in those days.
