Table of descent from Cerdic to me?

I found this Table of descent from Cerdic to Elizabeth on the Wikipedia : showing “the descent of Elizabeth II from Egbert, traditionally regarded as first King of England, and before that from Cerdic, founder of the House of Wessex“. Apparently, “there are several breaks in the line of descent, but the hereditary succession has never been entirely broken”. Well, I wish I’d known all this when I shared a dormitory with her son at Gordonstoun. I could have used the table to show how I’m also a descendant of Cerdic, but via a branch that heads off in a rather different direction after James IV, King of Scots:
