Villas-Boas arriving at Chelsea with Royal Family behind him!

Royalty is arriving to take charge of Chelsea.

Recently incoming Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas said London was a city he felt he 'could live in perfectly' and, judging by some of the reports emerging from Portugal yesterday, he might fancy a wing of Buckingham Palace.

Portugal's King Carlos I made Jose Gerardo de Villas Boas the first Viscount of Guilhomil in 1890. Andre's great-uncle Jose Rui inherited the title when his father, a local political leader and judge, died just before the start of the First World War.

It became extinct only because the sole child from Jose Rui's marriage was a girl.

Andre is also said to be related to a count and two barons.
