"You're now parent to a beautiful baby-it."
Not at all strange seeing as the ancient Egyptians were pretty into this whole incest thing.
Given it's highly unlikely they understood the long term effects of incest, barring aliens actually being real, I think it's safe to forgive them this one.
Egyptian incest spawned Cleopatra VII. Make of that what you will.
Commoners weren't that into incest apparently - they only married their cousins and so on. As for the royal family, some weird study showed that there was no obvious signs of degeneracy even at the end of the 18th dynasty. Strange, considering it went on for fucking millenia.
Cleopatra was a Ptolemaic whore anyway.
You know, incest only bear the chance of exposing illnesses that already are in the family's genes.
It seems they didn't have much deficiencies, or the following generation just did not get the deficient genes in the crossings.
Which lends to their 'divine blood' theory and why they were inbreeding in the first place. Fucking oath.
I'd say a divine amount of goddamned (or blessed?) chance.
Maybe they just had so many children that at least a few in each generation didn't succumb to Billy Bob & Marrie Sue syndrome.
And the fact that they did change dynasty every now and then, meaning some blood came in from somewhere outside.
And yeah, they didn't have Joanna the Mad's descendants fucking each other like the Hapsburgs did.
