Hi! Please enlighten me. I have also posted this in property because it also involves a piece of land while it also involves inheritance which (I think) involves the family.

Mr. A owns a titled piece of land and died in 2012. His wife Mrs. B. died in 2015. They did not have any children. The parents of Mr. A are already dead and so are the parents of Mrs. B. A brother of Mr. A is still living. A sister of Mrs. B is also living. The children of the dead sisters and brothers are also living and are of legal age. Who inherits the land and how much % do they inherit?

Is the brother full-blood?

Is the sister full-blood?

Are the nephews and nieces all legitimate children?
