My Shakespeare teacher gives us riddles and brain teasers as extra credit worth 2 points, but she NEVER tells us the answers after we turn it in!  This one is really bothering me:

Two grandmothers with their two granddaughters;
two husbands with their two wives;
two fathers with their two daughters;
two mothers with their two sons;
two maidens with their two mothers;
two sisters with their two brothers;
Yet only six in all liked buried here;
all born legitimate, from incest clear.

How are these 6 people related?

I'm going crazy!
