Highly toxic mercury was used as a treatment for syphilis but was more often a kill than a cure and scientists say it was this that preserved her body.
A syphilitic mummified corpse dating back to the 18th century has been identified as Anna Catharina Bischoff, the great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother of the foreign secretary.
Although the woman was laid in a 16th century coffin, there was no gravestone marking her name, making her identification hard.
Last year, they discovered that the body had been discovered previously, in 1843.
Scientists in Basel identified the woman and revealed her to to be the great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother of UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
It may not have worked, but the mercury did help to preserve her body until now.
DNA extracted from the mummy's big toe gave an nearly certain probability she was Anna Catharina Bischoff of Basel born 1719, and died 1787.
Those records led historians to suspect she was a member of the well-heeled Bischoff clan.
Researchers then set out to discover the genealogical tree of the woman.
