Thinking about it... Mahabharata...
Some of the key personalities were not fathered
by who they are commonly referred to as being fathered by.

Since Vichitravirya had passed away leaving his queens without sons. Satyavati requested her son Veda vyasadeva to conceive sons in the wombs of his half brother's widowed wives.

Dhritarashtra, Pandu and Vidura were actually fathered by Veda vyasadeva, (who was not a kshatriya), the son of Satyavati and Parasara muni and half brother of Vichitravirya.

The Pandava brothers were not actually conceived by Pandu.
Pandu had mistakenly killed a sage thinking him to be an animal
while hunting in the forest. The sage cursed Pandu to die if he ever tried to engage in sexual activitity. The "Pandavas" were conceived on behalf of Pandu by mantra that Kunti had received as a gift from Durvasa muni for her pleasing service.
