Root also changed his identity to save his noble family the shame of a son on the stage. Root wore makeup when he was "discovered" in the very place that Angier's people began their search. Now you know the rest of the story.
Root was likely the younger brother and therefore received little to no inheritance, and no title, making him jealous of Robert, hence the hostility at their meeting. Didn't you get the feeling that they knew each other?
Angier is an anagram of Regina, meaning queen. They may have been bastard sons of a royal prince.
Oh god, ive never laughed so hard in my life.
