    Question structure of the sentence

    This makes sense given that "obeisance" can be traced back to the Anglo-French verb "obeir," which means "to obey" and is also an ancestor of our word "obey."

    anyone can analyse the structure of this sentence for me? especially this part "this makes sense given that.....". many many thanks.
