When font-size is in percentage, what is the parent element that it is related to?

I think in this example (and in probably most cases) the parent is the <body> element, which has a default font-size 16px. So, a font-size of 200% would be 32px... etc.
But if you have a <p> inside a <h1> (for example) where you've declared the font-size of the <h1> as 32px and then declared the <p> as being a font-size of 150%... the font-size would be 48px. So, it kind of depends of whether or not the child has a parent with a defined font-size.
It's all relative, but remember that the default font-size of the browser is 16px.
