There are so many children of this line it is difficult to include them all. Perhaps the best way to look is to the House Bourbon. Most members of this house are of the line. And then look at the Coat of Arms of the house you are in. Charlemagne's Coat of Arms has variations of the trinity on it, in clovers, elephants, heads, crowns and so on. Also I happen to know that those out of Sir Thomas Chapman, 10 generation from Robert 1 of France are all of this line through the Chapman side. The Rowlett family is also of this line. Also a large portion of the Mont Sartre are also of this lineage. Perhaps the great warriors' greatest accomplishment is that he left generations to remember him.

Hello, I am new to the forum. I became very interested in the Royal lines after researching my family. I found out that my mother and father are actually 15th cousins through the Wallaces of Scotland. After looking at their lines, I found that they are different levels of cousin through many different pathways because of their royal ancestors. My line of the royals ended up poor commoners in the US after fleeing religious persecution and siding with the colonies in the American Revolution. Our line goes directly back to Charlemagne. After finding that information, i googled and found information that almost everyone can claim to be a direct descendant of Charlemagne.

Hello Anna,
I am a new member of the forum and I have recently had DNA tests done to align with my family genealogy. On the results from NatGeo it listed a series of "famous" people that I have DNA matches to. A few are Queen Victoria and Marie Antoinette on my maternal line and King Richard III on both maternal and paternal lines. I have documented family tree data to early 1600s on some ancestors in England and some to mid 1500s. Is there a process to try to find the links from my records to these historical figures ? are there pedigrees from these people to recent times that can be studied ?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Kenny

2. Pepin, King of Italy
3.Bernard of Italy
4. Herbert I of Vermandois

7. Adele of Meaux
8. Ermengarde of Anjou
9. Judith of Brittany
10. Robert I of Normandy
11. William I of England

32. Thomas George Lyon-Bowes
33. Claude Bowes-Lyon
34. Claude George Bowes-Lyon
35. Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, Queen Consort
36. Queen Elizabeth II of England

This is the least royal line. The most royal line is beneath:

2. Pepin, King of Italy
3.Bernard of Italy
4. Herbert I of Vermandois
5. Herbert II of Vermandois
6. Robert of Vermandois

12. Matilda, Empress of Germany
13. Henry II of England
14. John of England
15. Henry III of England
16. Edward I of England
17. Edward II of England
18. Edward III of England
20. Lionel of Antwerp
21. Phillipa Plantagenet
22. Roger Mortimer
23. Anne Mortimer
24. Richard Plantagenet
25. Edward IV of England
26. Elizabeth of York (Henry VII's wife)
27. Margaret Tudor
28. James V of Scotland
29. Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland
30. James VI and I of Scotland and England
31. Elizabeth Stuart, Queen of Bohemia
32. Sophia of Hanover
33. George I of Britain
34. George II of Britain

37. Prince Edward Augustus
38. Queen Victoria of Britain
39. Edward VIII of Britain
40. George V of Britain
41. George VI of Britain
42. Elizabeth II of Britain

the final one is a lineage from her grandmother, Mary of Teck.

1. Charlemagne, Holy Roman Emperor
2. Pepin, King of Italy
3.Bernard of Italy
4. Herbert I of Vermandois
5. Herbert II of Vermandois
6. Robert of Vermandois
7. Adele of Meaux
8. Ermengarde of Anjou
9. Judith of Brittany
10. Robert I of Normandy
11. William I of England
12. Matilda, Empress of Germany
13. Henry II of England
14. Matilda of Saxony
15. Wilhelm of Braunschweig- Luneberg
16. Otto of Braunschweig-Luneberg
17. Adelheid of Braunschweig-Luneberg
18. Otto of the Hesse
19. Ludwig of the Hesse
20. Hermann of the Hesse
21. Heinrich of the Hesse
22. Elizabeth of the Hesse

31. Henrietta of Nassau-Weilburg
32. Alexander of Wurttemberg
33. Franz of Teck
34. Mary of Teck
35. George VI of Britain
36. Elizabeth II of Britain

(Note: Elizabeth II has 3 other lines that would take to long to name so let me tell you them. The first line is from Mary of Teck's mother, a princess of Britain. The other line is the agnatic ancestor of Ernest Augustus, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg, father of George I of Britain. His agnatic ancestor was William of Winchester or William longsword, also an ancestor of Johann Willem Friso. William of Winchester was the grandson of Henry II of England. The third line is from Henry VII of England, the husband of Elizabeth of York, and father of Margaret Tudor. I am extremely sure she has others but this is what I found)

TELL ME IF YOU FIND MORE!!! AND ALSO IS ANNE OF BOHEMIA AND HUNGARY A DESCENDANT OF CHARLEMAGNE?

I always like to throw this link into any discussion about having Charlemagne for an ancestor. I most likely do and so does everyone if they're of European descent. This really is an interesting link for me. Perhaps to find a real anomaly, we'd have to find a royal that's of European descent and *not* related to Charlemagne.

A lot more than half of Europe descends from Charlemagne. It is closer to the reality to say that literally all people living today who are of modern European extraction (inclusive of people of European descent living in the parts of Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Oceania that were colonized by European powers or by the United States) are descended from Charlemagne. Three factors influence this: First, Charlemagne fathered 18 children. Second, 1,205 years have elapsed since Charlemagne died, which, if we aproximate a new generation for every 20 years, means that 60 generations have since been born. Third, the Black Death killed somewhere between 30% and 60% of the population of Europe in the span of four years during the mid-14th Century, which created a major population bottleneck among Europeans that homogenized the European gene pool to a nigh incomprehenisble degree. All of these three factors combined make it essentially impossible for anyone of European extraction today to not be a descendant of Charlemagne; in fact, the latter two factors make it unlikely that anyone of European descent living today is not a descendant of, basically, every person who lived in Europe in the 9th Century and has descendants who are living today.

Whether we have any connection to Charlemange don't know.Certainly wouldn't make me Queen of France even if we were kin. Same goes if by some chance it turned out we we related in some ways to the Wittelsbach who ruled Bavaria or related to the Ducal family of Baden or even the Hapsburgs. Would be interesting ,but absolutely meaningless.
It cannot be said that you wonít be Queen of France, so long as you are a descendant, you are eligible to become a successor in case no one apart from you seeks to succeed

I wouldnít have suggested DNA test because Royals usually dislike that , itís just not suited, since you have a family tree data which is normally the case with us ,what you must and could do is research church records, burial records, land ownership records, school records, court records etc

There is a possibility that people donít have family tree records but are descendants of Royal personalities.

A well known actor in the UK Danny Dyer was the subject of an ancestry programme called who do you think you are. It is a regular series on British tv. He is from the traditionally working class east end of London & found that he was descended from Edward III of England.

He was lucky because the programme discovered a gateway ancestor. Probably most if not all (at least western) European origin peoples are descended from Charlemagne. It's just a matter of finding proof.
