(click icons above names for lists of ancestors)

The lists above taken together compliment the ancestor diagram and provide names and titles along many ancestral routes from Frances Nichols and Cynthia Burrus through Henry I, King of England (see Henry de La Pomerai's diagram) to Charlemagne, Alfred 'the Great', and Rollo 'the Viking' based on generally reliable historical information. Then records move from legends to myths converging on Priam, King of Troy or his father Laomedan. Some myths tie Dardandus, Priam's 3rd great grandfather, through Zerah his father to Adam and Eve through Zerah's father the biblical partriach, or through his mother Electra, one of the seven Pleiades to Greek gods and godesses. The diagram and last (right-most) six lists above are based on the Sinnock, Royals, Vikings, Romans, and Gods database which is based in turn on Frankish, Saxon, and Norse oral myths tieing historical medieval royalty to Troy through Priam's daughters Troan and Creusa and son Hellenus. The  PDF  for Charlemagne, Alfred and Rollo bookmarks key individuals from the last 5 lists above; individual lists are not bookmarked.

NOTE:  Charles 'the Great' or Charlemagne was the first Holy Roman Emperor, coronated Christmas Day 800 (remember the story crowning himself with the Pope present?). Charlemagne is a common ancestor of most European royal families. His ancesrty, on the other hand, is less well known. However, most attempts to trace consanguine lines back to antiquity seem to pass through Charlemagne, but all lines back to antiquity must be accepted with great skeptism. Most lines contain elements of pure fantasy mixed with legend. So I refer to the Wikipedia article 'Descent from Ancestry' to give perspective on ancient and early medieval ancestors listed in the Sinnock, Royals, Vikings, Romans, and Gods database. Even Isaac Newton, perhaps the most famous scientist in history, believed the myths and wrote a treastise connecting English royalty to Trojan myths. But who knows? We are all related anyway.
