karel_de_groteA lot of people who are are interested in their family’s genealogy think it’s really cool to prove a bloodline to a famous person. Like Charlemagne. Not that that’s so special…. It has been estimated that about 85 % of all Dutch who’s ancestors also came from the Netherlands, can somehow trace a bloodline to this historical figure. Ronald en Blue can also claim to be related to this great European Emperor On different ways even. Here you find a number of lists of names. The lists begin with the names of either Ronald’s or Blue’s great grandparent and ends with Charlemagne.

Handtekening van Karel de Grote

If you enjoyed this bit then you really need to click on the picture of Charlemagne’s autograph. It will take you to a page where you can find out how the line of Charlemagne continues. It serves no purpose but giving entertainment. I think the outcome is hilarious. But the fun part is all the way at the bottom of the list
