Below is a "route" or path from Sir Roger Kirkpatrick to Charlemagne the Holy Roman Emperor (747 – 28 January 814) and on back to Flavius Afranius Syagrius, a Gallo-Roman Senator. He became proconsul of Africa in 379, praefectus Urbis Romae in 381, praefectus praetorio Italiae in 382 and was consul with Flavius Claudius Antonius in 382. He is the ancestor of any of the royal houses of Europe.

Each and every Wikipedia page using as verification has been linked to the person's name, so there should be NO challenges on thise connections. The "youngest," or most recent of the ancestors were provided by Mr. William Supernaw Ford.
