copied the above line of descent from another source, but because other
things in that source are bad info I don't want link to it. But this
line of decent I have studied generation by generation and it's valid,
though a few mistakes might have been made in exactly how it was expressed. At a certain point it overlaps with my Genealogy of Commanege, Julia the wife of Gaius Julius Quadratus was the daughter of Gaius Julius Alexander and Iotapa daughter of Anitochus IV of Commagene. From them came the Historian of 200 AD.
of Metz's son Ansegisel married Saint Begga, the daughter of Pepin of
Landen. They had Pepin of Herstal the father of Charles Martel, the
father of Pepin the Short, the father of Charlemagne.
and Begga also had a daughter Clotilda of Heristal who was married to
the Merovingian king Theoderic III of of Neustria and Austrasia.
Bertrada of Prum was very likely their daughter, she was the mother of
Caribert of Laon. His daughter daughter Bertrada of Laon was the wife of
Pepin the Short mentioned above and mother of Charlemagne.
note on the above line of descent. Munderic claimed to be a son of
Chlodoric the Parricide, who's called that because he murdered his own
father, Sigobert the Lame, in order to take his kingdom. Chlodoric acted
upon the instigation of Clovis I a rival king of the Salian Franks.
After Sigobert's death Clovis then accused Chlodoric of the murder and
had him killed in his turn for the crime. In this way Clovis became king
of Sigobert's and Chlodoric's people. Sigobert the lame could be a
descendant of Merovee by a line independent of Clovis I.
It is well known that pretty much all modern European Royalty can claim descent from Charlemagne. And other prominent families too. It's been claimed in Conspiracy theory circles that almost all Presidents of The United States are descendants of Charlemagne. I'm not sure how verifiable that claim is.
Charlemagne also as can be shown above had Merovingian ancestry. So that can tie into theories about how DaVinci Code type claims might be used. But other means exist to try and give this same European Royalty Davidic Ancestry.
The theories being drawn on here have been discredited by many skeptics.
But it's interesting, between that and the Armenian/Georgian royalty. We have a lot of people with Seleucid descent with dubious claims to Davidic descent.
