Emperor Charlemagne (747-813 AD), my 41st & 42nd great grandfather (maternal).
Charlemagne (German: Karl der Große; Latin: Carolus Magnus or Karolus Magnus, meaning Charles the Great; possibly 742 – 28 January 814) was King of the Franks from 768 and Emperor of the Romans (Imperator Romanorum) from 800 to his death in 814. He expanded the Frankish kingdom into an empire that incorporated much of Western and Central Europe. During his reign, he conquered Italy and was crowned Imperator Augustus by Pope Leo III on 25 December 800. His rule is also associated with the Carolingian Renaissance, a revival of art, religion, and culture through the medium of the Catholic Church. Through his foreign conquests and internal reforms, Charlemagne helped define both Western Europe and the European Middle Ages. He is numbered as Charles I in the regnal lists of Germany, the Holy Roman Empire, and France.
The line is traced from John Throckmorton (b.1601, England; d.1687, Middletown, Monmouth, New Jersey, my 9th great grandfather (maternal), according to the book, "Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists Who Came to America before 1700".
