    Also called Karolus Magnus; Charles the Great; Karl der Große.

    Tradition says he was born in 742. A few sources say 748.

    Using Ahnentafel numbering, the ten proven ancestors of Charlemagne look like this:

    1. Charlemagne
    2. Pepin the Short, father
    3. Bertrade of Laon, mother
    4. Charles Martel, father's father
    5. Rotrude, father's mother
    6. Caribert of Laon, mother's father
    7. ---
    8. Pepin of Herstal, father's father's father
    9. Alpaida, father's father's mother
    10. ---
    11. ---
    12. ---
    13. Bertrada of Prüm, mother's father's mother
    14. ---
    15. ---
    16. Ansegisel, father's father's father's father
    17. Begga, father's father's father's mother

    The ancestry shown on this tree for Bertrada of Prum (#13), Ansegisel (#16), and St. Begga (#17) is well-informed speculation, mostly from the work of Christian Settipani as reported by English-speaking genealogists. Arnulf (582-640), bishop of Metz, is widely accepted as father of Ansegisel, but beyond that it's pretty much a set of hypotheses put together from circumstantial evidence by very smart people.
