      From Wikipedia:

      "Theodoric I (c. 916 – c. 976), German Dietrich I, also known as Thierry I of Liesgau, is considered the oldest traceable member of the House of Wettin. In genealogy this makes him the progenitor of the dukes, electors and kings of Saxony, the grand dukes of Saxony-Weimar and Eisenach and the dukes of the various Saxon duchies of Thuringia and also of various present-day monarchs, including Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, King Philippe of Belgium, the last king Simeon II of Bulgaria, as well as the last king of Portugal, Manuel II.

      "Almost nothing is known about Theodoric's life; not even the year of his death is clear. It is believed that he was killed in battle with the Hungarians in 976."
