The Descent of Hughes
Page 5 - Edward I to Pepin of Landen

  |  
Edward I (Hammer of the Scots) (1239-1307) = Eleanor of Castile (daughter of Ferdinand III, King of Castile and Leon, and Joan, daughter of Simon of Danmartin, Count of Ponthieu and Aumale)
  |  
Henry III (1207-1272) = Eleanor of Provence (daughter of Raymond Berenger, Count of Provence and Beatrice, daughter of Thomas I, Count of Savoy)
  |  
John l (Lackland) (1166-1216) = Isabella of Angoulême (daughter of Aymer Taillefer, Count of Angoulême and Alice, daughter of Peter de Courtenay, son of Louis VI, King of France)
  |  
Henry II (1133-1189) = Eleanor of Aquitaine (daughter of William X, 'the Toulousan', Duke of Aquitaine, and Eleanor, daughter of Aimery de Rochefoucauld, Viscount of Châtellérhault)

*The Dukes of Aquitaine were (reputedly) descended from Guilhelm de Gellone, Count of Toulouse and founder of Saint Guilhelm-le-Désert.

  |  
Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou & Maine (1113-1151)

*The Counts of Anjou were reputed to be descended from a witch called Melusine, who disappeared in a puff of smoke when ordered to attend Mass by her husband. 'From the Devil we have come and to the Devil we shall go' was a favourite saying of the Plantagenets, apparently.

= Matilda, Empress of Germany (daughter of Henry I Beauclerc, King of England)
  |  
Henry I (1068-1135) = Matilda of Scotland (daughter of Malcolm III, King of Scotland, and St. Margaret, daughter of Edward the Exile)

*Descended from Kenneth MacAlpin, first King of Scotland, and, on her mother's side from the Saxon royal house. Matilda's marriage to Henry I united the Saxon and Norman royal lines.

*Kenneth MacAlpin was King of Dalriada and gained the crown of Scotland by conquest. He traced his descent from Fergus Mor mac Erc, King of Dalriada, who lived about 500 A. D.

William I (The Conqueror) (1028-1087) = Matilda of Flanders (daughter of Baldwin V, Count of Flanders)

  |  
Baldwin II, Count of Flanders (863-918) = Elfride (daughter of Alfred the Great, King of England)

Descent of Alfred the Great from King Arthur. See 'The Discovery of King Arthur' by Geoffery Ashe (2003) for the strong case for the identification of Arthur as the historical figure Riothamus (which probably translates as 'High King') and for his identification as the probable father of Cerdic.

  |  
Pepin II, Duke of Austrasie (d. 714) = Elphide (daughter of Guerin, Count of Paris)
  |  
Ansegis (d. 629) (Son of St. Arnulf, Bishop of Metz)

* St. Arnulf was the great-great-great-grandson of Clovis (About 496-511), King of the Franks, and he was therefore of Merovingian descent. Clovis was the grandson of Mérovée, who gave his name to the Merovingian dynasty.

*There is, apparently, some doubt concerning St. Arnulf's Merovingian descent.

= Begga (daughter of Pepin I of Landen)
  |  
Pepin I of Landen (d. 639), Mayor of the Palace (Austrasie)

Pepin's ancestry is uncertain but some sources say that the Arnulfing [i.e. descendants of St. Arnulf] were descended from Roman senatorial families.

= Itta, Abbess of Nivelles (Brabant)
