I would love to find out that Charlemagne was descended from the Merovingian kings, and I’ve spent a lot of time looking for evidence to prove that he was – but I’ve never found any proof. I’d be very very interested to know if there is proof, and what the proof is, and what archives has the records so I could check them out myself.
Charlemagne did have important ancestors, very important, but they weren’t royalty, and they weren’t from the Merovingian dynasty.
