Early Ancestors
 

The earliest of our traceable possible ancestors in the "Direct Male Line" are Nobles of The Frankish Empire. In one of the early female lines ("The Norse Ancestors"), our ancestors originated in the tribes from the north that invaded The Frankish Empire. In particular, the Norse ( to become the Normans) that invaded from the sea. Another early female line ("The Moselle Line") originates with Tonantius Ferreolus of Rome, (b~410--d?), Praetorian Prefect of Gaul.

Many genealogists claim that the supposed early Kings of the Franks (Marcomer, Pharamond etc) were mythical because the Franks claimed that they were related to a sea monster. However, there is some evidence from Roman Records that they were actual leaders of various tribes that later became the Franks. Tracing the line of descent through such leaders has proved impracticable. Thus the earliest of the direct male line, that I can trace without confusion is Flavius Richomeres (Richomer) b ~340, a Frankish "General" who came to prominence as the Comes domesticorum, of Emperors Gratian & Valentinian II . His descendant [via the Counts of Hesbaye (Haspengau), a Count of Thurgau, Counts of Fezensac and the Vicomtes de Thouars] was Hugh Aimerie Thouars , later ordained Bishop of Coutances (Constantiensis) from (989-1025). He was a possible great grandfather of the 1st Earl Wiliam de Warenne from whom descend the following families de Warennes, Poynton Warrens, Cambridgeshire/ Hertfordshire Warren Wallers, finally, the Irish (Tipperary) Wallers. The individual pages give some alternative descents. However, that shown in red seems the most probable. I have also inserted another long traceable line assuming descent via the Plantagenets (though I think this less probable).The "Norse Line" runs from Halfdan Frodasson (~524 -- ~580 ), the first after the semi legendary descendants of Skjold, King of The Danes, that I can date with any accuracy, down to Beatrice de Vascoeuil b ~1004 who married Rodolf (Ralph) I de Warenne a putative grandfather of the 1st Earl de Warenne. I have also shown genealogies for some of the more interesting families to which we are connected.

"The Capet Connection " ascends from Elizabeth de Vermandois   (b ~1081, d 13 February 1131, granddaughter of a Capet King, Henry I, of France, who married William de Warenne  2nd Earl of Surrey. It ascends via The Capetians, The Robertians to join our Direct Male Line again. A notable fact on this line is that Robert the Strong (b ~820) married Adela/ide of Alsace and Tours b ~819 a descendent of Tonantius Ferreolus of Rome, (b~410--d?) Praetorian Prefect of Gaul, via the Dukes of Moselle, Dukes of Alsace & Counts of Upper Alsace. The Plantagenet Line mentioned above, carries on down from Adela's father Hugh of Tours , Count of Upper Alsace b ~ 0765, until Tertulle the Breton (lived 821-?) who was awarded Count of Anjou after marrying Petronille of Andech, a granddaughter of Charlemagne's. This Line than descends to Ermenegarde, b 1018, who married Geoffrey II “Ferreol”Count of Gatinais b ~ 1000 , which family thus inherited the County of Anjou. These Angevins gave rise to the Plantagenets and via Hamelin Plantagenet the later de Warenne Earls of Surrey, whom some believe to be the ancestors of the Poynton Warrens, but this is a "may be" and I have examined the issue XXXX (please seeCambridgeshire/ Hertfordshire Warren Wallers were descended from the Poynton Warrens and I have examined this issue (Note 5). The important places mentioned are shown in the Maps or in the family pages.

KINGS & NOBLES IN THE FRANKISH EMPIRE

The first of which, with reasonable documentary evidence, was:


1. Flavius Richomeres (Richomer), a Salian Frank who came to prominence as the Comes domesticorum of  Emperors Gratian & Valentinian II , in ~ 377, Senior Ordinary Consul in 384,
comes et magister utriusque militiae (388-393) in the Eastern Prefecture under
Theodosius I
b ~340
d ~393 
m Aescyla

2.Theudemeres(Theodosius,Theudemer)  King of Thérouanne (Northern Pas De Calais) in a Federated "Kingdom" within the Roman Empire (Foederati)
b 374
Blésinde de Cologne
d 414
Possibly lost his position at court after 395 on the death of Theodosius I and the purge of "barbarians" from the court of Emperor Arcadius by Eutropius He may have fled to his father's tribe, the Salian Franks in
Belgica.

In 413 a Roman army entered Frankish held territory, possibly in retaliation for their support of the Roman usurper, Jovinus. Theudemeres and his mother were executed by the sword on the orders of  Postumus Dardanus, the praetorian prefect (governor) in Gaul, who had remained loyal to Honorius. The family lost Imperial Sponsors and 
became Tribal Chiefs (Kings) of their Salian Tribe; opposed to the Empire.
 


3. Clodio(n)/Clo(au)dius
King of the Salian Franks
b ~392
d ~447
Invaded the Empire in 428
He is documented in Roman records and may be the real father of Childeric I rather than the possibly mythical Merovech..

4? Merovech (means sea creature) King of the Salian Franks. This link may be mythological. Several genealogists assert that his name reflects  a commom Frankish mythological belief in their descent from a sea creature. It may be that his fathering of Childeric (definitely an historical person) was inserted much later to enhance the non-roman validity of this line of Salian Kings.
b ~412
d~458
m Clodeswinthe of the Salian Franks 

5 Childeric I King of the Salian Franks
b ~436
d 24 Nov 481
m Basina dau of Widelphrus, King of the Thuringians
476 After a battle at Orleans with Odoacer, the leader of the Skirians who led an Army of Skirians from Eastern Europe in alliance with the Goths and Saxons, Childeric and  Odoacer made a peace treaty which allowed Odoacer to divert his Army to conquer the Italian part of the Western Roman Empire,


6 Clovis I commander of Frankish Foederati in the Province of
Belgica Secunda, {Gallia Belgica west of the Meuse river). One of the Kings of the Salian Franks. His base was probably Tournai. He conquered the other Salian Kings. In 490 Ragnacaire , based at Cambrai and in 491 Chararic, based at Tongres. . Clovis converted to Catholicism in 496 please see Slow death of the Roman Empire in the West
