We show 2 alternative ancestries for Werner, ancestor of this family which is sometimes called the Salians, apparently after Conrad II, the Emperor. The first ancestry is as given by 'Royal Genealogies'. To the cynical it is suspect if only because it provides a direct descent from Charlemagne (Clerhardus's mother being one of Charlemagne's granddaughters), something that many later leaders were keen to show which meant that such descents were often falsified.
Clerhardus, a Count
1. Odo, a Count
  A. Conrad, Count of Franconia (d 905)
