Witte (or Wecta) I, King of Saxons (d 350)
1. Witte (or Wecta) I, King of Saxons (d 350)
  A. Wihgils (or Witigislus), King of Saxons (d 434)
  i. Hengist, King of Saxons in Kent (d 474/488)
  'Royal Genealogies' reports that Hengist went to England but indicates that at least one son, Hartwaker, remained on the Continent. The following descent has so far only been found in 'Royal Genealogies' and is, at least in part, somewhat suspect.
  a. Hartwaker, Prince of Saxons (d 480)
  (1) Hattwigate, Prince of Saxons (d 524)
  (A) Hulderic, King of Saxons (d 540)
  (i) Bodicus, Prince of Saxons (d 568)

  (((C))) Wittekind III went to France
  (((i)))Robert I 'the Strong', Count of Paris (b 820, d 15.09.866) EGHJRWY
This leads to 'Capet01' which offers an alternative (and possibly more accurate) version of Robert's ancestry as well as showing his immediate descendants.
