It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

Find your roots!

There is some confusion with the families covered on this page. As is often the case, ROYL provides useful leads but is thought to have sometimes confused sons with sons-in-law. The following was combined from various sources and should be viewed with the caution appropriate to all pages within this 'Ancient & Mythical' section of the database. [The titles Count, Marquis, Duke, etc warrant further investigation as they may not be being applied with appropriate consistency.]
1. Bonifacio I of Tuscany
A. Bonifacio II of Tuscany a 811
i. Bonifacio III of Tuscany, Count of Lucca a 829
a. Adalbert I of Lucca, Duke of Tuscany
m Rohaut of Spoleto dau of Guido III, Duke of Spoleto
1 Adalbert II 'the Rich' of Lucca, Marquis of Tuscany b 855, d 19.09.915
m Bertha of Lorraine b 866, d 08.03.924/5, dau of Lothar II, King of Lorraine
A Guido of Lucca, Duke of Tuscany d c929
i Adalbert III of Lucca and Este, Marquis of Tuscany
a Humberto I, Count of Lucca, Marquis of Este d 15.10.975
m c945 Willa de Camerino of Spoleto dau of Bonifacius, Duke of Spoleto
1 Humberto II, Count of Genoa, Marquis of Este d c1018
Most web sites that cover this family agree with ROYL table CCCCXVI and show Azzo I who married Artopergue and was father of Azzo II who married Kunigunde as son of this Humberto. However, there is an inconsistency within ROYL as table CCXLII shows Azzo II as son of Hugh, Marquis of Este, presumably the Hugo shown by table CCCCXVI as brother of Azzo I. GenEU shows the parents of Azzo I as Hugo son of a different Alberto Azzo by Marie d'Este. We have some faith in GenEU and suspect that the connection was as follows ...
A Marie d'Este
m 995 Azzo, Clount of Genoa and Milan below
2 Adalbert, Marquis of Este
A Gisela of Vincenze
m Anselm I, Marquis of Savona d before 1014
B Lamberto of Spoleto d c932
The following connection is reported by
i Giovanni, Count of Laurino
m Gaitelgrima dau of Atenolfo, Count of Teano
a Giovanni, Prince of Salerno d 999
m Sikelgaita of Salerno dau of Landolfo II, Count of Capua
1 Guaimar of Salerno d 1031
m Gaitelgrima d 1027, dau of Pandolfo the Elder, Prince of Benevento
A Guaimar, Prince of Salerno d 03.06.1052
m Purpora de Tabelloria
i Sikelgaita of Salerno b 1025, d 27.07.1090
m 1058 Roger Guiscard de Hauteville, Duke of Apulia and Calabria d 1085
C Ermengarde of Lucca b c900, d after 29.02.932
m 914 Adalbert, Margrave of Ivrea, Count of Parma d c924
ii. Beroald
Clarifying the male-line ancestry we show for this family has been made particularly difficult by the frequency of the appearance in different generations of the names Alberto or Adalbert and/or Humberto or Oberto, some of the former using the additional name of Azzo. This warrants further investigation for which we do not have the time at present. The following largely follows GenEU with presumptions on certain wives as indicated.
Alberto Azzo I
m 953 Ermengarde of Tuscany d 987 possibly a link to the above family ??
1. Alberto Azzon II b c954, d 995
m 975 Alde von Sachsen
A. Hugo I b c976, d 1025
