In Rik Vigeland's Post #1, his generation 93, the
emperor Basileios I Makedonios (according to Settipani, "Nos
Ancestres de l'antiquite"), had a brother, Bardas, b. 835, d.
after 867. Bardas was father of:
94. Basileios, recteur & magistre, b. 860.
95. Bardas, b. 885. (Generation omitted in Augustan Society's
"Descents from antiquity.")
96. Gregoria, b. 910, m. Pantherios Skleros.
Gregoria and Pantherios had Konstantine Skleros who m.
Sophia Phokas from whom are descended Otto II and Otto III,
Emperors of the West (see Moriarty 87-89). They also had Bardas
Skleros, Konstantine's brother and anti-emperor, from whom
descended the emperor Constantine IX; Vsevolod I and Vladimir
II, Grand Princes of Kiev; the kings of Hungary (See Stuart line
115; Moriarty pp. 143-144.)
There are thus many possible descents from Konstantinos
and Pankalo to the European ruling family which bypass the
parentage of Leo VI questioned by Farmerie and of Charles
Constantine questioned by Leutner.
Of course Settipani was writing "Etudes des possibilites
. . ." and I note quite a few dotted vertical lines in both the
Settipani and the Augustan Societies pedigree charts. These
represent, I take it, the "possibilities."
Still 'tis fun to contemplate a possible lineage that
might compete in antiquity with those of some Chinese. And it
gives the historians large targets :-).
