But I think if you plow through the academic papers arguing that everyone in
some broad region of the world descend from Charlemagne, their argument
assumes he is almost just the average male of his time --- i.e. it does not
depend on his prolific reproduction which by itself would hardly alter the
argument in any case. Descendant count today is a cumulative result of
things through all the generations down to today.
