Charlemagne or Charles the Great (2 April 742 – 28 January 814), was king of the Franks from 768, king of the Lombards from 774, and emperor of the Romans from 800. During the Early Middle Ages, he united the majority of western and central Europe. He reached the height of his power in 800 when he was crowned “Emperor of the Romans” by Pope Leo III on Christmas Day at Rome’s Old St. Peter’s Basilica.
Charlemagne has been called the “Father of Europe” (Pater Europae) as he united most of Western Europe for the first time since the classical era of the Roman Empire.
Charlemagne died in 814, having ruled as emperor for almost 14 years and as king for almost 46 years. He was laid to rest in his imperial capital city of Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle)
Charlemagne was the eldest son of Pepin the Short and Bertrada of Laon.
Ons is via Ouma GAUM [geb. VAN DER MERWE] sowel as Oupa FOWLER en Ouma FOWLER [geb. BRITZ] verwant aan die Franse Hugenoot Jacques DE SAVOYE wat in 26 April 1688 aan die Kaap arriveer met die skip Oosterland. Jacques bring sy gesin, bestaande uit sy vrou en drie kinders, saam met hom na die Kaap.
In ‘n baie lang en breedvoerige ondersoek wat in 2014 gepubliseer is op die webwerf First Fifty Years en getiteld Cape Mothers. Groote Catrijn van Paliacatta (c. 1631-1683), her slave Maria van Bengale and her de Savoye daughter-in-law Marguerite-Thérèse (1673-1742) gee die genealoog Mansell Upham ‘n uiteensetting van Jacques DE SAVOYE se lewe hier aan die Kaap.
In dieselfde artikel [p. 137] meld Upham dat “the possiblity that the De Savoyes might even be a cadet branch of the Italian Royal House of Savoy seems to have escaped most peoples’ notice until recently and there may even be a connection to Charlemagne if we are to accept uncritically the quirks and vagaries of latter-day internet genealogies:”
Dan gaan Upham voort om ‘n inskrywing aan te haal wat op 22 Augustus 2014 geplaas is deur Dr Johan Hugo op die Facebook-groep South African Genealogy en wat die DE SAVOYE-konneksie met Charlemagne as volg uiteensit:
