Dagobert I ruled Austrasia (later part of the Frankish Empire) from 623-634. One of his descendants married Charles Martel, who was nicknamed “The Hammer”. King Charles ruled Francia as “Duke and Prince of the Franks” from 737-741. He was described as a brilliant general and effective expellor of Arab forces that kept invading. Charles was a descendant of King Pepin I (who was also the father of Charlemagne).
King Hugh’s father was Duke Hugh the Great, and Duke Hugh's father was King Robert I, who, at the time was ruler of what was then called “Western Francia”. Robert’s father, Robert the Strong, was Marquis of the land when it was called “Neustria”. He was killed by Vikings.
In addition, Arthur Fuller was the son of Sarah Osborn-Fuller, and her Osborn line was descended from, among other things, the Lusignan Dynasty, the notorious barons of western France.
