Dorothy Barbee is the 37 x great granddaughter of Charlemagne. While I certainly have not established the proof records for those 40 generations, the popular ancestry of Rebecca Webb, her great grandmother, is a direct line back to Charlemagne, and from there to a King of the Danes called Skjold, and in some versions, all the way back to Isaac. The link back from Skjold to Isaac is tenuous at best, as it includes Woden and Frigg. As much as I like to think we're all a bit divine, that's probably a stretch.
This pedigree is copied on hundreds of family trees. Whether or not a relationship exists between us and the ancient royal families of Europe is factually based, I am not sure. I do know it makes for one heck of a family story.
