Rollo the Viking, Sinclairs and Charlemagne


     I was too hasty in reporting that the Sinclairs were descended from 
Charlemagne.  Upon reading further in David Crouch's book The Normans I 
discovered that Rollo the Viking's son, William Longsword, and William 
Longsword's wife Leutgarde (She was descended from Charlemagne.) had no 
children.  It was William Longsword and Sprota of Brittany whose children 
were the ancestors of William the Conqueror and the Sinclairs.
