This work, originally published in 1974, more than thirty years after the appearance of Volume I, is composed of more than seventy accepted lines of descent of living people from the Emperor Charlemagne. Each line is carefully documented, generation by generation, and has been verified and approved by Timothy F. Beard, Genealogist General of the Order of the Crown of Charlemagne. Each chapter is headed with the name of the immigrant ancestor through whom the descent is traced, followed by each family name in the line of descent in America. This work also contains a chapter on “Charlemagne and His Children,” by Prof. J. A. Cabannis, and a lengthy survey of contemporary genealogical scholarship by Timothy Beard.
