Nicknamed the Pious, Robert (b. c. 972-1031) was the son of Hugh Capet, the namesake of the Capetians, father of Henri, King of France, and father of Adela (or Adelaide), the mother-in-law of William the Conqueror.
Hugh (c. 939-996) is the namesake of the Capetian dynasty, the first king. The Capetians reigned in an all-male succession to 1328. Through collateral lines his descendants ruled up to and after the French Revolution. Text of the oath he swore at his coronation is included.
Hugh (d. 956) was a transitional figure between his father Robert I and mother Beatrix (female descendant of Charlemagne) and his son Hugh Capet, after whom the Capetian dynasty is named.
Dateline Virginia, March 1661/2: A husband and wife with their two servants gets lashes for striking the High Sheriff. It’s one symptom of a dysfunctional family.
Robert (865-923) was of the Robertian line in France, which feeds into the Capetians.
Dateline: Virginia, March 1651: The Governor is Sir William Berkeley. King Charles I was beheaded in 1649, and Oliver Cromwell took over and declared England a Republic.

Herbert (880 to 943) was the count of Vermandois and bridges Charlemagne and the Carolingians to the Normans and William the Conqueror. His line is called the Herbertines or the House of Vermandois.

Herbert I was a great-great-grandson of Charlemagne, and his daughter Beatrix married Robert I, grandfather of Hugh Capet, the namesake of the Capetian dynasty. UPDATED: a new addendum and links to documented proofs.
