I'm particularly interested in the claim that Rollo the Viking is a direct ancestor of every recent European monarch. Obviously, it's difficult to find family trees that span over 1,000 years
If it's about accepting that Sisif job, I think You should drop the "tree" idea and use rather a 3D maze.Assuming that all recent European monarchs are related to each other, which is probably true, then it would theoretically be possible to draw a single family tree showing all of those monarchs, but such a tree would be incredibly large and complex, impossible to display on a single sheet of paper or on a single computer screen. I've dabbled with drawing family trees, but I find it difficult to portray more than five or six generations on a single sheet of paper.
Short Answer yes, Rollo was the ancestor of (almost) every recent European Monarch.I'm particularly interested in the claim that Rollo the Viking is a direct ancestor of every recent European monarch. Obviously, it's difficult to find family trees that span over 1,000 years

There is something called polygamy. The Ottomans practiced it, having many wives at the same time. Each son of a Sultan could have only one single mother.sevaral years ago I came upon an article that presented a chart giving a carolingian descent for the bonapartes, thus, if true, they did have royal ancestry.
as for the ottomans, osman I did have serbian and byzantine consorts snd thus are related
Kilij Arslan II - WikipediaAs Arnold of Lübeck reports in his Chronica Slavorum, he was present at the meeting of Henry the Lion with Kilij-Arslan during the former's pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 1172. When they met near Tarsus, the sultan embraced and kissed the German duke, reminding him that they were blood cousins ('amplexans et deosculans eum, dicens, eum consanguineum suum esse'). When the duke asked for details of this relationship, Kilij Arslan informed him that 'a noble lady from the land of Germans married a king of Russia who had a daughter by her; this daughter's daughter arrived to our land, and I descend from her.'
