Descent from Ragnvald Mørejarl

Ragnvald Mørejarl, Harald Hårfagre's henchman, is at an interesting juncture in the genealogical tree.

His father-line reaches back to Fornjot, the ancient giant of Finland.

The man Snorre claims as his son, Ganger-Rolf, called Rollo in Normadie, is a founding father of lots of European dynasties - but his descent is disputed; some claim he was a Dane. The Explicio foundation has taken on an effort to DNA-test some of his descendants.

This page looks at the other side: What possible male-line descendants do we have who were NOT descendants of Ganger-Rolf?

Tooling

HistoryLink's "descendant chart" with Y-chromosome only can give us 15 generations a shot. Some samples:

Then it's just a matter of picking out the branches of the star that reach the furthest and explore them further.

Ragnvald's other sons

Brothers of Ganger-Rolf:

  • Ivar (Snorre) - no known children
  • Tore Teiande (Snorre) - 154 male descendants in the first 15 generations. All living descendants go through Eiliv Torsteinsson (985-1050).
  • Gutum (known only from Dudo of Saint-Quentin) - since he's on the "Rollo" side of documentation, not explored here.

Half-brothers:

  • Hallad - one listed son, he has no male descendants.
  • Turf-Einar - 34 male descendants, last one died around 1131 (jarls of Orkney)
  • Hrollaug - 3 sons, 1 of which is listed with a male descendant, but no 3rd generation. This may be worth exploring further - Landnamabok should have more to say about this line.

Thus it seems that according to what we now have on Geni, a living male line has to go through Tore Teiande and Eiliv Torsteinsson.
