Re: Safavids and Mughals of Greek descent

Thanks, Frank. That connection I knew. I have read also that there is a direct descent from Charlemagne to the Mughal emperors and to the sultans of Brunei but have never seen the detail.
There is supposed to be a link between Charlemagne and the late Byzantine emperors, probably through Hungary. But as I recall, there are some uncertainty about a couple of the generations.
As for the Sultans of Brunei, I don't know. Do they claim descent from the Mughals? Or from the Bourbons of Bhopal?
