(1) Some of the many inter-marriages may be seen by clicking HERE.
(2) There is just one connection between this page and the rest of the database: the marriage between Genissa, widely but (apparently) erroneously identified as a daughter of Emperor Claudius, and Arviragus, King of Brittany. We will remove that connection in due course but will keep it for the moment pending finding another connection to the rest of the database!
(3) This file will be added to and developed over time. Contributions and suggestions would be welcome.

  The following Genissa is widely reported to have been a daughter of Emperor Claudius. However, a contributor (JdH, 21.08.06) reported that that is false although she may possibly have been fostered by him. JdH reported that, whilst Genissa ("who was educated in the imperial household") did marry Arviragus of Brittany, the idea that she was Claudius's daughter (by blood) was invented by Geoffrey of Monmouth, later Bishop of St. Asaph, in 'Historia Regum Brittanniae' which was completed in 1138. We do not doubt that that view is correct (i.e. that Genissa was not a blood daughter of Emperor Claudius) but nevertheless provisionally keep the widely-reported connection as otherwise we have no excuse to include the above Roman families within our database!
