Beyond Rognvald, things get pretty confused. Norr has about 25 generations
going back to Oden. RC doesn't agree. But some RC names coming down from RC's
Odin agree in the upper portion. But the dates are some 250 years different.
RC and Kraentzler agree in taking Rognvald back three more generations.
Russell goes way back to Olaf the Sharp-eyed, King of Rerik.
