I thought Charlemagne founded the Holy Roman Empire. He was the one who booted all the Goths and spread far and wide. Then I thought Otto was the first emperor not of Carolingian descent? Had them all otherwise.

You could say that;
but what I have is;

Otto I the Great (23 November 912 in Wallhausen – 7 May 973 in Memleben), son of Henry I the Fowler and Matilda of Ringelheim, was Duke of Saxony, King of Germany, King of Italy, and "the first of the Germans to be called the emperor of Italy" according to Arnulf of Milan.
While Charlemagne had been crowned emperor in 800, his empire had been divided amongst his grandsons, and following the assassination of Berengar of Friuli in 924, the imperial title had lain vacant for nearly forty years. On 2 February 962, Otto was crowned Emperor of what would later become the Holy Roman Empire.

Thanks for keeping me on my toes, Alix...... too many people don't, too many times.......

LOL I'm about halfway between getoutamykitchen and Alix. I knew numbers 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, and 12. I didn't completely get all of those either though, as I didn't remember the numbers for Edward and George. A couple of the others were too far back in my brain to recall.
