About Mrs. Betzalel (hazaken) Ben Yehuda Loeb [4th Maharal Gt.gmother]

Mrs. Bezalel Ben Yehuda Loeb married Rabbi Bezalel (Hazaken) ben Yehuda LOEB, who was reportedly a descendant of King David (91 generations earlier). (See Aryeh Lifschuetz, Avoth Atarah le-Banim, Warsaw (1927) p. 163 and The ESKELES Genealogy by Zeev ESHKOLOT. for claims of descent from R. Hai.)

The ancestral chain goes back ca 18 generations to Rabbi Yossef I. Gaon of Rome. He was executed in 1066 or killed in a pogrom in Granada in 1062, where he served as a Grand Vizier like his father (Rav Hai Gaon, 939-1038) before him. Yoseph Ha-Nagid married the daughter of Rabbi Nissim Ben Yaakov.

In a somewhat different theory, Yoseph was rather the son of Samuel Ha-Nagid, and Hai married a daughter of Samuel Ha-Nagid. (Gaon of the Sura academy 997-1013(?)).
