The scope of this project, initially, will be the restored Dukes of Aquitaine from the House of Poitiers (Ramnulfids) under the Frankish Kings of the 9th-12th centuries.

The Ramnulfids, or the House of Poitiers, were a French dynasty ruling the County of Poitou and Duchy of Aquitaine in the ninth through twelfth centuries. Their power base was Poitou. In the early tenth century, they contested the dominance of northern Aquitaine and the ducal title to the whole with the House of Auvergne. In 1032, they inherited the Duchy of Gascony and thus uniting it with Aquitaine. By the end of the eleventh century they were the dominant power in the southwestern third of France. The founder of the family was Ramnulf I, who became count in 835. (Ramnulfids, Wikipedia)
