Tracing that line back, I ended at Rognwald "The Wise" Eysteinsson, born 830 in Oppland, Norway, and died 890 in the Orkney Islands. I don't know how accurate this all is.
This is tracing the male line back from Robert. Could it be R1a1a?

There is also a female connection along the way to Arlogia Vladimirovna (c.1011-1046), daughter of Grand Prince Vladimir of Kievan Rus. Her mother came from Byzantine imperial stock.
