That's a lot of research, Chris!  Do you have sources for each of those connections?

they are part of the "Hart Family History" 1942 by William Lincoln Hart, Alliance Ohio.   many members of the Hart, Warren, andSwift families.

the preface indicates that, concerning the earlier generations,  the author leaned heavily on "Stephen Hart and his Descendants" by Alfred Andrews in 1875.

I'm sorry to say so, but it 's all fantasy -- there's no evidence to back it up, and it should not be added here at wikitree.  As I discovered many years ago, Richard Warren's parents are unknown, but there is a false old royal lineage that has been disproven.  If you find actual evidence for Richard Warren's parents, then you will be famous.

Although it is good to look at early sources for these lineages, you have to be careful that they are validated by primary sources, and also take into account modern research.

So apart from the issue of Richard Warren's parents not being known. there are also problems with some of the early genealogy you mention.

Although there has been many researchers looking for a link between ancient Rome and early medieval Europe, and there have been theories and suppositions, there is no actual proof for such a link.

The link between the Salian Franks and the Carolingians as represented by Charlemagne again is not known for sure, and no sources written at that time mention it.

Also Gundreda or Gundrada, was thought to be the daughter of William I the Conqueror and/or his wife Matilda of Flanders, but modern research now thinks that it is neither and her parents are unknown.

Thank you, John. Writing my question when I was tired, I clearly didn't show my suspicion that it was wishful fabrication. it certainly would be remarkable to see so many related royal families over such a long, 1500 years, period of time.

along other lines, I have documented and verifiable lineage reaching to 1500 a.d. through Plymouth Colony.  I look forward to expanding that .

BTW, this sort of thing is why there is a pre-1500 badge requirement for people to work with these older profiles.  (and why I'm not anxious to get the badge).  The information for such time periods is sparse and needs lots of analysis to evaluate whether it's correct and properly sourced.
