Wikipedia has an excellent site with many famous people.  Not sure about the Conqueror but Napoleon is there

Napoleon

Napoleon Bonaparte belonged to haplogroup E1b1b1c1* (E-M34*). This haplogroup has its highest concentration in Ethiopia and in the Near East (Jordan). According to the authors of the study, "Probably Napoléon also knew his remote oriental patrilineal origins, because Francesco Buonaparte (the Giovanni son), who was a mercenary under the orders of the Genoa Republic in Ajaccio in 1490, was nicknamed “The Maur of Sarzane” ".[46]

Tracing father to son for 35 generations I have found that my 35th ggfather is Baldwin II Strong Arm Duke of Flanders.  Rollo the Uncle of William the Conquorer seems implicated in Normandy /Flanders so we can trace 25 father to sons from Baldwin II to John Sutton's son Sir Robert Dudley his 25th direct line male father to son descendant.  I have traced 10 moregenations to my self tested in 2013 as I-1 M253.  Thus we might be pointed toward the sister of Baldwin II who married Le Teuton de Sutton also known as I-1 M253.  I also match Sutton and Dudley lines at 2nd cousin 23/25 markers M253 and Sutton at Robert on Family Tree 60/67  I-1 M253 a 6th proved cousin of Sir Robert dudley.  That gives you a fairly accurate indicator of the Sutton Ancestry back to the same family of Baldwin II.  I also have 8 baldwin male to male ancestors on my mother's side.  DCR 1948

Seems like this might have something to do with this person

Which only makes me wonder what they're on, and where can I get some.
