Also 1 Engler Ludovit who moved to USA. Despite of origin already mentioned on internet about origin in Westphalila I found count Engelsalk, border frans count in 9th century at Great Moravia making problems to Svatopluk, who was also my ancestor. Shortcut from history about Engelsalm. Viliam and Engelsalk came from same prince family as king Karolman and king Ludovit Nemec/German. V. and Engelsalk were administrators at Great Moravia. Viliam and Engelsalk were killed by Svatopluk 871. Each of them had 3 little sons. During their youth was appointed other adminstrator on their properties, then they fought for their markcounty. After their growth summer 882 Svatopluk captured second son of Engelsalk and his relative count Vezzil. He cut right hand, tongue and made castration - they had no genitals. Also their people. Their properties were destructed by fire and sword. Mentioned that after these people were made families, surnames Viliam and Engelsalk. Viliams and Engelsalks families, Viliamovci and Engelsalkovci in Slovak or Czech book I used to translate. Sons of Viliam and Engelsalk Meginhoz and Papo tried go against Svatopluk. Svatopluk won and destructed people of army by different ways. Engelsalk, son of Engelsalk took by enforcing not-marriage-daughter of Arnulf and was afraid of him, but later had peace with him and got administration of East Mark /Panonia/ from him. About this writes Fuldske letopisy, Letopisy bertinske and xantenske. Engelsalk was in other book with s and in other with s with sign which reads in Czech and Slovak sh. I also found it written in book as Engelschalk. I found that Andel of Ronovo is probably surname Ronovsky or other family who got predikat of Ronovo, I heard only surname in media or read it.

When you see coat of arms on internet and surnames varions they begin on A also and I found tribes from Great Germania about which write in end of 1st century BC Plinius Starsi/oldest that one part of tribe of Svebs was Angelin/i /Angelin/i/s-I translated from other language/ and was one of greatest tribes and parts, from Longobards to middle Labe settled and multiplied with other German tribes. There existed many German tribes. Existed also Andel of Amalovci, father of Andages, about it is written by Jordanes from 5th century AC. More about this family see Jordanes. Andel means in Czech Engel and Angel, exist surname Andel in Slovakia. In Slovak it is work Anjel. house of Merovejovci before Karol Great: Pipin Short Pipin Heristansky and if I good remember Dagobert, but check in Gotha almanachs/Gothaisches genealogishes Taschenbucher fur die Adels on internet they still should be more lines to Dagobert. I also found Andel/e of Ronovo, Czech noble family, Holy Angelar in times of Great Moravia and Angilbert. Ancestors of Merovejovci is possible to find in some good History of France, it contains more than 20 kings. Engelschalk - see other origin of Engel on ancient faces from Ruperta.
