Not weird or unbelievable at all. Via simple mathematics, it is readily evident that a large fraction of all living persons with significant European descent are descended from Charlemagne (just as they would be for any other random person living in Europe ~40 generations ago who had lots of offspring).

Though I disagree with you about the likelihood, that doesn't mean I don't find it interesting....

That there is some elitism involved in who becomes president I have no doubt, but to pin this to a "sons of Charlemagne secret society" conspiracy theory is ludicrous, since easily hundreds of millions of people alive, including a significant fraction of all Americans, can claim the same "bloodline" (diluted to insignificance).
