Ok, I figured it out... this is a mash-up profile, based on a mythical Guelph pedigree (associated with the fictional Pharamond). You can see it repeated by Collins.[1]

There seems to be another British chronicle(s), that makes him a descendant of a mythical count of Anjou -- reflected in the ascendants of his WikiTree pedigree (Hughes, 2007).[2]

It would be nice to get Bourgogne as his LNAB again.

That is a good question. I left it with the last name because I thought that if the name is available, it takes precedence over the region name, which would be Bourgogne.

He should be Bourgogne, shouldn't he? Do we want to ask Lianne to recover the Bourgogne ID?
