I added tags for Medieval and Euroaristo.  This brings it to the attention of more members . . .

On many of the medieval profiles, dates of birth (and death) aren't known and are just estimated.  So a lot of the time, someone has just entered an estimated date of birth while leaving the death date empty.

Why not ask the Profile Manager? She is very active.

I suspect I adopted this profile and then did not do much, if anything, to improve it. I'll add something for the death. I note his various i.p.m.s are not consistent about the day of his death, one giving Nov. 1, 1415 and another giving Nov. 3. If you are interested in the ipms contact me by email and I will send them to you, they seem too lengthy to put on the profile.
