For the profile Bride-8 named "War Trophy Bride" c. 815 A. D. - does anyone know who this is supposed to be? I am, first of all, curious, but it is also bothering me as I believe the name should be "Unknown" and perhaps 'war trophy bride' somewhere in the biography.

If one checks a profile or two along this lineage, there is a note that the source material is a book by Gabrielle Culmer called:

The Eleutherian Voyagers and Beyond: A Genealogical Study of Early Eleutherans

Which in turn apparently recounts the settling of the island of Eleuthera (part of The Bahamas) in the 17th century. How this includes any genealogical data on a Viking named Steven in the very early 9th century is unknown to me at this time.

genealogy without sources is mythology

Finding a quality source to autenticate this profile seem very unlikely to happen. 

Profile is GEDcom junk. Likely that has never had a source except for links created by lay people desiring royal connections.

Another curiosity; starting with https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Culmer-75 there are four straight generations of "Unknown" Culmers.
