Boleslava of Bohemia did not exist

WikiTree lists a Boleslava as daughter of Břetislav I of Bohemia and Judith von Schweinfurt. Problem is she cannot be found anywhere in the literature, not even in the usual unsourced online genealogies (I admit, however, that I did not do an exhaustive search there). I would, therefore, like to propose to unlink her from this family.

Thanks Helmut.

Rather than just unlinking her from existing parents, I would rather merge her away.  I know we used to keep these legendary/un-sourced profiles in case someone recreated them, but I think the chances of that happening are much less these days.

Perhaps we could turn her into her nephew Boleslav, who doesn't appear to have an existing profile on Wikitree?

Agree with changing  her to Boleslav and attaching as child to Vratislav and Svatava.

Leo's site is quite good about listing sources. He does not list her but he sometimes does not list children that died young, do not marry or have offspring.  Perhaps by looking at the sources he mentions you can get a more complete view of the family. http://www.genealogics.org/getperson.php?personID=I00020268&tree=LEO

Thanks for the suggestion James.

I'm fairly sure from memory that Royal Highness, just lists direct ancestry, not families, other children etc.

I don't have a copy of the Europaische Stammtafeln, that Leo cites, but the latest version, edited by Detlev Schwennicke. 1999, doesn't mention Boleslava

Googling for "boleslava 1033" on google.co.uk gets me a long list of junk sources, all copied from each other.  No further information.  Not a sniff of a real source anywhere
