These profiles seem to need a lot of work before they can be considered for a merge. Perhaps an Unmerged match would be appropriate
My rationale for merging these profiles (and the other two Jung pairs):

They are both the exact same person.  Whether or not they represent a real or fantasy person, the person is the same, with the same details, the same surname, and were merged into the lowest number represented in the Wikitree Jung surname database.

Both have the EXACT same details:

166                              867

Michael Jung              Michael Jung

1480-1530                   1484-1531

b.  Feuchtwangen        b.  Feuchtwangen

d. Frankenberg             d. Frankenberg

both married in Oberacker

both married to the same woman - exactly the same woman save for a spelling change of Dorothea vs Dorothia

both have middle name Adam

both have mother of Anna (Urner) Jung

both married in 1509

both have father of Hans Jung

Prior to merge, I did an Ancestry soundex search and no names, other than Jung came back.  There are multiple records for Michael Jung in Germany in this time period.

If the sources prove this to be a real person, he will be Jung-166.  If not, he will be Jung-166 {{Disproven Existence}}.

But considering that these profiles represent the same person, with no surname variations, I saw no reason to hold on the merges.

best regards

Merged 867 into 166 - please remember to set merges into the lowest number.  Profile marked {{unsourced}}, bio cleaned and streamlined, and a research notes section added.
