Non-existing husband of Teta of Bohemia

+4 votes

While trying to clean up the mythical early Czech rulers I came about Teta, the second daughter of Krok. Whoever created that profile gave her a husband Slavoj. Not only does no such husband appear in any of the early sources for the legend, the only Slavoj in the literature this early on supposedly lived about 150 years after Teta and her sisters were supposed to have lived and is the product of a fabrication published in 1817 and proven to be a hoax in 1888. In order to clean up the profile and move it to the appropriate project I would, therefore, like to delete this husband and leave him to be recycled or whatever other use there could be for him. Since his present LNAB is "of Bohemia" I do not see what to do with the profile, Though.

I think the LNAB for a nonexistent or fraudulent person needs to be LNAB that one wishes the person didn't have.  For instance, imagine that there was a profile for a Jake Fitz William, said to be a "natural" son of William the Conqueror.

Of course there is no such person, so a non-existent person can't be "fitz" (son of) a real person.

But if Jake Fitz William's identity is prevalent on the internet, that is how people are going to be looking for him, and one objective of the Disproven Existence Project is to identify the people who never existed and tell the truth about them.  So people need to find him as "Fitz William."

The same would go for "Of Bohemia."  He never existed, and he's a fraud, so he's not of Bohemia.  But that's how people will look for him.

He should be disconnected from all other profiles, and the explanation you gave above should be on his profile so that people who find him will be told the truth about him.

And because's been disconnected, people will never find him by following a line of descent or ascent, because he's been de-linked.  He'll only be found if people are looking for Teta of Bohemia, and then this will pop up to tell them about him.
