You haven't listed any sources that you plan to use. But this profile is very empty so almost anything would be an improvement.

General advice: feel free to update pre-1700 profiles that need proper sourcing and more information. First, read what’s already on the page.  Ask yourself: Does what I'm adding add value to the profile? Always, always source your updates/changes/facts/statements, preferably with primary sources, and using inline citations. Before you make major changes (changes in relationships, or vital statistics) make sure you attempt to contact the profile managers and/or the Project. It's always polite to contact managers if you're going to do a major overhaul.
