Princess Of France-53 and Capet-55 appear to represent the same person because: Merging away the profile for Marguerite Princess of France, which has no dates, no connections into a possible duplicate

I've not seen any source that states that she was married, or even betrothed, to John II (Reginar) of Brabant, either before marrying Edward I or after. I think that somewhere in all the changes she has been confused with her step daughter, also called Margaret, who did marry John II of Brabant.
