place of birth in date field: Eu, Normandy

place of birth in biography: La Marche, Poictou, France.

I believe that should be spelled Poitou? But which is correct?

De Lusignan-125 and Lusignan-6 appear to represent the same person because: De Lusignan-125 appears to be simply a mistake, attached to the brother of the real husband. For example even the bio text we have for Henry mentions Humphrey! (So apart from merging we should disconnect from Henry it seems. Unless there is a special story here.) Medlands and other easy to check sources seem to indicate nothing known of what happened to Henry.

Maud is 24 degrees from Jim Angelo, 22 degrees from Willis Carrier and 10 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
