If someone knows that the image on this page is not 'Gerloc' than why is it on this page?

Poitou-1 and Normandie-81 appear to represent the same person because: Guillaume d'Aquitaine married Gerloc de Normandie who took the name Adela when baptized. There is only evidence for one marriage for the duke.

Adela is 36 degrees from Rosa Parks, 32 degrees from Anne Tichborne and 23 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
