I've removed the image from this profile, it was a very fanciful image that wasn't of Gerloc. Though I seriously doubt that it is of Eleanor of Aquitaine either.

That could be, John. I'm going on Pinterest postings but they are also without attribution. Can we also delete the background images? (not necessary, I just find them a bit annoying, since they are imaginary - a hand sketch or picture of a castle or something might be less silly.)

This photo is bogus. Yes, is Eleanor of Aquitaine, not Gerloc. Nice to invent ancestry, isn't it? Please get serious, folks.

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.
