Longshanks-5 and Plantagenet-533 appear to represent the same person because: These 2 profiles both represent Elizabeth the daughter of Edward I, please merge. Plantagenet is the preferred LNAB, Longshanks is her father's nickname and not appropriate to be applied to her.

FMG lists 10 children for Humphrey and Elizabeth. The list includes William (Bohun-35), son of the duplicate Elizabeth, but it does not list Hugh. The source for Hugh appears to be Wikipedia, which lists 11 children, including both Hugh and William. The Wikipedia article states:

"Hugh de Bohun? This name appears only in one medieval source, which gives Bohun names (see Flores Historiarum) and was a probably a copyist's error for "Humphrey". Hugh was never used by the main branch of the Bohuns in England.[4] Date unknown, but after 1302, since she and Humphrey did not marry until late in 1302." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humphrey_de_Bohun,_4th_Earl_of_Hereford

The Unmerged Match of the duplicate Elizabeth's should be merged, as there is no conflict in the children, just an additional Hugh, who may or may not have existed.

Anyone notice the 3-4 husbands she married on the same day named Jan, John Holland? Then the two Humphrey's she married on the same day? One Amazing Lady!

Princess Elizabeth is my 16th Great Grandmother on my father's side of my family tree. Eleanor De Bohn was my 15th great grandmother, she married James (1St Earl of Ormond) Butler. So far. I can trace my father's side of the family to 145 BC.
