Aquitaine-221 and Poitou-14 appear to represent the same person because: Two contemporary queens of the France, both from the house of Aquitaine, with the same parents (Aquitaine-221 was originally named Blanche on the profile, but there was no Queen Blanche until more than 200 years later). Same person.

Poitou-27 and Poitou-14 appear to represent the same person because: The dates are out by a couple of years (refer bio of Poitou-27 - dates didn't import correctly) but I think these are intended to be the same person, Poitou-27 being referred to as Princess of Aquitaine in the bio.
