Vulgrin II "Count of Angoulême" is my 22th great grandfather.
Taillefer-182 and Taillefer-4 do not represent the same person because: Different centuries
Taillefer-182 and Taillefer-4 appear to represent the same person because: His year of birth is incorrect on Taillefer-182, but he is the father of Guillaume, who died in Sicily in 1179, who is the father of Aymer
