Brunswick-27 and Welf-21 appear to represent the same person because: Duplicate profile of Henry IV duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, who was also Henry I of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. Husband of Catherine of Pomerania and father of Henry II/V (there is conflict between the English numbering which refers to the Lüneburg title, and the German one referring to Wolfenbüttel, but they are the same person).
