2 There are a number of situations where our main sources contradict each other as to the wives/mothers. Our reasons for preferring one source over another are sometimes somewhat arbitrtary but in each case the decision was taken after considering what some other sources suggest. We cannot be sure that we have always made the right choice so in due course we may amend what we show as & when we come across other sources.
