Well, according to biographers on the Count women were never mentioned in his life story - doesn't mean they weren't there, but they seriously were not mentioned.
My theory that Edgar de Valcourt-Vermont was the Count was just blown out of the water by one of his descendants. I thought it was far too easy to be right. Any good researcher will tell you that this sort of thing deserves a little frowny face :( but it only means that more research will have to be done which gets it's own happy face :) .
I'll adjust the blog when I am more awake.
