Boves is certainly not the link. If I knew more I'd edit the statement.--Wetman (talk) 20:45, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
I have changed the link to House of Bove. This appears to be correct based solely on the fact that they have an Ox on their coat of arms. Revcasy (talk) 13:30, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
After further research, I am unable to decide whether House of Bove is correct or not. The appearance of an ox on the coat of arms can be attributed to the nature of the names (Bove, Boves, cf. Bovine). However Bove appears to have no connection to Amien, though the information I find on them is much later, and also allowing for the fact that the noble houses across Europe were all interrelated. So, as I said, inconclusive. I will leave the link in the article for now, as it appears no worse than the old link. Revcasy (talk) 15:00, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
It's from the Boves in Picardy, linked at Boves, Somme (in the diocese of Amiens). Many towns in the Romance continuum had/have similar names owing to shared language, and this is just one. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 15:43, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
So I see. I should have read more carefully! My apologies. =) Revcasy (talk) 16:32, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
