A Wikipedia fantasy?

Wikipedia's article on the Esterházy family gives the princes ordinals. For instance, the late Fürst is referred to as Paul V, his predecessor is called Nikolaus IV, and his successor Anton II. I cannot find another genealogy that assigns ordinals to the princes of this family. Is this an example of a Wikipedia contributor taking editorial liberties by applying a convention where it never existed?
