Province?[edit]

Hi there, Álava is not a province, neither are Biscay or Guipúzcoa. The three are offcially called "historic territories", and calling them provinces is a mistake (a common one, though).—This unsigned comment is by 213.86.197.188 (talkcontribs) 24 September 2005.

I believe it is both, at least according to the Spanish wiki equivalent.--cjllw | TALK 13:39, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

Naming debate[edit]

I have started a general naming debate on the naming conventions of Basque provinces at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Basque and would like to invite all interested parties to take part in the debate. Akerbeltz (talk) 12:02, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Heir of the Ancient Lord of Ávila?[edit]

A region or territory cannot be an 'heir' to anything, as by definition an heir inherits something and a territory cannot inherit itself. Should this be seat of the ancient lord of Ávila? I don't want to correct anything on this page as I'm not a member. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.46.80.10 (talk) 10:51, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
