Vandalism?[edit]

I'm myopic, it's true, but this does not seem to be reverting vandalism, which is what "rvv" is usually understood as. I don't see a reason to revert at all. Am I missing something? Angus McLellan (Talk) 23:12, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

It was an anonymous IP that may have been a vandal itself. I saw some issues in the article that I fixed. How come she is referred to as Ælfthryth throughout the article even though the title is Efrida? Either she should be referred to as Elfrida throughout the article (except for the first sentence that shows alternate names) or the article's title should be changed to Ælfthryth. --PiMaster3 talk 23:38, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
She's on my list of Anglo-Saxon-people-whose-articles-have-to-be-renamed. I'd have to rename the other Ælfthryths, and move Ælfthryth to Ælfthryth (disambiguation), but I haven't figured out exactly what to call them. Presumably this one could be Ælfthryth, Queen of England and Aelfthryth could be Ælfthryth, Countess of Boulogne [oops]] Ælfthryth, Countess of Flanders. There's also Ælfthryth, Queen of Mercia, Mrs Cenwulf of Mercia, about whom I could manage a couple of paragraphs, probably. What might be called Ælfthryth, putative daughter of Offa of Mercia would be better to stay at Alfrida. I don't think there are any other Ælfthryths. Elfrida and Aelfthryth would redirect to the disambiguation page and Alfrida should have an {{otherpeople2}} hatnote on it. Hmm, looks like I have a plan!
