This guy appears quite fantastically looking like a cross-dresser. Good. good.


Why is Albert II, who was Emperor Elect, and was King of Hungary and Bohemia, entered in Wikipedia as a king of "Germany"? - Nunh-huh 22:24, 5 Jan 2005 (UTC)

hm this is indeed strange. shouldn´t this article be Albert II, Holy Roman Emperor considering "Germany" as such didn´t exist back then...? Antares911 19:14, 12 July 2005 (UTC)
Albert was neither Emperor Elect nor Holy Roman Emperor. Albert II, King of the Romans would be appropriate, but his title was only "King of Germany" or "King of the Romans" - he was not Emperor or Emperor-Elect. THe title of "Emperor-Elect" was first used by Maximilian I. john k 19:17, 12 July 2005 (UTC)
BTW, Germany most certainly did exist back then, and Albert II was most certainly its king. It was one of the three component monarchies of the Holy Roman Empire, along with the Kingdom of Italy and the Kingdom of Burgundy. john k 19:17, 12 July 2005 (UTC)
In several sources and also in documents of his own era, he is called, and he himself calls himself, "Albert, king of Romans" - "rex Romanorum". This makes Albert, Roman King, Albert of Holy Roman Empire, Albert, King of Romans and even Albert, German King (Philip, rex Teutonicum...) quite acceptable names for the article.

If people are unhappy with his roman or german title or if a precise one cannot be agreed upon, then this guy could go under name Albert I of Hungary. Shilkanni 14:33, 24 May 2006 (UTC)


but his name was Albrecht - not Albert -- Hartmann Schedel Prost 12:12, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
