From 1707 until 1857 Neuchatel was part of the Kingdom of Prussia. Until 1806 it was part of the Holy Roman Empire (of the German Nation). In 1815 Frederick William III allowed Neuchatel to join the Swiss Confederation, then not yet an integrated federation, but a confederacy, as a full member. Thus Neuchâtel became the first and only monarchy to join the otherwise entirely republican Swiss cantons. (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuch%C3%A2tel_%28canton%29 - 2012-03-03). During his entire life he was a subject of the king of Prussia. He was a Prussian. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:41, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
Why does the title have Emerich and the text Emer? Languagehat (talk) 15:24, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
Both names appear in reliable sources. If I recall correctly, Emer is the correct name.--Other Choices (talk) 12:20, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
That's fine, but then the title should reflect that. It looks silly to have different names in title and text. The text can include "Also known as Emerich." I'm not going to do it because I know nothing about him and don't want to make the call. Languagehat (talk) 18:28, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
An authoritative source for Vattel's name (and also biographical details) is the introduction to the recent Liberty Fund edition of The Law of Nations here. I'll take care of the move, but it might take some fumbling around, never did that before. --Other Choices (talk) 04:36, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
