Octavius the Roman Emperor is a far, far, far more important and well-known historical figure, and entering "Octavius" should lead to that article, not this one. Someone ought to change that. If nothing else, it is yet another example of gross UK bias, something with which this encyclopedia is unfortunately rife. 188.8.131.52 14:38, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
- No, Octavian is a far, far better-known name, in english, for the Roman Emperor, and entering "Octavian" leads to him, while this person isn't on the Octavian (disambiguation) page at all. So I would say it's fine as it is.
- As for UK bias, I find that surprising; I would have thought the encyclopaedia (sic) was much more weighted towards the US. But most of the time thats no problem, is it? Xyl 54 13:49, 20 July 2007 (UTC)
- Agreed with the anon. "Octavius" in English, even in Britain, usually refers to the Roman emperor Augustus, who was also the bearer of the name who first made the name famous (later Octaviuses, like this one, were named after Augustus). I am thus adding a disambiguation phrase to this page. —Lowellian (reply) 03:28, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
This article was previously located at Octavius of the Britons and was moved to this via a copy-and-paste move. I merged the edit histories at this clearly more appropriate title.--Cúchullain t/c 18:18, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
