Old talk[edit]

Deleted the name Theodore/Theodorean/Theodore's in the last paragraph and replaced it for the original name as mentioned in the first paragraph: Feodore--Ameer 13:59, May 22, 2005 (UTC)

Here is the EB1911 article for all three Theodore of Russia. John Vandenberg (talk) 11:24, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Russian History Articles Have to be Rewritten to Meet Minimum English Standards[edit]

  • This article and nearly all of the other articles on Russian History are so poorly written, they are for the most part unreadable and certainly undecipherable. A real effort needs to be made to bring these articles up to par. I would make corrections here, but I can't even discern what the author is trying to say or intends to say. I really cannot tell. I have just a basic collegiate background in Russian History but it certainly is not enough to understand the machinations of the contributors... Stevenmitchell (talk) 18:13, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Horribly disfigured?[edit]

"horribly disfigured and half paralyzed by a mysterious disease, supposed to be scurvy, he had been a hopeless invalid from the day of his birth."

(1) The accompanying picture does not show a "horribly disfigured" individual. (2) Which was it--caused by a disease, or from the day of his birth? LarryJeff (talk) 18:33, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Painters in the old days generally prettied up their subjects. Also, although it isn't likely that his disease was scurvy (that isn't a congenital condition), the article says that he was "believed to' have scurvy - we aren't making a medical diagnosis, we're simply repeating what reliable third parties say. There are so many congenital conditions (and not all hereditary - cerebral palsy and amniotic bands come to mind as non-hereditary congenital conditions) that can cause some amount of disfigurement that there's no way to know. --NellieBly (talk) 00:31, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
