Untitled[edit]

Pedro I el Cruel was king of Castile, not of Spain, which not existed as an unified kingdon until the final decades of XV century

Galicia[edit]

Check Talk:List of titles and honours of the Portuguese Crown#Galicia. Ferdinand was proclaimed King of Castile by the Galician nobles, not King of a separate independent Galicia. At the best he is an anti-King similar to Rene of Anjou or Peter of Coimbra in Aragon. Another point to bring up again is Galicia is not mentioned in this article at all. What is the point of putting it on the succession boxes and info boxes something that isn't mentioned at all in the entire article of the text. --The Emperor's New Spy (talk) 20:17, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Names[edit]

Frankly, the article needs a lot of work that I am not about to touch. I learned from another page the strong feelings the Britons in the Royalty subgroup have about translating them into English, per the imperial practice, though I think the practice disrespectul in this era. Clearly, the Spanish and Portuguese have different viewpoints about the historical figures of this era, and are politely keeping them to themselves.Jweaver28 (talk) 12:09, 4 July 2013 (UTC)
