Wanted to add to family tree[edit]

I noted that Henrietta_Maria_of_France which exists on wikipedia is the daughter of Marie de' Medici (1573 – 1642), wife of Henry IV of France, so I wanted to add that into the family tree, so immediately exposing the fact the the Medici penetrated English Royal Family. So by modern Genetic Standards A Medici became the King of England!!

Requested move of several article titles[edit]

Hello. I have undertaken a requested move proposal for the article titles of some of the members of the Medici family. I have focused on ten of them (most of which use dates as disambiguation), proposing more conventional naming disambigation that avoids dates. The RM and discussion is to proceed at Talk: Lorenzo de' Medici (1463–1503)#Requested move. Editors interested in the Medici should visit that discussion and voice their opinion on the proposed changes. Thank you. Walrasiad (talk) 11:25, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Deletion reference to persection of jews[edit]

Evidence of persecution is highly speculative and is not relevant to the subject matter.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.241.11.51 (talkcontribs)

I fail to see how this is "not relevant to the subject matter". Can you explain? Also, can you provide a source to support your claim that "evidence of persecution is highly speculative"? The given reference, Acton's book The Last Medici is pretty clear: "[Cosimo]'s theological humour found another vent in persecuting the Jews." (p. 140) GabrielF (talk) 16:26, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

There are many pages relating to Jewish persecution on wikipedia, none referencing the issue nor history considering it a persecution of jews,researching the Medici should not provide route to the issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.241.11.51 (talk) 15:54, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Referencing The Jews[edit]

I do not like references to Jews in this page. I think it detracts from the subject matter and belongs in a seperate article relating to neurosis of the Jews. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.241.11.51 (talk) 18:14, 11 May 2013 (UTC) What "neurosis of the Jews." There was plenty of persecution going on of themEricl (talk) 02:11, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
