The Red Baby[edit]

Could someone explain the symbols on the coat-of-arms, in particular the red baby? Risssa (talk) 01:20, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Joanna of Austria[edit]

There are two women known as "Joanna of Austria." Someone should set up the link to lead to the right one (this is in the family tree). Risssa (talk) 23:18, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Sforza family tree[edit]

This section was dominated by a lengthy branch detailing the descent to Diana, Princess of Wales and her sons, which unbalanced the focus. I believe Charles II of England would be a better node to stop at. The king has many other notable descendants (and I do mean many), which is aptly explored in the Descendants of Charles II of England article. Further, Charles II is quite more notable than any of his descendants, and is the start of that line's removal from its continental origin and its taking new root in Britain.

The cut portion (with scaled-down bullets) spanning 11 generations, which would be more suitable to an 'Ancestry of Diana, Princess of Wales' discussion (and is already covered in Ancestry charts of the current British Royal Family), is copied below.
