Untitled[edit]

I'm currently translating this article into French and I noticed that the link on "Edwin of Deira" can not be correct since this Edwin died three century before this battle. March 18, 2005, 16:48 (CET). fr:Utilisateur:Poulos

Natural consistency[edit]

Wouldn't it be best to have all the items in a natural list titled in some consistent way? If "of Scotland" is needed disambiguation for all the other Scottish kings, wouldn't Indulf fit in better if he were titled the same way?

Louis IX is unambiguous. So is Philip Augustus. We keep the "of France" in both because it creates a much more consistent scheme for the natural list of French monarchs. We don't need across-the-board consistency, but within lines of succession it would be nice (for the reader). Srnec (talk) 00:09, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

It's not actually needed for disambiguation. Other than the four Constantines and Amlaíb, the first Scottish or Pictish monarch to need a dab is Edgar. If I recall on WP:NCNT, there was theoretical agreement that these monarchs were like Lithuanian monarchs. Indulf is particularly special because it is a late medieval manuscript corruption, and no-one, not even Indulf himself, ever bore the name (which is etymologically meaningless).
