Untitled[edit]

"Her Stewart ancestry has been traced back to King Fergus I, a contemporary of Alexander the Great."

What rubbish. No-one of European ancestry can go back further than Charlemagne's great-great-great grandfather Armulf of Metz using contemporary sources. For more see wikipedia article on 'descent from antiquity'

According to Burke's peerage the Stewarts go back to "ALAN; Breton noble living c 1045; hereditary Steward of Dol in Britanny" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.129.233.124 (talk) 13:51, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Corrected, reference the tradition of King Fergus who is already featured in Wikipedia. jmswtlk (talk) 21:58, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

When, already?[edit]

Birth and death aside, six years are named here: 1874, 1896, 1898, 1903, 1912, 1919. In other words, in the first 56 years of this person's life, one datable event occurred.

Anybody wanna buy a tall, thin Buick?

That's a paraphrase of Bob Hope. Anybody wanna start an article about Isabella Stewart Gardner? --Jim Luedke Jimlue (talk) 03:46, 5 March 2011 (UTC)'

Her fortune[edit]

The article should address how she made her fortune or did she inherit it.

Marriage and family[edit]

Why just trash the section and not edit out the troublesome material? jmswtlk (talk) 21:09, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

The suspect material was brought in by Soissons03 in Feb 2011. Bringing back the material prior to that. jmswtlk (talk) 21:18, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
