Meaning of names[edit]

A lot of the names seem to have repeating formulaic elements (Bir Bikram Shah Dev) which appear to multiply the further we move through the history of the dynasty. Presumably Shah is the same title we know from the Persian monarchy. What do the other bits mean? This would deserve an explanation. --Doric Loon (talk) 11:52, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

End of Monarchy[edit]

How are we going to treat this issue? The monarchy isn't officially abolished until April and yet the site is using the date of the recent vote in parliament. A very relevant factor here is that the current Nepali parliament isn't an elected one and the whole idea of the delay (until April) is to give the public some say on the issue in elections scheduled for April. I don't think it is appropriate to date the end of the monarchy to December as it has not been implemented as yet and the situation is still in flux. Given the unstable situation we may yet see any number of events between now and April including possible abdications (meaning at least one more king), delays in the election (it has already been delayed twice), etc. A past precedent is the end of the Italian monarchy when the king wasn't deposed until after an election was held on the question. It is not dated at the point where the legislative branch decided to hold an election on the issue. The French Revolution artice on Louis XVI goes the opposite direction and dates the end of his reign to his deposition in October 1792 rather than to his execution in January 1793. Of course, there the intent of the legislative branch was much clearer that the king was immediately dethroned than it is in the current instance. It appears, especially in light of the part of the Parliament's stipulation that it can remove the king by a 2/3 vote prior to the election if he interferes with it, that Nepal has not yet abolished its Monarchy. It has only announced an intent to do so if the newly elected body concurs in April. -- (talk) 20:22, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

I agree people are being to premature the monarchy doesn’t end until after the elections in April 2008 or as you say with 2/3 vote parliament to remove him immediately if he interferes. I think it’s fine to note that the monarchy is set to be abolished but saying that it’s set in stone that the monarchy will end in 2008 we simply cannot say for certain and as you rightly point out there are a number of events that could place between now and April. I personally think his reign should be listed as (2001-present) as this is factually correct and after the elections if parliament then declares a republic fine, then we can say the monarchy ends in April 2008 but lets wait for it to actually happen. - dwc lr (talk) 16:06, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Agreed, the monarchy hasn't been abolished yet. Things can change within four months, until then let's be patient. GoodDay (talk) 20:33, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Wrong redirected[edit]

Shah Dynasty is the dynasty of Shah king of Nepal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:55, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Nepal was ruled by Shah kings when Nepal was called as Kingdom of Nepal. So, it seems correct. ASCII-002 I NotifyOnline 10:21, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
