Merge with Württemberg?[edit]

This article needs to be merged with the article Württemberg because they both cover the same material and time period - until 1918. Both are fair to good articles and would be a very good article if merged.--TGC55 (talk) 02:09, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Missing Britannica 1911 tag?[edit]

The rather farcically stilted language of this article very strongly suggests that it began as a (legal) copy-paste of the 1911 Britannica article on the topic, yet it does not bear the typical tag for this. (PS: Yes, I am intentionally mocking B'11 with the phrase "rather farcically stilted".) — SMcCandlish [talk] [cont] ‹(-¿-)› 08:40, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

The Württemberg article is entirely copied from the Encyclopædia Britannica entry, which was made specifically for the Kingdom of Württemberg status in 1911. There's no reason to put info about a specifically year in a article that period covers more then 900 years of history. And for the others periods of Württemberg history there are plenty of articles, as History of Württemberg, County of Württemberg, Duchy of Württemberg, Electorate of Württemberg and Free People's State of Württemberg.-Ilhador- (talk) 17:24, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

No one appears, so I will do the move.-Ilhador- (talk) 16:41, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Copyedit[edit]

Upon request, hit this. Comments:

  • The history section is overly focused on royalty and constitutional matters. What else happened? At the same time, the constitutionl changes aren't really discussed.
  • Where are the footnotes?
  • Added some expand and clarify tags
  • I'd delete the stuff about the modern economy (e.g., wine output) and focus on the place at the time. You wouldn't write about current retsina production in an article on ancient Greece...

I didn't check, but i bet 99% of this article came from the Britannica. Jack Bufalo Head (talk) 23:08, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
