Choice of phrase[edit]

I've changed 'discovers Brazil' to 'locates Brazil', as Brazil was already discovered by its inhabitants. There are no doubt other ways of phrasing this, but I feel that this edit is a good start. Colonel Tom 04:09, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

  • On reflection, I'm no longer convinced that this edit was an improvement. Reverted. Colonel Tom 04:30, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

King of Portugal and the Algarves[edit]

The article on Afonso V says he was the 12th king of Portugal and the Algarves. The article on John II says he was the 14th king. This article says Manuel also was the 14th king. This appears to be a discrepancy, but maybe there is some simple reason for this sequence.JGC1010 (talk) 18:30, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Good catch! I checked the articles on the other kings in the line. John II is the only one that is inconsistent so I changed him to 13th. Apparently it is Beatrice, an infant, who created the problem.
