I oppose this move. Since the proper spelling of the country is disambiguated from the province (this article) there is no need to disambiguate them further. I have simplified the dab header to get readers to the country faster. Septentrionalis 17:52, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
Neutral/Weak oppose. I think the current disambiguation header is good enough. --EAsterionu talking to me? 19:17, 4 September 2006 (UTC)
The only justification for such a move would be if vast numbers of readers were looking for the country and no-one much were looking for the province. I see no reason to believe this. (If we do move, the target should be Mauretania (province).) Septentrionalis 17:52, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Where were Mauretanian capital before the country has been splited? What was its name?
Romano-Byzantine rule survived in Algeria during Vandal occupations?
One of my most respected sources, Bruce Gordan's Regnal Chrononlogies, makes a mention in his entry for the city of Constantine in north Africa. And Euratlas' maps of Europe in 500 AD and 600 AD both show a "Kingdom of the Romans and Moors in Algeria, not under Vandal control.
They also show a distinct "Mauri" kingdom in Morrocco.
Would it be plausible to then say that part of the Western Empire survived the fall of Nepos and Syagrius? I unfortunately don't yet have more information, and wanted to bring it to your mutual attentions. It would make a very interesting note in this and a few other articles...
