Untitled[edit]

user:David Parker thinks it is necessary to postfix all royal names with of Country and so moved this page from Oscar I. I don't agree that this is necessary. Can anybody point me to anybody else named Oscar I? My point is that names should be as short as possible as long as they are not ambiguous. --user:LA2

The question is whether to use names as short as possible, or to use a consistent naming scheme that will reduce the odds of unanticipated ambiguity. I think I favor the longer " of country" form for this reason. Wesley

See naming standards. This has already been hashed over and over. --rmhermen

sources on illegitimate children[edit]

Could someone provide sources on the names and existence of Oscar's supposed illegitimate children? john k 01:19, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Father name[edit]

I think there needs to be mention in the introductory paragraph that Charles XIV John and Marshal Bernadotte are indeed the same person. Otherwise it confuses the narrative. 166.82.48.137 (talk) 08:22, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Union of Denmark, Norway and Sweden[edit]

"As early as 1850 Oscar I had conceived the plan of a dynastic union of the three Scandinavian kingdoms, but such difficulties presented themselves that the scheme had to be abandoned."

What kind of a plan was that? Surtsicna (talk) 15:25, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Just looking at the words, the answer to your specific question seems clear: a "plan of a dynastic union of the three Scandinavian kingdoms". This is a well known fact, to those who know him, but I am adding a source to the text now. Thank you for bringing attention to this unsourced item! SergeWoodzing (talk) 17:54, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
I see no clear answer in that sentence. What did the author mean by "dynastic union"? Did Oscar want to create some sort of a personal union between the kingdoms? If so, how did he plan to do it? Surtsicna (talk) 17:58, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I do not understand what you are questioning. He wanted to create a dynastic union. Do you mean that that should be deleted from the article because there is no further explanation of the details of the plan? SergeWoodzing (talk) 18:02, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
PS If you mean it would be nice to have more info on this in the article, I agree. I'm sorry I have none to add right now. SergeWoodzing (talk) 18:11, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Ancestry[edit]

Rather than deleting just removing his ancestry from the article, so that it will get lost eventually, I am moving it here for future reference, in case anyone is especally interested in it or finds anything notable there.

Once something is added to Wikipedia, it can only be deleted if an administrator removes it from the page history. I doubt an administrator would do it in this case. Surtsicna (talk) 18:14, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for using "deleted" then! Maybe you actually know I meant?: lost to us in hard-to-investigate edit summaries. If you know a way of finding things that have been removed from article texts, and never have been discussed on article talk pages, without taking hours and hours to rummage through edit histories - please let me know. I have never figured out how to do it. SergeWoodzing (talk) 18:50, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
Isn't it possible to make collapsable? I think I have seen that on other pages. walk victor falk talk 03:55, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Seems so, yes. I don't know how though. SergeWoodzing (talk) 13:01, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Making it collapsable doesn't make it useful. Otherwise we could throw in all sorts of trivial information and justify it by making the section collapsable. Surtsicna (talk) 14:04, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
