Infobox image caption[edit]

Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Captions says that captions should be succinct. The shorter version is only two lines of text, the new longer one wraps over three and repeats information that is already given in the infobox. Celia Homeford (talk) 14:26, 15 March 2017 (UTC)


References consist of short and long citation. Splitting the long and shot citations with a "sources" is not desirable or necessary.

If anyone finds it confusing then I suggest moving the short citations into the notes section as they are short citations in footnotes (notes).

Charles II of England

Charles II of England (1630–1685) was king of England, Scotland and Ireland. He was king of Scotland from 1649 from his father's execution until being deposed by Oliver Cromwell in 1651, and king of England, Scotland and Ireland from the restoration of the monarchy in 1660 until his death. Internationally, Charles became involved in the Second and Third Anglo-Dutch Wars. Domestically, Charles attempted to introduce religious freedom for Catholics and Protestant dissenters with his 1672 Royal Declaration of Indulgence, but the English Parliament forced him to withdraw it.
