May not have been told[edit]

We are told that "Mary may not have been told of every plot". If the article is going to include everything Mary might and might not have known or been told, it will get very long.

It says her 44 year reign when she was Queen for 45 years. Its minor but just looks bad. (talk) 18:34, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

44 years is closer to the actual length (44 years 4 months and 7 days) than 45 years. DrKay (talk) 18:39, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

RMS Queen Elizabeth[edit]

the ship was named after the Queen Consort to King George VI. Rjensen (talk) 07:55, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Brief conflict with Poland[edit]

The new Brief conflict with Poland section describes an ultimatum but there is no mention of an actual conflict, or indeed what the resolution or outcome was. It required some copy editing, which I have attempted but there are parts remaining in which the meaning is not clear or which are awkwardly expressed, so could probably do with some more ce. It appears to originate in the similarly- or identically-worded Brief conflict with England section at Sigismund III Vasa, which is consequently similarly affected. A point is made in regard to Sigismund's marriage but I believe this had not yet taken place. Mutt Lunker (talk) 22:25, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

If the section is to go from this article, it ought to go from Sigismund's as well presumbly. Mutt Lunker (talk) 11:12, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
I have provided other credible sources for the section. Although I agree that it is an insignificant and largely forgotten event, it should still be mentioned, even as one sentence in the foreign policy section. I will work towards rewording the section and fixing any mistakes. The section in the article Sigismund III Vasa will also be modified so that they are not the same. - Oliszydlowski (TALK) 15:42, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
A worldcat record of a primary source and a wikipedia mirror are not credible sources. Since the event is "insignificant and largely forgotten", it doesn't belong here. As with any large subject, this article is a summary of the main and most important material about Elizabeth's life: the sort of content that would be found in any biography of her. DrKay (talk) 06:53, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
I agree with DrKay: very poor sources. The RS on Elizabeth all ignore this trivial episode and so should we. Rjensen (talk) 07:01, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
