Country of birth[edit]

In the infobox, shouldn't the place of her birth be given as "Moravia" or "Austro-Hungarian Empire" or something rather than "Czech Republic"—a nation that didn't exist at the time of her birth? Deor (talk) 01:28, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it should, and it should be changed within the article, I just didn't bother, because I wanted to fact check it first, then got a little side-tracked. Thanks for correcting the image. --Blechnic (talk) 01:30, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure myself which region Třebovice was in at the time, Moravia or Silesia. Deor (talk) 01:39, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Oops, I see that the original version of the article specified Chropyně as the place of her birth, which was definitely in Moravia. Deor (talk) 01:43, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
I have to bow to you on the Czech/Bohemina/Moravian geography, unfortunately she was apparently known as "Czech." However you decide to handle it, I'm fine with it. Please do change it, though, to accurately reflect where she was born, at least. --Blechnic (talk) 02:02, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Place of Death edits[edit]

Neilsaage, please stop removing the citation backing up her place of death, and replacing it with a link to the graveyard where she was buried. Her place of burial is useful information, but it doesn't belong in the place of death section, and the inline citation ought to be kept in regardless. Cheers, ZX95 (talk) 05:44, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

I am having a hard time following all this, but feel that the article should include her place of burial AND any inline citation. We can have it all. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 05:59, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
It looks like this is about what has been done now. All's well that ends well, I suppose. ZX95 (talk) 13:54, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
On aside note, what is the difference between, "All's well that ends well" and "The end justifies the means"? Carptrash (talk) 21:26, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Now that you mention it, I realize that their literal meanings are almost identical, but their connotations are very different; "The ends justifies the means" is usually used as a cynical justification for seemingly immoral behavior, while "All's well that ends well" is usually intended more as something like "It all worked out in the end", an expression of satisfaction with an outcome after the fact. :) ZX95 (talk) 04:06, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
