Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor[edit]

In Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor the red link to House of Luxembourg was removed. It led to nowhere. Could someone expand a little bit this History of Luxembourg not to have Charles IV featuring there as the first named person ? Well, after Sigefroid... Radoneme 18:43, 7 Dec 2004 (UTC)

The First House of Luxembourg, to which Charles IV belonged, was extint at some point in history. After several centuries of domination by other countries a new House of Luxembourg was created a lot later. knut

Independence on 1867 May 11 ? What happened ?[edit]

Ii says on the Luxembourg page that independence was achieved on 1867 May 11 but there is no information on this on the History of Luxembourg page. What happened ? The Treaty of London, 1867 was signed ? -- PFHLai 17:03, 2005 May 9 (UTC)

language issues[edit]

Part of the current article is difficult to understand. It either is a translation issue, or it is due to the author's level of english (I'm also ESL, so not best placed to do the corrections). Anyhow, I've started editing the article in the hope of making it clearer. Unfortunatelly I don't know all the details involved, so in many cases I can only change the sentences, not correct what appear to be historic errors. If the original author is still about could he please help out a bit. For one thing I think the article should not talk about such and such state doing something when it's in fact that state's sovereign's action. Also general terms like the prussian heir can be very confusing (why not give his name and the name of the dynasty (well here I know it would be a Hohenzollern, but others are not as obvious) etc.

Anyhow, I plan to look at the article section by section in the coming days and try to raise it's standard a bit. Whenever I know more about the historic situation I will add or correct the article as well (as in the belgian revolution, mentionning that the dutch governor retreated into the fortress under prussian protection might be too much detail, but mentionning that the fortress and vicinity remained under dutch control was a necessary correction). This is my first day at english language Wikipedia (and one of my first months editing wikipedia at all though I've been using a while longer). So any help would be welcome, I also don't wish to thread on anyones feet or start an edit-war.

Seems it took me over three months to start this and I don't really have the courage to dig into those sections (mid 14th through late 19th century). I think it requires a complete rewrite. Right now it's entirely focused on inheritance, lacking important wikilinks etc. I really wonder whether anyone currently bothers to read those sections.--Caranorn 22:45, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.historyofnations.net/europe/luxembourg.html
    Triggered by \bhistoryofnations\.net\b on the local blacklist
