Translation of titles[edit]

not sure about the translation of landgraf - would duke not be a better translation than landgrave? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Halcyonicity (talkcontribs)

No. Landgraf is landgrave in English. Duke is Herzog. Charles 16:22, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

rename article into House of Wettin?[edit]

Shouldn't this article be renamed into House of Wettin in order to be in compliance with other royal houses such as House of Windsor and House of Bourbon, as well as the categories? Gryffindor 08:48, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Oppose. House of Windsor disambiguates from Windsor Castle, Windsor, Ontario usw; similarly for Bourbon. The dynasty here is clearly the primary usage; we don't even have an article on the eponymous castle, or the brook. Let's keep things simple, and avoid masking links.

For the rest, I propose condensing this discussion on Talk:Wittelsbach, where it seems to have started. Septentrionalis 22:31, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Earlier history[edit]

Found on http://www.gurganus.org/ourfamily/browse.cfm?fid=5112. That this house might have been founded earlier. With 4 generations predating 900's. Ryanburgess (talk) 13:50, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

English pronunciation[edit]

Cadet branches[edit]

right now it only lists extant cadet branches in the table, should we add the rest, and how should we do it? Tinynanorobots (talk) 19:36, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
