The result of the debate was no move. -- tariqabjotu 23:49, 2 November 2006 (UTC) In order to be compliant with the naming of royal houses, such as the House of Windsor. Gryffindor 08:54, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

I urge caution. Windsor is currently reigning; in this case the "House of .." is necessary for disambiguation purposes. How important does a family have to be in order to be "House of ..."? Is Hohenlohe important enough? How about Rothschild or Hearne? Noel S McFerran 10:16, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
For an important royal dynasty such as the Wittelsbachs, I would support this renaming. Charles 16:13, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Oppose. House of Windsor disambiguates from Windsor Castle, Windsor, Ontario usw. 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. Septentrionalis 22:23, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
Oppose. As per Septentrionalis. Also, whether a dynasty is currently reigning or not seems to be good enough of a criterion. Blur4760 20:25, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Move[edit]

Has there been a dynasty guideline change for this article's move from Wittelsbach to House of Wittelsbach? While I personally have no objection to the move, the above move request was fairly recent. Additionally, I have not found any mention yet of the town of Wittelsbach; the German WP has an article on de:Burg Wittelsbach, however. Olessi 16:36, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

There have been a number of moves to include "House" in the names of dynasties. I have initiated a few of them, others have moved other ones. A number of the moves have been from terms containing "dynasty" to ones containing "house" and others have been moved from the bare house name. Wittelsbach itself is only a name. This is an article about the House of that name. It makes sense to me to have it here. In fact, I would not have even put it up for the Nov 2006 RM. Charles 16:45, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
I would say that Wittelsbach should redirect here then. Olessi 18:47, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
It should. I have no idea who changed it away from redirecting here. Charles 20:24, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
