Good job to whoever add much of the information, however I feel there should be an article List of viceroys of Naples for the viceroys as they weren't actually Kings... I'll put them here on the talk if anyone wants to create such an article. - Gennarous (talk) 15:33, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

A few nitpicks[edit]

A couple of issues:

  1. Shouldn't Philip V be listed as a proper king? He was recognized as King in 1700, and remained in authority until 1707, at least. Between 1707 and 1713, it's arguable that he was de jure king and Charles de facto, until the Treaty of Utrecht, but he was surely king up to 1707, wasn't he?
  2. Should we really list the short-lived "Neapolitan Republic" here as a definitive break in Philip III/IV's reign? If so, why don't we list Charles VIII's brief rule in 1495-1496? john k (talk) 03:38, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

King consorts[edit]

Are these five men king consorts or jure uxoris kings? Do they deserve a spot on this list?

I suppose it's never too late. This book explains that Louis was the only one of Joanna I's husbands who reigned alongside her. The other three were also styled as kings, but were officially excluded from the government and their names did not appear next to Joanna's on coins and documents. In other words, Andrew, James and Otto were kings consort. I am not sure about James, though. I'll look him up later. Surtsicna (talk) 15:58, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
