Error in edit summary[edit]

I erred in my edit summary in accusing User:Gennarous of moving this article. My memory failed me: I thought this article had been moved from List of rulers of Sardinia, but now see that they were created separately and to avoid redundancy merged—by Gennarous. I stick by my assertion that this page is not solely about kings. Srnec (talk) 20:42, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

titles[edit]

User:Jonny Bee Goo recently moved all the articles on the Savoyard Kings of Sardinia from X of Sardinia to X of Savoy. This is contrary to our naming guideliness, expressed at WP:NCROY. We attribute monarchs to the kingdom they ruled, not the house they came from. Victor Amadeus III, say, should be at Victor Amadeus III of Sardinia because he was king of Sardinia, which was his highest title. He was, of course, also Duke of Savoy, and he came from the house of Savoy, but a) we use the highest title (we don't have the Prussian kings at "of Brandenburg" even though Brandenburg was both their house name and the territory their capital was located in); and b) we don't include house names on monarchs. Note that none of the rulers of the house of Savoy was, before JBG's actions, located at the form "X of Savoy." The dukes were at "X, Duke of Savoy," the kings of Sardinia at "X of Sardinia," and the kings of Italy at "X of Italy." I see no compelling reason why the kingdom of Sardinia should be treated any differently in this respect than the kingdom of Italy. At any rate, before any such moves are made, a consensus needs to be demonstrated for them. john k (talk) 04:43, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

See Talk:Kingdom of Sardinia (last section) for Jonny's opinion and my attempt at rebuttal. Srnec (talk) 04:53, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
Hey Srnec, saw that, and generally agree with you, but it really is only tangentially related to this issue, which is about article naming conventions. One thing worth thinking about is that the vast majority of dukes of Savoy, kings of Sardinia, and kings of Italy have what are essentially unique names; it might be worth it just to ditch the geographical designators entirely. Are there any other places that have rulers named Victor Amadeus or Charles Emmanuel? john k (talk) 13:54, 19 August 2010 (UTC)


improbable monarchs[edit]

excuse me when Mujahid al-Muwaffaq conquered sardinia, as it's written here! where are the references? i have never read any history book where is written that the saracen Mujahid al-Muwaffaq conquered sardinia, and there aren't sources in the web ! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.10.244.246 (talk) 02:31, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
