Son of prophecy[edit]

Does anyone know what the "claimants to the Son of Prophecy" list is all about? I can't tell who any of them are apart from Henry VII. Certainly they're not "rulers" of Wales. Deb 17:32, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Further to the above, as no one has responded and I can't find any reference to these people, I have deleted the section. Deb 00:01, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

High King of Britain / High King of Wales etc[edit]

There are big problems with these sections - many of those listed can by no stretch of the imagination be described as "High King of Britain". There is a great deal of doubt whether some of the earlier names are actually historical figures, and even if they are there is no evidence for giving precise dates for their reigns - Arthur for example. Can anyone give a source for this material? Rhion 11:32, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

I have never ever seen any source material reference a "High King of Britain" or "High King of Wales", this artical is rife with inaccurcies. Additionally, no reference material is presented. I shall myself work on corrections with source material as soon as possible.Drachenfyre 08:57, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
Good for you! Deb 11:40, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
It was all added by an anon BT user. The last good, i.e. non-Arthurian/Matter of Britain, version is by User:Rhion in December. I've reverted to that one. Angus McLellan 16:08, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Hywel Dda vs. Howell the Good[edit]

In my experience, the form Howell the Good is extremely uncommon, and Hywel Dda is more usual in English even than Hywel the Good. That is also the title of the Wikipedia page relating to him, so it seems reasonable to have this form here.

High King of Wales[edit]

I have tagged the above article to be merged here. Can someone who knows about these things make the necessary changes? Thanks, ::Supergolden:: 14:08, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

The "High King of Wales" article is a mixture of mythology from Geoffrey of Monmouth and (largely wrong) history. The same content was put into this article and later removed (see the discussion above). I would suggest getting rid of it. Rhion 14:41, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
Difficult to decide whether to just nominate it for deletion. How much of it is actually worth knowing? Deb 16:43, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
I have put it up for deletion. Rhion 08:24, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
