Louis, Prince of TarantoLouis I of Naples – Three men named Louis claimed the crown of Naples: Louis I of Anjou, Louis II of Anjou and Louis III of Anjou. Louis of Taranto was, however, king both de facto and de iure. He was undisputably king of Naples, and undisputably the first one named Louis. Louis I of Anjou and Louis III of Anjou never effectively reigned, with Louis II effectively reigning for 10 years. Surtsicna (talk) 18:18, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

The biggest problem I see with this is that he is never referred to as such in sources [1] while the Angevins are. How about Louis of Taranto, King of Naples with Louis of Naples as a disambiguation page and Louis I of Naples a redirect to Louis of Naples?--The Emperor's New Spy (talk) 01:28, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
I see, but a great majority of those hits are mirrors of Wikipedia. When searching for Louis of Naples, though, most hits refer to this man. Surtsicna (talk) 06:25, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
A reluctant support, although a dab link to Louis I of Anjou explaining his claim would be helpful.--The Emperor's New Spy (talk) 07:03, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
Definitely. Surtsicna (talk) 15:28, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
It is probably worth noting that Britannica has this man under Louis (king of Naples) and Louis I of Anjou under Louis I (duke of Anjou). Surtsicna (talk) 20:59, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
