Margaret of Bohemia, Queen of HungaryMargaret of Luxembourg — Queen Margaret of Hungary was an agnatic descendant of the Counts of Luxembourg and belonged to the House of Luxembourg, whose members are commonly known as "X of Luxembourg" (cf. Sigismund of Luxembourg, Elizabeth of Luxembourg, etc). Other Wikipedias call her Margaret of Luxembourg in their respective languages. "Margaret of Luxembourg" is more concise and more consistent with articles about her relatives. Surtsicna (talk) 13:03, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

It's true it might fit better but the Counts of Luxembourg had no power over Bohemia were as Margaret's father and grandfather did. Bohemian princess from the royal families before the House of Luxembourg are listed as of Bohemia so why should Margaret and her siblings be different just because there from the House of Luxembourg?--David (talk) 15:36, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
I should also point out there was Margaret's aunts Margaret of Bohemia, Duchess of Bavaria,Bonne of Bohemia and Anne of Bohemia (1323–1338), plus there's also Margaret's sisters Catherine of Bohemia, Elisabeth of Bohemia (1358–1373), Anne of Bohemia (King Richard II's wife who is always referred to as this) and Margaret of Bohemia, Burgravine of Nuremberg--David (talk) 15:44, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

I should point out that you have to go back to her great-great-grandfather to find an actual Count of Luxembourg. Angnatic descent isn't everything. PatGallacher (talk) 19:03, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

It depends on what you mean by "actual Count of Luxembourg". Her father was Count of Luxembourg. So were her grandfather and great-grandfather. Surtsicna (talk) 20:30, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
Looked into this further, her great-great-grandfather was the most recent who was primarily Count of Luxembourg. Her father and great-grandfather were primarily Holy Roman Emperor, and her grandfather was primarily king of Bohemia. PatGallacher (talk) 00:24, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose Although admittedly "Margaret of Luxembourg" does redirect here at present, can we be sure that she is the only person who might be known by this name? Although most other Wikipedias have her at Margaret of Luxembourg or something similar, the Swedish has her at Margaret of Bohemia, and some of them may have been copying the English wikipedia when it was at this title.

  • Oppose per Daaviiid. As David has pointed out if you change one you'll have to change all of the childrens of Luxembourg Kings of Bohemia, and most of them are known more better as of Bohemia. I think it should stay Margaret of Bohemia because it is the highest title.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 22:35, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
Surtsicna, Margaret's article is going to need expanding, since you've done such great improvements to King Louis' second wife Elisabeth of Bosnia, maybe you can find more info on Margaret, I will look myself--David (talk) 17:19, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
