Maria Komnene (d. 1190)Maria Komnene, Queen of Hungary — The guideline does not prohibit using marital titles to distinguish between namesakes. Gryffindor is aware (or should be aware) of several similar discussions that have taken place - they have all resulted in moving X of Y (xxxx-yyyy) to X of Y, Queen of Z because such disambugation is much more useful. Is this woman notable for being a queen or for having died in 1190? Is she better known as Maria Komnene, Queen of Hungary or as Maria Komnene who died in 1190?

We need some sort of disambiguation. However, putting the year of death in the article title is not the best way to do it. When going through categories or disambiguation pages, it is much easier to realize that Maria Komnene, Queen of Hungary, is the Maria Komnene you're looking for.

Support move, the proposed name is both better as a description and uses her most eminent characteristic for disambiguation... Constantine 18:37, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Support, but it should be Comnena, as in the Britannica - the only English source for this article. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 17:51, 15 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh come on, let's not re-raise the whole ODB issue again... If every other Komnenian article uses the "Komnenos/Komnene" form, it would be silly to make an exception for this one. Its not as if the form is unknown in English literature ([1]) Constantine 07:54, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Can we solve the disambiguation problem first and deal with the spelling later, since the spelling affects more articles? Surtsicna (talk) 13:20, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Support, dates are again an inferior method of disambiguation (the spelling can be decided in a separate discussion).--Kotniski (talk) 11:02, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
Support. Much clearer and a convention commonly used in the literature. --Bermicourt (talk) 16:55, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
