Survey[edit]

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the debate was No Move. Yanksox 17:45, 9 September 2006 (UTC) I add this request from WP:RM, which suggests that Mauretania redirect to Mauritania, and this article be moved to Historical Mauretania or Mauretania (historical) or some such. Septentrionalis 17:52, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I oppose this move. Since the proper spelling of the country is disambiguated from the province (this article) there is no need to disambiguate them further. I have simplified the dab header to get readers to the country faster. Septentrionalis 17:52, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Neutral/Weak oppose. I think the current disambiguation header is good enough. --E Asterion u talking to me? 19:17, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

The only justification for such a move would be if vast numbers of readers were looking for the country and no-one much were looking for the province. I see no reason to believe this. (If we do move, the target should be Mauretania (province).) Septentrionalis 17:52, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Location[edit]

Where exactly would Mauretania be, when compared to a modern map of North Africa?

Northern Morocco through to Tunisia.

Off Topic Question[edit]

However, would anyone happen to recall what the most typical Roman term for the North African Sahara was?

Africa. UnDeadGoat 01:08, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Gaetulia. Still used in Linnaen system of classification: getulensis for anything coming from the Sahara. Africa was only the part containing Tunisia. MisterCDE 00:59, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Capital[edit]

Where were Mauretanian capital before the country has been splited? What was its name?

Romano-Byzantine rule survived in Algeria during Vandal occupations?[edit]

One of my most respected sources, Bruce Gordan's Regnal Chrononlogies, makes a mention in his entry for the city of Constantine in north Africa. And Euratlas' maps of Europe in 500 AD and 600 AD both show a "Kingdom of the Romans and Moors in Algeria, not under Vandal control.

They also show a distinct "Mauri" kingdom in Morrocco.

Would it be plausible to then say that part of the Western Empire survived the fall of Nepos and Syagrius? I unfortunately don't yet have more information, and wanted to bring it to your mutual attentions. It would make a very interesting note in this and a few other articles...
