This article says next to nothing of his first 25 years of rule. Srnec 03:00, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Coronation cloak?[edit]

Does anybody have a public domain picture of this? Srnec 05:08, 21 October 2006 (UTC) The Coronation mantle pictured is from a 1893 artists rendering and is not the actual mantle. Which makes you guys look like a cheesy pretend encyclopedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Charanga1940 (talkcontribs) 12:54, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

It's not the coronation cloak of Roger II. Cf. this edit with sources. --ThT (talk) 14:45, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Coinage[edit]

Roger II tari gold coin, with Arabic inscriptions, minted in Palermo.

A Roger II tari gold coin, with Arabic inscriptions, minted in Palermo. Feel free to insert it in the article. PHG (talk) 16:09, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

University[edit]

A somewhat dubious sounding establishment - possibly even a hoax. Their website has four pages - all in Italian and not telling you anything of value. I've deleted the article about it as it was a direct translation of the website's words - copyvio, in other words. Not a lot on Google except mirrors of the same text.

I've taken it out - if anyone finds it's real, reputable and rightfully here please let me know. Peridon (talk) 17:43, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Roger II or Roger I?[edit]

Right now, Roger is listed as King Roger II of Sicily, but his father, Roger I, was only Count of Sicily. Shouldn't this Roger be listed as King Roger I of Sicily and Count Roger II of Sicily? There's something similar with the Kings of Armenian Cilicia. Take, for example, the first king, Leo. He was the tenth lord of Armenian Cilicia and the second one to have the name Leo, but he was the first King to bear the name Leo, so he's listed as both Leo II and Leo I. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.45.199.147 (talk) 21:15, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Name Origin?[edit]

Anyone know the origin of him having an English version of a German name? Seems odd for a Sicilian, no?73.220.34.167 (talk) 05:11, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Who told you he was Sicilian? Or that the name is German? Surtsicna (talk) 11:09, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
OK I stand corrected. He was Italian. Still, where is the name from? It is most certainly a German name: Rüdiger , whose English version is "Roger". Well then? 73.220.34.167 (talk) 01:05, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

In German he is called Roger, in Danish and Swedish idem. In what language is he called Rüdiger? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Campolongo (talkcontribs) 13:50, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
