From Issa?![edit]

The reference shows just a description of Issa. Is Issa her birthplace? The mentione of here name in relation with Issa is only at the moment that she met roman envoys while she was besieging Issa [1] [2]. All the sources refere to her as simple Queen Teuta Aigest (talk) 13:38, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Teuta of Illyria/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Reviewer: Claritas § 19:47, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    The only issues here is the statement that "She was not really called Queen by Appian", which is both too casual and unclear, and some comma/punctuation issues which can be sorted out by a quick copy/edit. Put citations after punctuation, not before.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    No issues here, I think it is very well sourced.
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    I think it's generally good, but I think some more biographical detail might be required - are approximate dates of birth/death recorded ? What happened to Illyria after her rule was "dismembered" ? It didn't become a Roman Province until 165 B.C.E. Who succeeded her ?
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
    No issues here.
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    This is picky, but I think you might want a more explanatory caption for the map of the Illryian wars - "A map showing...." maybe ?
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    I'm going to put this on hold pending improvements to the article. Good work so far ! Claritas § 19:47, 30 June 2010 (UTC)


  • 1st wave of tweaking in accordance with the upper criteria - done! Er-vet-en (say) 06:58, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
  • I've done some style editing myself, and, considering the obscurity of the topic and what little information is available, I think this meets WP:GAC. Claritas § 19:26, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Updating the page : Important[edit]

I Serbiakos want to edit this page. Everything will be the same as it was but now it will be more informative and updated and with more detail. Check my other pages I edited. e.g: Gentius, Bardyllis, Glaukias, Monunius of Dardania etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Serbiakos (talkcontribs) 12:04, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Reversion to copyvio version[edit]

I've just reverted to version 430763610 dated 25 May 2011 having taken advice from the copyvio experts. That version was GA. New material was introduced on 5 June 2011 and survived a minor edit war. It contains at least some copy-paste from Wilkes. I can't find out how much, as Wilkes is no-preview on the net, but some, and the account that introduced the copyvio is an indef-blocked sock of an account that is also indef-blocked -- for copyvio. I apologise to editors whose good work may have been overridden by this action, but it seemed the only clear way to get rid of copyvio. --Stfg (talk) 16:37, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Follow-up note: Copyvio revisions have been removed from history after being reinserted (and the editor[s] have a history of reinserting such content). — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:43, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Direct involvement[edit]

Was Teuta directly involved in the piracy, or was she merely waging it from a distance? Asarelah (talk) 16:31, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Teuta of IllyriaTeuta – The most appropriate article name would be simply Teuta, as per common name. "Teuta of Illyria" is very scarcely used in sources. She was never the ruler of Illyria (and never titled as such). In reality, she ruled parts of Illyria, and was the queen of the Ardiaei. Gbooks hits (-llc -wiki): "Teuta of Illyria"-51, "Teuta, queen"-322, "Queen Teuta"-397. Zoupan 03:23, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

I disagree with you as per common name and other naming guidelines. She is the Teuta. You bring up German wikipedia, but not the rest, which all use "Teuta". A hatnote should be added to this article - Teuta (disambiguation).--Zoupan 15:05, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Teuta, as per common name, or else Teuta (queen).--Zoupan 02:50, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
