Marcelle Dormoy[edit]

In view of your interest in the article on Marcelle Dormoy you may be interested in my note about her at (a site about the book Royal Mistresses and Bastards: Fact and Fiction: 1714-1936). Scroll down to page 393 and you will find a page about her grandson's claims. AnthonyCamp (talk) 10:15, 2 March 2019 (UTC).

AnthonyCamp - thanks for that! Very interesting. I'm not sure how much of it is admissible for references if it's your own original research which has not yet been published, but it is REALLY interesting stuff. Do you have a reference for Dormoy dying in 1981? The source I found from the auction house selling off her portrait stated that she died in 1976 rather than 1981, but you've found another source to suggest she lived to 1981?

Thank you for your very kind comments. The year 1981 appeared on the genealogical table at (un-numbered) page 11 of L'homme qui aurait du etre Roi and as it differed from that in Wikipedia (which gave 1976) I asked Francois Graftieaux and he replied on 24 September 2019, 'My grandmother died on September 9th 1981 in Pau, France'. I am sorry that I have no other evidence on the point. AnthonyCamp (talk) 09:34, 5 March 2019 (UTC).

Please see WP:OVERLINK - in short, no need to link to countries etc. GiantSnowman 16:29, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Giant Thanks, but it just happens automatically when adding the flag to the headers. Someone started adding them to the page, so I'm just adding it in as I go - and definitely, in some cases, places like Togo (which I didn't even know existed until yesterday) should be linked, surely?
