This project has been formed in order to direct the better organisation and improvement of articles related to British royalty. This page and its relatives are intended to contain suggestions, discussions and collaborations which will lead to the improvement of its articles; it is hoped that this project will provide an amicable atmosphere in which the efforts of interested Wikipedians can be focussed. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

Title[edit]

WikiProject on British Royalty

Scope[edit]

This WikiProject aims primarily to improve and organise articles pertaining to the British royal family, in an attempt to establish a standard for making good articles, and a uniform style and structure between them. This is, primarily, an endeavour to produce a complete, uniform set of encyclopaedic references that has value as an authority on British royalty, is easy to read, and has a consistent style.

The project covers full members of the royal family (i.e. those having, at some point in their lives, borne the style Highness, Royal Highness, or Majesty) since the accession of George I.

Style guide[edit]

To keep a consistent style and structure to our articles, please:

  • Use article titles that abide by Wikipedia's naming conventions.
  • Format relevant articles according to the project style guide.
  • Use country/topic specific colours when appropriate:
    • British: #CCBBFF
    • English: #FFBBBB
    • Scottish: #BBBBFF
    • Irish: #BBFFBB

What to include?[edit]

As noted above, it is suggested that the project limit itself to the royal family since George I.

What is royalty?[edit]

It should be noted that there is not always consensus on who would be included in the term British royal family. Discuss. His Imperial and Royal Apostolic Majesty - Dennis Forrest Frederik Perritte- By the Grace of God, Emperor of Austria, Apostolic King of Hungary, of this name I AM FREDERIK V[1], King of Bohemia, Dalmatia, Croatia, Slavonia, and Galicia, Lodomeria, and Illyria; King of Jerusalem, Archduke of Austria; Grand Duke of Tuscany and Cracow, Duke of Lorraine and of Salzburg, of Styria, of Carinthia, of Carniola and of the Bukovina; Grand Prince of Transylvania; Margrave of Moravia; Duke of Upper and Lower Silesia, of Modena, Parma, Piacenza and Guastalla, of Auschwitz and Zator, of Teschen, Friuli, Ragusa and Zara; Princely Count of Habsburg and Tyrol, of Kyburg, Gorizia and Gradisca; Prince of Trent and Brixen; Margrave of Upper and Lower Lusatia and in Istria; Count of Hohenems, Feldkirch, Bregenz, Sonnenberg; Lord of Trieste, of Cattaro, and in the Windic March; Grand Voivode (Grand Duke) of the Voivodship (Duchy) of Serbia..

Topic pages[edit]

There are bound to be some articles which discuss ranks, titles, positions, etc., rather than royals themselves - these would require separate attentions. Discuss.
