Highly incomplete!

This template is Highly incomplete! I shall try to expand some. The Ogre (talk) 13:23, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

I know! I just started it in the hope that someone else would finish it. Thanks a lot. Mark J (talk) 16:27, 13 December 2007 (UTC)


Is this template a listing or origins or places ruled? If one is going to list "Saxe-Coburg and Gotha" under Germany, which they never ruled, and not list Wettin, where are the hundreds of other royal and nobles houses? Charles 18:50, 10 February 2008 (UTC)


And Spain (and predecessors) is . . ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:24, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Same for Sweden. The template uses the general tabulating Template:navbox which serves up to 20 entries. The royal houses of Spain and Sweden are entered into the "Royal houses of Europe" template, but the Navbox template doesn't serve them. Since Navbox is locked, I consider cloning it.

Alphabetic or chronological order?

Should the houses be added in alphabetic or in chronological order? Demophon (talk) 09:50, 2 August 2008 (UTC)


As this is related to the disputed French reign of Henry VI of England, it should IMHO be removed from the 'France' section. GoodDay (talk) 16:10, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Irish royal houses

I realize that some may be viewing the list of Irish royal houses with concern, but the vast corpus of annals and genealogical and legendary material allow us to go back quite far into Ireland's 'Golden Age' (400-950) and even before.

Another concern might be the divisions I have introduced between the Goidel, Briton, and Foreigners. This is however an accurate simplification of the divisions expressed in the corpus. DinDraithou (talk) 23:48, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Romanian houses?

Shouldn't the House of Basarab, House of Drăculeşti and the House of Bogdan-Muşat be included? Semi-Lobster (talk) 16:34, 13 March 2010 (UTC)


Why is "Stuart" spelled differently for Scotland than elsewhere? -- AnonMoos (talk) 20:37, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Windsor and the future.

What will the house of Windsow become known as when Charles ascends to the throne. (I'm thinking of Edward VII's dynastic name here)1812ahill (talk) 04:41, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

St Olaf / Gorm

Hi. The template was edited to add the houses / dynasties of Gorm and St Olaf but both were redlinks. I have fixed both links so they point to their respective houses in their respective monarchy lists but have kept the old links within hidden tags ( <!-- ) so that they can be brought back if the aim was to create new pages for these houses. Apologies if I've created problems or anyone. Stalwart111 (talk) 23:22, 16 August 2012 (UTC).
