Edward IV's Issues infobar[edit]

Is it just me or is the issues section in Edward IV's infobox jumbled up? It's not even chronological, if whoever did it did so for the purposes of highlighting historically important children of Edward IV. Should it be fixed? Yourlocallordandsavior (talk) 06:13, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

For major/radical/unpopular changes, please use the talk page[edit]

Hello, just want to reiterate to people to try and use the talk page if they have any revisions they think that might be controversial or challenged. It can be a little annoying when some people try to make really big changes to the pages, especially those without much thinking behind it, and other editors having to revert these silly changes. Just a precaution so that it can ease some of the burdens other editors have to deal with, which can take quite a bit of hours to do, when those initial edits just took seconds or minutes to make. Thanks. Yourlocallordandsavior (talk) 03:12, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

Family tree table[edit]

I believe George, Duke of Clarence, was older then King Richard III. -- GoodDay (talk) 23:07, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Indeed! Thanks. Surtsicna (talk) 23:59, 17 June 2021 (UTC)
Is the table legible enough? Or would it be better to simplify or split it? I have toyed with rearranging the children of John and Joan, hoping for less intersecting lines, but I do not think anything would be gained. Surtsicna (talk) 00:05, 18 June 2021 (UTC)
It looks great in its current form. Would have no objections, if you added them throughout all royal bios. GoodDay (talk) 00:12, 18 June 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the encouragement! It takes time to find these in published biographies and to recreate them, though, and there are many royal bios around. But Rome was not built in a day. Surtsicna (talk) 00:29, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

2nd and 3rd Duke of Somerset[edit]

This page states that, When Richard Duke of York was replaced in France, his replacement was Henry Beaufort, 3rd Duke of Somerset. This is incorrect. Henry Beaufort was born in 1436. York was replaced in France in 1443, first by Henry's grandfather, John Beaufort, 1st Duke of Somerset, and then by Henry's father Edmund Beaufort, 2nd Duke of Somerset. Henry Beaufort was sent to Calais in 1459 to dislodge the Earl of Warwick. That was his only military command in France. Wayside55 (talk) 02:02, 11 July 2021 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 13 July 2021[edit]

Edmund remained in London not Warwick. Thus Warwick was killed along with York at the battle of Wakefield 2A02:C7F:F295:FA00:52D:9F29:5624:2AC8 (talk) 21:02, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
