Thomas Leopold I in a costume for a horse-ballet

In February, a self-identified European prince requested that we add his name to the Italian Wikipedia article about princes in his region. We referred him to the community of editors, and informed him of Wikipedia’s policy on verifiability. As it turns out, he had already personally tried to make the edits to the article, and then called other editors names when they found his edits lacked independent verifiability. Without such sources, the community of editors removed the alleged prince’s edits from the article.
