Regent Names

I have chosen to use the regents’ native names instead of English names when I wrote the lists. That is mainly for practical reasons since I also have a Swedish version of these pages, but it is also because I find it interesting to know the regents “real names”. The problem with this approach is that some names can be hard to recognize for an English speaking reader. I have therefore made a guide to how names are translated to different languages.
