Is there any way of producing a list of rulers of Oldenburg as duke or grand duke?

  • What's "a county resp."--Wetman 07:26, 16 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Maybe a translation of German "bzw." (beziehungsweise), meaning "respectively". Anyway, I'm about to change it... --LuiKhuntek 21:29, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

I don't really understand why there is a different article in wikipedia about the Free State of Oldenburg. The article is not called "Grand-Duchy of Oldenburg", just "state of Oldenburg". The state of Oldenburg continued to exist even after the abdication of the last grand-duke, it just became a republic. The state of Oldenburg ceased to exist legally in 1946 with the foundation of the new state of Lower Saxony. Mk4711 (talk) 13:05, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

I will remove the remark that the Frisian chiefs whom the Counts of Oldenburg were in conflict with in the thirteenth century were heathens. They weren't. Gerard von Hebel (talk) 17:13, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
