REX TO BR[fontem recensere]
What does the TO signify? --Iustinus 21:34, 9 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
- What we have here is a mixture of Anglo-Saxon and Latin. The to is an Anglo-Saxon preposition, roughly corresponding to Latin ad.
- He is the first (at least since Roman times) to claim to be king of Britain, and the article wants a couple of sentences giving an explanation of that. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 22:05, 9 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
- For what it's worth, my first instinct was that it would be totius, but didn't say anything for want of any knowledge of the guy or the issue whatsoever...--Ioshus (disp) 15:58, 10 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
