It's great that we now have a Latin source cited verbatim. I removed the existing source for "Princeps Niger": I don't trust it, because I suspect the Vicipaedia editor copied it from en:wiki, where the same book is cited as a source for "Black Prince", and invented "Princeps Niger". If I'm mistaken, amice assidue 194.153.110.5, please accept my apologies, revert my deletion, and quote the book verbatim! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 11:26, 24 Augusti 2019 (UTC)

Well, but Richard Barber FRSL FSA FRHistS, author of the cited book, is a British historian specializing in the medieval period; still, citations from centuries earlier than the twentieth carry more weight, so he'll not be missed here. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 11:46, 24 Augusti 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I quite agree, but I'm just not sure that 194.153.110.5, possibly living on a Swiss mountain, had really looked at the book. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:13, 24 Augusti 2019 (UTC)
The form "Princeps Niger" can be verified on line, from a source 400 years earlier than the citation I don't trust! So I'll re-insert it with a citation. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 11:40, 24 Augusti 2019 (UTC)
