The English Royalty WikiProject was formed in order to foster better articles within its scope with a spirit of cooperation. The participants are a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to English royalty. This WikiProject is modelled on WikiProject British royalty and was started in September 2008. It is our hope that this project will provide an amicable atmosphere in which the efforts of interested Wikipedians can be focussed. If you would like to help, please inquire on our talk page and visit our to do section.
