Shouldn't it be "Roberto, the King of Cornwood"? Although, I'd personally just move it to "(The) King of Cornwood" since I don't think his name is used in the Cornworld. --Buddy 05:09, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

I concur, we can drop "Roberto the" from the title. - Quolnok 06:07, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Why is the Conference Table redirecting here? it's not even a Conference Table anymore! Chris of the Futurama 17:58, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
The Redirect Fixer bot appears to have gone nuts. I don't know anything about how the bots do their jobs, so I don't know what the mistake was, but I rolled back the changes. Hopefully it won't happen again. --Buddy 18:18, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
LOL, ok, thanks. Chris of the Futurama 18:39, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Apparently the "Redirect fixer" is an "fictional" user (not a bot, it's a service) that fixes double redirects, i.e. if you have moved a page to one location and then move it again, so the first page doesn't point to the second page, which has now moved, e.g. 'page a' -> 'page b' -> 'page c'. So the fixer makes sure that 'page a' points directly at 'page c'. Unfortunately, it seems the service doesn't work as well as intended. Hence the mix up. They even say it is disabled by default, but not for us. Ooo .. --SvipTalk 19:22, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

King?[edit]

How do we know that Roberto (Cornwood) is the king of Cornwood? Isn't he the king of Wipe Castle? I never heard him being called the King of Cornwood. Chris of the Futurama 01:38, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

i suggest changing it to 'Roberto (Cornwood)'. like Zoidberg (Cornwood)--My leg feels funny! 03:16, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
The Futurama writers are very ambiguous about what exactly Cornwood consists of or what it is. Due to what Bender original states about his character, it would make one consider whether Cornwood is just a land (like Gondor or Rohan in Lord of the Rings), but Greyfarn's tale makes it more prominent that Cornwood is likely to be the whole world or the continent (as in Middle-Earth of Lord of the Rings). Which seems most likely, due in turn to the book which he carries about Cornwood.
But then Titanius' title makes no sense, because no one would be any title of a continent. At least not in a fantasy setting. Then comes the problem of Roberto. Apparently, which is only suggested more or less indirectly, Roberto's armies are the only hope for the Fellowship, and since they are gone, all hope is lost. So clearly Roberto is not just king of Wipe Castle, Wipe Castle is the city or capital of his kingdom. But is he the king of Cornwood? Debatable, Wipe Castle? Would seem a little small for a kingdom with the capacity of having an army powerful enough to stand against Momon's armies.
I recommend the article to be renamed, possibly one of the following; King Roberto, The Insane King (note: We often use titles of characters describing their personalities with their title of unnamed characters) or any variant thereof. --SvipTalk 13:39, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Awesome. Chris of the Futurama 21:53, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Awesome to the max. I like "The Insane King". We know he's King, we don't know he's named Roberto - in fact he probably isn't based on the fact that currently known names are all at least partially different. - Quolnok 10:21, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
