LNAB European royals

LNAB for some profiles is the English version, for some the local version, for some the "house" for some, the inherited name, some for the region, some for the country.  I see duplications everywhere due to different LNAB's.  I'd like to find a consensus on which names to use for different eras.  For example, if the person is a member of a "House," should that be the standard for that era?  In Scandinavia, last names change with every generation, and I've seen "Norge," Danmark," etc. as an LNAB.   I know this has been discussed a lot, but I still see variations every day.  Doing a search of "Denmark," I am not going to find "Of_Denmark," and "avDanmark" or "Oldenburg," or "Oldenberg" unless I have enough experience to do this kind of search for myself.

We could eliminate a lot of misdirections if we could settle on a guideline by regions and by dates. What I mean by that is a chart or something listing by 1. "country, (Sachen, Saxony) " 2. by date (from "1100-1450,") the royal LNAB should be "____."

If such a directory exists, I have not found it.

Hi Sheri, I think you need to add the euroaristo tag as well.

Hi Sheri! Have just looked up Christian 4th of Denmark and think I understand your frustration.

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Oldenburg-112

Christian IV Danmark IV formerly Oldenburg aka King of Denmark.

1. His last name was never »Denmark«, as a royal he was baptised with several names, but no lastname.

2. Neither was his last name »Oldenburg« it's his provenance, which he is count of.

3. His name is »Christian IV« King of Denmark & Norway, Duke of Slesvig, Holsten, Dietmarsken & Stormarn, Count of Oldenburg & Delmenhorst.

4. He was husband of: Anna Cathrine of Brandenburg and to his left Kirstine Munk. Rest was mistresses!, some even not.

5. He did not die at Amalienborg, simply because that castle was'nt build those days. He died at Rosenborg Slot (castle).

Actually I had to google him to find him in Wikitree, I had never found him else. If I should have looked him up in Wikitree, I would probably have searched for: Firstname: Christian and Last name: IV.
