“The original telegram sent to the Commander-in-Chief of the Home Fleet only referred to ‘Prince Makelen of Abbysinia [sic]; and suite’ (quoted in Peter Stansky, “On or About December 1910: Early Bloomsbury and its Intimate World” [Harvard University Press, 1996], p. 25).”

I could email my contact at OUP (who sent me the DNB entries to work on). I'll need a full explanation backed by references, of course. None of us would expect anything less! Perhaps a suggested rewording? They might not accept it, but it would serve as an illustration.

Or perhaps Peter has already tried?

Now this error has been spotted, is there anyone who knows how to get the DNB to correct it?

Thanks for sending this. I’m sorry that it repeats the standard error, based on Adrian Stephen’s account, that it was a visit by the emperor. The main visitor rather claimed to be Prince Malaken, a royal prince. Best, Peter Stansky
