Name Edit

Do either The Night is Long, and Dreams Are Legion or The Eleventh Tiger address him in the DWU as "Huang"? In the real world at least, Qin Shi Huang is a title, not a family name, which is literally "first emperor of Qin". After the second page, The Immortal Emperor repeatedly refers to him simply as "the Emperor", with a "Mighty Emperor" on page 5. -- Tybort (talk page) 16:32, March 24, 2018 (UTC)

Just checked -- The Night is Long, and Dreams Are Legion only calls him "Ch'in", but in The Eleventh Tiger he's "Qin Shi Huangdi" and "Qin Shi Huang". (I also think he's called Qin Shi Huang in The Emperor of Eternity.) I don't think we need to worry about it technically being a title; rather like "the Doctor" or "the Master", while "first emperor of Qin" seems impersonal at first glance, since it's used exclusively to refer to one person, and in lieu of their name (even Wikipedia lists him as Qin Shi Huang!) I think it's "name enough" to count. – N8 19:50, March 24, 2018 (UTC)
