The edit has description: Use non breaking spaces in monarchs' names This non-breaking space is a very minor typesetting cosmetic improvement but people like me will notice when it’s missing at the wrong place.

I made that edit because I kept seeing multiple identical-seeming questions pop-up in the "related questions" section on the right. (well, not that specific one, but the habit of editing some time/date info into titles) I thought it was the best course of action for questions which get asked and answered without being merged/closed multiple times, but with ...
