Robert Lacy[edit]

He was inserted into the list of famous Danes, but I have never heard of him, and I don't get any google hits for "Robert Lacy" "portraiture prize" and only one bad hit for "Robert Lacy" "Fish in a Barrel". Should be deleted as non-notable. (I am acting on points raised by User:Tarvin on talk:Denmark) Thue | talk 11:35, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Delete. If this portraiture prize was so notable, he could have named it. Since he hasn't, we can't verify it. I can't find any reference to the book, either - Amazon has a number of books written by more than one Robert Lacy, but none were mentioned in this article, so quite possibly this individual is well down on the list of people called Robert Lacy who have written books.
