Thank you for visiting this page! I am Polylerus.

I'm interested in history, languages, comics, vexillology, and saints, but my Wikipedian journeys have led me down disparate paths. Half Welsh, half Canary Islander, but born in the East Riding, I discovered Wikipedia in late 2004, and have been addicted ever since. My first article was Auloniad. Below are the articles that I've begun.

Do you have a question for me?

Sí, hablo español.

The Polyleritan Gallery[edit]






























Chincha Islands War

First Carlist War

Language and Literature[edit]

Books, Comics, Films, Newspapers, Plays, TV[edit]





GFDL Images[edit]

God, I'm thirsty...

I perform edits, wikifications, and clean-ups when needed; I love doing this.

DYK medal.png The DYK Medal
You've done extraordinary work creating several Saints articles which have been interesting and substantive enough to qualify for inclusion on the Main Page. This is no small achievement, given the level of competition. I personally believe you have more than earned this slight recognition. John Carter 14:56, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
