Why was https://history.stackexchange.com/q/23509/8309 closed? My question is not answered in Wikipedia.
I cite the reason claimed by 4 of the 5 closers:
"Requests for trivia or basic historical facts are off-topic if they can be easily answered by looking up the relevant topic on Wikipedia. We're trying to complement common historical references, not duplicate them." – Pieter Geerkens, Kobunite, CGCampbell, Tyler Durden
