Currently we have two tags:
As we know, Eastern Roman Empire and Byzantine Empire both refer to the same political entity.
So it doesn't make sense to keep them as distinct tags (Which is also annoying to ERE lovers like me who want to scream it's the Eastern Roman Empire, not the Byzantine Empire as Western Europe used to call them).
I propose that:
- We should keep Byzantine Empire tag as the main tag due to its more universal usage and popularity (As sad as it is).
- We should map Eastern Roman Empire tag to Byzantine Empire tag as a synonym.
- We should remove ERE tag from the existing three questions (If we have to, I don't know if synonymization will remove it automatically or not).
I have created a synonym suggestion for the tag here. Please vote to have it approved. Thanks.
