Error corrections or clarifications
* Prince Philip was not born "Philip Mountbatten,"
as many sources erroneously state. It wasn't until
1947, when he renounced his Greek and Danish titles,
that he took the name Mountbatten. Nor was he born
as a few sources claim.
NOTE: Some past editions of the World
Almanac and Book of Facts erroneously report Prince
Philip was born "June 1." Thankfully, newer editions
correctly list June 10th, 1921. Also, certain older
editions of the Americana Encyclopedia Annual
misreport Prince Philip's date of birth as "June 12."
