Label in EnglishEdit

@PKM, SilentSpike: I see that you the first label was "non-fictional character" (added by an IP) then "historical figure" then "historic figure" then "historical figure" (again) then finally "fictionalized human". I agree that "historical figure" is not the most appropriate (possible confusion/contamination with historical figure (Q5774265)) but "fictionalized human" is very unexpected. I'm not a native English speaker, but I guess something like "historical character" would be better, isn't it?

"Historical character" would be okay with me. - PKM (talk) 21:15, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
