Okay, so as we all know, 4chan was founded as a Japanese Culture and Anime website. So I think it only stands to reason that we have approved /his/ animes.
"This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. "
Berserk is the first anime that comes to mind.
How did Russia end up so huge? Why did no other nations form within it's territory. I only say this because it seems there isn't a clear and distinct homogenus Russian ethnicity.
Russians were the only ethnic group who got to benefit from the the scientific and philosophical revolutions of Europe while being independent. The other Slavs were already taken over, and the Tartary of Siberia had no access. Before Russian Expansionism, there were plenty of Khanates, but they all fell apart.
Can we settle this once and for all? Were Egyptians ethnic Africans?
My understanding is that Egyptians comprised primarily of Greek, European, other levantine and Mediterranean peoples which would make them "olive". At some point the Persians invaded which is where we get the idea of Egyptians as Arabs.
Did Nubians ever contain anything in Egypt politically?
>My understanding is that Egyptians comprised primarily of Greek, European
That was only during the Ptolemaic dynasty, which is like the last 300 years of Ancient Egyptian history. For most of Ancient Egyptian history there were only limited trading outposts in Egypt.
To answer your last question. Nubians did rule Egypt briefly, during the 25th dynasty, which lasted about a hundred years.
This a thread for the discussion of that most legendary English monarch, the once and future king, the man we call King Arthur. It is also for the discussion of Camelot, the Round Table and the Knights that sat there, and the politics of the court.
Topics to kick off discussion:
>What's your favorite Arthurian romance?
>What's your favorite historical analysis of King Arthur?
>Does your country have a cultural counterpart(s) to King Arthur?

I don't understand that.
You forgive someone when they forget to wipe their boots before coming inside your house and muddying up your clean floors.
You don't forgive adultery.
That's the kind of the stuff that gets you flayed alive.

It takes a hell of a religion to make Norse gods look like a bunch of goddamn pussies but here we are
Who was Jack the Ripper, /his/?
At what point did the Islamic World begin to lag behind Europe? It seemed that for hundreds of years, the Islamic World was a serious rival to Europe.
Let's share our /his/ reaction images. Now that we have our board, it'll only grow.
What if Remus had won instead of Romulus? What would the Reman Empire look like?
What could hitler and the germans have done diffrently that could have made them win the war or at least made the allies sue for peace ?
Know when to quit. Settle for something like the Sudetenland, Danzig, and Alsace-Lorraine, establish new and genuinely independent governments with troop restrictions in conquered territory. Offer a peace Britain can accept and peace out.
Problem was that Nazi ideology wasn't about revising Versailles, but about genociding/enslaving eastern europe and dominating western europe. No one else would accept that, so they got dragged into unwinnable war after war.
What was the most interesting civil war and why was it the Spanish one?
Common misconceptions about history thread! To start off: The ruling class actually give half a moist towlette about any of us.
>read any story about a poor as fuck pleb making shit tons of money and becoming "upper class"
>surprised to find he's a selfish asshole with no sympathy for lazy poor fuckers
Wow what a development.
Somalian history dump, dump any historical facts about somalia

Who is the most badass homosexual dude of History ?
For me it is clearly Philippe "Buttfucker" the Second "Augustus". Not only did he fuck Richard Coeur de Lion (Literally and metaphorically), but he proved his worth in the Crusades, won a huge siege battle in Normandy, conquered (Or rather, liberated) half of France, but he has beaten up the Holy Roman Emperor and his flemish militias in melee and basically created the modern french state by somewhat-abolishing the feudal system, instead replacing it with the Royal Absolutism.
Why does he look like lord farquaad?
>Not only did he fuck Richard Coeur de Lion (Literally and metaphorically)
No he didn't, stop with that shitty meme. This is based on the fact that they spent a night in the same bed once. Except in the Middle Ages this was just a sign of friendship and familiarity since members of the same family typically all slept in one large bed, certainly not of homosex which would make absolutely no sense for such a public political statement.
Nearly every HNIC before the 19th century was fond of buttfucking 12-18 year old boys.
Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Socrates, etc the list goes on...
Pederasty was Real Nigga Shit, it's a shame it's so taboo nowadays. However, on 4chan where everyone is anonymous, you realize just how many people are into "traps" and "boypussy"
