Why do people wank over the byzantine empire so much ?
They were dishonourable cunts basically I mean 1204 and so forth were the consequences of them not paying debts which they did to many other groups like the catalan company for example.
The only thing I think is good is that their last emperor died fighting the ottomans but I have only seen one source for it so it could be bullshit.
Like, I understand if you wanna use that argument to troll Byzaboos, but ironically expecting an empire to pay gigantic sums of money and give their entire fleet away for several months because some pretender promised to do so?
What can you tell me about the golden age of Islam?
What the fuck was his problem?
>USSR population: 188 milion
>Germany population: 69 milion
Why is this "muh great victory" meme propaganda still going?
Who was the last individual to receive a title like for example "The Great" in history?
It's commonly accepted that the First Nations failed to achieve the same greatness of Europe and Asia because they couldn't domesticate anything larger than a llama, which does not pull carts very well.
With only hindsight for help, could it actually have been done with Stone Age technology?
>pic no necessarily related
Yea, likely from the impacts of climate change and over hunting. Horses and camels could have been an option.
What happend to them, really ?
If we go back in time Greece was one of the most civilized and developed countries from that era.
They gave us a lot of smart people to this world, also a good contribution to science. They gave us democracy.
And now, well...
Are greeks really greeks ? Or thanks to Ottoman Empire they are only half of what they're was once (interbreeding beetwen a greek and Turkish). Did the Ottoman Empire enrichment them with some "new" DNA ?
The spear thread inspired me to create a thread about how effective various weapons/shields/armour would be against other types of weapons/shields/armour.
Now we all know that on battlefield two swords would be much inferior to sword and shield because of missilies, but on unarmored one-on-one fight how well would two swords do against:
sword and dagger
sword and buckler
sword and shield (targe)
Trebuchets had superior anti armor capabilities desu.
Assuming two equaly skilled combatants,
Is the enemy using both hands to yield the longsword? Then two swords win easily. He's vulnerable after each missed/blocked attack. You can either parry with one and counterattack with the other or set up an attack with your right by diverting your enemy's attention with the left, like in boxing.
>sword and dagger
Same as above.
sword and buckler
Same as above....

Caesar was about to set out of Rome to conquest Darcia and Parthia in a 3 years military campaign, unfortunately he got assassinated before he could do that.
Could he make it had he not been killed by senator gangs ?
there is nothing caesar couldn't do, even not getting stabbed. he let himself get stabbed because he was such an unyieldingly democratic mind and it seemed his death was the majority vote.
Caesar was a god on earth and parthia would have been fucked hard and good
What went wrong /his/?

Did it ever happen that a noble would take a Pretty peasant female and pay for her education and expenses and actually make her smart just to be with her?
Can anyone share some images of the food lines in the UdSSR during the 80's or earlier? I'm finding nothing reliable myself
