If Hitler listened to his generals and left Berlin when the soviets attack, what would be their next plan?
Seems like half of Irish look tanned and Mediterranean, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek looking, while the rest are very light skinned and look almost Nordic. Why is this?
The ones that look like Colin Farrell are descendants of the original Iberian population the other ones are descendant from a later Germanic-Celtic population which supplanted the native darker ones.
The ones that look like left are descendants of the Tuath Dé, the ones that look like the right are the descendants of the Fomori.
Who /scythians/ here?
If you could change a single event in the world history, no matter how big or small, what would it be?
4chan is never created.
Or the Bronze Age Collapse never takes place. That would have some of the biggest effect I think. All the languages would be different, Western and Eastern culture as we know it wouldn't exist. Technology would probably be radically different too.
How does a rag-tag volunteer army in need of a shower somehow defeat a global superpower?
what /his/torical fantasies do you have?
I personally spend at least an hour before bed fantasizing what it'd be like to ride the steppes and conquer the world under one banner
Taking some whore from nam back to the United States
I sometimes have historical fap fantasies along those lines
Being a Britbong sailor in the 18th century, sailing across the Pacific and trading iron nails for sex with hot Polynesian girls, all without having to fear scurvy.

Let's start a thread about badass saints and stupid saints.
This badass Saint with an axe is Saint Boniface. He chopped down Donar's Oak as a fuck you to the Norse God's. But for some reason, despite being pictured with an axe he's not the Patron Saint of Lumberjacks. That's some asshole named Saint Gummarus who was some noble in a horrible marriage who left his cunt wife and lived as a hermit.
Here's a picture of Gummarus, notice he's not holding an axe
How about Martin of Tours who called down angels hold back a crowd of rustic pagan scum so he could burn down their temple. And then they all saw the glory of God and praised him. well until like most early converts they held onto old superstitions and other idols that hadn't been destroyed by the local saint in the making. post-Constantine Christianity is full of this shit desu. christianity is of meek and mild Jesus indeed
A better one is Saint Guinefort. He's literally a dog that a nobleman left to look after his newborn while he hunted. When he came back the crib was flipped over and the dog was covered in blood, wagging his tale. The noble killed the dog only to pick up the crib to find his baby, unharmed, next to a dead snake. Despite the Vatican's efforts to purge this cult people still venerate Guinefort until the 1930s
Who was in the wrong here?
Yep. This is something that so many people don't seem to get. Rome was completely in the hands of traitors who had usurped her legal government, with all power in the city extralegally resting in the hands of two men, one a tribune of the plebs (Sulpicius Rufus) and the other a mere private citizen (Marius).
What should Sulla have done, let command over to Marius and allowed himself to be exiled or massacred by Marius and his supporters, as so many others were? Fuck that. Sulla fought with Rome's fighting...

Well, Marius wanted Rome for himself when Sulla tried to heal a decadent Republican regime. Sulla was a man from the past, when Marius understood the future of Rome.
#TeamSulla tho, I admire what he did for Rome and his sacrifice.
Why are the Gospel's accounts of Jesus's so sketchy?
*Writings began 40-80 years after his death
*Extremely low amount of detail, especially at his trial. Mathew's Gospel for instance only has one spoken line by Jesus and the trial is over in a a few sentences
*Accounts contain contradictory information. In some Gospels we are told Jesus remained silent through the entire trial, while in John's Gospel he is giving a big speech. The number of people in various scenes change
*Gospel tell us the trial was not a public, making something as detailed...

Because as a historical figure he probably did not exist, and even if he did he was such an unimportant personage in his own time as to warrant zero record even in the relatively advanced recordkeeping Roman Empire. He was as known worldwide as a random ISIL organizer was today to put it in context.
Lets learn and share Architecture of the indigenous people.

Was he right about Germans?
Why don't we have direct democracy /his/?
Parliamentary arguments against direct democracy are a farce. If the people are "unable to rule", then there are some who are more able to rule than others, which undermines the idea of democracy itself.
If the people are logistically unable to rule - but wait, in modern times that's just false.
Direct democracy is long overdue already, and there are a million ways of smoothly implementing it. Direct democracy now!
Also, the majority of the population is fucking dumb, I'd rather we pick a handful of men who specialise on leadership and administration management and rotate them before they get greedy.
Fuck your direct democracy
