Random fact: German cities had notoriously bad relations with their overlords, especially bishops. The city of Mainz murdered their archbishop in 1160. The entire citizenry was excummunicated but they just hosted a big party for the holy roman emperor in 1184 who promptly ignored the will of the pope and gave them back all their city-priviliges.

@Luis Aldamiz agreed. Without Bishops most cities would have been exploited or kept small by local knights and the rural aristocracy.

Killed by a butcher no less. Also the number of times that feudals told the church to pound sand makes me think that the power of religion in the Medieval period is typically overstated. The church never seems to be able to make even the lowliest knight do anything he doesn't want to do.

Honestly to me it seems a bit assurd that they only talked about germany, while in Italy you had cities building literal city states and forming leagues for defense against the emperor of the hre, moreover there is a term for it "l'Italia dei comuni" italy of communes (not in the communist sense) because an italian state didnt exist and italy was full of small entities each projecting their own influence

@Øyvind Holmstad the reality would make it not that much of a good dream. It was crowded, dirty, smelly with no hygiene to speak off. Live span was short, brutal and extremely difficult. I sometime think we have it so easy in our modern world that we forget that in the past life wasn’t such a party. Funny enough cities in Antiquity were probably a much better time to be alive in.

It would have been great, if you had talked about the role of the Reichsstldte (imperial cities), especially Frankfurt in the march to defend the besieged city of Neuss at the northern theatre of the burgudian wars. It could be stated, that it was the last big try in imperial politics of the free cities, before the territorial princes made there consolidating moves. But to focus on the exception of the Swiss confederation is totally valid, especially because it is a lesser discussed subject, at least here in Germany.

Here in Switzerland we don't learn (in Sschool) what went on in the neighburing states, except for the one that were eventually included in the federation (e.g. Neuchatel, Bale). My guess is this is deliberately done to promote national unity. I would love to have learned more about the Hanse and trade routes in europe!

I feel using topographic maps would bring allot to your videos. Allowing viewers to see a realistic view of world geography, rather than an inaccurate stylized map. The “terrain” mode of google maps is a great example of how insightful pinpoint awareness of geography can help us understand why borders were drawn the way they were. If the rights usages are prohibitive, Perhaps you could use a topographic map as a guide to trace over your own stylized map, which still captures a high degree of geographic fidelity. As you get more into the alps it may be very revealing just how clustered sections of mountains and valleys defined the flow of history. Perhaps even revealing the flows of armies through Canyon passes, or the migration route of the Etruscans into Northern Europe.

About the Burgundian Wars and the death of Charles The Bold, in Switzerland exists a rhyme. In Grandson (First Battle) Charles lost his fortune In Murten (Second Battle) He lost his Courage And in Nancy (Third Battle and dying place of Charles) He lost his Blood For explanation, after the first battle Charles fleed with leaving all his battle equipment behind which Bern took as "payment", after the battle at Murten he started fearing Bern as a threat and in Nancy, he got killed and was found two days after the battle in a frozen pond

@Dreagostini You're correct on nationalism, since that wasn't a thing until the 19th century anyway. However there was some sense of a common German identity, but it was a rather loose bond of language and culture compared to lets say the French. On the other hand, the Holy Roman Empire already added the "of the German nation" to its name in the 15th century, so there was a territorial idea of Germany back then too already.

Ole Nickel
Ole Nickel Жыл бұрын
@Rowing Away It's even looser when you consider that there were several German languages. Low German and Bavarian, for example, aren't just dialects, but languages in their own rights with distinct cultures attached to them. It's often forgotten that German Nationalism also involved a very conscious political effort to unify and codify a common language, while suppressing other German languages. If history had gone differently, we may now look back at a distinct Low Germany and would maybe talk about the Hansa in terms that would make it seem inevitable that an independent and distinct Low German nation would arise from it...

Hi! Great video guys. This is just a super minor mistake that you sadly cannot rectify but at 14:22 you confuse the original Flag of the Canton of Glarus with the modern Flag of the City of Glarus. Canton and City are a bit like Washington state and Washington DC, as in they're different units. For a Swiss person that looks a bit shabbily researched, but I totally understand that this is a minor detail. Otherwise we'll done, great video!

Being under siege really sucked back then. The worst part wasn't your enemies trying to scale the walls or bombardments. Modern pluming wasn't a thing meaning waste would always end up in the city streets during the siege, causing disease with no cures invented yet to counter them, which killed multitudes of people residing inside the city.
