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.

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.

I think the focus on the merchant cities ignore the incredibly more interesting webs that italian inner city states created between 1100 to 1350. Constant deadlock, fraticide warfare, struggle to eradicate or integrate remaining feudal powers, intense commercial routes, economic growth and constant rise to power of newmans, ending with the consolidation of the major italian powers by 15th century.

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.

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...

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.

It is interesting how this evolved into the "Bastion Fort" (trace italienne) during the early modern period This change was a consequence of the fall of Constatinople, the new weapons, such as gunpowder cannons, made it possible and necessary

I'm a little bit clueless as to what kind of guild they are refering to in this documentary because in Germany there is a distinction between merchant-guilds (Gilden/ Hansen) and non-merchant guilds (Zünfte). Cologne had a lot of both and I can't find any literature explicitely mentioning four specific ones. After getting rid of Bishop oversight, Cologne was ruled in it's first few years of independence exclusively by Patrician merchant families (who formed temporary guilds based on circumstances). The four biggest of those families were the: Overstolz, Birklin/de Cornu, Hardefust, Aducht/Marspforte. Maybe they are refering to the Zünfte instead, but the importance of those changed constantly so there weren't four specific ones for the entirety of the middle ages. The most prevalent and reoccuring ones would probably have been the artisan, weaver, blacksmith and cloth shearers. The third option would be that the makers of the video are talking about the largest or most powerful of the 'Gaffel' units, which were 22 political factions/ guild federations, composed of multiple guilds or 'Zünfte'. Four of those were merchant dominated: -Eysenmarkt -Windeck -Himmelreich -schwartzhauß

Please make a video about the Battle of Carmen de Patagones, the only battle fought in Patagonia in the post-colonial period. It had naval and land warfare components!
