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.

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.

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"
>yfw you might live to see pederasty resurgence.
Who were the Proto-Indo-Europeans? Do they have any connection to modern Anglo-Saxons?
How can anyone deny that WASPs are the best representatives of ancient Greeks despite all the evidence?
It's very obvious what 4chan thinks of third wave feminism, but what about first and second? Justified? Mistaken?
Seems to me it was successful only because it allowed industrialists to effectively double the size of the working force, enabling wages to be driven down.
Rather than having anything at all to do with civil rights.
>There are actually "I played EU4 for 30 mins" Romanboo redditors who ACTUALLY think the byzantine empire is the same thing as the Roman Empire.
By the 14tg Century the byzantine Empire spoke a different language, had different culture, different political structure and military technology and organization to the pre-split Roman Empire. It was a completely different, considerably smaller empire
Can someone give me the lowdown on how Australia operated as a prison colony?
Between 1788 and 1815 NSW operated as a Tory spoils system with land being generously given to a squatocratic elite who wished to implement some kind of pre-1688 parish system of CoE feudalism. This was broken by a combination of aboriginal resistance, Home rule administration, navy meritocracy, and convict labour resistance. Significant here is import substitution production causing a small urban elite allied with the meritocracy and administration to turn on the squatocracy.
This then reconfigured into an agricultural...

Why is the story of Julius Caeser so much more well known than that of Augustus? What did Caeser have that Octavian didn't to have his legend perpetuated so?
Augustus had the benefit of riding on Julius' laurels (though was certainly plenty accomplished himself) while Caesar was born to a pretty humble clan of patricians. His rise was a lot more meteoric, and invokes very colorful imagery. The beloved general, the cunning barbarians, the hubris of rule, and finally, the betrayal by friends for freedom. Augustus ruled very peacefully after Antony was finished and 'hurried slowly', creating something great albeit quietly. I'd say he was more than Julius was, but Julius was the one who taught him.

Gib context if it's important
Irish general Patrick Sarsfield bemoaned the pointlessness of his having fought wars for the benefit of France and England. As he lay dying, he said
>Oh, if only this were for Ireland.
Marshal Michel Ney, to his firing squad (he had refused the blindfold).
>"Soldiers, when I give the command to fire, fire straight at my heart. Wait for the order. It will be my last to you. I protest against my condemnation. I have fought a hundred battles for France, and not one against her ... Soldiers, fire!"
Post 'em, Anons. Doesn't matter what time period, just post those history-related feels no one could ever understand but us.
