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.
Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Socrates, etc the list goes on...
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.
>ITT retards take Medieval prose literally
No you moron, Richard and Philip were not homosexuals, the comment "they were in bed with each other" means that they were negotiating and acting like lovers. An ANALOGY.
His homosexuality is debatable (it's pretty likely he was asexual) but I'd have to pick T.E. Lawrence.
Why are people so horribly ignorant of History on a HISTORY forum?
There was no privacy in medieval society. "Pajamas" weren't a thing yet so most people slept naked, and Inns would often have massive "beds" holding tens of strangers sleeping together under the same blankets and probably all naked. This doesn't mean "LOL H0M0S3X" but the culture of the times you twit.
He wasn't aesexual, he was simply dedicated to his work and had the same energetic spirit of his father, which meant he never stuck around. He also probably bedded female members of his mobile court like any King, but it took a while to arrange a tactical marriage for him, and his bridge had to chase the man across the entire continent to meet up with her Husband outside Outremer in Cyrpus.
But considering Wives didn't typically camp out with their husband during a siege, I doubt poor Queen Berengaria even saw her husband that much- Richard was almost ALWAYS besieging something. He was a warrior who never had the time to focus on making an Heir.
>He had a wife and children
Lots of gay people do. But there's still not really any evidence of Hitler having homosexual sexual encounters.
The idea that he might have been homosexual or bisexual does certainly add a layer of drama to the SA purge though, which is usually the context I see it suggested in.
Pretty biased because I'm Dutch (and it's somewhat debatable whether he was gay, but very likely), but he was a rad dude
>had to be king of the Netherlands because his brother conquered is
>was made fun of because he couldn't speak Dutch very well
>study hard, learnt Dutch
>was a great king and helped the country through a few disasters such as floods and an explosion in a munition ship
>has a bitching wife who doesn't like him (no shit) or the Netherlands, she asks Napoleon to ask Louis back and have higher taxes in the Netherlands
>Louis refuses, putting Dutch interests above the French
>English invade southern Netherlands, he can't defend because Napoleon doesn't send troops
>Napoleon has an excuse to kick him out as a result
>long after he was allowed by the new king of the Netherlands to visit the country, he is in disguise but noticed by some people
>a cheering crowd gathers in front of his hotel
What a cool dude
Cecil Rhodes, that faggot even had a few countries named after him
>"To think of these stars that you see overhead at night, these vast worlds which we can never reach. I would annexe the planets if I could; I often think of that. It makes me sad to see them so clear and yet so far."
Based Rhodes had the best quotes
I'd have loved to see this nigga with his second wife, they probably were the most hilarious couple of their time.
>For me it is clearly Philippe "Buttfucker" the Second "Augustus". Not only did he fuck Richard Coeur de Lion (Literally and metaphorically)
>literally fucked Richard Coeur de Lion
This is a widely discredited idea.
The Prussian one, right? Both are based.
His first wife wasn't as bad.
There was a mutual respect, they were both very literate but that's only true for the last years.
She eventually dealt with it but she was unhappy at first, she was very jealous of her husband's favourites.
Things went better when the succession was guaranteed.
