      I want to go back to that time so bad, anons. The world was so much more magical back then. Beautiful castles. Very neat, strong, orderly hierarchical structure in society. Tales of witches and strange creatures and elves in the forests. Everyone is religious and goes to church. Lots of holidays celebrated as a community. Traditional culture. Knights going on quests and adventures. Monks in monasteries. Nobility.
      Now everything is trash.

          Don’t you agree? Modernism has killed the magic and charm of the world. The so-called """Enlightenment""" was a terrible mistake and the Free Masons were behind it.

        That world never faded, no amount of modernity and machinery can ever tear the inherent strangeness and wonder from it, you’ve merely been blinded to it by the predominant modes of thinking.

        We should actually be taking more aesthetic influence from the Middle Ages though.

              That’s because infant mortality was higher, as was always the case in the natural world before the industrial revolution. People besides the infant mortalities had normal lifespans.
              Due to the industrial revolution, bad genes are not removed by nature now which is why society has been overrun with scrotebrains and bugmen and scrotes like you.

              Kind of a meme because child deaths in child-births dragged down the avaerage. Mothers and Children dided all the time before modern medicine started interviening there.

              If you made it past your 20s, then expecting to live to your 60s was not an unreasonible thought.

              tl;dr: Life expectency was noticibly lower but not as low as you think

                It wasn’t even child birth deaths but rather to 18. You had roughly 50% odds of dying before reaching 18 due to diseases and the like given how weaker children’s immune systems are and how much they have to develop over time. That 50% isn’t the coin flip of you die or live, it’s that if you have 10 children in your hamlet 5 of them are going to die before they reach 18.

                What’s important to remember about the past is:
                1) It was not always the grimdark miserable shitshow that modern perceptions of the pre-modern past hold it to be
                2) When things got bad they got apocalyptically bad, to the point that nobody born after 1945 likely has any ability to comprehend just how bad they got. You’d need to have experienced WW2 in Eastern Europe, the Holdomor or been in Serbia during ww1 or China during the wars with Japan or seen the famines in India to have an idea of how bad things would get when things went pearshaped in the past.
                3) People underestimate how terrible pre-modern surgery/medicine was. I remember seeing a jackass here who went "In my 30 years of living I never needed to see a doctor so what the fuck has modern medicine done for me? Fuck it I’d be gucci in the past" as if expecting his clean, idyllic, well nutritioned lifestyle today would be replicated then. Yes, we know peasants food was in some ways better than ours in times of plenty. Times weren’t always plenty.

          you know englishmen, at least, DID leave their villages all the time, right? One of the perils of modern, steady employment is that you’re expected to be steadily employed. If a free man wanted to fuck off and walk across england with a staff, or sword and buckler, he could.

              If you’re not wealthy? Lose your home and then have to explain the gap in your employment history when you try to find another job. Hope your credit score or equivalent isn’t so bonked you end up unable to get any but the shittiest apartment- and then try to explain to your prospective landlord why you got evicted or broke your last lease.

                  It would seem the answer is: No. Not if you’re doing this at a time of year without a ton of work to be done, since you’re probably a farmer, and you’re likely not paying monthly rent, just taxes. Plus, the canterbury tales make it clear that people did in fact travel, at least on pilgrimage, with some complaints that a lot of "pilgrims" were essentially tourists.

                  If you’re some dirt poor villein you’re bonked, but freemen had options. They came with risks, obviously fuck off too long and your farm suffers, fail to unfuck it and you may starve or be impoverished.

              It’s better than famine and endemic warfare. There are a few things that are worse about modern life, but the people who look at the past as better for the common man are wearing unbelievably thick rose tinted glasses.

            The more things change, the more they stay the same. I have no doubt most medievals would completely reject our lifestyle if it were offered to them. They’d rather be a reasonably well-off townsman in their own times than an apartment-dwelling urbanite today.

      In Poland the most woke af rulers were:
      Boleslaw the Wry-Mouthed – he gained the nickname because he told his sis that he would not kill him if he returned to the country (which of course eventually he did)
      Leszek the White – allegedly he said ,,In the Holy Land there is no beer, therefore it is impossible to live there”. He died completly naked while being pursued by rebels who surprised him in a ,,sauna”
      Boleslaw the Brave/Generous – when he learned that the wives of his knights weren’t behaving very well while their husbands were away he ordered to swap their babies with dogs’ babies. Also, he personally dismembered a bishop.

            View from the octagon to the main hall, facing the shrine of Karl the Great, where he is buried. Behind that, there is the shrine of Mary, where the loincloth of Jesus, the swaddling clothes of Jesus, the dress of Mary from the Holy Night and the garment in which the head of John the Baptist was stored are kept. Once every 7 years (2021 being the next one), they are shown to the public.

                The throne of Karl the Great, second floor of the octagon. 31 German kings and Emperors sat down on it after their coronation in order to signify that they were successors of Karl.

                  The pic doesn’t really do it justice, as with many cathedrals, I suppose. In real life, it was considerably brighter, depending on the sun of course.

      Phillipe le bel 4 , french king and pope Clement 4 acted together. Firstly they imprisoned JBM and then theyt burned a Big Grand Master Templar Jacques Bourguignon Molay (he was considered as a Prophet for them) because he was commiting sins and gaining power "they told".
      After that ,all the freemasons vowed on their souls to take revenge on the church and the king.
      They are still are mad even today they cannot forget that , thats also why its called Black Friday cuz JBM was burned on a Friday.

        battle of lützen in 1632. waged between two of the greatest commanders of their time (wallenstein vs. gustav adolf II king of sweden), burned out by three decades of war and with everything on the line. the raw emotion of it all makes up for the lukewarm results of this particular battle, in my opinion.

        In no particular order, hundred years war, black plague, ghibellines vs guelfs, the crusades, armagnac/burgundian feud, norman invasion of british isles, kievan rus vs mongols and successor hordes, franks vs muslim invasion, muslim annex of hispania, bulgar invasion in balkans, viking invasions, hungarian invasion in balkans/central europe, xtianization of baltic lands, and most frankish (merovingian and carolingian) noble family drama plays out like a good hbo drama. Looking at you brunhilda and fredegund.

      All of them. They convinced thousands of other men to die for them. They lived in nice conditions compared to the peasants. They had access to the best pussy. They ruled over the land for no other reason then their dad did. They were all woke af fi you ask me.

        Depends on what century and whereabouts but some had civil duties such as judicator. Since many knights held their own land through vassalage, they were in charge of the matter of the land unless they appointed someone to do so. I dont think that became prevalent until after the crusades. As the centuries moved on, the definition of what a knight is and does loosened. There were also different options for knights depending on their reputation and wealth.
