  1. I have a question, maybe you could answer. Why in US is totally different date format than in Europe? US mm/dd/yyyy, in Europe (seems to be more logical) dd/mm/yyyy

  2. HistoryMatters, can you please upload a new video explaining the question on why the Soviet Union or Union Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.) didn’t really annexed Poland and incorporated into it as a constituent republic like the way it did to the 3 Baltic Countries after World War 2?

  3. 0:04 Armorica or French Brittany was never part of "England" but an independant kingdom sometimes allied to England sometime allied to France in those times, and then a French duchy

  4. Other exceptions from Ethiopia though. Abyssinia changed its name to Ethiopia (name from greeks) after the rest Horn of Africans became muslims. Ethiopia then went on several crusades by itself against somalis, oromos, afars and so on where it was successful in converting western oromo people. Ethiopia had a battles back and forth with the Somali kingdom of Adal where it’s intentions were to make them christians and Adal’s was the opposite. Luckily things calmed down until Europeans showed up to colonise. I can’t get deep into this but long story short, Europeans made borders without knowing how things were there and they expanded Ethiopia’s borders severely. Ethiopia then went eastwards in 20th century to convert the Muslims there. Ethiopia didn’t succeed well though and even if you look in modern day map you’d see the clear Muslim and Christian divide in Ethiopia. One of the more memorable events that happened then was to the Harar people who lived in one of the oldest muslim cities (harar). They were ethnic cleansed and their mosques that were among the oldest were turned into churches.

  5. Hope this video doesn´t give netflix ideas to make a version with a black richard the lion heart and a trasgender saladin.

  6. Jesus would war! Right! Believe or torturous death! All for nation, resources, and money! Those that do in Jesus’s name must be insane, or 😆 🏴‍☠️’s under cover!

  7. 1:48: This is the funniest way that plan could have failed. It would be foolish enough to rely on a potential foreign ally without contacting them first in this era of global news and social media, but it's all the worse in the medieval period. The Crusaders just expected the Nubians to hear rumors of their arrival and mobilize an army at the last minute before following the Europeans' battle plans. Iconic crusader moment.

  8. This is a question I have been asking for years after I read of a Crusader church in Germany that had a statue of an African in full military crusader regalia.
    It always amazed me as to why and how such a figure could be in a medieval church and that led me to read about the Nubian and Ethiopian churches and also sadly the destruction and annihilation of Nubian Christianity by the Mamluks.
    It opened my eyes to a chapter of Christianity that I had little knowledge about.
    I'm so glad we're starting to hear more about these Christians that dissapeared into the pages of history

  9. The caliphates were good at keeping people on their sides ignorant of each other. Learned it from the Persians. "Where'd these spices and silks come from?" "From us. Don't worry about it, bro" lol

  10. Stop rushing. Explain what these countries are on these maps. What are we even looking at?

    @ 0:18 map, you only name 4 Nations. There's at least twice as many involved.

    @ 0:00 map, you also name 3 Nations that aren't relavant. Replace those 3 with 3 that are!

  11. will the church his had a dark and bad past because they used gods word to kill people and killed children they ignored gods love and forgiveness because the crusaders didn’t agree with John 3:16 and didn’t agree with preach the gospel to all nations and didn’t agree with loving your neighbor and foreigners they reject Jesus Christ teachings using gods word to killed people is wrong it was a Dark history for Christianity because god wants us to love each other and forgiven each preach the gospel to all people and nations that is what Jesus Christ would of have wanted not killing people in his name and Islam and Muslim believe in god but not Jesus Christ because they think he doesn’t have a sin that’s the problem and the Christians were added things in the Bible and taking things out of the Bible using it for there own agendas and it all goes back to Abraham was a lslamic and god did speak to the Muslims and lalamic people because god wanted to created a mighty nation called Israel 🇮🇱

  12. It's actually kind of sad to think about. If the African Christians and European Christians had maintained greater knowledge of one another, and the African Christian kingdoms had retained a higher degree of power, it's doubtful that the subsequent transatlantic slave trade would've occurred because Europeans and their colonists in the Americas would've likely seen Africans as their Christian equals, and the "savages" narrative never would've taken off.
