    I posted this in the youtube thread as well, but two of my colleagues at the museum at which I work performed at the Kennedy Center their show about women following the army during the American Revolutionary War, and it is absolutely brilliant and a too often untold story that I highly recommend. With a bit of Q&A afterward explaining the research that went into it, and answering specific questions about some of the things they touched on.

    The rise and fall of the Mongol Empire - Anne F. Broadbridge

    5:00

    Trace the rise and fall of the Mongol Empire which, under the leadership of Genghis Khan, became the largest contiguous land empire in history.

    --

    It was the largest contiguous land empire in history— stretching from Korea to Ukraine, and from Siberia to southern China. And was forged on the open plains. In the 12th century, the East Asian steppe was home to scattered groups of nomads who, by 1206, would be united under the innovative leadership of a man named Temujin. Anne F. Broadbridge details the rise and fall of the Mongol Empire.

    So, due to childhood mortality in history, there was a good chance secondborn, or even thirdborn sons (and sometimes...gasp, women) got to inherit wealth and titles. So many what-ifs.

    For example, Edward I of England (Longshanks) eldest son was named Alphonso (after his Castillian mother's brother), a very rare name in England. Who sadly died at the tender age of ten. Imagine... among all the Henry's, Richards, and Edwards, there could have been a King Alphonso of England.

    Also, there's at least two cases of Heir Apparent's named Arthur, both tragically passed away. The first was the nephew of Richard I (the Lionheart) who on paper was supposed to succeed him, but Robin Hood wasn't able to save him from Prince John's evil clutches. (Okay, that Robin Hood part isn't true, but the fate of the boy is suspicious)

    Then there's Arthur Tudor, eldest son of Henry VII, who died shortly after being married to Catherine of Aragon. This is made even more tragic because King Henry and his wife tried to have one more kid afterwards, and the result was the death of both the mother and child. Arthur's younger brother succeeded his dad, married Catherine (ick?) which led to some interesting timelines.

    Basically, if you are planning for your kid to become literally King Arthur, Fate will step in and slap you for your hubris.

    This part is totally normal at that level of politics. England's alliance with Spain was way more important that Henry's feelings about Catherine. Based on, uh, later events he probably wasn't a fan, but he didn't really have a say.

    Commoners also often remarried that way - basically a brother would take over the dead man's place inside the family business and help provide for his widow and children

    The Diggers were pretty cool for a bunch of religious squares
    The Diggers were a group of Protestant radicals in England, sometimes seen as forerunners of modern anarchism, and also associated with agrarian socialism and Georgism. Gerrard Winstanley's followers were known as True Levellers in 1649 and later became known as Diggers, because of their attempts to farm on common land.

    Their original name came from their belief in economic equality based upon a specific passage in the Acts of the Apostles. The Diggers tried (by "levelling" land) to reform the existing social order with an agrarian lifestyle based on their ideas for the creation of small, egalitarian rural communities. They were one of a number of nonconformist dissenting groups that emerged around this time.

    What's weird is the Bible states that if an elder son dies without heirs, the next son is obligated to take the widow as a wife.

    But apparently there a bit of controversy over Prince Henry doing that because according to the Church you WEREN'T supposed to do that. (had nothing to do with King Henry VII wanting to keep Catherine's dowry, not at all) They had to get Catherine to sign that she had never done the Horizontal Mambo with Prince Arthur before he died, and was still a virgin before she got permission to remarry.

    Then when she only produce one daughter and no living sons, King Henry VIII assumed that marrying his dead brother's widow was the reason he wasn't having any (male) kids.

    Bit of a mixed message.

    They should have tried naming a daughter Arthur. I think Fate would have liked that.

    You guys really shoudl check out Fall Of Civilizations Podcast. Well researched, well presented podcast.

    His episode on Easter Island/Rapa Nui is a highlight.
    he totally deconstructs the common theory that the locals deforested their own Island which led to widespread ecological collapse. He really does a great job of helping you get a sense of what the place may have been like at its height, and it's collapse

    Osowiec Fortress, Northeast Poland, August 6, 1915. German artillery is finally in range of the Russian-held fortress and has been unleashing pounding volleys, but this day is the first that shows favorable wind conditions for gas shells, which the German guns begin firing around 4 AM. Russian defenses were manned by 500 soldiers of the 226th Infantry Regiment Zemlyansky, and 400 militia (mostly conscripts.)

    Chlorine gas is a nightmare. Grass turns black. Leaves turn yellow. Birds and insects fall out of the air, dying before they touch the ground. Soldiers describe it as making a landscape that looked like hell, and the Russians were not equipped to deal with this deadly weapon. Many had no gas masks at all, and wound water-or-urine-soaked rags around their faces. As more than 7000 German troops close in on the fortress, the highest-ranking survivor of the attacks, Sub-Lieutenant Vladimir Kotlinsky, decides with his men that the only thing left to do is charge.

    As the Germans close in, suddenly a surge of howling figures meets them in a counter-charge, and though it is only a hundred men, the German lines shatter and they instantly begin retreating, throwing their weapons down in terror and fleeing so quickly that they run into their own traps and siege trenches, at the sight that greets them; A hundred screaming Russian corpses, their flesh melting from their faces, literally coughing bits of lung and blood out as they charge, a final act of defiance that would forever after be known as the Charge of the Dead Men.

    Happy Halloweeeeeen~
