1. Obey global rules

2. Keep things related to history and its study.

2a. History, for the purposes of this board, covers pre-History and all events up to the fall of the Soviet Union. Further than that and it's considered political discussion or discussion of modern events- take it to /pol/ or /b/.

3. If lewd images must be posted, do so on spoilers. Consider if it wouldn't be better posted elsewhere.

3-a. If you're in doubt whether it's lewd enough to spoiler, err on the side of caution and do it.

GUIDELINES- not quite rules, but good to follow for good posting

1. Check the catalog before posting to see if a thread may already be available for your discussion.

1a. Avoid making threads expecting people to just do your homework for you. Show some work yourself in starting the discussion instead of just "guys what was the main reason for the fall of Sebastianism in the 19th century"

2. Be prepared to present good sources for anything you claim, especially if you come here to posit opinions you know are controversial.

3. This being 8ch, we don't want to limit what you can post about. That said, we'd like posts to be of a good quality level, and related to history. If your post contains nothing more than >IMPLYING NIGGERS HAD A CULTURE, consider if you aren't better off in /pol/.

4. If you have any problem with the moderation here, or suggestions, please post them here instead of making a thread for it (not really historical-related) or making one in whatever board about 8ch discussion is being used nowadays (I don't even know!)

In other words, don't be a dumbass. This board works fine with a semi-absent BO and a bunch of mods who delete CP bots. Don't ruin it.

(want to post banners, do so here too)

Hey /his/, long-time lurker and BO of /games/ here to shill my board. >>>/games/

Shit as /v/ may be, this board isn't simply just a /v/ alternative, it's a place for discussion of tabletop games as well. So come on over and we can have a historical game thread going too.

""We want to eventually have a resources sticky with links and suggestions of good books, podcasts, etc""

And yet here we are in the year 2015 without such a thing. Let's change this, /his/torians: post up your resources and books you've found invaluable in your quest for knowledge.

And don't be a dick about it: don't just link something random. Try and give a very brief review of it, indicate why it's good and who its target audience would be. Introductory stuff is always going to be welcome, but sometimes it can be hard to find where to go next, so help your brothers out.

A bit /pol/y /his/ has been for a while so given the topic most /pol/acks will ignore this thread so lets talk about African civilizations, I'm really interested in the Great Zimbabwe ruins and I'm wondering if anyone knows any stone built structures north of mexico? Not giant blocks but similar to the small bricks in Great Zimbabwe? I remember hearing about a place in Maine called the American Stonehenge and I'm currently looking into it.

Why haven't africans integrated into the modern world? Why are they so far behind?

>inb4 muh slavery

They sold eachother as slaves

>inb4 but they had no idea how european slavery was like

If it's called "slavery" I don't think it's very fucking good. Also if you read african texts (things fall apart) you'll find that african men were generally very abusive to their whole household.

>inb4 africa is an entire desert

Africa today is one of the richest continents in terms of natural resources

>inb4 muh nubians

A culture of people that just went north and copied egyptian culture. ""Coincidentally"" the last rulers of egypt were nubians.

>inb4 muh slavery

It did hit Africa extremely bad for centuries, no question. However, the Middle East, Asia and Europe also saw terrible events and bounced back from chaos. Not only did Africa never do that on its own, it also never had any strong civilization to begin with North Africa did, but it wasn't kangz and shiet. No doubt this played a role in why they were enslaved so often.

>inb4 but they had no idea how european slavery was like

>If it's called "slavery" I don't think it's very fucking good. Also if you read african texts (things fall apart) you'll find that african men were generally very abusive to their whole household.

There are also records of African slaves that were genuinely afraid that the white men wanted to eat them.

Was exactly my point of an African country that didn't do what you described to provide some comparison to the average one.

What makes an Emperor an "Emperor"? An Empire an "Empire"? Is it something as simple as a declaration? Does it deal with territory and titles? Why did the UK, which once held a fourth of the world's territory, never have an Emperor or an Empress? Why did Ethiopia, which was confined to Africa, call their leader an Emperor?

What are the guidelines for being considered an Emperor and an Empire by history?

I was referring to the modern period Bulgarian monarchy, but yes, the reason was that they were challenging Byzantine legitimacy as Eastern Emperors. Same with Serbia, for the short period it claimed the title.

Bulgarian doesn't even have the word kraľ like other Slavic languages do.

I've taken an interest in learning more about the Hanseatic League, which seems to be relatively unheard of in the English speaking history world. There are plenty of great sources in German but very little scholarship done in English, and most of it pretty recent. Some of the German titles have translations in English, like The German Hansa. I hear this is regarded as the single greatest source one can find in English but it's hard to find in print, much less in digital form. The only copies I can find are on Amazon for $100+.

I've gathered a couple pdfs here that I could find on Library Genesis but I don't know how good they are quality wise. Anyone got any other sources or want to discuss happy merchants with me?

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Turin Military Academy, and I’ve been involved in numerous frontal assaults at the Austrian border, and I have over 11 confirmed battles. I am trained in military strategy and I’m the top Chief of Staff in the entire Italian army. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with morale the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the pigeon post? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the front and your fortified position is being assaulted right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my commands. Not only am I extensively trained in inspiring speeches, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Royal Italian Army and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

If hitler idolized anybody, it was Mussolini for bringing fascism into Italy successfully.

It ceased when he came to power though.

He also somewhat had a fondness for Napoleon, really more of Paris and its architecture.

Considering the research on Amarna period wasn't particularly advanced back then, Hitler could have unintentionally projected anything he would have liked on Akhenaten, just like so many others did.

Still, there doesn't seem to be any indication Hitler was particularly obsessed with anything Egypt. He might have been aware of Akhenaten and seen (made-up) parallels with himself, but I doubt it was of much importance.
