Actually, here is the thing and why I wrote it.
First, it was Danzig and it was part of the K. of Poland. 1.04
Now, its Danzig and its part of the HRE (Germany).
See, that's how a lie gets twisted into truth, first you just do a little change and then you build on the little lie, to build a bigger lie. That's how the 'myth' of German DANZIG got started. Baby steps. And it ingrains the garbage notions into the PI community that somehow this province was legally German.
As for whoever said the that it was settled by Germans and named after Gothe, whatever dude, the original fort was established in 980 and the City was founded in 997 by the King of Poland in, sure it was settled by Germans. During the Teutonic occupation (1308-1454) when the Teutonic Order was busy purging the local non-German population. The stories were so horrendous that even the Pope had to step in and curtail the TO's murderous behavior and had to threaten them with excommunication.
So, no, I don't think that I will back down on this issue. First, PI made it Danzig, now they've made it part of HRE. What, next they'll make it German in 1.06? Where do you draw the line?
So my accusation of Historical Revisionism stands.
Again, KNOCK IT OFF
