I have a few questions about cities in the medieval era starting mid 1000s, around when William the Conqueror was knocking about invading England and such.
1. What ranks were there within a city for administrative purposes? Mayor at the top, then magistrates, any others?
2. What was the most culturally diverse city in Europe at the time? I know there were a number of Spanish/Moorish cities in Iberia, but what about some in the Netherlands with French/German/Dutch populations, or even eastern Hungary, with Turkish/Hungarian/German etc. Anyone have an(y) idea(s)?
