Thread: Pre-1492 Websites

  1. #1
    Since the 1492-1792 forum has a thread started about good websites for that period, I thought I'd start a thread here for history websites that are concerned with any period before 1492. So please post them !

    http://www.byzantium1200.com/ is an interesting historically-related site. It has computer reconstructions of many famous buildings of medieval Constantinople before its sack by the Crusaders in 1204.

    http://crusades.idbsu.edu/Byzantium/

    - another interesting site on the Byzantines during the crusades period

    http://www.bway.net/~halsall/byzantium.html

    - this page is a more Academic site regarding the Byzantine Empire.

    http://battle1066.com/

    - about probably the most well-known English date in history, the year of the conquest. An interesting scenario could be based on a Saxon or Scandinavian England, where Harold Godwinson or Haraald Hardrada had won.

    http://www.templarhistory.com/

    - all about the Knights of the Temple

    http://www.palais-des-papes.com/

    - all about the palais-des-papes, or the Pope's palace, home of the Popes in s France during the middle ages for a short time

    Old signature did not meet forum rules. So after 6 years of using it I was forced to change it to this one

    Sometime in the sixties a German Historical Atlas was published in Sweden with a Swedish index. It may provide detailed info for what you want, especially since it was German in origin.

    Do you have a specific question.

    hre maps

    jag behöver bara veta hur gränserna ser ut, mellan alla hertigdömen och biskopsstäder och sånt.. oftast ser man alla länder i europa men hre är bara blankt eller med endast de två tre största furstedömena.

    Jag skulle iofs kunna fråga om biskopsstäderna och de territorier som hörde dit... Hur självständiga var dessa områden i förhållande till påvestaten, kan man säga (på spelspråk) att de var ungefär "vassalstater" eller "minors" till påven?

    OK, det visar den boken mer än väl. Den visar också religion, språk, juridiskt och kulturellt inflytande. Du vet hur noggranna tyskarna är ;-)

    Den heter Atlas till Världshistorien (IIRC) och gavs ut av Svenska Bokförlaget på sextiotalet. Kolla med ett stadsbibliotek (dom kan säkert låna in den), den finns säkert inte i bokhandeln.

    Jag skulle iofs kunna fråga om biskopsstäderna och de territorier som hörde dit... Hur självständiga var dessa områden i förhållande till påvestaten, kan man säga (på spelspråk) att de var ungefär "vassalstater" eller "minors" till påven?
    Biskopsdömena, flera var lika stora eller större än de hertigdömen som finns i spelet, hade stort politiskt inflytande i HRE, som styrdes via en riksdag ungefär som i Sverige. Dessutom var tre av dom elektorer, dvs de valde nästa kejsare.

    Eftersom det var ett gammalt stridäpple mellan påven och kejsaren, vem som var deras chef och kejsarmakten förlorade, utgår jag från att påven var deras chef, alltså att de var vasall-stater, för att inte säga var en del av påvedömet. I spelet "A Mighty Fortress" (IIRc tidiga 1500-talet) är det så.

    Lycka till,

    Johan

    What exactly do you mean by "antiquity". It would help if you specified what period you wanted sites for.

    This has almost anything you want... leader names, maps, you name it.

    Philosophy of History

    Truly, a treasure trove of information! Those of you making scenarios might find some of the information useful.
