    Why is the name ''Roman'' common in slavic countries?

    Was it originally a noble name later taken by a larger mass of people (And if so, where does it originate)? Does it have anything with Russia seeing itself as the third Rome? Does it originate from byzantines who took refuge in the slavic lands after the turkic conquest? Is it just a coincidence?

Iraq: The almost eternal turmoils and attacks. Libya: It probably cannot...

    Looking for names of big movements in history

    I'm really curious and interested in reading about big movements in history. How did they start? Why some of them failed? And why others are still existent until today? How can one person singly-handed found a movement, then an army and a state? I'm just looking for names, whether they...

    American countries abolishing slavery before Britain

    There is a common myth that the British were the first to abolish slavery in the Americas. Britain passed the Emancipation Act in 1833, and it came into effect in 1834 in the form of the Apprenticeship, and slaves did not achieve full freedom in the British Empire until 1838. So, which...

    Why did some European countries unify early and others did until very late?

    Portugal unified in the high middle ages, whilst England and Scotland did so in the early middle ages. Norway and Denmark were perhaps the earliest examples, but why did this pattern not emerge uniformly? Could a united Germany have emerged before 1871? Let's say a strong Prussian king or an...

    Which medieval rulers in these regions are more or less able? Scotland - Kenneth MacAlpin and David I seemed able, but kings like Malcolm I got too unrun by the English. I know that homage to English kings existed before his reign, but then it was the weaker kings who allowed this to happen...

    Should the West limit ties with Arab countries?

    We don't need their oil since we have shale gas, and we can spend on renewable energies. And they clearly don't like us, despite coming to live here..... Wouldn't it be a viable win-win situation for us to limit ties/access to the Arab world?

    Question for people living in the former Yugoslavian countries

    Is there a major nostalgic vibe for the days of SFR Yugoslavia before the 1990s and the years where Tito ruled Yugoslavia? In other words, do the older people of your society see Tito's Yugoslavia as the "good ole' days" and see it as a better time before what happened in the 90s?
