    Translation of Swiss German words and phrases in the video:
    nei - no
    chuchichästli - kitchen cupboard (this is what every Swiss will have you say to prove that you'll pronounce it wrongly)
    Grüezi - Greetings (formal)
    Schafseckel, die Berner - balls of sheep / sheep testicles, these Bernese
    Hoffentlich zerrts üch in mistzetter innä - hopefully you'll get dragged into a manure spreader (we asked a friend of our from Uri how he would utter his contempt towards the Bernese)

      Way too many people still think the study of history is just recounting past events and nothing more. But yeah, that's not what it is at all. To study history is to study humanity. It's always important to understand the people behind the events and everything leading up to that. It's all about learning from ourselves so that we can spot similarities in our own time and in the future. Pisses me off that some people today are dedicated to suppressing certain historical topics.

    I really love this animation style. It feels like a picture book/box art of model kits coming to life. I bet as well when you get all the animations made for a particular "character" it gets real easy to animate as well, perhaps not easier but it would sure save time for a one man crew.

    By calculation,1 lance is 10 men,100 lances are 1 company(1,000 men). So Charles the Bold has 24,000 men(24 companies) despite being a duchy and during period after Medieval time. Impressive!! Really he could take on to attack French or Holy Roman Emperor's domain,it's really sad that he lost against the Swiss,he could create a kingdom and balance between France and HRE.

    It's so difficult to keep track of all those cities, alliances, leagues, duchies, nations, city states, or any other combination of people with weapons and relations between them. I've never heard of most of these, and some of these entities don't make sense to me at all. How could Vaud (whatever kind of entity it is. The auto dictionary thinks it's a spelling mistake), can be only a part of Savoy (again, whatever kind of entity it is)?
    It's all very interesting and very well-made, but I'm just so confused, and this is the second time I've watched it.

I have some ancestors who fought, and some died, in the battles of Morgarten, Murten, Murder Night, Sempacht, etc. I'm addicted. I'll have to peruse this channel. I also have a Tschudi ancestor named Rudolf who pulled up a fir tree and killed nine men with it. Whoa! His name was "the lange Riebing." I don't know what a Riebing is. Anybody here know? He was called this due to his height. Thank you!

      @Yulus Leonard Depends on when and where... In the Battle of Mohács (1526) for example, according to the University of Eötvös Loránd, Hungary (and small partly Bohemia) had 13 000 cavalry, including 4 000 heavy cavalry (men-at-arms) and 9 000 light cavalry (hussars). The rest was infantry (partly foreign mercenaries), with a significant number of arquebusiers and 85 guns. So the Ferrari example is quite an exaggeration... Cavalry, especially heavy cavalry was very important in the High and Late Middle Ages. As I know, in the Battle of Agincourt (1415), France had 10 000 mounted and dismounted men-at-arms.

      @Yulus Leonard They could, they had some, but not much and used it for reconaissance mainly. Everyone has to pay for his own personnal equipment anyway and there was a rural nobility and an urban patriciat that were certainly rich enough to afford horses, plates etc. They made money with trade you know.

      @Imo Alcuaz It's a very common misconception from people who don't know Switzerland :)
      Even if most of the country is covered by mountains, a good third of it is quite flat, and obviously that's where most people live. Grandson and Morat are at the foot of the mountains but not IN the mountains, it is still the plain.
      So the old Swissdid have horses, they had a mounted nobility like everyone else in Europe at the time. But they didn't have much of it so they would use it mainly for reconnaissance. Because most of their armies were made of peasant levies, but also because they were aware that infantry was the reason of their success, therefore the pike was a prestigious arm and some rich people would fight on foot contrary to their neighbors.
