    Europe in 1815: we won't have a major war in at least 100 years!
    Europe in 1914: we got so close...

    Imagine showing a modern map to someone back then! I'd love to know all the questions they'd ask.
    Obviously one of the main things is german reunification, but if they ask why Germany is so much smaller than the German Confederation, then you'd have to explain 2 World Wars. And Italian Reunification would be a big point too, I suppose. I don't know if the Ottomans were called the "sick man of Europe" back then, but if not you'd have to explain why they lost their whole empire. I think they'd be extremely shocked about Russia. Sure, maybe they'd understand an independent Poland and Finland, but there are so many more countries in eastern Europe now. One of the questions would probably be asking why Ireland exists without northern Ireland. I suppose Austria would also be shocking. I don't know if their empire was as unstable as Austria-Hungary, but if not then you'd have to explain a lot.
    Sometimes I wish historians had a time machine to go back and show this map to someone back then and find out all the questions they'd have to ask.

      Up until the mid 1800s Austria was, in competition with France, the most important power in mainland Europe. In 1815 it was pretty stable. It was the rise of nationalism, later in the century, that would make it increasingly unstable. In fact nationalism is probably the main force driving the change seen in these 2 maps...

    1870 (just before the Franco-prussian war)
    1774 (just before the American and French revolutions)
    1750 (just before the 7 years war)
    1700 (just before the war of Spanish succession)

      ​@Esteban Outeiral Dias Really, mozzarella and tomato sauce on bread. That is an Italian creation and the origins are easily traced. Greece had flat breads. Pasta did not exist in Arab countries. Pasta can be traced back a thousand year on the Italian peninsula and possibly longer. The Italian peninsula not only produced the Roman Empire they had the Renaissance which gave Europe their culture. It is so common for people to try to alter the history of Italy and detract from it's history, that there is phrase for it. I won't state it here for it may be taken as an insult.

      @Usama Ayech Yes but humanity has always been moving in an extremely fast pace. Back then writing was seen as "fast paced", then letters, then messenger systems, then post mail etc... things were shocking to the people back then as well and so they thought the end of the world was coming soon but it did not come. The same thing is happening now. We keep seeing technology move fast so we worry that the end times are coming etc...but they most likely will not be coming as soon as we think and at the end of the day, again, only God knows when.

    I know is an old video but here are some fixed mistakes:
    Morocco, Spain and Portugal changed territories since 1815
    Spain took some small territory close to Ceuta in Morocco in 1860 Africa War.
    Portugal and Spain had some micro-disputed territories normally called fresnos or contiendas, all this tiny gaps where finally fixed in 1926. And we can't forget of Couto Misto micronation.

    My Great Grandma or Great Great was born in 1830 or 1830 in Ostfriesland (East Frisia) And my family got its roots in America around 1850. So my family left before Germany was unified.
    It was quite interesting to learn this. And this is confirmed through both family stories and online death records. She died in 1920 at the age of 90. Damn that would be a fucking wild life. Witnessing the German unification, some small wars, and even WWI. She was an Amazing woman and she has passed down some stories to our family. And thanks to her my family lives in America today.

      @Hat for a cat Saying that I am writing a paragraph is a bit hypocritical. Well my name is in Swedish so figuring that out isn't too hard, is it? The reason that matters is because you really glorify the polish siege of Moscow when it doesn't really matter historically.

    • Nice Guy
      Nice Guy 2 жыл бұрын

      @Hat for a cat 1. It isn't about that, it is about defeating Russia and succeding in holding up an army in the Russian terrain because of how enormous it is.
      If you read anything about the armies that was closest to defeating Russia Sweden is almost always brought up, and that is just a fact, and i know that through reading about history, the Polish conquest is not nearly as known.
      2. It cerainly did result in long lasting political consequences, through that war, Russia was able to rise to a major European power, taking the Swedish Empires place as the biggest power in Europe, if it was not for that war, Russia would probably not be close to anything it is today, remember that the Great Northern War was kind of the last blow for the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth. There are still Swedish speaking towns in Ukraine aswell.
      3. I am not undermining Poltava, The Swedish Empire did lose the war and it did fall of the place it had as a major power.
      4. Saying that the siege of Moscow had long lasting effects is just
      ridiculous, sure it had some effects but the struggles between Poland-Lithuania and Russia are much older than the siege.

      @Nice Guy and I can easily tell you're a swede, and what does it matter?
      I don't feel like writing a paragraph in response, so I'll just say it like that:
      1. Charles XII *nearly* taking Moscow wasn't as influential as you think it was. It definitely isn't nearly as known as the other examples, actually I even don't think, that it's more known than the Polish conquest.
      2. It certainly *did* result in lasting political consequences.
      3. You're undermining poltava
      4. If we're trying to determine which event had more "results" I'd say it's the polish taking moscow, seeing as this later resulted in long-standing Poland-Russia struggles and this would lead to the annexation of Poland, and world-wide consquences, such as tensions and unrest (polish uprisings and emigrations, later strengthened by the happenings of the year of 1848) which would later have consequences lasting to this *exact* day.

      @Hat for a cat I can so easily tell you are polish, why do you think that nobody knows about poland siezing moscow? Becuase it didn't result in any thing at all, so nobody cares about it, and the famous ones are Charles XII, Napoleon and Hitler, the reason for the two first being famous is because it was very successful at first against the Russian Army, but then they starved and froze to death, the last one is because it was the leargest military operation ever.
