I used to be rather fascinated about this booklet yet regrettably it became out to be a major unhappiness. different readers already commented at the loss of color. it truly is rather crucial for any atlas and it contributes to the knowledge, for instance optically indicating the small fragmented parts in the large empires of the past.

On most sensible of it I came upon a few blunt error! i will be able to comprehend developing such an atlas is a troublesome paintings yet please, have your editors payment what you write, in particular while promoting that publication for any such fee!

"The Ottoman empire, 962" is among the worst of all, it truly is truly alleged to be the "The Ottonian empire, 962".

Example text

Unlike the great Frankish empire, the extension of centralized political power in the new German empire was largely achieved through the Church. By 951 Otto successfully declared eighty-five ‘royal’ monasteries and all the bishoprics exempt from all secular authority. They were ‘immune’ from ducal administration. Their lands could not be sub-enfeoffed without royal authority. Rule of the Italian kingdom came when the pope invited the king to help drive out his political rival, Berengar. The campaign was quick and easy and Otto was made emperor by the pope, although Italy did not figure prominently in Otto’s political programme, as it would in that of later German emperors.

The Russians also had to contend with the Petcheneks, the dominant power on the steppes. Byzantium cultivated them—they could cut the Russian trade route down the Dnieper from Kiev, and they also threatened the Bulgarians across the Danube. The conversion of the latter to Orthodoxy in 865 promised to bring them within the Byzantine orbit, but the Bulgarian tsar, Symeon (c. 893–927), was a more able opponent than his pagan forebears. He won notable victories over the Byzantines, including the battle of Acheloos (917), and in 921, 922 and 924 advanced to the walls of Constantinople.

Parts of the Rules of Benedict, Columbanus, and of Caesarius of Arles 42 appear in conjunction in Donatus’ seventhcentury Rule for nuns at Besançon. The use of ‘mixed rules’ apparently characterized other Frankish foundations, particularly those made in Neustria and Austrasia by some reforming bishops and by the Merovingians and their court—houses such as Rebais, St Wandrille, Jumièges, Pavilly, Fleury and Fécamp. Balthild, wife of Clovis II, founded Corbie with monks from Luxeuil and royal diplomas ensured that older houses such as St Martin, Tours, and St Denis, Paris, were free from episcopal financial exactions.
