    Based on what you have explained, attacking too early was a mistake. However the real problem seems to have been a lack of discipline, co-ordination, command and control. For example, even if the vanguard had attacked too soon and retreated. The retreating troops could have drawn the now disorganised English into the core Scottish forces. Presumably the fundamental problem being that the forces were loyal to individual barrons instead of a King.

      and if you compare the power and privileges English nobles held to the power and privileges the French nobles held you would Definity now why French nobles of the time rarely revolted against their kings because French nobles where free to operate their own mines glassworks forges and mint their own coins collect taxes in the land they owned as well as fight their own wars and expand their domains and developed their own lands building new villages cities and towns and while they are at it they can collect land rent and trade etc. and paid no taxes to the king and they can build castles while French kings where expected to survive on the income from the royal domain which was fabulously rich compared to other French areas while English nobles where only allowed to use the land they owned as business which meant they can only collect rent and trade and they were obliged to pay taxes to the English crown and perform military service for the English king and to avoid military service they had to pay as well the scutage not just the land tax they paid before and the rent they received from the serfs was affected by the laws that English kings had so basically 25000 pounds that some English kings received had received was more valuable than it seems because it holds more gold in each coin than many currencies of the time so 25000 annually means 150000 annually and dont forget county militias and livies can only be drafted by the order of the king through the shiref so the livies in this battle where due to the kings permision not someone else and the kings litenants had vast power this is why many english nobles wanted hight offices in the government becouse it will generate more hight salaries

      @Los Lobos if you've left why do I keep getting messages from you?
      Your ignorance is now showing, there is a difference between fealty and homage. A man could swear fealty to many overlords but homage to only one. The one he swore homage to he had to carry out his feudal duties to. But that homage had limitations, as King John found out as the barons told him. They reminded him that their feudal duties only applied in England and not France, where John was a mere tenant in chief. These men did not gave to serve John outside of England and thus could not be made outlaw. It has to be noted that many of these barons had sworn fealty for their lands in France to the French king in all matters save any where the French king was going against England and had sworn the reverse to the King of England. Thus making themselves exempt from wars in France for either side against the other which makes them immune to become outlaw.

    • Neil of Longbeck
      Neil of Longbeck 15 днів тому

      @Los LobosI thought that you weren't going to respond, but in your childishness here you are again. As stated previously the act of homage to an overlord could not be forsworn. If you did you committed a felony, putting you outside the protection of the law. In other words you became an outlaw and any man could kill you without fear. This one one of those facts that destroy your feeble arguments.

The Plantagenet kings of England were proud Englishmen. Henry II has the Gesta Regum Anglorum and Dover Castle, John I has Wulfstann and Corfe wine, Henry III has weatminster ans names his son after anglo-Saxon Saint, Edward I has Glastonbury....list goes on.

    Quote about King David I of Scotland
    "Few kings more than David I deserve the reputation as “maker” of his kingdom. Although he is overshadowed in popular memory by his descendant, the later “saviour” of Scotland, Robert Bruce, it was David who laid the foundations of the medieval Scottish monarchy and set in motion the changes that created the kingdom that vied with England for mastery of the British Isles."
    - 'David I: The King Who Made Scotland' by book author Richard Oram

      @Croutonium very true. King Philip II of Macedon did allow Alexander to have enough advantages to defeat his domestic Greek rivals and later enhance/upgrade the army to fight Persia in the coming conflicts. Literally reshape the Hellenistic world, and some thought Philip be the thirteenth Greek God had he not been assassinated. Same could be almost said about Frederick The Great when he inherited his father's well trained army for Prussia.

The battle of Zara in 1346 was a massive fight between 30-55 000 soldiers (16-25 000 Venetians, 20-30 000 Hungarians and Croatians) and included naval forces (30 Venetian galleys bombed the attackers and then landed behind their back). And how many lesser known battles thorough Africa and are Asia still to be told! Hope you guys will do these topics some day.

    Major problem of Stephen's reign is that he was too full of mercy and chivlarly when it came to dealing with his opponents and letting them go free when they were in his power, instead of setting an example and acting ruthlessly by imprisoning, exilinf or executing them as traitors and rebels. It what his uncle would have done in his place.

    "It was the twenty-fourth evening of December, the eve of the winter solstice--the eve of the birth of Mithras; and quite soon now, in camps and forts wherever the Eagles flew, men would be gathering to his worship. In the outposts and the little frontier forts the gatherings would be mere handfuls, but in the great Legionary Stations there would be full caves of a hundred men. Last year, at Isca, he had been one of them, newly initiated at the bull-slaying, the brand of the Raven Degree still raw between his brows."

    Channels like these remind me of the prime days of the History Channel, before it turned into alien conspiracies and people sorting through shipping containers of garbage.

    Makes sense. You want to wait until they're hungry and demoralized. However, his Amy may have been hungrier, which may have forced his hand.

    Ironic that David I lost the battle. But he ended up getting most of what he wanted in the end anyway.

    This is to me how 'news' really should be reported. Calmly, succinctly and strangely with character and depth without being overtly political.

    Explaining /why/ Matilda and Stephen both felt they had legitimate claims is fundamental to the whole Anarchy, arguably the first English Civil War, well before Charles I, and should be /first/, not later in the video out of sync. IIRC prior to Henry's death members of his court agreed when /he named Matilda as his heir/. After he died they reneged on their oaths and switched alliance to Stephen. Cue civil war aka The Anarchy.
