...Since I didn't know how this video was made, I assumed that the timeline was linear
and based the time calibration on Napoleon's Campaigns (apogee in 1812 at 02:33) and Hitler's invasion of Poland (1939 at 03:04).

This looks to be interesting. Will have to share with my history teacher. Thanks for posting.
If there is one constant about Europe it is that the country’s borders that comprise it are not..
It needs to specify where they speak Austrian-—to help Barack out.
Restore the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
Great stuff, and thanks for posting.
Failed to show the loss of France to England at Agincourt on Friday Oct 25th, 1415.
Someone really thinks the US can fix this?
They are going to fight, steal and do what they have always done.
Not one postage stamp to stop it.
Of course I don’t have a free phone so my vote does not count.
Butkus was Lithuanian
One of the best.
War to end all wars- world safe for democracy - self determination
The result of Henry's campaigns in France was that he forced Charles VI to make him rightful heir to the French throne.
However, Henry V died several months before Charles VI did.
Henry VI was only a few months old, and Charles VII, the son of Charles VI, successfully contested the succession - with the help of St. Joan of Arc.
Agincourt was very exciting, but it ultimately changed nothing.
Heard that before.
He would have been King Henry V of England and Henry II of France, just as King James I of England was also King James VI of Scotland.

But most fascinating of all were the tiny principalities which became modern Germany.
fascinating. note crimea:
owned long time by the mongols !!
and then pretty much forever by the russians. not going to reverse that.
This is why Washington, our forst PResident, said to stay out of European affairs.
The fault lines amongst the people in Europe are deep and varied,and unknowable to us.
For one hundred years, since World War I, we have been linked to Europe’s foibles, at great cost of human lives and treasure.
So cool, thanks.
The animated history of Poland
Perhaps you meant of Lithuanian descent.
I did indeed - but among most Chicagoans, if you’re second generation, and sometimes beyond, that’s pretty much how you refer to each other. Just ask the folks from Beverly and Mount Greenwood who were at the South Side Irish parade last weekend.
Yak shimash. Mizoomish pro Polski?
Neither do I.
Anyway, Poland has had a fascinating history. They’ve been over-run from every direction and keep coming back. They destroyed the Teutonic Knights with an inferior cavalry and a bunch of villagers carrying wooden spears. I recently finished reading “Poland” by James Michener. Good reading.
a great resource; to keep handy as a visual historical reference; thanks
“Theyve been over-run from every direction and keep coming back.”
They stopped the Turks at Vienna, and more recently tried to grab a piece of the newly-created Soviet Union in 1920.
It seems as though I have held the wrong attitude about that whole "African-American" thing. My bad, huh?
I don’t understand where people get all the energy to have all these wars, invasions, overthrows, and revolutions. I just sit here and I’m tired.
“They stopped the Turks at Vienna”
Yeah, I should have thought that one. They might have saved western civilization. To come too think of it, now is when we really need Sobieski.
“To come too think of it, now is when we really need Sobieski.”
Poland’s faith keeps it safe from Islam; they’re OK in that department. Their people don’t hate the Church.
Hey, if you want me to refer to you as “African-American”, I’ve got no problem with that.
Looks like they need an update.
The Battle of the Ice on April 5, 1242, at Lake Peipus was a pivotal point for their defeat and in all history. The Russian Orthodox Christians defeated these monsters in 1242 ...thankfully.
The animation alone was worth seeing that. Thanks for sharing that!
