Sir_Viriato said:O Reino de Portugal (Kingdom of Portugal) was ruled in 1300 by the King D.Diniz: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiroinis-P.jpg
The queen was: D. Isabel of Aragon: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiro:Rainha_Santa_Isabel_-_D._Dinis.jpg
The lords or generals were, besides the king, mainly their sons, legitimate and illegitimate:
Crown Prince: D. Afonso; Well i think that we can say that in Portugal "Lord" can be translated to "Dom" which most often is shortened to "D." Portuguese royal heirs where also called "Infante" someting like royal son; Infante D. Afonso could be more accurate. http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiro:AfonsoIV-P.jpg
The only bastard legitimated: D. Afonso Sanches
Bastard son: D. João Afonso (Grand Master of the Order of Aviz)
Grand Master of Tempars Order in Portugal: Grão Vasco Fernandes; The native name was Vasco Fernandes, but he were most known as Grão Vasco (Grão=Grand; obviously related to the position in the order)
The portuguese royal flag at 1300 was: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/FicheiroortugueseFlag1248.svg
Thank you for the information. The lords will certainly come in handy. I'm not sure that the Templars will be included for Portugal, only because that would necessitate incorporating them for the French and other kingdoms as well.
As for translations, I'm thinking only some of the troops will have translated names, and others will not.
Cèsar de Quart said:Good to know, Portugal has always been a great unknown for me.
Lately has been released, coinciding with Saint George's day, also patron saint of Catalonia and Aragon, a book called "the armies of Jaume I", a very well documented book with extensive image factor. For instance:
The knight with the golden "spots" (bezants) on red field is Guillem Ramon de Montcada, who is about to die at the battle of Portopí, in Mallorca, year 1229, while king Jaume was charging the moorish troops. He'd eventually take the island and then Valencia. There's a movie coming out soon, with Tim Roth as king Pere the Catholic, father of Jaume the Conqueror.
Well, take care, and let's wait for the release.
Great image there; I will certainly be looking at that when starting to design Argonese uniforms.
Fiskerlord said:yep lets just wait for the release.. BUT I CAN'T wait... this mod stands out in some way I cant say.. its just looks compleate.. like lotr mod and the last days, sea dogs and alot others.. (no bad agianst the other mod's) but yes this is worth waiting for,.. I hope
God speed m8
I thank you for the compliment. I will do my best to make it worth the wait, but I can promise it won't be your typical pure OSP items with Native renamed kind of mod.
Sam Gillis said:hey man this mod looks very promising
but i was wondering since your mod is based around 1300 is there any change you are going to add flanders
Excellent question. Flanders has always been one of my major fascinations with the year 1300, and I think in central Europe it's one of the most important subjects.
Flanders qualifies as a small kingdom, but it's the small kingdom I want to add the most. As I said a while ago, though, adding one small kingdom would open up the debate to add more, and which ones "deserve" to be represented.
I've decided that for its current release, it would not be a playable faction. However, Flanders will be represented in two of the playable historical battles that will be included in the mod.
I was just having a look at this very interesting mod when I saw the poll. The details of it should have been on the page 19. I haven't found them. But, anyway, I found a debate regarding Moravia and its territory and influences and so on...
They are on page 19, just towards the bottom. It's near the bottom third of the page, Response #282, if I'm not mistaken. That should give you the details you were looking for.
tommmy said:Ottis said:The Kingdom of Bohemia was twice as big. It included Moravia, Chebsko and Lausitz and that time as well!
But yeah your point that Teutonic Order was huge is correct.Ottis said:What the... Great Moravia ended in 900, we're talking about 1300 which is 400 years later. Moravia at that time was one of the parts of the Bohemian Kingdom. I have no idea what you mean by the division. Nothing like this happened and Moravia was NO WAY by any kind of influence of Hungary.Barry_bon_Loyale said:According to what I read, the majority of Moravia went under the influence of the Kingdom of Hungary (which is included in the mod). The former Great Moravia was divided among Bohemia, Poland, with the majority going to the Kingdom of Hungary.
Again, that is the size of Bohemia according to EurAtlas, which has been my source. It may not be a perfect map, but so far it's been the most accurate and reliable source I've found.
Most of what was said is indeed correct. There was a kingdom of Great Moravia which vanished after the arrival of Hungarian tribes in the 10th century. Also a part of this kingdom (current Slovakia and a part of Ukraine) was incorporated into the forming kingdom of Hungary during the 11th and the 12th century. From this point of view, yes, the Slavonic tribes were of influence for the forming Kingdom of Hungary. On the other side nothing like division of Great Moravia ever happened. The kingdom of Great Moravia ceased to exist mostly due to the riots following the death of the last king and uncertain line of succession along with the arrival of the aggressive nomadic Hungarian tribes and the troubles with always problematic western borders with what would become The Holy Roman Empire.
And the term 'Moravia' is referring to a part of the Lands of the Bohemian Crown (Bohemian Kingdom, Duchy of Moravia and Silesia) as formed in 1085. To classify the Duchy of Moravia as independent is rather incorrect, though. It is true that the Duchy always (or at least most of the time) had its own Duke yet this duke was always loyal to the king of the Kingdom of Bohemia and often it was his family (after 1611 the title was automatically granted to the king himself). So, no, Kingdom of Bohemia was not twice as big, but, yes, the territory under the rule of the king of Bohemian kingdom was twice as big (including Moravia and after 1368 Silesia as well). Also, not to forget, the Kingdom of Bohemia made part of The Holy Roman Empire so it was under the sovereignty of the emperor.
Thank you for the details. Yes, it is something of a moot point now, but historical discussion is always welcome, so thanks.
Sorry I haven't responded lately, but I have been very busy (and yes, the good kind of busy). Cheers.
