Vlad tepes was the voivode of wallachia not a prince. (And his castle was poenari castle not bran castle)

This is what dinner was Vlad the Impaler made me think of Proverbs of Solomon 23:3 Do not crave his delicacies, for that food is deceptive. 4 Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness.

Just for the sake of clarity, the painting, "The Roses of Elegabalus" by Lawrence Alma-Tadema was painted in 1888 not 1988.

wrong. vlad the impaler impaled his enemies to scare off their forces. and it helped.

No caligula?? I must say I'm a bit disappointed 🙁. I would have thought that the mad Roman emperor who would have sex with his dinner guests wives, then tell them how they performed, then execute them would at least make the top five.

The "sultan of Persia" didn't exist at the time. Most of Persia was ruled by the Kwaresmian Turkic Sultan. The only person that was rolled into a rug with his family was the Calif who ruled Baghdad and most of south and central Iraq.

Ghengis Khan did kill his older brother, but he did it because the family were starving, after being abandoned by the wolves clan, the brothers went out hunting every day, and brought home what they had gathered, to be shared by all the family, they then saw the older brother make a kill, and ate it all himself, which had been suspected by Ghengis, so he was killed, for endangering all the family who were starving, his mother and baby sister and the other brothers were all loosing weight, except the greedy selfish brother, Ghengis was a great man to his people, and still is today,

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the psychological horror show of dining with Stalin at his dacha outside Moscow. The most steeled men were almost driven to paranoid madness at these cruel events. The video host's examples are more physically torturous, but Stalin held court on supreme mental terror.

I'd be so pissed if he started using trash instead of the word rubbish, and I'd totally lose it if he blurted out couch , drapes for god's sake sounds so la de da. All this added together with half his videos containing inaccurate information I'd explode if he called crisps chips

Much as I enjoy these I find it very hard to view the pictures much of the time and (no offence intended) but I see little reason for the narrator to occupy so much of the screen, after all its the narration which is important not so much the narrator.

Agreed. No effort on his part whatsoever, and no effort on the part of his staff to correct him. Now that linguistics and classics are looked down upon as "useless," people end up looking like buffoons to literati in such videos.

To be fair the tickets to attend the Borgia's dinner parties helped bail out the national debt, Something that had largely gone untreated by the "Oh so pious" cardinals they also paid for building up hospitals and food handout to the poor along with orphanages. Whereas those cardinals had previously eaten quite well as peasants starved. Also, the popes family didn't only look on upon the orgy they actually judged performance. The Borgia's may have been ruthless and power hungry but they were better for the average peasant. Had Rodrigo succeeded in his ambitions Italy might not have been ruled by Austria and Spain for the next several hundred years. Lucrezia was also far saner than her brother, Cesare who was going mad due to syphilis and had killed Rodrigo's intended successor his nephew. Something Rodrigo appears to have never forgiven Cesare for.

Wow wow wow, smarty pants, cand you please present straight facts or you make your own stories? Vlad the impaler didn't kill weekly, old or sickly men, he gathered all the known thiefs and criminals , and the nobbles that he kill were the one that betrayed the country for years, the nobbles didn't want to fight for Independence from the ottomans, they just wanted to take the money from poor peasants, keep part of the money and give the rest to the ottomans. Please revise this video! I'm know in doubt about other facts that you present.

Well, not exactly all power. But women had a lot of say in matters, because they had many roles and responsibilities in Viking society.

Oh how the danes (anglo saxons) lament when the swedes arrived. And yes, The current queen is still a relative of Wilhelm and thus norse. UK has not had a native king since Vortigern (perhaps, depending on sources) Nooner speaks about what they did that was befeficial to the world. They abolished slavery in favor of thralldom in 600 ad as the first major counrty to do so. (thrall is indentured servants with salary that can eventually buy themselves free,,, but likely not.)
