revised Could Margaret Beaufort have been responsible for killing of the Princes in the Tower?
This question probably can't be answered definitively. I "weakened" it by making it a possiblity.

comment Was Charles V opposed to commoners learning?
What leads you believe this? What is the context of this question? Is it something he said or did?

comment Unemployed people in ancient Rome
I fleshed out the question in paragraphs 3 and 4, and narrowed the time as of the second century B.C. (after the Punic Wars), and voted to reopen the question in its current form.

comment In Civil War Reenactments why do people walk across the battlefield
Is there anything "unsafe" about the e.g cannonballs? I'm assuming that they are made of paper mache or some similar material that wouldn't hurt anyone that they came into contact with?

comment How much did it cost to maintain Gustavus Adolphus' army? How much of it was paid by Richelieu?
Great response to an interesting question. Hmmm, 2 percent of France's budget versus one quarter of Sweden's. Meaning that Sweden's economy was 8 percent the size of France's. If Sweden was a great power, it was clearly "punching above its weight."
