comment When did Jews achieve total emancipation in Britain?
No need to apologize; just do the preliminary research (check wikipedia which answers your question for legal and political equality) and for the love of all that is holy if you reference something you've read, provide a citation. If the mysterious source you're withholding was authored by a prominent scholar and published in BBC History magazine then I'll proceed differently than I would if the unknown source is an Arabic Neo-Nazi cultist.

comment When did Jews achieve total emancipation in Britain?
Trivial search in google; first response is wikipedia which states, "They were followed within a few years by Henry de Worms as Lord Pirbright and Sydney Stern as Lord Wandsworth; while in 1890 all restrictions for every position in the British Empire, except that of monarch, were removed, the offices of Lord High Chancellor and of Lord Lieutenant of Ireland being thrown open to every British subject without distinction of creed."

comment What was the reaction to English monarchs using the title “King of France”?
@JMVanPelt makes a very good point; the title frequently remains with the monarch even when the monarch lacks the ability to effectively exercise the title. The title is passed as part of the patrimony; governance is not. This is one of the reasons monarchies ultimately fail.

I believe that they also kept the title "Defender of the Faith" after they left the faith. Titles for monarchs are understood to be ceremonial and have no relevance beyond the capability of the holder to project power. Take for example, Emperor Norton

comment Why didn't the ancient Egyptians conquer an empire?
The traditional answer is that Egyptians believed that if they died outside Egypt they were denied any afterlife.

comment Why didn't the ancient Egyptians conquer an empire?
They were one of the world spanning empires of their day. Please update your question to show that you've done research and to explain why your preliminary research wasn't helpful. Based on your research, why don't you think Egypt had an Empire?

comment What is the difference between SAM, ASM, AAM and SSM missiles?
This question is out of scope for this forum, but I suspect the confusion arises from a misunderstanding about what a missile - missiles involve precision guidance. Missiles targeting aerial targets have to be much faster (mach speed), and need to deal with target evasion. Missiles targeting surface targets rarely encounter evasion.

Agreed; my understanding is that phlebotomy has undergone a renaissance. I believe that we now recognize that it has a stimulating effect on the immune system.

comment What is known about the censuses taken by Augustus?
@LauriPietarinen - You are not contradicting wikipedia; FDB meant to convey irony. The truth is that questions that wikipedia answers are out of scope for H:SE (see How to Ask). I'm want to thank you for asking the question and I'm going to edit the question in the hope of re-opening it.
