comment Why are many African nations poor?
-1 Because you did not see the Elephant in the continent. Namely, Western European countries occupied Africa, despite the continent having hosted and hosting rich civilizations (who did have agriculture and farming - Ethiopia anyone?)

comment Why are many African nations poor?
-1 (-2 if I could). How come one mentions recent history of Africa and does not even mention the word "colonialism". The "causes" invoked are mere consequences/answers to classic and neo-colonialism. I am astonished O.O

Add to that the Hittites and their mention of the Ahhiyawa (Achaeans). See e.g. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achaeans_%28Homer%29#Hittite_documents

comment What happened to Frederick II's library?
You might want to check the Historia Diplomatica Friderici Secundi. Sadly my Latin is too bad to profit from the online versions, and I could not find a translation (for free).
