comment What is the origin of the black/devil riders?
@Rajib the following is an excerpt: They first appeared in Germany in the sixteenth century. The riders developed a special tactic known as caracole, which allowed them to effectively bombard infantry units with constant weapons fire.

comment How did an input of resources in 16th century Spain contribute to inflation?
Oh so because the money was made out of silver getting new silver is analogous to contemporary states printing more and more paper currency

+1 great answer. I'm a senior in high school and I'm really starting to get interested in history. What do you recommend to read instead of textbooks? I know that there are many books on specific topics but I think it might be a good idea to get a general feel for history from the textbooks before I read about more detailed topics.

@SamuelRussell I looked in the index and didn't find too much information about what exactly they meant by the social classes. I added a couple excepts from the book that might be helpful.

comment What is the Holy Roman Empire?
How much control would the Emperor actually have? Would he be able to merge the military forces of all the states in the Empire? I realize this may be very different in different time periods, but I am focusing more on 15th-17th century.

comment What is the Holy Roman Empire?
@FelixGoldberg I think the confusion is coming out of me not completely understanding the HRE. I was assuming that the Holy Roman Emperor automatically becomes the king of Austria, so if Alfonso won the election I thought he would replace the rightful heir of the Austrian throne, and that's why I said it probably wouldn't happen peacefully. But I just realized that that doesn't make any sense. I guess if Alfonso was elected he would have had some authority, but he wouldn't replace any German kings as far as I understand now. (please correct me if I'm wrong with anything).

@FelixGoldberg so for example if Alfonso X would have won the election, would he have taken over the territories of the contemporary have automatically taken authority over Austria and the other Germanic States? I doubt that would happen peacefully
