comment Were Roman emperors officially considered kings of Egypt?
This answer contradicts itself: it claims that the emperor "added the land to the Empire of the Roman People" and then it says that "he treated Egypt as his own private and dynastic possession". So, the empire of the Roman people or the private possession? Also the fact that Egypt was considered a part of the emperor's domain does not automatically mean it was a kingdom: there were emperors's and senate's provinces, in those which were near the periphery the emperor exercised direct control. There were many emperor's provinces besides Egypt.

comment Ethnic Germans in Russian service in Poland
-1. It as Peter the Great from whom the prevalence of Germans started. Also this does not belong to the French who were not employed in the same number as Germans.

comment What are the safeguards in the German constitution of 1949 against dictatorship?
@Felix Goldberg I think it is intended not against dictatorship as such, but against possibility of involving Germany in an aggressive war. This is because it was alleged that Germany's participation in the both world wars was motivated by private interests of the military-industrial bourgeoisie who wanted to profit due to military spendings, a process similar to how the US now spends on their military more money than all other countries in the world combined in the absence of a direct threat to their territory.

comment Did the Romans have winter uniforms?
Roman state never relied on the divinity of their rulers, lol. "Divus" means "god-like", not "god". No emperor ever was called "Deus" ("god").

@RI Swamp Yankee they were under occupation. Similarly France was occupation, but Britain did not demand war reparations from her. Also as I said, the British could easily consider the war declaration void because it was not signed by the regent as required.
