@Mark C. Wallace Tsarist Russia also suffered from a lot of deadly famines. It was not command-driven.

@user5001 they definitely thought they were in republic after Heraclius as well. There was no contradiction between republic, empire and regnum at the time. Romans called their state "republic" even at the time of the Roman rexes. And the term "republica orbis" continued to be used for the whole Christian world in the Middle Ages.

@user5001 Emperor certainly was not monarch before Heraclius, in modern terms it was "dictatorship". Also note that the predecessor of Heraclius, Phocas was desposed by the senate, which indicates that at least senators did not consider the state to be monarchy.

comment Has any generation generally agreed that the next generation was better?
I think it could be quite common feeling in several countries in the 1930s.
