comment Did the proto-Indo-Europeans displace or overlay the pre-existing European tribes?
Definitely wrong. Tripolian culture had much more advanced agriculture and greater population (two largest cities in the world!) than Proto-Indo-Europeans.

comment Is it true that Proto-Ukrainians conquered Europe and India?
I think Kurgan hypothesis mostly deals with 4000-3000 BC, so 6000-5000 ago, not 8000.

comment When was the last time a reigning monarch personally participated in battle?
I think Charles XII was a participant unwillingly, possibly, his staff place was attacked after the army defeated. It is like a monarch killed after his capitol captured or bombed.

@David Richerby was the weapon of Napoleon ceremonial or not? How do u tell that Nicolas II's weapon is ceremonial unlike that of Napoleon?

@David Richerby it is not clear whether his weapons are ceremonial on not, what is a definition of ceremonial? I am quite sure his saber is battle-worthy. I do not know what the topic starter meant under "partisipant" but I do not see why Albert I counts while Nicholas II does not.

@David Richerby he most likely was armed. Or it is required that the monarch was shooting?

I think a reasonable person may think of a commander that he perticipated even he was far from the frontline and only conducted the planning. Does this count? Or should he physically be present?
