comment What is the Holy Roman Empire?
@FelixGoldberg That's a compelling argument, it seems the Emperor's power was greater in the 10th to 12th century as compared to the late medieval period.

comment What is the Holy Roman Empire?
@FelixGoldberg It may have been more centralized, but it was still made up of independent areas, early on it was mostly Duchy's as I understand it, of which Otto I himself was only Duke of Saxony until he was elected King of Germans. He then Conquered the Kingdom of Italy, and was crowned Emperor after that. So the Kingship was elected, but that did not give him direct control over all of the areas of the empire, it still rested on the various Dukes and Princes. I assume the amount of power the Emperor had varied greatly over time.

@Ovi That would make a good, separate question. :-)

This question appears to be off-topic because it is based on a misunderstanding.

Just realized it does have longitude. Might make a new comparison.

comment Why anthropocentrism disappears during the Dark Ages
This is to a large extent true, and I have indeed heard the argument before that this is not due to a decline in art, but intentional, and a lack of anthropocentrism could be a part explanation. But it seems to me that you assume this decline in anthropocentrism without adequately explain what you base that assumption on, which mean we don't know what you mean. That is not a definition in art, it's a definition of a word you use in a question.

Without better definitions of what is asked, you can see from the answers that it becomes a a matter of opinion. I'd like the question to get clarified.

comment What factors contributed to the rise of national monarchies in the high middle ages?
That the royal houses were "foreign" is not unusual, but I'm not sure it's relevant. The argument is that the monarchies were non-national, and for that to be true you have to be king over several or part of nations, and if The Netherlands didn't exist as a nation before the Dutch Royal house, then this is an argument against that claim.

comment What factors contributed to the rise of national monarchies in the high middle ages?
@jwenting That the house/dynasty changes doesn't change the fact that the geographic area/country developed together with a monarchy. Perhaps it didn't in the Netherlands, I could be wrong about that, but I still think that many national identities developed under a monarchy, and that national identities that developed despite having different kings, like in Germany and Italy rather is the exception.

comment What was the custom/consensus regarding irregular combatants 19th century?
OK, since it's reopened I removed any mention to "armed civilians". The Franc-tireurs were "free shooters", if anything a resistance movement or guerrilla fighters, not civilians.

Got rid of "armed civilian" wording.

comment What was the custom/consensus regarding irregular combatants 19th century?
The title for some reason mentioned snipers, which has nothing to do with the question. So I changed that. I also still think it's quite unclear what is asked, including the word "armed civilians" which is unclear. An armed civilian is a civilian with a weapon. If that civilian starts shooting at an invading military he is no longer a civilian, but a combatant. So is the question asking about civilians with guns? It seems to be about combatants. There is also no feedback from the user of what he actually is asking, so we are massacring his question without aim.
