comment What was Muhammad's religion before becoming a Muslim prophet?
Thanks for your answer! However, I am actually more interested to see his individual belief. The broader context of the various religions in Arabia at that time was already covered in the question I linked What was the religion of the Arabic people before conversion to Islam?

comment How did British queens get power over kings despite a male-dominant society?
In the UK, there is no King Consort, the spouse of a queen regnant is a prince consort. I guess the reason is to prevent the consort from appearing to outrank the queen.

When there is a queen regnant, such as Queens Elizabeth I & II, Queen Victoria, there is no King. So the queen didn't really "get power over King"

comment Why did Charles V divide his holdings as he did?
Makes me wonder, was it legal for him to do so? I mean, shouldn't the Archduchy of Austria and the other HRE titles pass by primogeniture?

comment How did the Nuremberg Trials decide whether a guilty defendant was to be sentence to death or life imprisonment?
Is the "extenuating circumstance"/"no extenuating circumstance" part your own interpretation of the summary (I didn't see such wording in your link). How did you define "extenuating circumstance"? And also, do you mean that other counts do not matter in this case?
