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?
