I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

@aea2o5 Per the FAQ, questions answered by a simple Google search or Wikipedia page are off-topic. Does the Wiki page answer your question? If not, please edit your question to be more specific as to what you don't understand and we'll be happy to help you.

comment Why did the Fourth Crusade sack Constantinople?
Personally, I disagree with you @Carlo_R. . There needn't be a reason based on actual problems for every question. See meta.history.stackexchange.com/a/237/961

comment Why did Emperor Nero kill his mother and others?
This varies by the account, but it was probably related to a power struggle between the two.

comment Language of early French (West-Frankish) kings
This happened very gradually. It wasn't like some king passed a law making Old French the official language of the court.
