Medieval Warfare - VI.5 The Knights Templar Theme: Peter Konieczny, "The rise and fall of a military order - Who were the Knights Templar?" The idea of the Knights Templar looked good on paper. Have knights from across Europe join a monastic order that would defend the Holy Land from non-Christians. They would be devout warriors fighting on behalf of God, an example for all of Christendom. What could go wrong? Theme: Helen Nicholson, "None is more illustrious than it is - Why I write about the...

Theme: Cristian Violatti, "The empires of Persia at war - Historical introduction" Medes, Persians or Achaemenids? Ancient sources rarely cared to differentiate them. Their tribes united and became kingdoms, and their kingdoms turned into empires. Some of the most decisive chapters of ancient warfare were written when their ever-changing borders brought them face-to-face with the great western powers.

Wars at the edge of empires Theme: Josho Brouwers, "Wars at the edge of empires - Historical introduction" Once people began to live in settled villages, they started to identify themselves not just based on their language and culture, but also on where they lived. Farmers became, to a lesser or larger extent, tied to the soil. As villages grew into cities and cities became the centres of larger city-states, kingdoms, and even empires, it became ever more important to define territories in a...

Theme: Katrina Ingram, "An introduction to the theme - The Norman Invasion of Ireland" In 1166, Dermot Mac Murragh, the defeated King of Leinster, travelled to England to ask King Henry II for assistance, who in turn sent some of his nobles back with Dermot to help him reclaim his land. This plea for help paved the way for Henry’s invasion four years later in 1171 and allowed Henry to proclaim himself the overlord of Ireland without having to draw his sword. Yet contrary to popular belief,...

Wars in Hellenistic EgyptTheme: Joshua J. Mark, "Kingdom of the Ptolemies - Historical introduction" Egypt had been dominated by a foreign power since it fell to the Persians in 525 BC. When Alexander the Great conquered the Persian Empire in 331 BC, he founded the city of Alexandria as Egypt’s new capital. After his death, one of his generals, Ptolemy Lagides – afterwards known as Ptolemy I Soter (‘The Saviour’) – took control of Egypt and founded the Hellenistic dynasty that would bear his...

Theme: The Roman conquest of Greece Theme: Joseph Hall, "The Roman conquest of Greece - Historical introduction" From the northern rivers and plains of Macedon to the southern heart of the peninsula (amongst whose ragged mountains and plateaux nestled the venerable poleis of old Greece) countless kingdoms, city-states, leagues, and tribes struggled by turns for supremacy and survival in a flux of ever-changing alliances. Into this world, already ancient before their arrival, crashed the...

Naval warfare and piracy in the middle ages Theme: Scott Forbes Crawford, "Historical introduction - Yesterday pirate, today privateer" Piracy and naval warfare: interrelated categories in medieval maritime conflict.

The Burgundian Wars (1474-1477) pitted the two relatively small European powers of the Old Swiss Confederacy and Burgundy against one another. It was a curious war that could and should have been avoided, as it mainly benefited the larger neighbors of France and Austria. The wars could easily have turned into a full-scale European conflict. Instead, the big powers simply sat back and watched the fireworks. Charles the Bold (1433-1477), Duke of Burgundy, never met a fight he did not want to...

Them: Gabriele Esposito, "'The Lionheart's Sicilian adventure - Three is a crowd'." The Sicilian campaign is one of the lesser known events in the life of Richard the Lionheart. Still, with three powerful kings confronting one another on a small piece of land, there was every chance of it escalating into a major conflict. The other two kings were Philip II of France and Tancred I of Sicily. The history of the kingdom of Sicily was strongly linked with that of the Plantagenet royal family;...

Theme: Betrayal in the Middle Ages Theme: Kenneth Cline, "Historical introduction - Getting personal with treason -" Treason during the Middle Ages usually involved a very personal betrayal, in contrast to modern times, when traitors often betray their country for ideological reasons. Medieval culture abhorred the traitor as a threat to society's feudal bonds of loyalty, and the law provided for especially harsh punishments. Even so, ambitious or desperate men still utilized the act of...
