Not funny, not violent, not evil in anyway. What is this, the fucking poetv german history channel. How did this get out of the hopper?
StanleyPain
because the people that frequent the hopper are idiots and apparently can't recognize click-bait bullshit submissions by the people who own the channels they are submitting. (or are associated with them)

That part of the Holy Roman Empire that goes deep into Italy ... for some reason, this is interesting to me. Of the various northern barbarians that swarmed through Europe at the end of the Western Roman Empire, the Lombards were one of the last, and they made it all the way down to Italy to set up a kingdom there. (Imagine their astonishment to travel all that way and discover the place was called "Lombardy".) They were a significant power until they came into conflict with the Pope in the late 700s, and the Pope called on Charlemagne for military aid. Charlemagne smashed the Lombards and absorbed their territory, so that was the end of the Lombards as a political power.

I have heard that assorted Italian traditions (such as duels to settle disputes) have their roots with the Lombards and their barbarian ways. Also, I would bet anything the blonde-haired / blue-eyed Italians owe their Scandinavian-looking traits to the Lombards.

Don't forget the Lombard Banking System, also known as pawn shops, which still use the same symbol to this day.

As stupid as this sounds, I always find it so interesting how the map on a Total War game set in europe looks at various eras, especially with realism mods. Like the small group of Gauls over in Turkey in the first Rome: Total War game (possibly modded). Much like the Crusader States they were remnants from a Gaulish plunder crusade I think I read somewhere. Or the Normans settling in Sicily or even the part of the HRE cut off from the rest of the empire there. Always wondered how something like that would work without uncontested land/waters between them....
