To this the priest replied with further verses somewhat as follows :. And then when the priest was asked who should suc- ceed this man, he gave answer, it is said, with another Greek verse :. But this was altogether unintelligible until Bassianus took the name Antoninus, 1 which was Pius' true surname. And when finally they asked how long he should rule, the priest is said to have replied in Greek as follows :. The Albino people of today, who are invaders from Central Asia in the modern era: Germanics, Slavs, and Turks; are degenerate fakers of history, so as to make it appear that they participated in the making of Western History.
To this end they not only lie and make up false history, they also create fake artifacts of every kind. Here are some things to look out for with the Bronzes.

The Theban legend relates that the legion, composed entirely of Christians, had been called from Thebes in southern Egypt, to suppress a revolt of the Bagandae also Christians in Gaul now Saint-Maurice Switzerland. After victory, the soldiers were ordered to sacrifice Bagandae prisoners? Every tenth soldier was then killed decimation. Another order to sacrifice and another refusal caused a second decimation, and then a general massacre of the Legion. A Roman legion was typically composed of perhaps 6, soldiers, divided into "cohorts" and further divided into "centuries".
So reads the earliest account of their martyrdom, contained in the public letter of Eucherius, bishop of Lyon — , addressed to his fellow bishop Salvius. Alternate versions have the legion refusing Maximian's orders only after discovering a town they had just destroyed had been inhabited by innocent Christians.
And some have Maurice as a captain of the legion. This legend and its historical implications are a wonderful example of the pathetic racism and outrageous stupidity; of the nonsense Whites try to pass of as history. Lets deconstruct this nonsense for examination. First, Maurice is not an Egyptian name. Now lets look at the logistics of this: If Emperor Maximian was in Rome at the time he sent for Maurice, it would have taken a minimum of 32 days for the message to reach Maurice.
It would have taken Maurice days to gather up his 6, men and supplies for the journey. Pure nonsense! Maurice is said to have the title of "Primicerius". But in the military, the use of the term was restricted to units associated with the imperial court, chiefly imperial guards. Maurice died A. Eucherius, Bishop of Lyon, discovered his story, and wrote about him in about A. So who was Maurice? Research has revealed that the one above was Ulrich von Hutten — who was a German scholar, poet and reformer. He was an outspoken critic of the Roman Catholic Church and a bridge between the humanists and the Lutheran Reformation.
At the turn of the "modern Era" year "0" A. We have no good single source to explain the expulsion of the Albino Germanic's and Slav's from Central Asia. See: Ammianus Marcellinus — a fourth-century Roman historian. Note: excerpts from those sources are in the "Eastern Europe" page Main menu. We do not have a good single source for the expulsion of the Germanic's and Slav's, but the following is a good, not overly complicated, source for the Turks. Pressured out of their homes in the Asian steppes by the Mongols, the Turkish tribes converted to Islam during the eighth and ninth centuries.
By the tenth century, one of the Turkish tribes, the seljuk , had become a significant power in the Islamic world and had adopted a settled life that included Islamic orthodoxy, a central administration, and taxation. However, many other Turkish groups remained nomadic and, pursuing the gazi tradition, sought to conquer land for Islam and to acquire war booty for themselves.
This led them into conflict with the Seljuk Turks, and to pacify the nomadic tribes, the Seljuks directed them to the eastern domain of the Byzantine Empire, Anatolia. The tribe known as the Ottomans arose from one of the smaller emirates established in northwestern Anatolia after The dynasty was named for Osman , who began to expand his kingdom into the Byzantine Empire in Asia Minor, moving his capital to Bursa in The above passage is from the University of Calgary's tutorial "The End of Europe's Middle Ages" which is designed to assist those students engaged in Renaissance, Reformation and Early Modern studies who lack a background in medieval European history.
Intended to provide a brief overview of the conditions at the end of Europe's Middle Ages, the tutorial is presented in a series of chapters that summarize the economic, political, religious and intellectual environment of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The main objective of the tutorial is to furnish a baseline against which the vast changes of the following centuries may be measured.
In the main, the tutorial is rudimentary, but the part on the Turks is quite good, that is why it is listed here. The point has been made in these pages, many times, that modern Whites are derived from Central Asian Albinos, who invaded Europe in the early modern era. The Germans themselves I should regard as aboriginal, and not mixed at all with other races through immigration or intercourse.
For, in former times, it was not by land but on shipboard that those who sought to emigrate would arrive; and the boundless and, so to speak, hostile ocean beyond us the north Sea , is seldom entered by a sail from our world. And, beside the perils of rough and unknown seas, who would leave Asia, or Africa, or Italy for Germany, with its wild country, its inclement skies, its sullen manners and aspect, unless indeed it were his home?
In their ancient songs, their only way of remembering or recording the past, they celebrate an earth-born god, Tuisco, and his son Mannus, as the origin of their race, as their founders. The name Germany, on the other hand, they say, is modern and newly introduced, from the fact that the tribes which first crossed the Rhine and drove out the Gauls, and are now called Tungrians, were then called Germans.
Thus what was the name of a tribe, and not of a race, gradually prevailed, till all called themselves by this self-invented name of Germans, which the conquerors had first employed to inspire terror. For my own part, I agree with those who think that the tribes of Germany are free from all taint of inter-marriages with foreign nations, and that they appear as a distinct, unmixed race, like none but themselves.
Hence, too, the same physical peculiarities throughout so vast a population. All have fierce blue eyes, red hair, classic Albinism , huge frames, fit only for a sudden exertion.
They are less able to bear laborious work. Heat and thirst they cannot in the least endure; to cold and hunger their climate and their soil inure them. When Constantine became the sole Roman Emperor in , Christianity became the leading religion of the empire. After the death of Constantine in , two of his sons, Constantius II and Constans took over the leadership of the empire. Constans, ruler of the western provinces, was like his father, a Christian.
In , he decreed that all pre-Christian Graeco Roman worship and sacrifice should cease; warning those who still persisted in practising ancient Graeco-Roman polytheism with the threat of the death penalty. Lay Christians took advantage of new anti-Graeco-Roman polytheism laws by destroying and plundering the temples. Temples that survived were converted into Christian churches: the Pantheon is the most notable example, having once been a temple to all the gods and later, removing the statues of the so-called 'pagan' gods and replacing them with Christian saints, becoming a church in honor of their own one god.
Many of the buildings in the Roman Forum were similarly converted, preserving the structures if not their original intent. Later on, the emperor Julian the Apostate attempted to reverse the process of Christianization and bring back the native forms of polytheism, but his death in Persia caused the empire to once again fall under the power of Christian control, this time permanently. The decline of the Roman Empire was a slow process, which occurred over a period of over years.
Beginning at about A. With the actual true White Germaic's following. Note that Odoacers hair stands straight up, White peoples hair cannot do that naturally. Laugh at the example if you will, but the point still holds true, also note Vercingetorix's hair. Today's descendants of the Germanic, Slav, and Turk Albinos from Central Asia, have so confused and obfuscated history with their false accounts and fake artifacts, that it is impossible at this time, to say definitively what the hierarchy of ancient western Rome was like, from artifacts, we know that the Eastern Empire was ruled by Blacks.
What little that we do have of artifactual evidence, suggests that like the Eastern Empire, the Western Empire was also ruled by Blacks. This painting of unknown provenance and period, may well be fanciful, but we feel that it accurately depicts the hierarchy of the Western Roman Empire. He expanded the Frankish kingdom France into an empire that incorporated much of Western and Central Europe.
This temporarily made him a rival of the Byzantine Emperor in Constantinople. His rule is also associated with the Carolingian Renaissance, a revival of art, religion, and culture through the medium of the Catholic Church. Through his foreign conquests and internal reforms, Charlemagne helped define both Western Europe and the Middle Ages. He was crowned Emperor of the Romans in A. This continued as a significant institution in the Holy Roman Empire until the 16th century. Charlemagne's policy of "renovatio Romanorum imperii" reviving the Roman Empire remained at least in theory, as the official position of the Empire until its end in Was Charlemagne a Black man?
At this point there is no way to know - and that information is not likely to be forthcoming. As such, Charlemagne would have indeed, probably been a Black man. But because Whites have so interwoven European history with lies, there are really no safe assumptions, and no safe place to start. As to the false Coin: In , Charlemagne's tomb was opened by scientists who reconstructed his skeleton and estimated it to be measured A modern study based on the dimensions of his tibia estimate his height as 1.
This puts him in the 99th percentile of tall people of his period given that average male height of his time was 1. The width of the bone suggest he was gracile not robust in body build. But what's new, Whites routinely use fake artifacts to bolster their lies. Charlemagne was actively and personally involved in wars into distant lands throughout his 46 year reign - Fat guys don't get around like that!
So whoever decided to falsely use that coin, didn't even know the history of the man. While Charlemagne had been crowned emperor in , his empire had been divided amongst his grandsons, and following the assassination of Berengar of Friuli in , the imperial title had lain vacant for nearly forty years.
The Real History That Inspired “Star Wars”
Otto succeeded his father as king of the Saxons in , on February 2, , Otto was crowned Emperor of what would later become the Holy Roman Empire. The obvious corollary is that Edith came from a long line of Black British royalty. In order to seal an alliance between two Saxon kingdoms, her half-brother, King Athelstan of England, sent two of his sisters to Germany, instructing the Duke of Saxony later Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor to choose whichever one pleased him best. Otto chose Edith and married her in The remaining sister Algiva or Adiva was married to a "king near the Jupiter mountains" the Alps.
The precise identity of this sister is debated. As queen, Eadgyth undertook the usual state duties of a Queen: when she turns up in the records it is generally in connection with gifts to the state's favoured monasteries or memorials to female holy women and saints. In this respect she seems to have been more diligent than her now widowed and subsequently sainted mother-in-law Queen Matilda whose own charitable activities only achieve a single recorded mention from the period of Eadgyth's time as queen.
There was probably rivalry between the Benedictine Monastery of St Maurice founded at Magdeburg by Otto and Eadgyth in , a year after coming to the throne and Matilda's foundation at Quedlinburg Abbey, intended by her as a memorial to her husband, the late King Henry I.
Like her brother, Athelstan, Edith was devoted to the cult of Saint Oswald and was instrumental in introducing this cult into Germany after her marriage to the emperor. Her lasting influence may have caused certain monasteries and churches in Saxony to be dedicated to this saint. Eadgyth died at a relatively young age. Her tomb is located in the Cathedral of Magdeburg, Germany. A lead coffin inside a stone sarcophagus with her name on it was found and opened in by archaeologists during work on the building. An inscription recorded that it was the body of Eadgyth, reburied in It was examined in , then brought to Bristol, England, for tests in Professor Mark Horton of Bristol University said that "this may prove to be the oldest complete remains of an English royal.
Edith and Otto's children were: 1. Liutgarde, married Conrad the Red, 2. Liudolf, Duke of Swabia September 6 And of course from modern studies, we know that aside from being Germaic, the modern populations also have significant Turk admixture. The "Dark Ages" is a term referring to the perceived period of both cultural and economic deterioration as well as disruption that took place in Western Europe following the decline of the Roman Empire: the phrase was first recorded in Originally, the term characterized the bulk of the Middle Ages as a period of intellectual darkness between the extinguishing of the light of Rome, and the Renaissance or rebirth from the 14th century onwards.
The concept of a Dark Age originated with the Italian scholar Petrarch Francesco Petrarca in the s, and was originally intended as a sweeping criticism of the character of Late Latin literature. Petrarch regarded the post-Roman centuries as "dark" compared to the light of classical antiquity.
Later historians expanded the term to refer to the transitional period between Roman times and the High Middle Ages, including not only the lack of Latin literature, but also a lack of contemporary written history, general demographic decline, limited building activity and material cultural achievements in general. Popular culture has further expanded on the term as a vehicle to depict the Middle Ages as a time of backwardness, extending its pejorative use and expanding its scope.
Just as the Hellenes and Romans were an illiterate nomadic people, when they first entered Black Europe over a thousand years earlier. And just as they struggled to learn the ways and technologies of civilization, so it was also for the Germanic's. And just as before, there was a "Dark Ages" of regression, while they learned the ways of civilization. But unlike the Hellenes, the Germanic's did NOT attribute their inheritance of civilization to the rightful benefactor albeit an unwilling benefactor , the Black ancients.
They perhaps ignorantly, perhaps racistly, attributed it to the Classical Greeks. Though somewhat eclipsed by technology today, the sense of a legacy was strongly felt by post-Renaissance European elite, who saw themselves as the spiritual heirs of Greece. As late as Will Durant could write "excepting machinery, there is hardly anything secular in our culture that does not come from Greece," and conversely "there is nothing in Greek civilization that doesn't illuminate our own".
Had it remained just a sense of debt to the ancient Greeks, the world would have been a much better place today.

But it did not, the Germanic's not having any history of their own, decided to make one up, with the Hellenes and Romans as the base. They decided that they were the descendants of the Hellenes and Romans, but since they were White skinned, Blue-eyed, Blond haired, and the Hellenes and Romans were not. They decided to create statues and other artifacts depicting Hellenes and Romans as such. Then, perhaps as a "Snowballing" effect, they decided that ALL ancient civilizations must be White like them also: soon White Egyptian artifacts began to appear exclusive of the legitimate Greek and Roman period type.
Then with their success in wars of expansion and colonization, they decided that because they were so great, then everyone previous of any consequence must also have been White - and the requisite artifacts thus appeared. All this from a people who just a few hundred years earlier, couldn't figure out why it was a bad idea to shit in the same places that you took your drinking water from. Under the heading "Better late than Never" mainstream White media, in the form of "The Guardian" known until as The Manchester Guardian founded , a British national daily newspaper: for reasons unknown, has decided to acknowledge the obvious: Greece and Rome were NOT Albino societies or cultures, and decided to do a newsstory on it, Thursday 11 July Click here for link to the original newsstory.
And just like the previous Whites, they were bent on conquest. And just like the Germanic's, having no history, they decided to create a place in history for themselves. Interestingly though, Turks in Turkey proper, are taught something quite different. In the Turkish Nations creation myth a modern country with a creation myth? From tomes: a large or scholarly book, produced by the Ministry of Education in ; Turks are taught that at the dawn of history, their ancestors, led by a mythical gray she-wolf, started migrating outwards from the heart of Central Asia. As the numbers of their people swelled and droughts dried the traditional grazing lands on the steppe, some of them, they are told, even crossed the Bering Strait into the Americas.
Presumably becoming the American Indians. In his later years, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk the founder of the modern Turkey nation , himself adopted a creed known as the "Sun Theory", which depicts the Turks as the mother race of all mankind, and proposed that all human languages are descendants of one proto-Turkic primal language.
Note: though the theory may sound outlandish, there is justification, and anecdotal evidence, for believing that at least the "North American Indian" was a Turk mulatto. The proof of this assertion, he told journalist, was that the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean, had obviously been named by Turks, especially since their capital was called Grand Turk.
The islands are in fact named after a fez-shaped cactus. Under the heading "This is Backwards": Just as Albino media seems reconciled to the fact that the truth of Greece and Rome will get out. They seem determined to continue to pass-off the Turks and Turk mulattoes, of North Africa, Arabia, Middle-East, and West Asia, as original people: rather than the recent invaders that they are.
The symbol was originally chosen by the initial organization's founder, George L. The swastika, in various iconographic forms, is one of the hate symbols identified in use as graffiti in US schools, and is a part of the US Department of Education's emergency school-wide response trigger. In , Microsoft officially spoke out against use of the swastika by players of the first-person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops. In Black Ops , players are allowed to customize their name tags to represent, essentially, whatever they want. The swastika can be created and used, but Stephen Toulouse , director of Xbox Live policy and enforcement, stated that players with the symbol on their name tag will be banned if someone reports as inappropriate from Xbox Live.
The swastika has been replaced by a stylized Greek cross. Its inclusion was to subliminally draw parallels between the movie's Federal Bureau of Termination and Nazi Germany, and also refer to Kurt Vonnegut 's experiences as a POW and the influence World War II played in his imagining of a population-controlled future where authorities use gas chambers to terminate people. The Federal Bureau of Termination logo appears as a white geometric design with a black outline, centered on vertical banners, in reference to the Third Reich banners.
These banners were initially red, until the crew felt the allusion was too strong. The movie's hospital was envisaged as the Bureau's branch that controlled birth, and their red cross was given 'wings' to transform it into a swastika, and link it to the Bureau's logo. In , authorities in Tajikistan called for the widespread adoption of the swastika as a national symbol.
President Emomali Rahmonov declared the swastika an Aryan symbol, and "the year of Aryan culture", which would be a time to "study and popularize Aryan contributions to the history of the world civilization, raise a new generation of Tajiks with the spirit of national self-determination, and develop deeper ties with other ethnicities and cultures". In East Asia, the swastika is prevalent in Buddhist monasteries and communities.
It is commonly found in Buddhist temples, religious artefacts, texts related to Buddhism and schools founded by Buddhist religious groups. It also appears as a design or motif singularly or woven into a pattern on textiles, architecture and various decorative objects as a symbol of luck and good fortune. The icon is also found as a sacred symbol in the Bon tradition, but in the left facing mode. Many Chinese religions make use of the swastika symbol, including Guiyidao and Shanrendao. All of them show the swastika in their logos. Among the predominantly Hindu population of Bali , in Indonesia , the swastika is common in temples, homes and public spaces.
Similarly, the swastika is a common icon associated with Buddha's footprints in Theravada Buddhist communities of Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia. In Japan, the swastika is also used as a map symbol and is designated by the Survey Act and related Japanese governmental rules to denote a Buddhist temple. The city of Hirosaki in Aomori Prefecture designates this symbol as its official flag, which stemmed from its use in the emblem of the Tsugaru clan , the lords of Hirosaki Domain during the Edo period.
In India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, the swastika is common. Temples, businesses and other organisations, such as the Buddhist libraries, Ahmedabad Stock Exchange and the Nepal Chamber of Commerce,  use the swastika in reliefs or logos. The swastika remains prominent in Hindu ceremonies such as weddings. The left facing sauwastika symbol is found in tantric rituals.
Musaeus College in Colombo, Sri Lanka , a Buddhist girls' school, has a left facing swastika in their school logo. In India, swastik and swastika, with their spelling variants, are first names for males and females respectively, for instance with Swastika Mukherjee. The Seal of Bihar contains two swastikas. Since the end of the 20th century, and through the early 21st century, confusion and controversy has occurred when consumer goods bearing the traditional Jain, Buddhist, or Hindu symbols have been exported to the West, notably to North America and Europe, and have been interpreted by consumers as bearing a Nazi symbol.
This has resulted in several such products having been boycotted or pulled from shelves. The boy's parents misinterpreted the symbol as the right-facing Nazi swastika and filed a complaint to the manufacturer. Nintendo of America announced that the cards would be discontinued, explaining that what was acceptable in one culture was not necessarily so in another; their action was welcomed by the Anti-Defamation League who recognised that there was no intention to offend, but said that international commerce meant that, "Isolating [the Swastika] in Asia would just create more problems.
In , Christmas crackers containing plastic toy red pandas sporting swastikas were pulled from shelves after complaints from consumers in Canada. The manufacturer, based in China, said the symbol was presented in a traditional sense and not as a reference to the Nazis, and apologized to the customers for the cross-cultural mixup. Besides the use as a religious symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, which can be traced to pre-modern traditions, the swastika is also used by a number of new religious movements established in the modern period.
