  2. 1) What is the source on the capital moving from Hattusha to Tarhuntassa? I had never heard that theory before from anyone and it would have been rather strange for the Hittite system. If it is info from a more recent text that was unearthed, extremely well done.

    2) I know everyone does this, but the color coding of making all Egyptian associated kings/allies one color versus all the Hittite associated kings/allies another is extremely misleading. We know Muwatalli's forces consisted of at least 17 other kings, with him being the MAGNUS.REX (King of Kings) at the head. This was fairly typical of the period; the Hittites and Egyptians did not usually go around culturally "converting" people to their side, but rather negotiated with smaller kings (such as the one at Kadesh) to join their side's deity approved coalition. It was also why these polities tended to fall apart rather quickly, as the allegiances were mostly tied to the man (Muwatalli/Ramesses in this case) instead of the position (MAGNUS.REX and Pharaoh, respectively).

    3) Military numbers for this period are virtually impossible to determine for certain due to the core nature of the primary sources, but many scholars believe the 10k Hittite chariot estimate v 2k Egyptian one is some Ramesses sponsored hyperbole. Also how the chariots were exactly used has remained contentious for 150 years of scholarship, but that is a topic for another time.

    Not a bad video on a heinously difficult topic to research. I prefer this one to the one K&G launched a little while ago, so excellent job and hopefully you guys will delve further into the LBA/EIA in the future. If you guys want any help from a PhD university trained ancient SW Asian military historian (Neo-Hittite/Neo-Assyrian focus), let me know.

  3. Then the "people of the sea" came and annihilated the Hitties and the entire region powers but Egypt under Ramses the third "not the second" managed to defeat them west of Delta river

  4. A pet peeve. The term "superpower" was expressly created as way to distinguish a country that could destroy all life on earth (basically the us and ussr) from every empire or national power that came before. Using the term as synonym for 'big, impressive, global power" or whatever is completely missing the point.

  5. the amount of collabs HistoryMarche and Srpske Bitke have been doing recently is weird, but good. Not often do you see channels that use different languages in their content collaborate on topics. And I get to see some of the best content first in English here and then almost the same content about a week later in Serbian there. I've been really enjoying it.

  6. JUST A QUESTION ON THE EGYPT AND THE HITTITES BATTLE OF KADESH DID EITHER SIDE COME A CROSS OTHER GROUPS ON THERE WAY BEFORE AND AFTER THE BATTLE, DID THEY HAVE ANY CONFLICT WITH THE PHILISTINES / MOABITES / AMORITES / ISRAELITES / OR ANY OTHER TRIBES. THANK YOU
