The art of war
galagraphia:

Undress a templar.
I believe it’s from an Osprey book about Knights Templar. My husband has a localised edition.

That’s from Osprey’s “Knight Templar 1120-1312” 
These are two plates combined ( at least at the copy I have)
The half at the left is titled “Knight Templar of around 1170”
Here’s the info about it:

The half at right is “The equipment carried by Templars, according to the Order’s statutes recorded in 1165
Here more details about it:

Was Bulgarian Empire society similar to Imperial Russian society? What about serfdom?
Anonymous

I don’t think it’s appropiate to compare Medieval Bulgaria with 18th to 20th century Russia. In Bulgaria there was not slavery but serfdom. In Medieval Bulgaria the Tzar had great power and all nobles were under his power and obeyed his orders ( mostly, we are excluding the separatist period in 13th-14th century, it was a process int he whole Balkans).

Of course due to time period difference and culture the two societies were very different. I am not sure you meant Medieval Bulgaria though, did you mean Third Bulgarian Tzardom?

And you don’t even have mouth to begin with, Anon… Are you talking to me about lips?

vis3rystargaryen tagged me in this game about the 11 questions and the tag game.

1. Who is your favourite fictional hero and why?

Most of the heroes I know are from historical books and films so they can be hardly regarded as fictional, right? So a clearly fictional hero I like is Lord Emsworth. He is quite funny, honest and charming in his own way. I recommend “Castle Blandings” to everyone.

2. If you were told you had to live off one meal for the rest of your life, what would you pick?

May be banitza but the type I like the most - with not too much oil and plenty of cheese.

3. Are there any movies you enjoyed as a kid that you can’t stand now?

I can’t remember of any.

4. What human accomplishment (of any size, at any time) are you most proud of?

I think ( and I hope)  there would be many things I would be proud of in the future. ( I didn’t quite understood the question whether it should be my accomplishment or just an event in the world history. Also I am just 22, the major events in my life are about to happen)

5. If you could keep any (real) animal as a pet, what would you keep?

I don’t have any special preferences but I would like to have a horse as a pet and learn to ride.

6. What’s the nerdiest thing you’ve ever wanted to buy?

A military uniform? Bulgarian Life Guard may be

or a hussar or cuirassier uniform. For now, a more realistic wish is a pith helmet.

7. What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done?

I don’t know, I really don’t know now, not that I am perfect but at the current moment I am not aware if I am making mistakes or not in a certain aspect. And if you think about it you can’t be sure what your biggest mistake is because you are not aware if you messed up more in the present and not realised it.

8. If you had the opportunity to go back in time and kill somebody before they did something awful, would you do it?

I would do it if only I could forsee the consequances which is something rather difficult to say…

9. Which celebrity do you look up to the most?

I am not much into popular people, I am not a great fan of any celebrity but I guess that I may be mostly look up to Monty Python members.

10. Which of your possessions is the most significant to you?

I am divided between my books and my cavalry sabre.

11. What’s one thing you’ve never done but really want to?

Fence.
