    Yes, of course. I think nominally non-military issues are relevant for military subjects. This includes the economy and history since
    conflicts have plenty of non-military sources.

    In the Polish language kniaz means something like a "[Ruthenian] prince." Kniaz cannot mean "lord" as the local lords were known as the boyars.

    The word for "lord" in the Polish language is entirely different.



    Regarding the new forum section, the history of the knights is military history.

    I have no idea why did you placed this thread in this new section. It simply does not belong here and this does not make any sense.
