- Historical context
- Thirty Years' War
So before anyone asks, 'what is Poland doing that?', that's Bohemia, okay? They sort of rebelled against that stupid Emperor for not allowing them to be protestants anymore. Well, that's the gist of it.
So some will whine and complain about the accuracy about this comic. But geez, was it the same thing that bothered you with the Lord of the Rings films? Anyway, the Netherlands didn't actually lose entirely, that was not until Napoleon. But Spain did 'win'.
And on that note, the war that Spain and the Netherlands are also going around with is the Eighty Years' War. Yeah, that was fun too. And also the Netherlands with sunglasses.
