The Venetians were essentially the richest nation around a bunch of poorer nations. I presume they just feel superior to the other nations/countries.

>dicks
They pursued their own interests as all successful cities-states should

Didn't they eventually get BTFO'd? How did they get away with their Crusades antics?

They were Catholics and Italians, so as they are not Anglos or Protestants they are not considered the forefathers of Capitalism that they were.

What I want to know is what the Genoan-Venetian rivalry was like

>How did they get away with their Crusades antics?
Papa Enrico knew how to play the game.

>Venice
they should just get flooded already

>They were Catholics and Italians, so as they are not Anglos or Protestants they are not considered the forefathers of Capitalism that they were.

They weren't dicks, they just occupied a lucrative economic niche in the global trade network.

>antics
You mean doling out justice where it was needed most?

Attack each other on site. Even in Crusader cities in the process of being captured.
They really, REALLY didn't like each other.

Lotta unloyalty for a Christian nation (with fellow byzantines)

Maybe he's wondering why someone would kill a pretender before paying his promised reward?

Byzaboos BTFO

This is a meme

They live in sewers like rats.

>Venice gets ganged upon
>everyone sucks aside from France
>the pope gets scared of France so he switches sides and brings with him all his allies against France
>then the pope decides to also keep fighting Venice
>Venice's quarrel is with the pope, not France, so they ally the frogs against his holy cuntiness
>Venice and France hilariously rek everyone else
I fail to see how Venice was the dick in this war.
This is literally all on the pope, arguably Austria too, but mostly the pope.

Based France and based Venice

Obligatory

>implying the pope didnt deserve it

>not Anglos
>What are the fucking Dutch?
Anglos had fuck all to do with it

>wanting the real pearl of the Adriatic to be flooded

Barbaric villainous scum!

lel

that was awful

Waste of quads

They were ├╝bermensch.

As the Western Roman Empire collapsed, Venetians were the last vestige of civilization in the region. Any eurocucks with a 3 digit IQ who weren't lucky enough to be born to some warlord or willing to wear the chastity cage and join the church would gravitate to their trade network, of which Venice became the core (along with Genoa, their mirror image on the other side of the Apennine Peninsula) after the Eastern Roman Empire declined.

While other states were still a feudal theocratic mess, Venice was spook free until the renaissance spread all over Europe and the ├╝bermensch went elsewhere. As such, instead of fighting pointless religious wars or dying in someone else's succession crisis, the Venetians would fight to expand trade or sack Constantinople.

terrible

Nice description of Venice you got there.

>venice

You're right, they're not barbaric. They're the plotters behind barbarism though.
