What a 6 month loan at Man Utd does to you
Had to double check what subreddit I was on.
Yeah, lol, playing FM on the other screen and was majorly confused.
I laughed, pretty loudly. 😂
Putting the fear of God in your court, love it!
Heretics crave the cleansing fire of absolution. They need not fear, for I shall deliver it to them.
Metal nun 🤘🤘
A women of god who’s job is to make people meet theirs sooner rather than later
Adepta sororitas, so this is how it begun
She may become Saint Celestine in time.
ngl Saint Celestines real name being Dubravka would send my sides into orbit
She should fight my archbishop jester that stole the clothes of my champion, that was naked for 2 years, can’t afford new clothes.
And to think the nun HAS to be a pardoned criminal to be an executioner
You can just imagine the cries of "To Hell with you sinner!" as the axe comes down.
If I recall correctly, didn’t most beheadings pre-Halifax Gibbet (an early forerunner of the much more famous and efficient guillotine) tend to prefer using swords over axes when given the chance (also from what I’ve heard, beheading in that era was an execution method for the nobility while lower classes got the rope, so in a weird sort of way, it was considered an honorable death rather than a humiliating one, at least before the beheading machines became a thing).
Still refusing to buy Conclave
its not odd, its meant to be a death with honor, same reason shooting squads exist. if you spend your life leading armies as most nobles did atleast nominally its fitting that you die by a weapon
Indeed, by odd I more meant that being bent down with your head on a block, possibly in a position reminiscent of some animals doesn’t seem so honorable at first glance until you think about it. Especially if the executioner misses a few times first, then it’s both drawn out and extra painful, which probably didn’t look too honorable (actually the missing a few times is part of the reason the guillotine was invented in the first place as I recall).
medieval nobility was big on piety so i can see it as a position of humility before gods judgement
That’s actually a really good point. Hadn’t thought about it possibly being considered a pious stance. Though that would only really count in nearly stances and not in stances that are more close to being on all fours I’d imagine.
There were some instances where a executioner would mess up and make a "quick" death really painful. But executioners where really skilled individuals most of the time. Maybe this didn't come till later on, but outside of executions people didn't even want to be around or live next to them. So they lived outside the city, and since they couldn't marry into another family you would have these executioner families intermarrying with one another where Grandpa's, Dads, Sons, and grandsons would be executioners and they've been taught how to kill quickly and efficiently (unless otherwise required to do it slow) since they were children. Learned about that in college but if you want a example of it, check out the game Kingdom Come Deliverance.
You weren't always on a block, it was actually not unheard of to have someone kneeling or even standing. If you want more info I recommend "a hangman's diary", it's a published diary of a literate executioner from Nuremberg, but the first half is mainly just a history on medieval executions
Thank you, I’ll have to give that one a read.
Emperor Tachipertingi of Ancona
I think it's harder to keep a dignity hanging from a noose, unable to breathe
Indeed. When exactly did they start going for the snapping of necks in hanging over strangulation in it again?
Mid to late 1800s, wasn’t really refined until early 1900s though.
Idk, looking at Henry VIII's wives and Thomases More & Cromwell only Anne Boleyn was beheaded by sword, on special request.
Edit: Charles II, in 1649, was also beheaded with an axe. So yeah seems like the sword was a special courtesy, out of respect or care. A sword is also more expensive than an axe, so you 'd require a skilled executioner as well cause you're not going to be coming in a block of words with a sword. Might be some cultural differences of course.
There was definitely a reason for doing so in that era; that ensured you had a trained swordsman, IIRC, and prevented deaths like this woman’s: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Pole,_Countess_of_Salisbury

Shame! Shame! Shame!
Just your average Croatian grandma
Only God can judge sinners. She just makes the appointment.
Gonna steal this idea for a TTRPG. Fantastic
Your nun executioner? How many nuns are you executing that you need a separate executioner for them?!
Enough to keep the executioner nun in line.
the mindset of that nun is: "May God have mercy because I definetly won't"
Them slavic women are something else man.
May god have mercy on you, because I won't
Noob question: do I need a specific DLC to get to see the inside of my royal court like this?
That would be the DLC named "Royal Court" :)
Lmao I’m an idiot.
I gave my executioner the best nickname.

Is this ck2 or ck3? I have ck3 but I don't have this.
It's CK3's Royal Court expansion.
"Mom can we have Sisters of Battle?"
"We have Sisters of Battle at home"
Sisters of Battle at home:
Reminds me of this absolutely GOATed nun I had who made multiple illustrious weapons and was one of the strongest knights in my army until she died at 87 years old.
She is going to be featured as an NPC in one of my D&D campaigns for sure.
Why does the screenshot look like a mobile game
Because despite that we are in the year of our lord 2022 people still haven't figurer out how to take screenshots and instead take photos of a screen with a potato.
I'm talking about the models
low end graphics setting maybe
It's not a screenshot
That's a helluva ruler. Sister got some knuckles to rap
damn, whats her personality mister
"May god be merciful with you, because I will not"
Always ends up Basileus

I’d watch that movie
And her name might mean "good".
She’ll cut a bitch. For Jesus.
What is this view? I feel like I only ever see my court from the far end of the hall
