    And my personal favourite, which for some strange reason is almost fully unused today - "Romaiki Avtokratoria" (i.e. the literal translation of "Roman Empire", whereas "Vasileia ton Romaion" is "Empire of the Romans").

    Don't forget, though, that a decade later they recognized Charlemagne's imperial title.

    That recognition was not as "Roman" emperor but as Emperor of Germans. But Romans (byzantines) knew what was going on and from that point they added to the title of Emperor or Imperator the phrase "ton Romaeon" (of the Romans) just to point out the Charlemagne was Imperator of the Germans..
    Political intriques some wil say...True..That is why TGC mod realy exists anyway...To confuse players and force them to search historical events that wil make their game more pleasant and finally they will learn something. In what they will learn there will be no wrong or right...Just the begining of knowlege!

    The point is that the age portraied by the Mod is one of the most complex periods of History: The Birth of the Carolingian Empire that united in a unic political body: Germany, France and Italy, its dissolution after the death of Charlemagne, the birth of the cultural identities and territorial aggregations on which the nations will be founded, the birth of the Feudalism, the relative crisis of the Byzantine Empire, the expansion of the Muslims, the Invasions of Vikings and Hungarians (the Last Invasions of European History), the definitive separation of the two Catholic confessions one lead by Byzantium the other by the pope in Rome, the forced Christianization of the German lands in the Eastern part of Germany, the birth of the Slav states and ethnic identities, the Bulgars and the Turks developing as one of the great players of the European theater ... in the end, a very complex period of our history (even trying to write down what happens in Italy in 50 years at the beginning of the IX century it's not easy! It's a damn maze made of towns, conflicting cultural identities, castles and villages, rich and powerful old Roman towns, Convents as Bobbio and Monte Cassino (Anto, the Convents ... we need the Convents!) and new towns and centers of power, North, South, East and West all different and all parts of different political and historical situations, a true maze! a damn political maze!) ... all this to say two things:

    - Compliments for the courageous choice of one of the most intriguing, mysterious and complex ages of our common past.

    - It was really needed!
    From the day in which I installed for the first time Med2, I'm dreaming about the Early Medieval Age! Nobody dared to face this task as you are doing, so honour to Antonius (Latinized!) and Team, compliments, fight on this is the right battle!

    This units and pics are breathtaking, congratulations team. Since i started following the TGC, i have purchased the Strategikon of Maurice, and an Osprey book dedicated to the Tagmata with wonderful plates. You truly have ignited my interest for the Romans of the Early Medieval period. Thanks

    I am wondering if the team is also creating the Tagamatic units that is based outside of Constantinople. I thought Tagmatic units were based in many other parts of the Roman Empire during this period?

    It is true that during the 11 th cent the tagmatic units were taking over the place of the thematic ones in many cases.

    But isn't most of the provincial Tagmatic units infantry rather than cavalry?

    We would need also new sounds, I mean music, for this outstanding Mod something like .... Vangelis, or the troubadours' Romance songs, early medieval music, Heroic musical themes, we need to dream in this wonderful XI century Universe ... watching men like those posted here, riding in the field ...
