Cortés, Pizarro, and Afonso as Precedents for Takeover

Nice post. Were there any sources besides Wikipedia that you found especially helpful when researching this post?

1Daniel Kokotajlo2yThis post was based on very little research; all I did was read the wiki pages. So it's possible that a real historian (or a real history book) would yield different conclusions. However, I am fairly confident this won't happen for the main conclusion of my post: that you don't need a god-like technological advantage for a tiny group to have a good shot at quickly taking over a large region.
