Thanks for taking me again to Adelaide, the place I spent 3 months on scholar change in 1992. Shout-out to Concordia College!
But I do have to weigh in on the Captain Hahn controversy, as a result of I used to be shocked if you, Chris, stated that he was Danish, not German. Because the title is clearly German.
What occurred is that he was born on the island of Sylt, which had semi-autonomy inside the Danish Kingdom and have become a part of Prussia in 1866 (after Hahn’s demise).
So, it might properly have been that he was a Danish citizen, however ethnically and linguistically, he was likely German (or Prussian). He additionally sailed on a German ship and took German settlers to South Australia.
Before the time of nation states, I all the time discover it a bit tough to say that somebody was of this or that citizenship. Especially so when it comes to multi-ethnic empires or, like in the case of Germany, to international locations that merely did not exist at the time. (Germany as a nation state was solely established in 1871, after Hahn’s demise. However, that does not imply that individuals did not have a notion of being German earlier than, no less than since the [failed] revolution of 1848.)
And much more so in that fraught area, which gave us the well-known Schleswig-Holstein query.
