I get a bit that way about periods named after civil wars; English, American, Spanish. It makes me feel bad not only for wars of the same era that don’t hog the limelight in the same way, but also civil wars that don’t get their own bespoke period.

This! This really bugs me too, mainly with the English Civil War, their was at least half a dozen before the “famous” one, why isn’t it ECW VII(or whatever actual numeral) that would sound way cooler IMO
