I've been watching some kind a medieval fantasy anime and I stumbled upon the following sentence :
Context : A character explain how his clan rose to power.
There are two things, I don't really understand in this sentence :
- How does ~にまで work in this sentence ? What does まつりごとにまで mean ?
- I think「など」is used to give an example of something but I'm not sure I really understand what (maybe because of 1.) ?
Basically, I don't really understand those "structures" and their potential nuances of meaning in this context.
I tried to roughly translate what I understand of the sentence and I got :
Finally, my clan went as far as bringing in things like a system of inspection, as an annual tribute, in order to gain influence.
