In this short study, light is shed on the rotatory motion of a rigid body about a fixed point under the action of different external fields and moments. These fields can be considered as gravitational, Newtonian, and electromagnetic, while the moments are represented by gyrostatic, perturbing, and restoring moments. Some of the perturbation methods are viewed to show how much they are involved in the solutions to this problem.
