Who is they? There was no popular support for a new monarchy in post-revolution American. None. (Okay, maybe Hamilton and his friends but that's about it) The only Americans who wanted a king were the loyalists who would have preferred to stay attached to Britain, and they didn't want any king except King George III.

How true is these post from /int/?

There are 5 different people that colonized the peninsula during the reconquista.
>Gallaic people
Originary from Galicia. Colonized most of modern day Portugal and parts of Andalucia and Extremadura. Their language was Galician which gave birth to modern day Galician and Portuguese
>Asturian
Originary from Asturias colonized most of Zamora,Leon,Salamanca and Extremadura. Their language was Leonese/Bable. This language degenerated into Mirandes as well. These language groups got totally eclipsed by Castillian in 1230 when Ferdinand the III unified Castile and Leon and made Castillian the official language of both kingdoms.
>Castillians
Originary from Cantabria and the Basque region. Colonized most of modern day Spain. Their language is known as Spanish.
>Navarrese
Originally from Navarra. Colonized most of Aragon and parts of Valencia. Their original language was Navarro-Aragonese. It got totally eclipsed by Castillian when the Trastamaras took control of the Aragonese Crown
>Catalan people
Originally from Catalonia colonized most of Valencia and Mallorca. Their original language was Catalan which degenerated in Valencian and Mallorquin

>But wait that means that most Spaniards are descendants from Basques

Who was the bigger autist: Hitler, or Cripple-kaiser?
12 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>3574970
Without the Kaiser and his autism, Hitler's autism would've never been known to the world. Hitler was a reactionary and it didn't matter who won the First World War, as whoever lost was going to get shafted. Germany was going through some real shit times that led to Hitler becoming Chancellor. Germany was a cultural and intellectual center of Europe when Willy was in power, and his autistic need to have a bigger navy and colonial hold than his cousins helped usher in a massive war beyond the imagination of everyone at the time. It's still very close though, because the degree of Hitler's sperg out dwarves that of Willy, but Willy sperged out of nowhere and over nothing.
His entire handling of the country was autistic as fuck:
>Not understanding the significance of the Reinsurance Treaty when he decided not renew it.
>The First and Second Moroccan Crisis
>Wanted large military so he could dress up and march in parades (essentially an IRL LARP).
>Would retreat to his room for weeks or months at a time when things didn't go his way.
The guy was not fit to lead, took a great situation and threw it in the toilet. Hitler took a bad situation, made it a little better for a few years, but then threw it right back in the toilet.
>>
>>3574970

Germany in 1913 was a great power with a huge navy, a colonial empire, a powerful army, and the economical and cultural center of Europe. If you had to pick a time and a place to be a king, then this would surely be it. Kaiser Wilhelm had that, and he fucked it all up by giving A-H a blank check to start a global war.

Is it weird that this made me feel bad for Willy? He just seems like a lonely old man grasping at relevance.

you goys always shit on Germany for their massive chimpout, but you never give any shit to France for THEIR massive chimpout which lasted from 1789 until 1815.

The entire nation of France completely went nuts for over two decades, destroyed the entire european continent permanently and destroyed every notion of conservatism and traditionalism that had held europe together for centuries.

Who would win

25,000 Pre-Marian Legionaries commanded by Scipio Africanus

25,000 Imperial Legionaries commanded by Trajan

Comitatenses > Kataphraktoi > Imperial Legionaries > Pre-Marian Legionaries

Comitatenses were specifically equipped to deal with cavalry and also had better equipment and training than their Legionary predecessors

Kataphraktoi would pretty easily trounce the Imperial Legionaries but actually might've had more trouble with the Pre-Marian Legionaries because of their spears

Imperial Legionaries would have way better armor and training than their predecessors and so they'd probably clinch it

Trajan without a doubt. For starters, they'd be career veterans instead of random citizen conscripts, and secondly their equipment, training, and auxiliaries would be better.
>>
>>3576875
I tend to agree, while noting that Marius was, I think, a better general (not to say Trajan was a slouch) which might make it into a closer contest.

Haiti was the most hated country in western world on par with Bolivia. They are responsible for crossing more african than one can imagine. Looking to invade their neighbors and impart part of the African American diaspora is of haitian origin or part haitian. Dominican Republic and majority of carib were home to european plantations. And like rest of spanish carib speakers are distrusted because they gave themselves Bolivar names. Under Bolivar people renamed themselves. Bolivar had a form and Caribbean Spanish loyalists had another form. And it could be used for later invasion. Ecuador was conquered by slaves from the Iquitos regions, old ecuador limit. The modern ecuador is part of the old Cauca region of Colombia. No they werent. Slaves conquered small parts of caribbean south america as well...

>After promising his full support to several Dominican frontier governors and securing their allegiance, Boyer ceremoniously entered the country with around 10,000 soldiers in February 1822, encountering little to no opposition. On February 9, 1822, Boyer formally entered the capital city, Santo Domingo after its ephemeral independence, where he was met with enthusiasm and received by Núñez de Cáceres who offered to him the keys of the Palace; Boyer rejected the offer saying: "I have not come into this city as a conqueror but by the will of its inhabitants".[11] The island was thus united from "Cape Tiburon to Cape Samana in possession of one government."
