Latin countries? Spreading fear throughout Europe? Wut? My uncle used to say when I was young and discussed history with him; "When the last Roman died, the Italians climbed down from the trees."

Don't quite get the joke, care to slightly extrapolate? (Sorry)

Also I don't know, France went on a massive bender of rampage for a while, as did Spain and Portugal.

Also Romania's stress on its Latinitas is a relatively recent thing...

i guess the core of the joke is that compared to ancient romans the modern day italians are monkeys and don't have anything in common with them

Thanks! I sort of suspected something like that but wasn't sure.

To be fair, England, Spain, Portugal and France have (on and off) been in the top 10 of the most powerful countries in the world for centuries. I'd argue that all those four owe their success to the Roman Empire, if we're talking cause and effect.

I don't really think so myself. England, Portugal, and Spain mostly built it's power on naval warfare - which one of the "weaknesses" of Rome. Imperial France is in that case more similar with Napoleon even as the "Emperor" ;)

You also have to remember that after the fall of the Western Roman Empire the whole of Europe entered the dark ages - and most of the ideas or technology Rome developed was forgot.

I'd argue that Rome is unique, and you can't really compare any empire with it because they controlled most of Europe for a very very long time, and their Empire lasted for 1500 years.

I'm not saying that Rome lived on through those nations. I'm saying that those nations may not have enjoyed the boost they received had the Romans not conquered and integrated those regions into the Roman Republic/Empire. The dark ages may have reversed a lot of the civilization that had previously flourished in Europe, but there is nonetheless a noticable correlation between the "countries" that stayed on the top throughout the 11th-18th century and those that were Roman before, in my opinion.

That's a fair point, the exemption being Germany. An important exemption though.. You could also use your theory the other way round, and include Germany. Most of the barbarians tearing down the allmighty Roman empire was German - The goths, the vandals etc..
So maybe, just maybe, is the reason why the former Roman nations flourished 11-18th century not because they were a part of the Roman empire, but because the barbarians that once was so mighty that they defeated Rome itself, settled in these lands (I agree more with your theory though).
However, we could've written a book about this - and we still wouldn't have had a certain answer. We might both be wrong, or we might both be right

Well, the founding fathers did have a hard-on for the Roman Republic, hence why they chose the eagle as one of their symbols (like hundreds of other nations, duchies and provinces out there, I hasten to add).

It's a very interesting piece of history. I mean, while it wasn't nearly the largest empire of all time, it was certainly one of the most influential, one of the only with a legacy that lives on today, it basically birthed western civilization, set the foundation for a more modern impression of what a state is and should be - and if you count the period of the fall of Rome and the continued Byzantine Empire, it also gave Christianity a place in Europe and thus ascertained religious unity throughout the coming centuries, the spread of language, culture, education, the arts etc. There's a lot you can attribute to the Roman Empire if you think back long enough.

Gather round my children and let me tell you a story about the Romanian language. The Romanians come from the fusion of Romans with Dacians, who inhabited the land between the Danube, Carpathians and The Black Sea since forever. After king Burebista got their **** together they became such great soldiers that they were well known for their bravery (They also mourned when a baby was born and partied when someone died because that meant that the defunct left a world of wars and teeth decay to go in the afterlife where there's bliss and happiness and ****) and it took the Romans more than 6 years to conquer them (and not fully on top of that, since there still were free Dacians), including that one time when the Dacian king Decebal straightforwardly told the Latins to **** off if they cared for their lives and that one time when he dressed logs in Dacian armor and put them on a hill to resemble an army and the Romans actually bought it.   
Fast forward a couple of hundreds years later, there were Dacian units in the Roman army. One day during a campaign against some nomad tribes the food of a soldier fell off his donkey and to warn him another soldier said in their mother language : "Torna, torna, fratre!" which translates to "Go back, go back, brother!" in Protoromanian. That guy didn't hear it, but other soldiers did and they thought it was a  retreat order. As there was no noticeable threat nearby everyone lost their **** and ran back to the camp.   
 So basically the first sentence ever in Romanian made an entire army **** their pants and run away.

Most people don't realise that the Romanian language is very, very similar to Latin, and only bears a slight similarity to Russian. We just borrowed a few words from Russian.

only uninformed person would relate russian or whatever slavic language with romanian language. btw there's one small comunnitiy in istria (western croatia) that speak in a variant (dialect) of romanian language (not italian) . they're called histroromanians (cro. histrorumunji) and are considered successors of native romanised people. ofcourse, their language is filled with slavic words since they're surounded by slavs (croats and slovenians).

Yep, I heard of them. There are also arromanians in Macedonia, and there are more romanian communities in other countries.

Thanks for educating people, brat. Or brato. (one of them means brother in croatian, the other in serbian, if I recall corectly)

yes, in southslavic variant it's aromunji. other name (or other subethnic group, also romani) is cincari and they also mainly live in macedonia.
but the most known and numerous roman community in south slavic area are vlasi (sing. vlah). the majority of vlahs live in serbia, macedonia and bulgaria but they're spread throughout whole balkan. it's doubtless that they speak some roman language but it's still a matter of debate whether it's a romanian dialect or independent roman language. nevertheless, they are mentioned many times in histories of south slavic nations and are also, like histroromanians, considered remnant of native roman people that lived in balkan before the arrival of croatians, serbs etc.

you're welcome.

it's the same in croatian and serbian: brat

i know some romanian words which are actually names of folk songs that are popular among accordion and tambura players in croatia and serbia:
"inimioara, inimioara", "mocerita cu trifoi", "ciocarlia", "saltareata"

Quite the teacher you are, mate!

Didn't know that accordion players sing romanian songs! You croatians are cool. I met a Croatian guy here in Romania, he was from Durdevac (with diacritics on the first d and the c) and he was quite awesome.

thanks.

yes, accordion is especially popular in serbia and bosnia, they have excellent accordion players, but it's popular in croatia too. im not a musician expert but i could tell you that some romanian songs and folk melodies are popular among musicians because they're quite demanding, i.e. fast , have complex tonalities etc.

well i'm glad you met that guy but you shouldn't generalize. among croats there are idiots and nice people just like in any other nation
some people i know have visited romania, mostly bucharest and transilvania (dracula's castle). they liked it, the architecture, people, nature, prices (quite acceptable for us), and of course - women

greetings!
