Shitty maps Bernd 07/28/2018 (Sat) 13:54:48 [Preview] No. 18124
I've seen a lot of maps like these popping up recently. I'm guessing these come from people who learn European history through Paradox games. This hurts my eyes.
>us wanting to unite with the Swedes, let alone the Dutch and Austrians
>Balkans, let alone the ENTIRE SLAVIC WORLD wanting to unite
>apparently, Istanbul and much of Asia Minor is Greek, yet Königsberg and the rest of Prussia is Slavic
>the Flemish are part of pan Latinism
>Cornwall being that big

>neither are Caucasians represented in the Caucasus
>Ossetia isn't included as part of the Iranian world

I agree that map is absolute horse manure.
Frankly if we would correct the map based on nationalism, then that map would be more fragmented than Europe is now. There are lots of groups who consider themselves ethnic minorities and expressed their wish for self governance even in the past few years. We had a discussion on this in the Catalonia themed politics thread and in the elections thread as well.
Con-nationalism can exist but the participant nations who are forming the supra-national entity should be let to experience their own nationalism and let that mature so they can appreciate the other would be participants similar sentiments.
This map is just who-belongs-to-what language family mixed in with the notion that we-should-chuck-them-together-even-if-they-would-hate-each-other and plastered with Nazi symbolism.
Yeah, the creator was probably a Paradox-gaming Amerilard.

Hmm. I don't think that even authors of these maps take all this very seriously.

>us wanting to unite with the Swedes

Actually, why? You are very closely related, and you aren't Slavic savages who hate each other just because they can.

>Ossetia isn't included as part of the Iranian world

I don't think that modern Ossetia has anything related to Iranian world at all. They are assimilated to local Caucasian world long ago.

>apparently, Istanbul and much of Asia Minor is Greek,

For some reason. ideas of Greek Constantinople and resurrection of Byzantines is thriving in the heads of westerners.

>Balkans, let alone the ENTIRE SLAVIC WORLD wanting to unite

Yeah. that's fun, especially today. Although Panslavism isn't a meme - real proponents of this idea exist, and some part of population in all slavic countries are ok with it (although in some countries it is very small part).

In 19th century it wasn't even a joke.

Why are Slavs and Latins allowed to have a large exclave, but Magyars kept separate from the Finns?

Why doesn't Finland get any bit of Karelia?

Why doesn't Scandinavia get Åland? One would expect the author to be a stormfag with a massive hardon for Germanics and thus inflate their territory as much as possible.

Why does Scandinavia annex the Shetland isles, but not Orkney? The two archipelagos should be either fully Scandinavian or fully Celtic.

Why was the author such an idiot with regards to Brittany? He could give the "Pan-Celtic" state only the traditional Celtic-speaking tip or all of traditional Brittany. Instead, he gives it French administrative "Brittany" which is missing Nantes.

Why doesn't Hungary get its share of Slovakia, carpathian Ruthenia and Yugoslavia?

Why does Greece gain enough territory to become majority Turkish, but doesn't even get Northern Epirus?

Not even Paradox games are to blame for the author's schizophrenia, because he'd have made a slightly more reasonable map if only he had played Victoria II.

Remember the Kalmar Union? Remember when Sweden seceded, and the rivalry between our empires after that? That's why us and the Swedes are kinda at each other. The Southern Slavs I believe hate each other because of their religions, and how they write their language in.
>I don't think that modern Ossetia has anything related to Iranian world at all. They are assimilated to local Caucasian world long ago.
They're still very much Iranian. They're not Persian, but Iranian. They speak an Indo-Iranian language, they descend from the Scythians, the Sarmatians, and the Alans, notable Iranian nomads, hell, North Ossetia in Russia is formally called "The Republic of North Ossetia-Alania". Many Ossetians today practice Uatsdin and other Scythian religion (29.4% in North Ossetia-Alania, and an unknown but notable minority in South Ossetia). I'd still consider it part of the Iranian world.
>For some reason. ideas of Greek Constantinople and resurrection of Byzantines is thriving in the heads of westerners.
Really, I'd give up. Moscow is already basically the successor to Constantinople to Orthodox Christians (the third Rome), yet they care so much about Greeks retaking Constantinople. You don't hear anything about Greeks wanting to "retake Alexandria", or "retake Carthage", or Germans wanting to "retake Bohemia + Moravia, Southern Jutland, Prussia and Danzig", they care more about Istanbul and Anatolia. There's no reason to take it aside from its strategic location, and it's not in the interest of Americans to take Istanbul, hell, Greeks don't even like Americans.
>Yeah. that's fun, especially today. Although Panslavism isn't a meme - real proponents of this idea exist, and some part of population in all slavic countries are ok with it (although in some countries it is very small part).
Yeah, if a union between the Southern Slavs failed, if a union between the Eastern Slavs (technically the Russian Empire and Soviet Union?) failed, and a union between the Western Slavs (Czechoslovakia) failed, a union between ALL Slavs would go totally well. Also, keep in mind that this Slavic state would not contain just the modern day Slavic nations, but would likely contain the Russian majority areas in Kazakhstan (which is apparently part of the Slavic world in this map), and Uzbekistan. Yep, that'd go totally well.

The odd thing is, as much as he is an American with absolutely no real knowledge of European history, he gives the Germanics the other end of the straw. Czechoslovakia gets to keep Bohemia and Moravia, Poland gets to keep Prussia and Danzig, and Flanders is apparently part of the "Pan Latin world". A true "Pan Germanicist" would include Flanders and the German part of Wallonia.

But this happened very long time ago. Now even non-related countries in Europe slowly going into somewhat-united state of EU (at least try). Do modern Danes and Swedes really remember all this union thing?

>They're still very much Iranian. They're not Persian, but Iranian. They speak an Indo-Iranian language, they descend from the Scythians, the Sarmatians, and the Alans, notable Iranian nomads, hell, North Ossetia in Russia is formally called "The Republic of North Ossetia-Alania".

Technically yes, but their modern culture is more like Caucasian/Russian mix. I don't want to make assumptions, but looks like modern Ossetian is related to Iranian culture even less than modern Irish-American to Irish.

Fun fact: manager of Russian football team, Cherchesov, is Ossetian.

>Yeah, if a union between the Southern Slavs failed, if a union between the Eastern Slavs (technically the Russian Empire and Soviet Union?) failed, and a union between the Western Slavs (Czechoslovakia) failed, a union between ALL Slavs would go totally well

Yes, idea is pretty shitty. But some people believe in this.

Some kind of union technically possible between Eastern Slavs because they are culturally close, but not in current political condition after that Ukraine thing. Although in far future or in alternative timeline it is possible. Union between Eastern and Western looks like fantasy, and any union between Southern Slavs and anyone looks crazy.

We're taught this in school, well, at least where I live in. Although Swedish-Danish relations have been getting a lot better over the last few decades, us Danes, and even Norwegians to an extent, have been at it with the Swedes for a long time, Sweden seceded from the Kalmar Union in the early 16th century, and wars went on all the way to the Napoleonic wars, and after that, Sweden forced Norway into a personal union with them.
>Technically yes, but their modern culture is more like Caucasian/Russian mix. I don't want to make assumptions, but looks like modern Ossetian is related to Iranian culture even less than modern Irish-American to Irish.
It's a mix of Iranian, Caucasian, and (partly) Russian. It's enough for Ossetia to merge with Iran, I'm not saying it should merge with Iran, but it's Iranian enough to join a pan-Iranian state.

>They speak an Indo-Iranian language, they descend from the Scythians, the Sarmatians, and the Alans, notable Iranian nomads
Or not.
The speculation that Scythians spoke Indo-European language stands on four pillars, and all of them are wonkier then the others. One being is the Ossetian argument, which goes like this:
>How do we know Scythians spoke Iranian language?
<We know because Ossetians are their descendants.
>How do we know Ossetians are the descendants of the Scythians?
<We know because Scythians spoke Iranian language.
The argument is built on a presupposition which is needed for the argument to fit. This is called circular logic and as such has to be discarded as an argument.
The funny thing the Ossetians probably are the descendants of Scythians. Just like many other nation, everyone from the Caucasus to the Oka and from the Vienna basin to the Volga (and even further east).

>we do know the Ossetians descend from the Alans
Nod really.
We do know that Ossetians are sometimes called Ossi (which could make them East German as well...) and the Alans called themselves As. Supposedly because even this isn't sure.
We also do know that the Alans in the 12-13th centuries and the modern Ossets say "Good day!" the same. But if we didn't know anything about Hungarians only that they have a greeting Szervusz! and that on the area of pre-1920 Hungary were not one but two Roman province we could conclude Hungarians descend from the Romans!
>who were very much Iranian.
Maybe.
On the other hand there were a tribe of Turkomans called Alan and al Biruni said they were living with the Pechenegs.

But let's say Ossets descended from Alans and Alans are Iranians. This doesn't make them Sarmatians or Scythians - and proving these two peoples were Iranians - because Alans are more likely related to Sogdians and Khwarazmians and came from the east from the Caspian and not north of the Caucasus and the Black sea.

It's hard to say. They were ethnosocial group, more social, than ethnic. But they are non-existent as group nowadays, late Empire and then Soviet Union completely destroyed them and assimilated. Modern cossacks are true cosplayers, although some specific culture still remain.

But if we'll take assumption that they exist (on map), Kuban need to be painted as cossack state, not Circassia. Although it is debatable if cossacks and remain of Circassians are truly different people now.

>were the Rurikids all just Slavicized Scandinavians?

There are two large approaches in Russian historical community. First is Norman theory - as name says it is about Scandinavian influence. It states that Rurik and Rus people were Scandinavians, they first colonized/conquered/acquired lands that were sparsely populated by Slavs and controlled them until assimilation (few centuries at least, judging by names of rulers). That theory is supported by some archeological (especially in north) and historical records, and was dominant in some periods of Russian history.

Second one is Anti-normanism, it states that Rurik was a Slav and Rus were Slavic tribe. Proponents of this theory also has some archeological support (especially negative-style support, i.e. no large amount of Norse artifacts in some places) and some linguistic and historical evidence. Rurik may be western Slav or someone from Baltic region, but not Norseman.

Both theories replace each other as dominant in some historical periods, this struggle is very political by itself, because it is related to nation building and other things.

I, personally, think that Norman theory is better and has more evidence, but I'm not a historian at all.

I'd say the Norse theory is more likely. Most contemporary sources describe them as Vikings, Ahmad ibn Fadlan, Ahmad ibn Rustah, the Slavic Primary Chronicle all describe them as of a Germanic phenotype, practicing Norse paganism, and with Norse armor and weapons. Also, literally all the Rurikid Varangian princes up until Sviatoslav had Norse names. The only ones I see who see the Rurikids are the Turboslavs, hell, I see most people who spout out "WE WUZ RURIK" are from Poland.

They say "Genghis Khan was a Slav" and then provide shitty evidence, although they do have the point that some of Genghis' grandchildren were Russians, his remains had Mongoloid haplotypes, he lived in the steppe, and he was a redhead with small eyes, typical Mongoloid features. The Tatars? Slavenski. The Rigveda? Slavenski. They also deny that Slav comes from slave, because the Swedes, Anglo-Saxons, even the Arabs enslaved them. They have such an inferiority complex that even Afrocentrists want nothing to do with them, and call Polacks "native Albinos".

Frankly Germanics are the leading masters in that. Everyone else are dwarfed by them.
Btw Slav really ain't coming from the Latin word for slave even if I say so sometimes in arguments with Slavs but these occasions are less and less because there's no point, so this only reduced to the level of banter with Northern Hungarians. If I remember correctly the Sclaveni is always mentioned together with Antes who were (most likely) also Slavs and their name can't be connected with to word slave.

Yes, Germanics are very ethnocentric, according to them, the ancient Greeks were Germanic, the Indo-Europeans were Germanic (wasn't around 40% of Germanic vocabulary non Indo-European?), the Scythians being Germanic (apparently, they have a Celtic connection, they're mentioned in Irish mythology), the Zulus were Germanic, the Germanics were the first to discover America, showing ancient sculptures in a non-Germanic civilization with blue eyes, and everything with blue eyes is Nordic. Australia? Germanic. Indonesia? Germanic. Kosovo? Germanic. Kazakhstan? Germanic. Swahilis? Germanic. Aboriginal Australia? Germanic. If you deny my Hyperborean theory, and deny that not every culture was Germanic, fuck you. Celts are also very ethnocentric, they once said that megaliths in New Zealand are of Celtic origin, but they're still not as ethnocentric as us Germanics, the Slavs, and the Negroes.

As far as I know, there is multiple theories but they all weak and no real answer in sight. So, maybe it is really related to "slave".

There is also theory about word "Slava" - "glory", or about "Slovo" - "word".

Every race wants to claim (insert famous religious or political figure here) for their own. The reasons why I bring up Slavs in particular is that I've been seeing these videos that aim to debunk modern mainstream history, as they claim that ever since the Protestant Reformation, the original chronicles have been EDITED by modern historians, and they do this with highly academic sources on Turboslavism, how the Rigveda was Slavic, how Genghis Khan was actually a Russian redhead, how the Vandals and Huns were actually Slavs because they lived in Eastern Europe (let's keep in mind the Slavs didn't migrate from modern day Belarus and Poland until after the Germanic migration period), how there were giant Bosnian pyramids, etc. This YouTube channel called NewEarth in particular spews out shit about Hyperborean survival, and how all civilizations were linked or something. Although part of it is very much true, much of it is very, very misrepresented, or straight out bullshit. You might want to check it out.

Oh yeah, I remember slovo, especially because Poles call Germany Niemcy and we call Germans német which both supposedly means mute. I suppose we borrowed this word from the Poles as previously we just referred to them as Schwab (very popular) or Bavarian or Saxon (or if they lived on the Hungary they could have nicknames like the Zipsers who lived in Szepes county, now in Northern Hungary).

These maps showing Ottoman rule (I think they are on Wikipedia as well) are bugging me. The part of the Hungarian Kingdom we call "Royal Hungary" was never under Ottoman rule. They could lead campaigns that far if the Sultans really wanted but the real border was somewhere along the lines in blue.
However it complicates things that in the beginning after the death of Louis II (1526) two kings were elected, a Habsburg and a "national" king whom Suleiman I started to back and his son become the Sultan's kind of vassal/ally eventually but the little king was never crowned and neither of them payed taxes for the Sultan (which would prove them being his subject), the Principality of Transylvania - which formed on the lands of the "national" king - started that.
But. The kingdom itself was torn apart into to pieces between the two kings with claims on the part of the other's.
Again but: at some point Suleiman "adopted" the Habsburg king, Ferdinand and "gave" him the Hungarian kingship symbolically. I don't now how much weight this event put into the practicality of diplomacy tho.
Frankly the only real proofs that area belonged to the Ottomans is Suleiman's own writings which states he owns Hungary and gave it to whoever. But I could do the same "I own the United States of America" still it doesn't make me owner of anything.

Technically, part of the modern-day UK was under Muslim rule! Jan Janszoon, a Dutch Muslim pirate captured Lundy, an island in the Bristol channel that back then belonged to England before the Union of the crowns, planted an Ottoman flag, and used it as a base for raids. This was the same pirate who led the expedition to Iceland, in what the Icelanders call Tyrkjaránið (Turkish raid).

Aside from it literally being impossible for sub-Saharan Africans to live in Scandinavia without modern-day Vitamin D medicine, most of their evidence is shit. These people mostly just edit Byzantine photos to make them look darker, you can see those straight noses in "bleck wikangz" and "black keltz". Then again, if we look at actual scholarly sources from those periods:
>Never have I seen a people with a more perfect body than them. They are tall like palm trees, with blond hair and ruddy skin. From fingertips to their neck, each of them has a collection of trees, figures and the like. - Ahmad ibn Fadlan on the Varangians, or the Volga Vikings
>The Gauls are tall of body with rippling muscles and white of skin and their hair is blond, and not only naturally so for they also make it their practice by artificial means to increase the distinguishing colour which nature has given it. For they are always washing their hair in limewater and they pull it back from the forehead to the nape of the neck, with the result that their appearance is like that of Satyrs and Pans since the treatment of their hair makes it so heavy and coarse that it differs in no respect from the mane of horses. Some of them shave the beard but others let it grow a little; and the nobles shave their cheeks but they let the moustache grow until it covers the mouth. - Diodorus Siculus on the Gauls
And I've seen worse. I've seen worse! There's a forum dedicated to all of this crap called "Egyptsearch", an offshoot of it "Egyptsearchreloaded", and a shitty website based on highly academic sources from those forums called Realhistoryww. These people say that basically everyone in Europe, East Asia, Africa, and America were black until Central Asian migrants came storming into Europe massacred the black Europeans, and stole all their history. They say that the "black death" was given its name because that was when the black people were genocided, and replaced with Central Asian barbarians with elongated skulls. I've also seen people, namely this HIGHLY academic source from Catherine Obianuju Acholonu, a Nigerian "historian" that's apparently dead now, that say that Ogham was of sub-Saharan African origin, which is just sickening.
>Ogam (also spelled Ogham) was the earliest form of writing and communication known in the British Isles and in Scandinavia, where ancient traditions insist that it was introduced by the Druids, who, according to the indigenous traditions of the Isles, were Black African dwarfs and magicians.

Here's another not bad but kind of shitty at the same map, all areas raided or settled by the Norse. One of the main problems of this map is that it includes Norman conquests, like for example, Sicily and Tunisia, both were conquered by the Normans, who at the time were Francophones that likely had nothing left of their Norse descent, aside from legends, like for example, words of Greenland and Iceland.

I'm close to despise ethnic/linguistic maps. They are misleading with their oversimplification, they are missing the population density and geography layers what could give a realistic picture of the situation. Ofc this problem concerns Hungarians too and had serious historical and diplomatic consequences, so I'll give the Hungarian example.
In the first map you can observe Transylvania and how the ocean of Romanian majority surrounds the little islands of Hungarians. In contrast the reality is that in Transylvania great areas are simply uninhabited mountainous terrain but every fucking map gives the impression that Romanians living there.
By the same effort I could just take pic #3 and color everything with the color indicating Hungarians and get pic #4. Wow, so many Hungarians in Transylvania.
I'm pretty sure this is a valid complaint for other places all around the world but I've only have some knowledge on this.
Here's an interesting alternative from 1918:
https://mapire.eu/en/map/magyarorszag_1910-etnikai/?bbox=2472888.9368781797%2C5835075.586130443%2C2885648.889618132%2C5957374.831386725&layers=osm%2C126
If you use any script blocking plugin: I had to allow stuff for this map to work.
I know other maps had similar approach with these little circles/dots but this map was pioneer at that time. The map of pic #3 was based on this btw and has a little English comment too. The main criticism against it the usage of red as that color really grabs the attention and gives different, emphasized impression compared to the others. Later Germans used similar maps to redraw the map of Europe in favour of themselves.

There are ~20% of Russians in Kazakhstan now and ~3% in Uzbekistan.

In past there were much more (up to 50% in Kazakhstan, for example), because these lands were mostly unpopulated steppes where it is easy to became a majority. Most of cities were created as military/trading outposts, and local nomads rarely lived in cities at all. But in USSR times local population became dominant in cities, and anti-russian politics in 90s forced most Russians to move from Central Asia. Russians as ethnic group also have bad birth rate and negative population growth from 70s.

I guess now only Kazakhstan can be considered as country with somewhat relevant Russian minority, but demographic and migration trends will change it in near future.

Yes, that's true. It isn't even an US frontier, but real colony like with European powers. Actually, everything east from Urals is colonial land, but no one want to admit it (because Russia didn't had evil colonialism of course).

>punitive labor camps was also used to conquer Asia
>Crime and Punishment.

It was mostly second wave, first were traders/raiders/fugitives. People who run from serfdom, bandits or just people who had nothing to do at homeland but was aggressive enough. Technically, cossacks (both Southern and Siberian) were these people, unorganized group of criminal-like men. Government also sent expeditions (mostly for fur, establishing outposts and grabbing money from locals) - they mostly used that type of people too.

Some notable people: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yermak_Timofeyevich https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerofey_Khabarov

Fun fact: most of Far Eastern lands and some part of Eastern Siberia are colonized by Ukrainians. There are plenty of Ukrainian last names, and some people even preserve local culture.

Although in commie times relatively wild and free spirit of Siberians was damaged by new waves of industrial migration, so colonial traditions are mostly lost.

I didn't, it's in the filename tho, and while I just searched for a linguistic map I chose that on purpose as it fits more to the topic of my post as the Hungarian maps - both posted and linked - were based on 1910 data. I think I made a mistake when I stated that the posted map was drawn after the linked one, I think it was other way around.
Btw picrel #1 shows the irl size of the map.

But let's move on to picrel #2, the Romanian "carte rouge" which was inspired by the Hungarian one. I'm sure a cartographer could name a bunch of "errors" cause I can a few just by blink one on this one. Prof. Merutiu made a lot of mess and it's very clear it was ordered with political and propagandistic intentions.
Look at the legend.
The map shows the Romanian ethnicity by percentages. These type of maps are usually come in several map showing the same area but with the percentages of the different ethnicities. Not this one tho. It says it uses two colors for the Hungarians but doesn't say which represents what percentage and the map itself uses only one color out of the two anyway. Moreover the Székelys are indicated with a third color on the map which isn't even in the legend!
All right this differentiate uninhabited areas with the introduction of "transhumanis migratory" =sheep herding territories. But it doesn't state explicitly that noone is living there, it's sign in the legend is grouped with the Romanian ethnicity and just uses a lighter pink shade thus giving the illusion that actual people living there who are Romanians.
The whole color scheme also gives the impression that only in a few counties in the middle of the country far away from the Hungarian border are settled by non-Romanians in majority. And one who really bothers to decode the map can figure out that this is true to a whole bunch of areas as well.

Given how the conquest of North Asia happened at the same time as the conquest of America with very similar methods and results, I believe historians should give it more emphasis and review it as a chapter of that period's European expansion - just on the opposite direction.

I'm guessing this question was addressed to me.
Almost. It's little bit too complicated for the morning to answer in depth so I might revisit this topic later this day or on the weekend.
In Székelyföld both in towns and in the countryside in the villages and farms everywhere the almost exclusive (some places 100%, in most it's over 90) majority are the Székelys. It can be discussed further if they are Hungarians or not, and this is part of the problem actually.
Outside Székelyföld the small settlements (villages, homesteads) by that time are dominated by the Romanians.
In towns outside Székelyföld the composition of the population is very colorful with mostly the Hungarians dominating, usually with a hair of a majority (barely over 50%). And we're talking about big towns, like Nagyvárad or Arad.
Beside these two ethnicities Germans and Jews were in notable number.
Due to the mountainous terrain, Transylvania is divided into two habitable valleys, and a bunch of small sub-valleys. Most of these places aren't suitable for big settlements. Most butifel landscape.
Also it's good to know that Transylvania today isn't Transylvania by itself. It's Transylvania and the Partium, these are the eastern lands from the Great Hungarian Plain which was governed by the Prince of Transylvania from the 16th century when the Principality came into existence. Most big towns outside Székelyföld (and ofc the German towns of South-Transylvania) is situated here.

What really triggered my autism was "British". Calling every country by a noun or every country by an adjective would be fine but mixing them is inconsistent.

Yes. Basically, some Italian guy in an IRC chat said once that "How powerful would a modern-day Roman Empire be?", and then it later derailed to every nation ruled by Italy, and then every nation ruled by Latins at all, and said how it'd be a "hyperpower".

I mean, it literally controls all of Latin America, most of the USA including some of the most powerful states like Texas and California, all of Canada, most of the Sahara, much of sub-Saharan Africa, most of southern Europe except the west and East Slavs + Germany, England and Wales, the southern Caucasus, the Levant, Iraq, and Bahrain (giving it a lot of Gulf oil), plus Sri Lanka and Indochina. Basically a hyperpower, I doubt even the super caliphate that Danish guy posted can rival it.

I guess so. So, yes, North Africa would've been western if not for the Arabs. They spoke Latin, were Catholic, and were colonised by Germanic tribes just like all of the former Western Roman Empire. Carthage was a city just like Rome before its conquest by the Muslims.

I think being Westerner is more like a mindset which comes from several sources. Firstly maybe these areas profited - directly or indirectly - from the colonization, then from the industrial revolutions. Their society was changed earlier by the Enlightenment then the "East" and their capitalism wasn't interrupted by communism. They rode a well fed horse - instead our skin and bone one - which resulted in a cushy life and ultimately in a different world view.

Btw I've no idea how fugging Iceland can have such high GDP/capita and HDI and whatever. Do they have their own Silicon Valley hidden somewhere? Just because their geothermal energy give them basically free power and heat this is possible. They have nothing else but fish, and aluminum. I bet their fucking banks give them free money.

>>18967
Yes, a modern invention; probably coined during the Enlightenment. I would suspect though that North Africa being cut off from Western Europe for so long by the Arabs and Turks is really the only reason why we don't consider North Africa closer to Europe though. Even Eastern Europe really never got cut off from the "west" until the Soviet occupation because of the Austrians.

Eastern Europe was always late in everything for various reasons - for example Hungary's middle ages endured to about 1711, the period of the Ottoman Wars not just prevented all progress but proved to be a huge setback - this made a continuously widening gap between the "two" Europe.
Islam was harmful to the Middle East as well. They had their Renaissance but that was just their swan song. Maybe it's too simplistic blaming Islam alone tho.

I find this map really annoying also, particularly the "celtic" regions. The very idea NI would want anything to do with SI is a joke, the Welsh hate the Cornish and Scotland hates everyone. The cherry on top is dividing England into it's own separate region, Britain exists for a reason. By their logic you might as well draw a line between southern and northern england too because there is huge divide in politics there.

While it isn't so much a conflict between the countries themselves, Northern Ireland still has Unionist vs. Republican riots on a fairly regular basis.

No beef per se but the NI view Ireland as backwards, one I recently spoke to quoted their legislation on abortion.

The European Union, a superstate kickstarted by Kalergi, a half-Austrian half-Japanese man isn't your go-to authority on all things Europe. Cyprus is geographically in Asia; just culturally closer to Europe. Same with many Russian republics being culturally closer to Asia yet in Europe.

After they elected Kurz they realized he just can't reach their high expectations and they need Orbán. So they gave him citizenship and elected him as perpetual chancellor. Then Orbán with a diabolical maneuver smuggled horse archers into Wien and made a surprise attack on Pozsony. After it's fell the Northern Hungarians saw that they are just Hungarians speaking funny language. The Austrians were so impressed they initiated the restoration of the Dual Monarchy led by House Orbán. Then Orbán made his son, Gáspár the basileos of the Monarchy as they founded their own church as well. The role of the basileos is both religious and lay, he is the heir of the throne and when he rise to that he will unite in himself the person of religious leader and emperor. Ofc Viktor won't die he only retreats to rest in the hills of Pilis and he will rise when need be.
