What made the latin people so successful compared to their germanic counterparts ?
The UK was indeed successful, but it was also heavily influenced by the french.

The germans didn't have as much colonies as the brits and the spanish. The colonizing of the new world was a priority of those two and the french rather than the germans.

Which, of course, if someone can explain what led to this? Why germans didn't conquer so much teritories as the others?

Germans had nowhere to go but east. Baltic is cold as balls. Half of Europe is modernized becuase of Germanization eastwards by Austrians, Prusians, etc.

Spain and France were the biggest colonisers of the Latin countries and both were into that game quite early and they were relatively centralized.

Germany didn't exist, Austria had to deal with the Ottomans. Poles, Swedes and such had to deal with Russia and each other.

The only 'germanic' people with access to the Atlantic were the Dutch and English really and they absolutely flourished.

I think it's entirely because of geography and thus the legacy of sea trade and shipbuilding, from Ancient times in the Med up to the time of colonial powers.
>>
>>587205
At the time when colonization began Germans were not united like the Spanish, French, or English.

The various German states were more occupied with eachother. The Austrians were first concerned with stopping the Ottomans and then with slowly taking over the parts of the Balkans the Turks retreated from.

That gotta be the German/Swiss/Austrian jews that fled during WW II
>>
>>587298
because germany wasn't a nation with a unified policy until 1871, and the only coast it has outside of the baltic is a small strip on the north sea

how much longer would the Spanish Empire have lasted if they managed to find someone, ANYONE, that knew or could even pioneer a monetary policy to manage all that fucking gold inflation
