/his/, Who are the true heirs to the Roman Empire?
>>
Western Roman Empire => Holy Roman Empire => Empire of Austria
Eastern Roman Empire => Imperial Russia => Finland

Rome==>Byzantines==>Turks

Rome fell in the 1920s, never forget.

...We've been over this again and again and again.

The Roman Empire was utterly destroyed during the Fourth Crusade.

The barbarians won. It's over.

>Implying a massive empire that spanned several centuries, many dynasties, dozens of nations, countless religions, at least 2 successor states that each lasted a thousand years, multiple different government systems and is the foundation of modern society could have a single successor state.

Venice. Since Venice is gone, no one.

They have claims to both halves.
As Holy Roman Emperors, to the Western half.
Also, the Catholic Monarchs bought the title of Emperor of Byzantium from the last heir. They were grandparents of the Habsburgs.

But then, you could argue that the Spanish Bourbons are the real heirs of Charles V.
>>
>>674200
The Habsburgs have no claim to anything. Napoleon and Bismarck saw to that.

If we're go with bloodlines, then after Russia it was the UK as those monarchs weren't deposed and are still blood related. However, after the U.S.A. declared independence and adopted a similar system to the Roman Republic, you could say if the US went imperial they'd have a claim too.

I just hope I live to see the Martian colonists secede from the United Empire as the true "Sons of Mars", then take over the solar system.
