The Romans wouldn't have won against Macedon if it weren't for the other Greek states' support. But honestly, I'm glad cynocephalae happened, because we showed the Romans how to be Greeks and the Kingdom of Macedon then, was tyrranical.
Italians are traitors to the Roman throne, by making Germans, "legitimate" Romans.

Guess you weren't around when this was crowdfunded. Big discussion about once more monetizing the fruits of 4chan. We pointed to icanhazcheeseburger and moved on, mad that we hadn't come up with the idea.

Haven't checked in a long time though. I see the hypercube is alive and well though.

It was the Macedonian zeal and them not changing their "tactics" which "copied" Alexander, and using almost only phalangites. If half these troops were Hypaspists, the battle would've been much different.
Hell, I'd fight for Rome back then, it might've not been Greek, but it was founded with Greek values.
HREians were not Franks, and Franks were Goths, so in extension, Germanics.

Frankly, the post-argead Macedonian Greeks were fucking assholes.
Charlemagne was a Frank, Franks descended from Goths.
Modern French are Germanics. Charlemagne didn't found the HRE.

Justinian, Basil and Alexius Komnenos.

Justinian spent all of the Empire's wealth and almost made it bankrupt just to reconquer Italy and some other former Roman lands only to lose them later on. This hurt them in the long run, especially during the war with the Sassanids.

It was enough to give the Popes a valid reason not to trust Emperors in Constantinople.

The Ottomans were a lot better at empire management than the Byzantines tbqh.

The Pope was that much of an idiot, that he thought that Irene was not a leader, but a German Frank is a more legitimate king.
There had been distrust of the Patriarchy of Rome since the beginning. Since the Roman Church wanted eclesiastic power over all the other 4 Patriarchies. They did this by forging the Donation of Constantine.
Plus Irene was a good leader tbqh

I wonder, if Justinian didn't totally fuck up Italy with his campaigns, could've Italy possibly gone the way of France?
Like, being ruled by some Germanic leaders for a while during the post WRE collapse turmoil, to then unify into a single unit like it already was and go on from there on our way instead of being fragmented into little city states.
I mean, Italian city states were cool but this fragmentation certainly didn't help in terms of geopolitical relevance.
>>
>>53830270
What? Justinian was an infallible emperor in his conquests, he and Belisarius did the opposite of fucking up in Italy. It's just that the Byzantines couldn't keep fighting 2 front wars all the time.
>>
Anybody would like some ships?
>>
>>53830412
Dude the peninsula was devastated by Belisarus campaigns, that period was probably the darkest period Italy ever went though.
Not saying he did it on purpose, but war does that.
>>
>>53830516
Well if the fucking Germanics hadn't pillaged the shit out of his garrisons, then maybe it would've have been better for Italy.
Belisarius was a liberator, not a conqueror.
