literally every country has history. every single one. how it came about, its people, everything.
I know you like to boast your history UK, but that's all you ever have. your future is brown and smelly.
Would moving to /balt/ be worth it? I know it's probably impossible, and they're irrelevant shitholes, but I like their irrelevancy. It keeps them safe.
Latvia and Lithuania were occupied by foreign forces for most of their history (Prussia, Soviet Union, European Union). It's not true that they don't have any, but their history was merged into that of their occupants.
Because of the suppression of their language at that time - people who were caught saying one single word in lithuanian or latvian were prosecuted - there has up to now rarely been any reformation of grammar or language structure unlike other european languages. therefore, there is no other language in the world that is closer to the original language of the indoeuropeans.
All in all, at least for linguistics and language studies, Latvia/Lithuania are very relevant.
Just add that we arent slavic and dont have slavic culture, then that summary is pretty accurate.
Also i wouldnt count occupation as history, rather what we were up to at the time of it
>occupied by foreign forces for most of their history (Prussia etc.)
Latgalia as well ;_; you all were nice pleaces in the PLC. Would be good to be together again.
every country has a history you moron or it wouldn't be a country in the first place, fucking get a course in logic, or are you saying that some history is less than other history? who are we to judge? history is not something positive or negative. it just IS the stuff that happened seen in the eyes of the posterity in the sources that get to them.
No, the faggOP meant we have no history, because we havent tried to conquer the world, but have been sitting on our spit of land minding our own business, except 1915-1920 and 1942-1945
>Napoleon or Alexander leading armies of thousands that will change the political landscapes of regions for generations
>as important as some pig fuckers doing nothing
Yeah bro, there's definitely no large scale events in history. WW2 is just as important as some Latvian guys getting drunk and pissing their pants.
>There is no such thing as a grand scale.
Significance on a grand scale means changing the region in a major way, or even the world.
Latvia's done nothing like that, while great powers have.
ask those two gentlemens about Latvia's history
Polish history is German history
>latvian riflemen save the riga front in ww1 then win the russian revolution for the bolsheviks
>latvian legion in ww2 hold the courland pocket together with army group courland for the whole war, btfoing soviet scum left and right, after the surrender of german forces keep courland under controll as partisans still btfoing soviets
>meanwhile 15th division is holding berlin till the last minute and was himmlers most decorated ss division
It was burned by couronians and oselians you, mongol chink.
>They took part with the Oeselians in attacking Sweden's main city Sigtuna in 1187. Curonians established temporary settlements near Riga and in overseas regions including eastern Sweden and the islands of Gotland and Bornholm.
Erik's chronicle says otherwise
>"They went on a and calm one that in the storm to Mälaren and they stayed quite secretly in the archipelago of Svea usually with the secret army. Once they got such a notion that they burned Sigtuna, burned it along the bottoms and the town did not get help anywhere. The archbishop Jon was killed there and many heathens were happy from it that the Christians were so unlucky. And the whole of Karelia and Russia were happy about it."
Also, you should stop lashing out on people that're related to your forefathers as you are genetically pred. Uralic
Maлopoccия, plenty of history, remember Kiyevskaya Rus'?
So much delusion. Latvia and Lithuania is baltic, mongol. Deal with it. Same goes to the sacking of Sigtuna. Burned by Curonians and Oeselians.
>The Curonians were known as fierce warriors, excellent sailors and pirates. They were involved in several wars and alliances with Swedish, Danish, Icelandic and Kven Vikings. During that period they were the most restless and the richest of all the Balts.
In c. 750, according to Norna-Gests þáttr saga from c. 1157, Sigurd Ring, a legendary king of Denmark and Sweden, fought against the invading Curonians and Kvens in the southern part of what today is Sweden:
"Sigurd Ring (Sigurðr) was not there, since he had to defend his land, Sweden (Svíþjóð), since Curonians (Kúrir) and Kvens (Kvænir) were raiding there." 
Grobin (Grobiņa) was the main centre of the Curonians during the Vendel Age. Chapter 46 of Egils Saga describes one Viking expedition by the Vikings Thorolf and Egill Skallagrímsson in Courland. They took part with the Oeselians in attacking Sweden's main city Sigtuna in 1187. Curonians established temporary settlements near Riga and in overseas regions including eastern Sweden and the islands of Gotland and Bornholm.
The Curonians had a strong warrior culture and are considered to have been eastern Baltic by some researchers, while others believe they were related to Old Prussians who belonged into western Baltic group.
>Kiev is Ukrainian therefore Kievan Rus' is too
>It keeps them safe.
Saber-rattling the bear, keeping Cold War 2.0 going.
lmao assimilated baltocuck on suicide watch
"In 1187 Sigtuna was attacked and pillaged by raiders from across the Baltic Sea, possibly Karelians, Curonian and Oeselian raiders."
It can't be verified who exactly sacked Sigtuna, but the contents of Erik's chronicle certainly point to them being Karelians.
Scotland, it has no history of being a country
Only the 13 original colonies can claim UK history as their own pre-Jamestown/War of Independence.
>mfw a western state tries to claim "they" beat us in the revolution
>it has no future.
God save the queen
We mean it man
And there is no future
In England's dreaming
No future, no future,
No future for you
No future, no future,
No future for me
No future, no future,
No future for you
No future, no future
Go back to meeming, Spurdo.
(f.y.i.: it has a language that has Gaelic roots just like Irish.)
I win, the only historical document that was written at the time of the sacking of Sigtuna clearly states that they were Karelians. You have literally nothing to back your claims up with.
Even though I don't think Latvians are Uralic like the other guy, It can't exactly be denied that 40% of Latvians and Lithuanians descend from a Uralic male whose descendants reproduced more than local native males as they had a privileged role in Baltic society eg. Gediminid kings. I don't know how and why this happened, but it can't be denied that it did. So try not to hate Uralics too much and be proud of being a Ural-spawned Indoshit.
>he doesn't know
ruled teh slavs etc. etc.
>uralics having privelege in ancient baltic tribes
This is as true as the ebin finnish empire founded in 83837382937BC.
Balts=/=slavs or mongol finn spawns
It was and still curonians and oeselians who sacked sigtuna
Kek another delusiona ebin memester
>last to be converted to christianity along with liths
What finns had?
>archers on horses
If you take Curonian kings and Latgalian kings as fact then you should also take the ancient Finnish kings as fact as they're also told about in sagas
>mfw fingols and shituanians argue about which shit ass tribe destroyed their "capital"
