In the western side of the empire, the power was divided between many kings and other bitches. Barbaric tribes such as Germans attacked to the empire and destroyed it.
On the other hand the eastern empire survived for another millenium and the power of the emperor was still in just one hand. Constantinople was the capital of the Roman Empire. Sultan Mehmed of the Turks had a blood lineage to the Roman Imperial family; his predecessor, Sultan Orhan I had married a Roman princess, and Mehmed may have claimed descent from John Tzelepes Komnenos. And he claimed the throne of the Roman Empire. The city had fallen in 1453 and ''Fatih'' (the conqueror) Sultan Mehmed II claimed the title Kaysar-i-Rûm ''Caesar of Rome'' "Emperor of Rome" and as the Roman Empire he proclaimed himself the protector of the Orthodox Church of the Estern Roman Empire. The claim was recognized by the Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople, but not by Roman Catholic Western Europe. He appointed the Patriarch of Constantinople Gennadius Scholarius, whom he protected and whose status he elevated into leader of all the Eastern Orthodox Christians. As Emperor of Rome he laid claim to all Roman territories, which at the time before the Fall of Constantinople.
Pope thought about sending him a letter to invite him to Christianity. In this letter he promised to recognize his claims and make him the emperor of the western empire as well. But then he thought that Mehmed would never accept this invitation and did not send the letter to Mehmed. So the monarchs of the Ottoman Dynasty were also the Roman Empires. Here is the beginning of the titles of Suleiman the magnificent: His Sacred and Imperial Majesty Sultan Suleyman Khan, Emperor of Rome, Sovereign of the House of Osman...
The Ottoman Empire was true heir of the Estern Roman Empire. ''The first Rome was Polytheistic, the second was Christian and the third was Muslim: the Ottoman Empire.''
me. really. my grandfather from 15th century was a captain of the turkish fags. he was a turk also. while he was giving the ransom to byzantine empire (a turkish prince was prisoner in constantinople) he saw the daughter of the emperor. they loved each other at first sight. next time they decided to escape. and they escape from secret tunnels of sultanahmed of and they fleed to turkish lands. he continued to be the commander in turkish army. he was very close to imperial palace. we have those records of the line of family. so from my grand grand grand... grandmother, i am the true heir to the throne of the roman empire. you may suck my imperial cock.
- Part of the glorious, genuine Western Roman Empire master race - First part of the Roman Empire before Rome and the whole Italic peninsula themselves master race - Speaks a Romance language master race - Created a massive empire master race - Imposed its language and culture master race
>>54803875 i have to stop you there my horse arching friend notice that finland's note states that it is "free of soviet taint" you were conquered by the soviets in 1945 and stayed like that until 1991, and thus the ugrics cannot claim imperial succession as your finnic brothers do
wouldn't the napoleonic empire and HRE be the same thing? I thought his ultimatr goal was to btfo everyone then crown himself emperor of HRE. And I mean, being emperor of HRE wasn't much in that time but then he'd kinda have both defacto and dejure roman inheritance
>>54812701 There's no US military bases in Norway though, never was. There's a NATO base with a German commander at the moment, and a storage somewhere else in Norway for the USMC with Humvee's and Abrams to make it easier and faster for the Americans to deploy to Europe in case of war.
