>>68259 Romania interests me a lot but there does not seem to be much written about its origins (In English at least). I really want to know how the Latin (and eventually Romance) language managed to hold out in that area once Rome withdrew.
>>68320 OP here. I'm actually romanian, but any country would exaggerate some of their feats while intentionally omitting others, so /his/ seems a good place to ask, much better than /pol/ and their memes
>>69619 OP here I actually read that as a young child. I was referring to the period between the third and ninth centuries (roughly), some hungarian historians (with obvious motivations, but still interesting if one tries not to be chauvinistic) have openly stated there is no proof for daco-romanian continuity, even though there are obscure references from one of their own so-called Anonimus, chronicle-maker of "king Bela", also unclear which Bela exactly. Thank you for your help though, it means a lot to me
>>68320 People adopt languages. Like how people today of Irish, German, Mexican descent speak English in the U.S., the same thing happened throughout history. Like how Hungarians are pretty much genetically the same as Czechs/Austrians, but speak a Uralic language. Slavs moved in and picked up the language that would become Romanian, and it expanded outside where the Romans originally settled. Modern day Bucharest was outside of the Roman empire.
>>70136 I never said there wasn't any mixing. But over the centuries any differences genetically were kind of bred out. Like Hungarians, for instance. In the year 1000 many Hungarians, especially the elite, would've clustered quite closely with western Eurasian populations, but nowadays they're just like other central Europeans, even though their language is different.
