as a Romanian, no thanks! Both austrians and hungarians had wanted to enslave us and take our lands, so keep your mouth shut if you suck at history!

Actually from the 3 partitions in the 18th century, the Austro-Hungarian one was the most beneficial for Poland if you look from a cultural and progression standpoint. It was the least "aggressive" also. Hmm, I wonder...

@monere

Yeah, true. Besides, you can't be sure of the future consequences of that, since it was relatively a long time ago (but again, it might have lead to a better world or not).

@blob2

That doesn't mean they didn't want our land. Least aggressive isn't non-aggressive.

Yeah, don't get me wrong. Agressors are still agressors. But seeing the current state of my country, who "rules" and decides about it now (church and venal social benefiters), I kinda now wish things would be different...

guys, let's not draw conclusions based on what MIGHT HAVE happened if this and that or the other. If we were to make assumptions the mongolian empire could be considered the best thing in the Universe since it's promoted science, justice and art. But this doesn't mean that they have not slaughtered millions of people, including women.

The same with the austro-hungarian empire, the roman empire, the ottoman empire, and all other cocksucking empires that have craved for our lands, riches, and women. We, Romanians, have been the victims of all these empires and only God had kept Romania alive.

We can't draw conclusion based on what this could have been, or what that could have done, and so on.

I also never heard about it in regular school or high school classes. I learned about it in university in my short time as a student of History.

So, yes, I like this one. But Austria-Hungary can suck a lollipop.

that explains it then. And yes, they can suck a lollipop, and I want to suck one, too ... lollipop, that is. I honestly have nothing against Hungary and Austria (I have actually had one good Hungarian friend when I had worked in Netherlands), but when an individual / nation / organization steals someone else's property... well, that's when my blood starts to boil.

Technically, Romania was the one to declare war on the Central Powers.

The premise of a 'Vlaho-Bulgarian Empire' sounds interesting and somewhat plausible, but the historical facts presented as proof are rather distorted.

not sure I understand this quote Count. What exactly are "the Central Powers", and what's this Romania declaring war thing all about? Romanians are not conquerors, we have stood our ground ever since people have colonized this Earth 500 million years ago, and if we have ever declared war on anyone they have probably deserved it because they have nurtured unholy thoughts towards us.

Yeah, it's just revisionist history from our side to be honest. But still, I prefer a Bulgarian empire to the rest that exerted influence in our area.

@monere

In WW1 Romania joined the fight against the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and the Ottoman empire) in 1916 after a relatively successful Russian counteroffensive on the Eastern front. Their participation was of their own volition with the express goal of seizing land in Austrian possession (Transylvania). The Central Powers sought numerous times to prevent Romania from becoming yet another opponent, as they were experiencing setbacks on several fronts. Romanian demands were however unacceptable to Austria since they'd have to part with way too much territory. The Romanian government, on the other hand, wouldn't settle for anything less and, believing the moment opportune, attacked. That's almost the textbook definition of aggression right there.

Of course, I'm not excusing earlier Austrian transgressions, neither am I putting too much blame on Romania, as most countries in their situation would have done exactly the same.

@DD

I agree, though in some regards I think Habsburg influence also proved quite beneficial. (And to be honest, Habsburgs>>>>>>>Ottomans; the difference between living under the yoke of the former and that of the latter is simply that great).
