Interesting map!

I've been interested in Ottoman history for quite a while. It's a shame that the Ottoman Empire is remembered in the West as a symbol of tyranny and brutality. People fail to remember the good parts about the Ottoman Empire. Its decline was inevitable, though. A lot of the non-Turkish people in the empire wanted their freedom.

My Albanian ancestors had left the Ottoman Empire a few hundred years ago to live in Italy, so the Ottomans would have been part of my family history.

I'm sorry .. My English is not very good ..
In Arabic : لم يحكم ابن رشيد الشام ولا شرق الأردنّ ، إنما كان حكمه على نجد وحائل وبادية الشام ، جنوبها .

I don't know any Arabic, but here is what Google translate says.

هذا هو التاريخ البديل. فإنه يظهر الأحداث التاريخية التي لم يحدث في الواقع. ذلك على الرغم من فعل رشيد، لا تحكم سوريا والأردن في عالمنا، في هذا العالم البديل فعلوا. التاريخ البديل المثير للاهتمام للغاية، وهنا مزيد من المعلومات:…

Cyprus was leased to Britian because of the Crimea war. But the British never returned it back.

Historical Romania looked like that. Calm down.

Really ????
You know what i think ?! I think you're very stupid just by saying an ignorant thing like that. Historical Romania, includes other provinces that are missing from this map, such as, Bucovina, Transilvania, Banat, Crisana, Maramures, Pocutia, Transnistria and Timoc.
And keep in mind for other times, don't ever tell a romanian what historical Romania looks like, we know better, we don't need some ignorant foreigner to tell us how it looks like !

You understand that your single comment could have you banned for flaming, correct ?

I am far from ignorant, and your own arrogance astounds me. When Romania gained independence from the Ottoman Empire it consisted of Oltenia, Wallachia, Dobruja, Moldavia and Bukovina. That is what it consists of on the map. Over the course of the next century it gained territory from Imperial Russia and Austria-Hungary, lost territory to Hungary, and in its current form no longer owns Bukovina, Moldavia or Bessarabia.

"Historical Romania" means its post-independence form, why you couldn't understand that is beyond me. Don't act overtly arrogant because you couldn't understand something. Goodbye.
