It's Byzantium. The Mongols conquered China, doesn't make them part of China, it makes China a part of the Mongols.
@ToddHowardsParents, i mean to be fair, it did specify that they considered themselves still romans, i don't think the mongols were previously a part of china and wanted back in so much as to plunder it
@ToddHowardsParents, but they are literally the Eastern Romance Empire that never ended. So it's literally the same empire.
@Finndogs, you're wrong because my feelings say so
Loving this themed year old update. Wait how?
@MILLIONSAREDEAD, I don't know. There's been a few in the last 2 weeks, there was a 5 or 6 pic 8 month old Shaggy update, there was a 2 or 3 pic 4 month old politics update, and now this.
@MILLIONSAREDEAD, it’s because some pics don’t get posted to the “recent” section until they reach 50 upvotes in the uncut. I posted a pic that I forgot about until I found it in random and upvoted it (from 49 to 50 forgetting I was the one that posted the pic) and then got a notification that said congrats your pic is now in recent.
Y’all want some more info on this, extra credits on YouTube made a series about Justinian/Theodora that covers the Byzantine empire
They did reconquer Africa/Italy, but lost it pretty quick
