    Ok not to go offtopic - i'm asking about a "viking" that "died" - aka was destroyed in the Far East, which in Europe is concidered you know Syberia, Japan, China etc..... Georgia on the other hand is part of Europe, so i'm not asking about vikings who died there, in Armenia or even in my home country Bulgaria wich had the "pleasure" to be visited by a future king - Harold Hardarada.
    Hope it helps but that viking fought alongside a "corean" agains larger eastern force. it should be really easy now.

    sure go ahead. yep in that battle died two ottoman vassals - Constantin Dragases and king Marko, who in a strange twist of fate later become very popular throughout the Balkans as a fighter AGAINST the ottomans. strange thing is the folklore

    1: It seems correct; his father, and most likely named him.
    2: Ab urbe condita, Livius*
    3: Probably Homer, although considered fiction

    *Interesting, since I translated some parts of his work. Namely Hannibal ad portas.

    I would like to see some answers!

    As possible questions:
    1: What links the Russian empire to the heritage of the Byzantine Empire?
    2: What unit scored the highest during the Battle of Britain?
    3: Who was crowned the first terratorial emperor and where?

    Those who are afraid die a thousand deaths, the brave but one..

    2. i wouldnīt dare to disput

    3. what do you mean by "terratorial emperor" ?

    HI I AM NEW SO DONT MAKE FUN IF I ANS ALL WRONG
    1. BASRAB-> FATHER KING

    2.The earliest example of alternate history appears to be Book IX, sections 17-19, of Livy's History of Rome from Its Foundation. Livy contemplates the possibility of Alexander the Great expanding his father's empire westward instead of eastward and attacking Rome in the 4th century BC. His main question is: "What would have been the results for Rome if she had been engaged in war with Alexander?"

    3. The Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World: from Marathon to Waterloo a book written by Sir Edward Shepherd Creasy and published in 1851
