Alfred is not meant to represent Confederate America here and I don’t want to insinuate that Southerners are racist or backward.
Belize’s national anthem is the best:
"O Land of the Free by the Carib Sea,
Our manhood we pledge to thy liberty!
No tyrants here linger, despots must flee
This tranquil haven of democracy
The blood of our sires which hallows the sod,
Brought freedom from slavery, oppression's rod
By the might of truth, and the grace of God,
No longer shall we be hewers of wood.
Nature has blessed thee with wealth untold,
O'er mountains and valleys where prairies roll;
Our fathers, the Baymen, valiant and bold
Drove back the invader; this heritage hold
From proud Rio Hondo to old Sarstoon,
Through coral isle, over blue lagoon;
Keep watch with the angels, the stars and moon;
For freedom comes tomorrow's noon"
Belize is mine, Himaruya is the owner of the other guys.
The Devil's Cellar (Tüüfelschäller). According to legend, Satan keeps his wine bottles here. There’s an official info sign showing a cuddly happy Satan hugging a tree.
Couldn’t find any ancient sources that mention Roman sympathy for Cleopatra’s kids but it wasn’t unusual for the public to pity defeated enemies like this. Parading and executing women and children was frowned upon.
Again, Augustus was not yet named Augustus when he was younger. He loved to throw parties involving alcohol, he just didn’t get drunk himself since he was a control-freak with a sensitive stomach. I actually like him in Rome (the TV series), even though he’s beyond creepy: www.youtube.com/watch?v=599Azv…
Caesar actually told them to suck his dick, I just like my translation better. The punchline is the same.
