Were called bird of gold. Gold was a presence in everyone's household, temples etc. Our religion is oldest in the world and we have highest amount of Gods. Our religion was renewed just to make it popular for longer as it was losing popularity.
Our religions books contain texts on modern maths topics and scientific inventions in astrology, biology(in Ayurveda),Grammar,etc. For example yoga in Rigveda, there are texts from Sushruta on surgeries like kidney stone removal, etc from BC. But books mention that God came to Earth to teach physicians about medicine,etc. Also that south Indians have the famous ritual of Arundhati star.
All of the epics from olden times were written in Sanskrit and in very systematic order. All of them had a fix no. of vowels in each line. We have Mahabharata of 100,000 verses and each line contains vowels while a verse is of 4 lines which is called Anustupa, in which all the vedas are written.
We never tried to extend ourselves more than the Indian subcontinent. Afghanistan to Myanmar.
We've had universities from before Christ. We also have 2 calendars which is in use.
We probably have the best history of all countries. We've had so much diversity because we let everyone enter the country. Also that I'm not a native of this land. No north Indians are. Only South Indians are native Indians as others came from Europe I think in the vedic period i.e. 2000BC.
cia used lsd on japanese civilians in 1970 to try and work on mind control
Nothing about Denmark's history is cool so id rather not
Let alone the controversial alexander the great stuff, we were a much bigger country before our "friends" split us up in 1912
Battle of Varna is interesting imo.
Murad II left his throne on 1444 to Mehmet II(conqueror of Istanbul). European nations wanted to took advantage from that(because Mehmet was 12 y/o when he became Padishah) and assembled all their armies to attack Ottomans. Mehmet knew that he was too young to lead entire army so he wrote a letter to his father that says: "If I'm not the Padishah, you should lead your army. But if I'm Padishah, I order you to lead my army", so Murad lead his army and won the 13v1 battle.
-We entered with the US in the Afghan war vs Russia which was one of the worst decisions to be ever made for our country since all we got was a refugee crysis and terrorists bombing us.
-We have a very strong rivalry with India over cricket
-Our language is almost identical to Hindi (obviously) but uses a Persian/Arabic script
-You can find great Pakistani, Indian, Persian, Turkish and Arabic food in Pakistan
-Street vendors. That shit was tasty and cheap as fuck
-People in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh seem to have the car's horn attached to the steering, since all you hear are the fucking horns. Especially in the big Indian cities (Delhi, Mumbai etc) and Bangladesh.
-Indians and Americans hate us
I can't talk about history since the Indian subcontinent is very diverse and everyone has different ancestry and a different story to tell.
Overall, my country is THE BOMB (no pun intended)
we dont have any mosque aaand we hate hungarians
Greatest Medieval army
First independent church after the Pentarchy
We rekted Crusaders
We helped Europe by saving Constantinople in 917 by the biggest Muslim attack ever
In 1494 Portugal, divided the newly discovered lands outside Europe between the Portuguese Empire and the Crown of Castile. The lands to the east would belong to Portugal and the lands to the west to Castile.
Once we ran out of butter I think. That was pretty epic. Had to import more.

Was one of the biggest empires, ruled half the world,one of the longest empire that ever existed, first global empire in history, coming from a rlly small country it was epic. not to mention almost everytime we fought we were outnumbered, sometimes 7 to 1, but still won.
Singapore is arguably the only modern nation to have been forced against its will into independence
The prince of Srivijaya, known as Sang Nila Utama, was shipwrecked on the island and saw a lion, naming the island Singapura, which means lion city in sanskrit. But there has never been any non-captive lions in Singapore.
Singapore changed hands between the Java-based Majapahit Empire and the Ayutthaya Kingdom in Siam (now Thailand). In the 16th century, Singapore became an important trading depot for the Sultanate of Johor, based on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. However, in 1613 Portuguese pirates burned the city to the ground, and Singapore vanished from international notice for two hundred years. (I googled this and didn't know about this)
Roman empire was the biggest on the entire planet and then collapsed cause of stupidity
Not much I can think off but maybe in 2016 where we had a referendum to leave the European Union which was passed with 17,410,742 voting to leave with 51.9% of the vote.
The great australian empire was the biggest on the whole universe . We fought with pride
We won a 1v4 and now every one is butt hurt
The south of the country tried to create its own state one time. It was called "guerra dos farrapos".
the racismers did bad thing
There are a lot of battles but for example the Battle of Kuju, Battle of Hansan Island, Battle of Maeso and Battle of Salsu.
Also, we had a Kingdom called Goguryeo which controlled parts of most of the Korean peninsula and parts of Manchuria, far east Russia and Eastern Mongolia, it was one of Three Kingdoms.
There is so much more, but I'm too lazy to write more.

No, you tell me about georgia
Constantly winning Cleaning Toilet world championships since 1990 when we left Soviet Union
The 100 Years War. Could say it was a French Game of Thrones... during the Black Plague. It's an interesting time. Both France and England lost 45-50% of their population because of the plague but it didn't stop them from killing each other (3 million casualties of war alone).
The conquests of Louis XIV.
The 30 Years War which started as religious, but turned political to weaken the Habsburg.
The Centralization of Power, economy and culture in Paris which led to modern France, modern French, modern French culture.
Speaking of economy, Paris holds about 30% of France economy, while all other provinces hold on average 4% of it each, if I remember correctly (it is an average number, some provinces may have more, others less but I oversimplified it).
French Revolution which created Nationalism, and the beginning of Nation States rather than Empires and Kingdoms. Napoléon united Germans under a single entity and did the same with Italy which spread the idea of Nationalism and led to the ideas f modern day Germany and Italy. Socialism which began with the French Rev. as well. More power to the people, more help to the people. I would say it was the beginning of Ideologies, and they led to Fascism and Communism. It took a while to do so but it destroyed all reach monarchies in Europe. German, Austrian, Italian, Russian, Spanish, and so on. (One could say the Revolutionaries and Napoléon were victorious in the end and monarchies fell up to over a hundred years after the original defeat of Napoléon).
France is the country with the most successful military History, having the most recorded battle victories, slightly ahead of England/The UK and won the majority of its wars, and participated in pretty much all major european wars.
Because it was always militaristic (because surrounded by enemies), it led to many words regarding army hierarchy and composition to be French, including weapons and so on.
For example: mousquet -> musket. Baïonnette -> Bayonet. Arme à Feu -> Firearms. Canon -> Canon. Trebuchet -> Trebuchet. Ranks and compositions such as: Corps, Battalion, General, Lieutenant, Corporal, and so on.
That leads to another fact: England was conquered by the Normans in 1066 (from the Duchy of Normandy) who were part of the Kingdom of France, and obviously subjects of the King of France. French became the language of diplomacy. Nobility and Lords spoke French. It heavily influenced the Anglo-Saxon language(s) and slowly turned it to modern English after over 300 years of French rule (approx. 40 to 60% English words come from Old French. Such as "table", "cat", "chair", "army", "march", and so on).
Another example is the motto of the English monarchy which is: "Dieu et mon droit". But also "Honi sois qui mal y pense" which is the motto of the Order of the Garter, an English order of chivalry still up to this day.
Apparently Brexiters would like to see any French word gone from the English language or mottos which shows how ignorant they are and how willing they are to destroy History, including their own.
That is all I'll post for now. Ask for more if you'd like. I have a good one about table knives. Not as cool as the rest, but a fun one.
we were defeat 70.000 serbian army with 800 ottoman soldiers
oh.. good old days
Stephen the Great!
47 years of reign
He turned Moldova into a strong state and maintained its independence against the ambitions of Hungary, Poland, and the Ottoman Empire, which all sought to subdue the land. Stephen achieved fame in Europe for his long resistance against the Ottomans. He was victorious in 34 of 36 battles, and was one of the first to win a decisive victory over the Ottomans at the Battle of Vaslui
We had nuke bombs but government decided being without them in 90s.
We were developing faster than Austria before the first World War, if it didn't happen, maybe we would be a tier 1 country
Battle of stamford bridge (battle of the bastards of 1066), plague and 22. July
Only country to occupy Moscow
We helped american to kick english out of america.
Today I can't say for sure if it was a good thing or not.
So basically in 1552, 2100 Hungarians defended a fortress from 40000 Ottomans for a month and 8 days. And only 500 defenders died. The Ottomans were like "fuck this, nothing works" and went home with a few thousand soldiers.
Then in 1592 7000 defenders gave up the same fortress after 3 weeks, so we got fucked by the Habsburgs' mentality.
1/4th of the world to 1 and 1/16 islands

Hello my Georgian brother! Hope you have a great day! Here some interesting:
The Baltic Way was a peaceful political demonstration which took place on 23 August 1989 when approximately two million people joined their hands forming a 600 km long human chain through the Baltic countries, thus demonstrating their unity in their efforts towards freedom.
