      hi there,
      isn't italy quite a recent creation..? garibaldi and his revolutionary
      chums had something to do with pulling all the different bits of italy
      together in the 1800's, did they not?
      i think the area had been saturated in goths and lombards and other
      germanic adventurers before then. my own distant cousins, though our
      particular mob specialised in sea raiding, not overland migrations.
      raedwald and sigebert et al. in the land of the east saxons...long
      history of mercenary work within the empire.
      had some trouble with that christian king charlemagne back home but
      here in the colonies it was safe enough as long as you were discrete.
