    Basically just a reversion of Christianity and a revival of Celtic polytheism. The biggest difference iin the east is none of the Russian principalities have adopted Orthodoxy.

    I decided to make a better version of the map, and also explain some of my choices. I added the German regions. In the west is Burgundian German. It has many borrowed words from French. In the early 1800s it was standardized as Burgundy became the hegemon of the German states and is the...
