This is how 95% of writing decisions get made TBF 😂Because it's a cool name...
Optimatoi would be a cool name too, if you want to go in that directionI imagined they'd be more into Byzantine LARP than copying a Catholic order for said elite paramilitaries, but yeah, that works.
Why all Bosnia was renamed Herzegovina? Historically, Herzegovina was a small sowth-east (and moslty Croat populated) corner of Bosnia-Herzegovina around the city of Mostar.
Herzegovina was chosen as the supposedly 'neutral' name for a territory consisting of Croats, Bosniaks and Serbs and ruled by an Italian.Why all Bosnia was renamed Herzegovina?

"Saloniki" was chosen as a 'neutral', international name for the city. The local Macedonian, Greek etc. names for the city have official standing locally.Also, why Jugoslavia use the Greek name Saloniki, not Macedonian Solun?
The latter. The Chinese also keep a firmer hand on their client states than the French did OTL and they intervene in 1996 to make sure that OTL Jean-Serge is chosen as the next emperor ahead of OTL Jean-Bedel Jr. (Confusingly both are named Johann TTL.)So no riots over school uniform policy and presumably no canibalism inthe Royal Palace or if it never came to light?
