Quote from: "NicknameFromRonny"
is silly.
Makes no sense.
The Belgians Caesar referred to were a bunch of tribes he kind of made a new name for. He called them glorious, brave and all other, cause he get to fight them and he wanted to be famous. Those tribes were wiped out. Completely new people (Germanic tribes and stuff) came living here. So there is no "Belgians as a people that go way back". There are just Belgians from the last two centuries.

I knew very well about that, but that is one of those things we Belgians conveniently like to leave out of our story  :P  :lol:  :lol:

The full quote from Caesar's Bello Galico about the Belgicae btw goes: "Horum omnium fortissimi sunt Belgae, propterea quod a cultu atque humanitate provinciae longissime absunt, minimeque ad eos mercatores saepe commeant atque ea quae ad effeminandos animos pertinent important, proximique sunt Germanis, qui trans Rhenum incolunt, quibuscum continenter bellum gerunt"

which comes down to "Belgians are the bravest but they are also backwards, uncultured barbarians who don't trade and spend their time fighting Teutons"  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  (but as I said, we Belgians prefer to conveniently forget about that last part)

Nevertheless One great Gaul, Ambiorix did kicked Rome's butt big time once (Caesar did came back, wiped out his tribe but they never got Ambiorix)
