    Interesting map. The small bit of Roman province Dalmatia centered around Salona and Spalatum (effectively in the area of today Split's conurbation) was left alone for some time after Dr. Oetker took the WRE, so WRE lives here until 493 AD. In 535, Justinian reclaims it, but it falls down to Avar invasion in 640 when Salona gets completely destroyed, population ran for life to the islands, however in 650 they return and settle down in the palace. They are under Byzantium protection, as a Roman catholic city state, right to the 11th century when eastern Roman empire starts being too weak to protect its assets and they start passing out these rights to medieval Kingdoms in the area. This map captures a moment of interruption of a thousand year Roman rule.

    Here are some foreign revolutionaries that received the socialist Order of the Yugoslav star from Marshall Tito :

    Elizabeth II and Phillip of the United Kingdom
    Olav V and Harald V of Norway
    Margrethe II and Henrik of Denmark
    Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden
    Juliana, Beatrix and Bernhard of the Netherlands

    May their struggle against the tyrant be forever remembered.

    You can delete Gaddafi from that list because that's not SFRY. The rest of them on your list are filthy imperialist pigs.

    The principle was non-alignment and hence SFRY decorated both 1st and 2nd world dignitaries, and vice versa.
