Huge credits to :iconarminius1871: that did all the basemap and the rendering work.

Follow up of our collab with :iconarminius1871: about a surviving Frankish Empire (arminius1871.deviantart.com/ar…). It's a facsimile of an educational linguistic map. It represent all the Vernacular languages spoke in the empire and the lingua francas used in the different areas by golden doted lines. In the west they use a Oilic Romance variety called 'Roman' or 'High-Roman' and in the east a Low-Middle German variety called Frankish.
Poland and Hungary being vassals of the Empire instead of strictly inside it, they use officialy their own languages. 
In Italy, a lombard variety is used as lingua franca along Frankish and High-Roman.




In case you're wondering, i didn't do the infobox bordure entirely by myself, there's a premade bordure you can do in Adobe Illustrator.

It's a very nice map, but I have no idea what I should be speaking instead of Portuguese.

Thanks!
Galasturian is very close to OTL's Portuguese or Galician, it has just some influence from Leonese and Asturian making it a bit like a castillan-portuguese hybride even if the Galician-Portuguese component is stronger.

That looks great! It's huge. The language distribution looks a lot like in otl. Would war eventually break out between them and the Ottoman Empire?
It's a good idea, and a good way of showing the lingua francas. I don't know if there's anything you could've made better xD

Thanks :) (that's what she said :P) Yeah, the PoD was too late for having huge alienness on that, the only area where there is a big difference is Spain.
Well maybe again. If you go check the first map that Markü did, you will notice they have been set back a bit inside Anatolia. They probably will want to take their revenge.

Aha, i'm happy that somebody noticed ^^. I think you're praising to much, I'm pretty sure i could have done better xD But again thank you :)
