Hetalia Theory by PsychoDemonFox Hetalia Theory by PsychoDemonFox
See, I guess I should explain this one. (WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS!)

In the anime/manga series Axis Powers Hetalia, there are "ChibiItalia" chapters focusing on a younger Italy. And one of the characters in it goes by the name Holy Roman Empire, who eventually befriends Chibitalia before having to leave... and never returns. Fast forward several years later, and a grown-up Italy is (rather reluctantly) joined by the character of Germany.

A commonly-held theory is that Germany really is a grown-up Holy Roman Empire... he just can't remember it. And since the characters each represent a different country, this apparently makes since from a historical standpoint. (Also, if you look at pictures of Germany and the Holy Roman Empire, don't they look an awful lot alike?

Only time will tell if this is really the truth or not. Until then, I'll just have to cross my fingers...

Same here. To me Germany and HRE look way too alike to be considered two separate persons :\

I support this theory definitely. Not only do they look alike but Germany was part of the HRE (actually where it started) until the end of it in 1803

Honestly, my theory is that Chibitalia Italy was really close to HRE, and he looked a lot like Germany, and so thats why when Italy is older, he seems really attached to Germany, because he reminds him of HRE.

Germany was part of Holy Rome... and so was part of North Italy.

Yeah, I agree. The designers wouldn't be THAT lazy. Plus, it's all about history. And everything points to this theory. My question is: when and how are they going to revile it?

it is, GOSH! why dosent anyone knows the history of germany, germany ( in the real story ) was holy roman empire germanic, after rome got down ( my english is realy horrible, sorry :p ) because germanic nation ( like I sayd, my english is poor, so Ill write in a diferent way ) was ataked by the romans, and after rome got down, was formed holy roman empire, in 1618 was the "war of the 30 years " ( 1618-1648 ) and holy roman empire got down ( because it was just trying to "get up" after some crisis - I dont need to say all the history g!- and then started the war ) and after they got down, and in 1871, after a lot of wars ( with napoleon and bla bla bla bla- a lot of wars ) was caugh by prussia as a state, and now, germany ( is a very tiny resume okay, is because I dont need to make a class and teach '-' XD )
the point: germany was the holy roman empire germanic
( and my english is really bad! LOL )

Two flaws: One: Holy Roman Empire dissolved into a lot of different countries. By that standpoint Lichtenstein is also the Holy Roman Empire.
Two: They do look simalar, yes. But they are both Germans. They are bound to look simalar.

YAY! SO MUCH AWESOME IN THIS!

I think Himaruya also mentioned that Chibitalia gets a nice ending... which means... Doitsu could actually BE HRE! *dies of fangirl bliss; is a GerIta supporter*

History Lesson Time!
HRE did fall,As everyone knows. But it came back because it still had some land the country hadn't lost. This they turned into the German empire,Which soon became what we know now as Germany :)
So in reality,HRE is Germany. But I have no clue if they will make Germany and HRE the same person in the show.

Um, no. The Holy Roman Empire was succeeded by The Old Swiss Confederacy,
Dutch Republic,
Confederation of the Rhine,
Austrian Empire,
First French Empire ,
Kingdom of Italy,
Kingdom of Prussia,
United States of Belgium ,
Principality of Liechtenstein and
County of East Frisia

Not German empire. that was after Prussia. Please get your face straight before tryin to convince people wih said facts.
