I felt like doing this. Cause I seriously support this theory and I don't see how it'd not be canon.
ALSO: In conclusion, if they aren't the same person, then they ABSOLUTELY have to be related
Did I ever mention I will cry if this is disproven? CAUSE I WANT HOLY ROME TO BE ALIVE DAMMIT
EDIT: HOLY BALLS PEOPLE THIS STARTED OUT WITH 10 COMMENTS THIS MORNING AND NOW IT'S GOT 111 OF THEM. But keep it coming I like getting feedback
EDIT 2: GUYS GUYS GUYS I REALIZED SOMETHING! Remember how I said HRE has an Italian accent and Germany has a German (duh) accent? Well, an addition to the theory is that Prussia probably found HRE injured, and raised him as a brother. Germany could have gotten his accent from Prussia! Prussia was East Germany, so his accent could have influenced Germany's accent.
