It should be underlined that Romani people came from the indian continent and only later they made a home of Romania..It may not seem a big deal but our romanian readers might feel offended by this kind of confusion. Also if I remember correctly in 1507 Romania didn't exist, there were only the principalities of Walachia, Moldova and Transilvania -- Killeras 23:38, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
Technically we saw them in the demo in 1511. but yeah.18.104.22.168 05:35, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
Is there even a leader for them?Or are they just random people on the street who you can just hire?
The Romani are meant to be a replacement for Courtesans in Assassin's Creed: Revelations so presumably they will behave in a similar manner. That is to say that they will be hireable on the street but have an actual guild/camp that Ezio will interact with so a leader of the Romani is likely. Also, please remember to sign your posts. -- ► Kaloneous ◄ ♣HelpDesk♣ 15:13, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
Name origin Edit
Their name doesn't originate from a confusion with Romanians; rather, it causes confusion in the modern day. Their name draws from when they entered Europe from Anatolia, settling in the Byzantine Empire, then still known as the "Roman" empire (Basileia ton Romaion), and sometimes even referred to as "Romania" in modern historiography. During the Ottoman occupation the area comprising modern Greece was called "Rumelia", reflecting this. I would make this change myself but the wiki page is locked.

The terms Romanie (and its variants) is from the word meaning "man" in their language. The terms Gypsy arose because the first Roma/Gypsies to enter Europe came from Egypt. No relation to Romanian, Roman or Rumelian. Of course the game does not reflect real history and the origins of the Roma are in Rajastan, not in Eastern Persia.

Trivia needs rewording? Edit
The current, and only thing under Trivia is confusing to read. Were courtesans not accepted in Ottoman Society or Romani? Because when you say "who were not accepted in the Ottoman Society," you are referring to the person you just mentioned, not the former.
