But he’s not a Dane at all, right?
And if he’s saying he’s an antique Roman, he’s probably not just regular Roman.
I wouldn’t say, “I’m more a founding American than a Dane.“
All of the things have to NOT be who he is for this line to make sense.
Where is he FROM?
With a name like Horatio, he could be from another Italian city or another Latinate city, in say, Spain or Portugal.
But Horatio is really an Anglicized Latinate name, I think. Might he be English?
In Italian, Horatio isn’t really a name. Orazio would be the Italian version.
Is Horatio named for the Roman Horace (Horatius?) I can imagine that Shakespeare might name a character after him. He surely studied Horace in his schooling. Horace wrote iambic poetry.
