Románš is a language spoken in Karolia and the Ardisphere. It is technically part of the Romantish language family, although it has become quite markedly changed from the languages spoken in Uletha. It is closely related to Meridonian. The language is understood to have been introduced by settlers arriving in western Karolia in the early medieval period, although some scholars believe the introduction was earlier than this and that some Iron Age Karolian tribes were gradually introduced to it. It is spoken by around 8% of the Karolian population today.
