There's no such thing as the 'Romano-moorish' cavalry.
African officers, generals and legionaries in the Roman Army - yes. Described by the Romans as 'Moorish'- no, that's some morons trying to imagine the moors as something they weren't out their time frame.

this is a guess, but i think the reason they use the term 'moor' is because he was a black north african.

Probably, but that's a term that didn't come into common usage until well after the Roman Empire had fell, during the middle ages. It's well known about African troops and officers in the Roman army though, and the Emperor Septimius Severus was born in Africa.

Yeah, I've seen it...you're right about how the Jewish executives of Hollywood try to hide the fact that the history of the world was built upon our backs...

African doesn't mean Negro. Most all Africans in the Roman Empire were white. The range of White Africans extended well beyond the Roman empire. That's something these childish chimps around here can't seem to grasp.

Wrong. The character of Maximus in Gladiator had a similar career and personality traits as documented by Herodian to Claudius Pompeianus who was a Roman general of emperor Marcus Aurelius and even married Aurelius' daughter Empresse Lucilla following the death of Lucius Verus. It is even believed Aurelius may have wanted Pompeianus to succeed him as Caesar in preference to Commodus but was turned down.

You can't seem to grasp your own racism via using evil language.

How is free speech on an internet troll site racism? Why do I even bother replying, you having giving this no more thought than a parrot. You are regurgatory, merely spewing what has been implanted into your dull unconscious TV hypnotized brain.

It's known that African legions were stationed in Britain, there were plenty of black Africans evident in the Roman Empire and legions, this is a documented fact.
