Wilson Kane wins a fortune and his future bride at a game of dice from the former pirate Balthasar. When he decides to go and get the girl, the pirate way, by kidnapping her, not only he finds out that she is more than a pirate could ever want from a wife... but that she has 4 identical sisters as well. This discovery hits him when his men, who were supposed to help him out, each kidnaps a different girl... and none of them gets the right one! But Wilson Kane wants the girl he had met and no one else! Luckily for him it will be the girl herself to solve his problem and put an end to his dilemma... a solution that will eventually fling her into a world of adventures on the Mediterranean sea.

It is neat how even though I don't know french...Its' roots are close enough to English that I can prettymuch understand what they said... lets see how close I can translate... "No! Killer, Murderer! let Me Go Monster!"..." The Moor...Help me...My baby"...."Madam Calm yourself, We are not Slave Merchants... We are Pirates"... "My Baby...Jean Baptiste"

you got that!
I picked French words that were all trasnferred into English afterwords :D to make it easy tomunderstand.
Yes you're right french and english are from the same ethnies, english folks used to be ancians gaulls from the north they are both celtic peoples. English is a mix beetween french and germanic languages so it looks a little bit like german too. And french is a descendant of latin languages so I can understand a little bit  italian (I don't speak it though) and spanish for instance (I've learned at school but I forgot evrything since I don't practise).

Well consider that English is the only language belonging to the German family that contains 75% of latin lexicon - the first Christian monks introduced Latin to the anglosaxons population, the Norman invasion introduced the first French as official language for very long time, then during the Renaissance books were only meant to be written in either Latin or Italian (especially scientific essays) and that's how Italian words came into English :)
History of the English language is fascinating going from the pronouns imported by viking languages to the development of the vowels and their shift in the XIV century. 
I think the funniest joke about the language is still the one in the beginning chapters of Ivanhoe were to explain the differences between Normans and Saxons they take for example the use of Pork and Swine XDD I always loved that joke.
yeah your right it's also due to the fact that Rome colonised all the contries of the  meditarannean sea and had 2 empires one in west ( till 476 after Jc who was invaded by the barbarians ) and one in east ( constantinople who finished in 15th century and was invaved by turkish). Also the romans were one of the only people with greeks to have a written Right( the other were oral laws). the latins left a grand impact in europe for sure. And their codes were used by barbarians too which found them useful because the vikings and the francs used a lot of customs wich oral .
Then with the emperor Constantin the power of christianiaty and the catholic church increased and as you say it was the copysts monk who introduced it to the populations (in fact the bible was translated from aramaic to greek to latin and to the other languages later) . Latin and greek were both erudition languages.
