Balkan aspirations - this map from 1914 illustrates the territorial ambitions of 4 nations: Bulgarians, Greeks, Romanians and Serbs. The Serbs and Romanians mostly got what they wanted, as did Greece except for Cyprus and Istanbul. The big losers here are the Ottomans and Austro-Hungarians, which makes perfect sense since they lost the war too. Though in all fairness , Romania lost as well , it's just that we went to War with Hungary in 1918 and occupied Budapest. So that was that :)
But fun fact ,if you look at the map , the whole Serbia-Servia mix-up came from the fact that the name used in the west came through the modern Greek language that pronounces Beta as V. This also happened with Spanish demonyms and toponyms as the Spaniards pronounce V and B very similarly (the Argentinians exactly the same) , hence Cordova/Cordoba , Havana/Habana.
Hell , come to think about it half of Europe still pronounces Romania as a variant of Rumenia : Rumunia , Roemenië , rumensk , rumener etc. So many languages retained the "u", while a few of them adopted the modernized spelling (English, Portuguese, Italian, Catalan, Hungarian and a few others).
