A king who gave his name to the Latins.Latinization caught on and everyone spoke Latin, except for geeks who stuck to Greek.
Being perverse, the British when ruled by Rome didn't really take to it, and eventually invented Anglish, which they even more perversely called English, and stuck in any Latin words they fancied, which in their perverse way was quite a lot. Still, anything is better than Greek.
