Yes, the Romans were the first to have wine and champagne, but it was made where France is today (it's just that at the time it was part of the Roman Empire).
In fact, the French now hav a trademark, so no one else can use the word champagne for drinks coming from elsewhere - there was a non-alcoholic English drink called "elderflower champagne" that had to stop selling under that name because of the breach of that trademark.

Czechoslovakia officially split into two countries on 1st of January 1993. There was no war, nor any sort of ethnic conflict preceding the split, the decision largely made by “political elites,” namely Vaclav Klaus (Czech) and Vladimir Meciar (Slovak), who then proceeded to become Prime Ministers of the newly independent countries.
There was no referendum and opinion polls showed that people were largely ambivalent on the issue. The pro-split politicians in Slovakia argued that the split was necessary because Slovakia, the smaller part of the Czechoslovak Federation, was often neglected economically, the more important manufacturing factories placed in Czech Republic, while Slovakia’s economy was based on agriculture and processing of raw materials. The two countries are historically different (the Czech republic historically part of Austria, while Slovakia was under Hungarian rule), have different (though quite similar) languages and are also dissimilar religiously, Slovakia overwhelmingly Catholic, while the Czechs have a large Protestant minority.

Light is all the colours in one. When it hits an object, the material it is made of reflects a part of it - we call the combination of all the light reflected its colour.
Since most of the objects have an uneven surface, the reflected light gets scattered - you can see it (receive the reflected light rays with your eyes) from any angle.
Materials like chalk, paper, etc. reflect everything. Its uneven surface reflects and scatters all the light that hits it and we call them white.
Mirrors are different. Not only does its surface reflect all the light, it also reflects it perfectly, because its surface is even.
So the mirror is either white (because it reflects all the light that hits it) or it changes its colour depending on the light that comes to it from other objects (what you actually see). Pick one.
