What country use to speak Latin?

There are no countries that speak Latin. Vatican City bishops and the Pope speak Latin but only in prayers. There are also a group of Monks in New Norcia, Western Australia, who read and write in Latin. The Vatican City still uses Latin, as well as British courts.

In this regard, where is the origin of the Latin language?

Brought to Italy about 1000 B.C. by a group of Indo-European immigrants from Northern Europe, Latin begins as a local tongue of a small territory on the Tiber River, called Latium. It soon spreads over a larger part of Italy and, with the Roman Empire, to a big portion of the known ancient world.

Who invented the Latin language?

Latin was originally spoken in Latium, in the Italian Peninsula. Through the power of the Roman Republic, it became the dominant language, initially in Italy and subsequently throughout the Roman Empire. Vulgar Latin developed into the Romance languages, such as Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Romanian.

When was the Latin language created?

At this stage, Latin is the language spoken by several thousand people in and near Rome. 6th century BC — Earliest known Latin inscription, on a pin, which says "Manios me fhefhaked Numasioi", meaning "Manius made me for Numerius". Only a few other inscriptions predate the 3rd century BC. 250-100 BC — Early Latin.
