Also, I can absolutely see all of the tiny European micro-state languages ("Luxembourgish" for example) becoming totallt extinct had the great power politics of the 1800s looked a bit different.
Mir wëlle bleiwe wat mir sin.

That's Luxemburgish. It is my language too. Luxembourg was much bigger once.

Bible mentions a bunch of peoples lost to history; Midianites, Edomites, Philistines, etc.
presumably they intermarried with each other and are now the Arab people.

there was a Native American nation called the Eerie. many of them were killed off by the Iroquois; the rest presumably melded with other nations (Delaware).

are the Ainu and Hmong still separate peoples?

The examples of "marginally viable" Native American chiefdoms being absorbed into their neighbors are probably too many to count.

On the other hand, somewhat representative of a regression back towards the 13th and 14th century larger mound-building people?
