Many European royals have I, II, even VIII after their names, for example Elizabeth I, Elizabeth II, Henry VIII. Where do these come from?
The use of numbers such as V, VI, III after Kings and Queens is used to distinguish monarchs who have the same name. The numbering system is Roman (Latin). It is as follows below.
I - 1
II - 2
III - 3
IV - 4
V - 5
VI - 6
VII - 7
VIII - 8
IX - 9
X - 10
XX - 20
L - 50
C - 100
D - 500
M - 1000
So Henry VIII = Henry the 8th.
MMXIV - 2014
In China people tend to use "I 服了(fule) you" to express that he was totally beaten by another person's remarks or behaviors. What do you guys say when you feel this way?
There are many expressions in English that say similar things, most are country and even region specific, so an expression used in England may not be used in the USA or Canada but may be used in Australia and so on.
If you say something someone doesn't understand, the term flummox is used, that comment flummoxed him, which means the person was extremely confused (defeated) by the meaning.
Clueless can also be used in this manner, as can "can't think straight", "dazed" "confused" "befuddled" etc.
Many of the best ones I know involve strong profanities so can't be used here.
