Nice quiz thank you - but you're early on Great Britain. No such thing until 1707. Before then it was England (apart from a very brief period under the Commonwealth).

In defence for the quizmaster, already the referred map is wrong on this issue. Please correct to England (including Wales and Ireland) and Scotland. PS: Nice Quiz! :-)

This has been fixed. It's a bit complicated since, though England and Scotland were technically separate, they had the same monarch. The area listed includes the entirety of Great Britain as well as Ireland.

Well, modern Australia and Canada also share the same monarch but are technically separated nations, right? ;-)

It was a bit different in the time when the monarch actually ruled the country.

That was part of Spain in 1700, it became part of Austria (Habsburg dynasty) after the war of Spanish succession in 1713.

I tried Papacy, Piedmont, Sardinia... At least the first two ones should be accepted.

i agree on piedmont, since it is present also on the map cited as source. On the contrary, Sardinia would be incorrect because the savoy dukes were granted possession of the kingdom of sardinia only in 1720

I don't understand why England and Scotland are counted together since they were separate countries until the Act of Union (1707), yes they had the same Monarch, at the time William III and Mary II, but they had different institution, for example in 1707 there had been the first election for the Great Britain parliament, before that there were two parliaments.

wasn't it considered England-scotland-netherland and Scotland-england-netherland at the beginning of 1700? because of the dutch king there and stuff?

Good thing that Austria works, Habsburg Dynasty is correct as it's name. But Spain was also controlled by its own branch of the Habsburg family. (The last one died in november of 1700 and got replaced by a Bourbon). And that's a bit confusing.

Please accept Piedmont, not just Savoy. Should have gotten that early on, especially since it's practiced elsewhere: Brandenburg-Prussia, Denmark-Norway, Poland-Lithuania.

But according to that map Brandenburg, Saxony and Bavaria were part of the Holy Roman Empire? And why isn't Moldavia/Wallachia included?
