Indeed - the Frankish Empire has no meaning - Carolingian; Merovingian (but wrong date) or Empire of Charlemagne

I thought this was a great quiz! 18/18 Second Try, the Venetian Republic was a bit tricky, never heard of it before. But I personally think the best learning comes from trial and error. Just curious, isn't the Carthaginian Empire as big as some of these countries (Out of curiosity, no correction intended)? Also, why do the Babylonian and the Assyrian Empires have a "Neo" with a hyphen before the name?

There was another Babylonian empire before the second one. The first Babylonian empire was conquered by Assyrians.

Googled "Venetian Republic" and I stupidly just realized the nationality tense: "From Venice."

Fun quiz; a few tweaks might be useful. IMO it should take "Soviet" for USSR; "Charlemagne" and "Carolingian" for Frankish (just as it accepts "Alexander" for Macedonian); and "Mogul" for Mughal. But on the other hand, right now it accepts "caliphate" for "Abassid caliphate," although there were four caliphates over a 1300-year period. (The Abassid was the second and the Ottoman was the fourth.) Since a caliphate is just a territory ruled by a caliph, that's maybe a bit broad -- kinda like saying "empire" or "kingdom" and having it auto-fill the right empire or kingdom :-)

Well I always get confused with muslim caliphates so I just tried arab (hoping arabic empire or caliphate would get me somewhere, though I didn't expect too much) and it got me abbasid caliphate... I think it's a little too easy that way because as you mentioned there are multiple caliphates and I may have been able to remember abbasid, but it's far from certain...

Unfortunately, the Klingon Empire will still be in existence hundreds of years from now, so it doesn't really fit in a "Former" quiz ;)

Very enjoyable quiz. Pretty easy if you're like me and waste a lot of time looking at historical maps. I only got stuck for a bit trying to remember the right name for "the one that Charlemagne ruled."

Couldn't it be argued that the Frankish empire was also the HRE, as Charlemagne was crowned as Holy Roman Emperor?

Well I suppose that from a muslim perspective France, the HRE and such were all called Frank kingdoms... But still the HRE is more like a state that emerged from the Frankish Empire rather than the frankish empire itself.
