I typed in a misspelling of Persepolis and it counted as Hong Kong.

Numbering the list with roman numerals kind of hints who's top of the list ;)

Nice, I like it! Although, I would suggest adding either Washington D.C. (the capital of one of the most powerful countries in history) or some South American cities

Thank you! D.C was in my "next five" with Moscow, which basically go hand in hand as they were and to some extent still are the most powerful cities of the last 100 years, but i would rather take some cities who have been around for the last 400 something years and still be major.As for the south american cities, what suggestions do you have? I put in Tenochtitlan for central america because that seemed like the only "major/important" city in all of central/south america. Im always open to changing this list as i take all suggestions/additions to this list into careful and thoughtful consideration.

For example, Cuzco in Peru kind of plays along the same concept as adding Tenochtitlan, as it was the center of the Inca Empire. I can't really think of which other ones have historical significance, but I'm sure they exist.

I feel like vienna should be on here as well, maybe instead of Thebes or Memphis. It still has modern significance ( an independent study said it was the 4th most influential city ) and It was the capital of the Hapsburg empire and head of the HRE for a while, it was the capaital of the austro-hungarian empire, and it has the UN as well.
