I really enjoyed this. A couple of comments:

1) Consider adding ancient empires (Rome, Carthage and various caliphates) that controlled parts of Africa;

2) Consider African empires that controlled parts of Africa (Mali, Songhai, Kongo, Zimbabwe etc);

3) Perhaps where a country controlled only part of a country, indicate this. For example, the Netherlands only controlled a small part of south-western South Africa, not the whole country;

4) 99% certain Norway never controlled any part of South Africa (I am South African). If you have more info on this though I would love to learn about it.

Great idea for a quiz, well done!
