Oh and I read burgers :hiding:
P.S. Cuba became an American protectorate
Good work on the quiz all the same, just, seems like an arbitrary and confusing distinction.
And I personally wouldn't include Australia now... but the quiz is "ever" and I'm fairly sure I would include Australia before 1900 when it was unambiguously part of the British Empire.
However, by standards, English is considered a Germanic language. I'm not a master of this subject but there are several articles you can find online explaining it.
It is possible to include that, but it would make the quiz a much easier version of the regular CotW, so I don't plan to add that, sorry for any inconveniences

I'll add that the next time I update this
-Russia was ruled by Catherine the Great was born in Stettin, Prussia. Her husband (and predecessor) Peter III of Russia was born in Prussia (Kiel) too and could hardly speak russian.
-Depend on how far you want to go back in time: There were Germanic Tribes in northern Africa around the year 500. Specially the Vandals come to my mind.
But to be fair this is just nitpicking and the quiz is amazing.
I also did completely forget about Vandals in North Africa. I'll add that when I get to update this next. Thanks!
2- There are multiple spots on the map if you look closely. It's just that I only highlighted Hankou (modern-day Wuhan) with a dot as I thought it'd be too small to be visible.
3- Didn't know the dynasty became a branch of a German royal house. I should probably add it

1. No, they never reached that territorial extent before the end of the Habsburg dynasty in 1700.
2. Washington was never under full Spanish control and only claimed as part of the Nootka Territory.
3. Scots and French people are not Germanic.
