All Modern-Day Countries Ever Controlled by Germanic People

Germanic people have surely been a major player in world history. Visigoths, Vikings, the HRE, Swedish Empire, British Empire, and the Third Reich are some notable powers you've most likely heard of. But how about we combine all the territories they've ever held into an ultimate Germanic Union? Below is a map of modern-day countries that were fully or partially under their rule, can you name them all?

For this quiz, the definition of Germanic people will be ethnic Germanics and Germanized minorities. Former countries that did not assimilate during their occupation of Germanic homeland (e.g. First French Empire) are not considered. Germanic people that occupied other regions and lost their distinct identities as time went on are also excluded (e.g. modern-day Americans)
Tributaries and regions under heavy influence are included
While this probably is not perfect, this map should be a rough representation of how far Germanic powers have reached

Wow. All I can say. Wow. This should definitely be featured, you put in some good effort. Just one tiny error: can you correct the capitalization on the title? I thought this quiz was spam because of it until I clicked on it.

Thanks! I don't see anything wrong with the capitalization though, it seems grammatically correct in this context. What's the error there?

"ever controlled" should be converted to "Ever Controlled". That's all. Only don't capitalize words like the, of, by, and, with, & a.

I don't think it matters as much. You don't always say "The Americans" for instance

Yeah, but in this case it's a title so it should be capitalised.

Jeez, the Germanic people almost controlled part of nearly every country in the world... 😅 It makes other peoples seem very humiliating, and little compared to this one great map you made! Great Job On The Map!

Why is neither the Spanish Empire (ruled e.g. by the house of Habsburg) nor the Russian Empire (e.g. ruled by Germans until 1917) included? Also Bulgaria and Romania had German kings.

Technically, everything the USA ever controlled (such as Cuba and the entire Philippines) should be included.

Eh... Well, it says "Americans". And Cuba and the Philippines will be included, as part of Spain (lol).

P.S. Cuba became an American protectorate

Well yes but no? I didn't include them since USA is too diverse and has far too many non-Germanic people mixed in to be counted imo
