All Modern-Day Countries Ever Controlled by Turkic People
If I were asked to name an underrated ethnic group, I would probably mention the Turks. Turkic people don't get mentioned all that often in the history books but they more or less helped with shaping history. 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 Turkic people will be ethnic Turks and Turkic-speaking minorities. Former countries that did not assimilate during their occupation of Turkic lands (e.g. Tang dynasty) are not considered. Turks that occupied other regions and lost their identities as time went on are also excluded. Hunnic controlled regions are highlighted but not included in this quiz as they are believed to be Turkic but not enough backing information exists
Tributaries and regions under heavy influence are included
While this probably is not perfect, this map should be a rough representation of how far Turkic powers have reached
