Hi, it took a long time to do this kind of map. First, I downloaded a high-quality map of Europe in 1815. Then, I used a pencil and drew all the borders. I gave every path the classical JetPunk yellow, grouped the answers when I needed to include islands (that‘s maybe the point why some answers don‘t show up when you go with the mouse over it). I downloaded then other maps to know the areas of Scandinavia (which were cut in the 1st one) and to get more detail about all these German states. Finally, I removed the maps and took a JetPunk blue area for the sea into the background - Voilà!

This is a great quiz, thanks, the map is amazing, I get lost trying to remember the German and Italian States.

I was wondering at the separation of Sweden and Norway though - thought they were a Union under the Swedish crown from the Convention of Moss in 1814 until Norwegian Independence in 1905.

1) Great job! 2) But...^^ it is a pity that so many countries are missing. There are only 19 out of the 35 German states listed. Two Italien states are missing (Cospaia, Massa and Carrara). Also the Ionian islands are missing. Finally Montenegro has still been part of the Ottoman Empire in 1815, although its authonomy.

Pre-1871-Germany was a cluster of many kingdoms, duchies, principalities etc. Since many of them are so small, they wouldn‘t have appeared on the map. That‘s why I wrote that smaller German states were put together. For Montenegro, I used this map: https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Europe_1815_map_en.png

Level 68
Feb 16, 2018
Pre-Napoleonic-Germany was a cluster of many tiny states, past-1815-Germany appears to be managable (about 35 sovereign states). It would be just an even greater job if those are included as well. By the way, Andorra, San Marino, and Liechtenstein are actually smaller as many of the states you neglected, what appears a bit inconsistent. ;-) About Montenegro and those other puppets of the Ottomans: they have not been sovereing state de jure, however enjoy large autonomy.

Montenegro had de facto independence at the time, and was ruled by Prince-bishop Petar I, and was by no means a puppet of the Ottomans, as you falsely claim.

From Wikipedia;

"The replacement of Venice by Russia was especially significant, since it brought financial aid (after Danilo visited Peter the Great in 1715), modest territorial gain, and, in 1789, formal recognition by the Ottoman Porte of Montenegro's independence as a state under Petar I Petrović Njegoš."

Hey there. This is a great quiz, and I think the map is really well done.

I suggest accepting "Hesse-Nassau" and "Hessen-Nassau" as answers for Nassau. The Duchy of Nassau, which existed in 1815, is different from the Province of Hesse-Nassau within Prussia, which was formed in 1868. I think however, that accepting these as alternate names for Nassau would make at least a little sense, given how broad the scope of accepted answers generally are.

First mistake would be Lübeck.The 1815 Congress of Vienna reconfirmed Lübeck's independence and it became one of 39 sovereign states of the German Confederation. Also quiz should accept Sigmaringen as the full name was Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, it lost the name Sigmaringen only after annexation by Prussia in 1850.

This quiz is nice. Although I don't think Norway should be in it (Sweden-Norway was still a thing. Hence if it is added there should also be Ottoman Vassals like Serbia, Walachia and Moldavia (Or the constituents of Austrian Empire)). Also, Hohenzollern should also accept Sigmaringen, since it's Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen. Also, I think that Thuringia ain't a thing, but should be Saxe-Weimar and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (I think those are the regional ones big enough to recognize)

In 1815, Norway was still a part of Sweden. They only got their independence in 1905 after almost a millennium under Danish and Swedish rule.
+1
Level 55
May 2, 2021
Not exactly. Sweden-Norway was a personal union, which is two or more separate states united by the same monarch, while still having their own laws, constitutions, government, etc. in contrast to Denmark-Norway, which was a real union.

While not fully independent, it was definitely not part of Sweden itself.

+1
Level 79
May 2, 2021
It's a complicated case and the map creator can legitimately decide either way: "Sweden, aided by the major powers, forced Norway to enter the Union [by a military invasion!]. On the other hand, Norway, aided by the same powers, essentially dictated the terms of the Union." (Wikipedia) But I'd prefer to go for one country, as they had common foreign policy and thus were presented as one to the rest of the world. Besides the 1814 Swedish attack and some thinking to repeat it in 1905 ...
