It's a great quiz... but I really think you could drop the 'empire' requirement. They're all empires and it's a suckie way to get a question wrong.

Please amend this quiz ASAP for consistency! Aztec and Inca were accepted by themselves and autocompleted as Aztec empire and Inca empire, yet Ottoman and British weren't accepted, apparenly because I didn't add "empire" at the end. Pick one way or the other, always ask for the word Empire or never, otherwise this just becomes infuriating instead of a nice quiz.

This would have been a good quiz (and I would've gotten four more correct answers) if I had known that I had to include "empire" in the answer. Change it!

I typed ottoman but it refused to take it

The British empire controlled 33% of the world's land mass, not 22

Though at some point, they would have controlled 22%, no? The inconsistent requirement for "empire" is a much bigger issue with this quiz.

You refused to accept Roman and British empires. And, since when was Nazi Germany a recognized empire anywhere but in Germany.
