Partially updated. I'll have to take my time to look through them at one point, but München should work now.

Also, I think "Stauferstadt" should be replaced with "(Schwäbisch) Gmünd" instead, since the former refers to any city that has the status with the noble dynasty of the Staufer (Swabia).

How did you make the map?

Feudal fragmentation. One example could that if after a dynasty dies out or if there's a dispute in succession, there's a chance that the land that former monarch will get partitioned into even more different states.

Amazing map!!! As someone who has very little patience, I'd never be able to pull off something this complex, so I find it mind-boggling when someone manages to do it. This definitely deserves to be featured some day!

Thanks! I'm not the original author of the base of the map. However redrawing the borders, making extra additions and assigning the correct government type to each of them was very time consuming.

I have a question about the earldoms. Did they exist in the HRE? I cannot really find anything about it. I'm digging in the so called 'Kleinstaaterei' history so any help would be appreciated :)

I'm not really sure. The original author of the source map does mention that liberties were taken so obviously there are bound to be some mistakes here and there. I can however confirm that the states definitely existed.

I swear I think I know a good amount until I take a quiz on HRE subdivisions and beat 30% of people. Maybe it's because Bremen doesn't exist in my brain but Schwarzburg does.

Some of us have had quite an advantage over the others, having done this quiz for months and years. :)

Whenever it's re-set, it's as if you've never done it before, even if you know all the states by heart already. Nerds like me have already had as many as three first chances. I really love this quiz, though, and I don't mind doing it over and over again at all.

(What I do mind is being a philosophy fan and forgetting about Wittgenstein...)
