Yeah Canada is a real problem. I can't put the ocean thing around it, because it isn't an island nation, nor can i put a circle on it like for example for Andorra, because it's elongated. I was thinking of doing an arrow, but I can't figure out how to do that with classes and all.

What I did now as a sort of intermediate solution, until I have a better idea, was cheat a little and make the Canada portion a little larger. :D cheaky me

Can't you just save the Chinese Provinces SVG and then copy and paste the arrow into here?

The problem is, that i need the class node for "border country". If I had an arrow, I would want it to disappear once Canada is typed in, but then Canada would have to be a class.

It all went downhill for the Spanish Empire straight after this map was drawn, when Napoleon's troops entered the Iberian peninsula...

Another amazing Nathaniel quiz!!! It's interesting to see how much of South America and the U.S. Spain had. A couple requests. 1. Can you add in parenthesis next to United Kingdom what territory it is? 2. Could you possibly add a caveat saying, "Includes a modern day oversees territory of a European country"?

Thank you! I don't think that's really necessary, because of the Falkland War most people know that the UK own them and where they are approximately. According to the current stats 81% got them.

Errr noooooo. They were only held by Spain in 1800 as an intermission because the British presence was temporarily withdrawn when Spain allied with France during the Revolutionary/Napoleonic Wars. They were never held by any recognised Argentinian Administration ever, until the 1982 war.

The Iberian Union lasted from 1580 to 1640. The year we are looking at here is 1807.

This is very nice map and quiz, but it contains a few errors for 1807:

- Spain didn't hold any territory in Morocco then.

- Control over most of Mindanao wasn't established until later in the 19th century (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Moro_Sultanates_(Philippines).png)

- Spanish Guinea had some slightly different borders back then, stretching to Nigeria, Cameroon and Gabon which can be seen here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Treaty1777.JPG

Not sure if possible, but some quiz maps have "show missing countries" which would certainly help for this quiz.

That's all of Argentina/Chile that Spain controlled? Wow. I know that the south is pretty inhospitable, but I always thought Spain controlled the entire southern cone excluding Brazil.

They had lost Jamaica and hadn't yet gained Equatorial Guinea at the time of this map.

Could I just clarify Morocco here? Are the two dots drawn there to indicate Ceuta and Melilla? If so, they are not a part of present-day Morocco.

I believe the possessions of Spain in Morocco were larger back then. Although the locations might be around Ceuta and Melilla, they were more extensive back then.

Did the Spanish not control the Marianas islands back then? (That would add the USA for Guam and the Northern Marianas) I understand that rio de oro, rio muni and morocco were all taken much later as part of the scramble for Africa but didn't Spain's Pacific holdings date from much earlier?
