Kind of a weird question, but what font did you use for this map? It's just gorgeous!

This map is excellent as always!!!

Why is Elsass-Lothringen separated?

1Blomma Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013
Because it was annexed in 1871

True, so you show territory changes with borders between 1871 and 1914?

Because never forget, it was right to take Elsass-Lothringen, 92% of it was settled by Germans,
France annexed it in the 17th century. Before especially Strassburg was an important german university city.

Yes, the map shows border changes between 1871 and 1914.

Not bad at all! :)

Though aren't the internal borders for Russian Poland usually shown?

1Blomma Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
Nope, since it didn't actually exist in a unified form after the 1860s.

Why do some Finnish cities have Swedish names instead of Finnish? Just wondering.. Anyway, great map!

To pile on, the Finnish cities that don't have Swedish names on the map don't have Swedish names at all. This is perfectly consistent. :)

All Finnish cities have Swedish names because those are the names that they were known as to the outside world before WW1. It was only after their independence that they started using the Finnish names internationally.

Amazing map! But I see you added Andorra and Liechtenstein, but not San Marino and Monaco... Any reason why? :)

The years represent the year that area was added to the country that currently controls it.

Very nice, the detail is phenomenal. How about a map of the German Unification in 1871?

I've been thinking about that but I am not sure yet what I will do.

There were a lot of border changes between 1871 and 1914. This would just be a map of mid 1914

You know he kinda covers these already... Look at the Balkans for instance: The lighter-coloured areas represent areas annexed there, with the date of annexation being given as well.

The only area where something is missing is the Middle East, with some minor border changes between the Ottomans and Persia being omitted and the Russo-Turkish War (1877-78) being taken for granted (Kars was only annexed in 1878, which means it should be shown as a Russian addition as well).
