1260: height of the Mongol Empire
Hello people, I have a doubt here. Shouldn't the British possessions (Bengal at least) by painted either like Rupert's Land or in some light green to show that it was nominally Mogol? I mean, I was reading about the evolution of the BEIC for my TL and I found this in Wikipedia about the Treaty of Allahabad: "Based on the terms of the agreement, Alam granted the East India Company Diwani rights, or the right to collect taxes on behalf of the Emperor from the eastern province of Bengal-Bihar-Orissa. " Maybe the same should be applied to later maps with the Concessions in China.
I thought it deserves some debate.
Khiva-one of Ollie Bye’s maps. I’ll admit I’m not 100% sure about it myself since I know Khiva lost control of the Turkmens at some point, but I don’t know when exactly that happened.Khiva with all of Turkmenistan, the Mongolian-Manchurian border, the three countries in the present-day Central African Republic, the tiny purple country next to Guatemala, and the little nations in northern South Africa.
Tried to work with what you made, the internal borders of the aimags seem to not have changed through 19th-20th century Qing.I may have screwed up drawing the border, I largely had to eyeball it.
Is that border for Virginia accurate for the era? Even if it was, shouldn't the proclamation line still be marked?
If I understood correctly, the treaty of Fort Stanwix with the Iroquois and the treaty of Hard Labour with the Cherokee in 1768 opened much of West Virginia and Pennsylvania to the colonies, and in 1770 the treaty of Lochaber (again with the Cherokee) expanded the English boundary from the mouth of the Kanawha River to what is now Kingsport in Tennessee in a straight line. That last treaty was expanded later roughly along the Kentucky river, but I think that this last revision was unofficial. And reading again about those treaties, I should separate the Labrador region from the "Indian territory" as it was part of the Colony of Newfoundland back then. And I should revision the borders of New York.Is that border for Virginia accurate for the era? Even if it was, shouldn't the proclamation line still be marked?
Also, any chance that you (or someone else) could include a few more HRE members at some point?
Your Russo-Swedish border in Finland is wrong. You are literally using *modern* borders of Finland's provinces.View attachment 563388
Coast of Labrador added to Newfoundland Colony and I checked the Pennsylvania, New York, and Iroquois borders according to the treaty of Fort Stanwix. I changed the color of the Indian reserve as a puppet/vassal of the British
PD: Perhaps, as we post the maps here, we could try to justify it so we can make a list of maps (or at least areas) that have been contrasted so we can focus on areas and eras that aren't done...
