Old, wildly inaccurate, maps are always funny to look at.
I've already seen some of these map style posted. Where are they from?
Contributing with some of my map folder (though it's mostly geography, not history), by the way.
This one related to the first one I posted
I gotta go to sleep so this is the last one. A cute one.
Oh, and also have a bonus one. Not exactly history but I'm sure you guys are gonna like it.
I wonder which country produced this map.
Actual historical map.
I love this map because it makes the world looks like some RPG scenario.
Looks like I only have 15 actual maps, the rest are just expansion of organizations like McD's and Wal Mart.
Here's a map of future history, though.
>Western Han Empire
Where's the Eastern Han Empire?
Why is the entire island chain labeled Japan when whatever that political entity is is only on three islands?
Where is Ryukyu?
Why do they have a defined border?
Are they supposed to be an empire or what?
Why are the Mongols in Sibera and not in Mongolia? I mean, look at that map. They're north of Lake Baikal, which is way beyond Outer Mongolia.
some old maps from NG
First map of America made by an American, my ancestor Abel Buell
>Where's the Eastern Han Empire?
That's not how chinese dynasties work. They're called eastern or western (or southern-northern) depending on the placement of the capital.
Probably refers to actual japanese people as opposed to ainu. I don't know enough japanese history to confirm.
We more or less know the extension of the moche kingdoms/chiefdoms. I've seen this guy doing the same before, though he should have clarified by writing "moche kingdoms".
Of fucking course they're not an empire.
Probably speculation, we can only talk about proto-mongols and proto-turks at this point of history. Anyways the placement of mongols falls pretty much in modern buryatia (russia) inhabitated by mongolic speking peoples. Mongolia wasn't just independent and chinese mongolia.
provinces of the united kingdom of spain
Austronesian, ie Polynesians, Micronesians, Malay, Malagasy (Madagascar), and Filipinos came from Taiwan.
It sucks native Taiwanese/Formoans only make up 1% of the island now.
I can post some painted maps of Italy from the Vatican.
Sorry about crappy iphone quality
Last one, and probably the only one with decent quality, again sorry for the horribly blurry pics, but I hope you can at least make some of it out.
Not shilling for /pol/, but the myths about 'jews poisoning wells' apparently came from around that time.
Furthermore, Poland was the ashkenazi homeland at around that time.
Coincidence? Maybe. But I feel like legends always have at least some true substance to them, it's always been that way.
Malays are a race really, consisting of several empires that existed in what is now Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Indonesia and maybe even a bit of the Philippines. The largest empire there, may have been the Majapahit. Malays were mostly separated into city states that fought each other for control of trade routes. Owning lots of land here wasn't really a great thing back then as it was mostly jungle and jungles are fuck hard to clear and turn into a city unlike a forest. What you really wanted to control to show your power and create wealth were the trade routes. It was located between China and India and just about all trade had to pass through Malay waters, so there was plenty of money to be made then.
>a relevant independent nation that's not a city
They don't. Poland was more effective at closing it's borders. The map is also misleading. Milan lost around 15% of their pop while Poland lost around 25%. Thanks to the Christian King Casimir who wisely controlled trade routes and was able to easily quarantine them once the illness began to spread.
Jews poisoning wells is one of those ad hoc ergo propter hocs (read: superstitions) from that time that survived much easier than say the horseshit about black cats and ladders and broken mirrors. I guess it's because of all the mental illness people suffer these days.
>literally the newest board of 4chan
>making it the oldest nation
for what purpose?
because they have a long and rich history, since the focus of /his/ is history it only makes sense.
>France was established in 1792AD
Why would you define france from the revolution and not bulgaria or russia?
The Bulgars were not Bulgarians in the same way the Franks were not french, the Rus were not Russian, and the Scotti were not Scots.
