Dutch: Sint Maarten
When the British took over the Cape many of the Dutch settlers left the Cape Colony, establishing a series of independent Republics that were never part of the Dutch Empire. Johannesburg was founded in one of these Republics, the ZAR (South African Republic) and was never under Dutch control.
As to whether Johannesburg is a megacity is very much up for debate. The city proper doesn't have ten million people, but its metropolitan population exceeds ten million and for this reason many people consider it to be a megacity.
People just liked it better that way...
There’s already APEU history, you don’t need WHAP to be the same thing
Same deal for Hudson River/Bay.
I'd suggest changing the wording to something like 'first European to map'
