Constructive criticism is welcome. Subscribe to receive a notification when I release a new quiz.
The territory held by a named colony may not comprise the entire territory of the present-day state(s).
A portion of the named territory may still be a dependent territory and not part of a present-day sovereign state. Such portions are irrelevant to this quiz.
The end date shown for the colony is not necessarily the same date its territory became independent or part of a sovereign state.
