I'm French, and I don't know all the name we give to these cities in English, so feel free to comment to add more precisions.

Thanks!

I find it strictly impossible there are only two European cities on the list, especially because Asian population didn't kick off until the 1800s.

Asian population was very important in some big cities before 1800's, although there weren't very important, so, usually, we prefer to only talk about the European cities, whose role was often very important in the Histoire. But the Asian cities existed, and were populous. You can check the version about 1700 (not by me): you will see that there are many asian cities too.

I'll add the source in the instructions.
