All Modern-Day Countries Ever Controlled by Belgium
With the help of a map, can you guess all modern day countries that were at one point under Belgian rule in 1790 (the Brabant Revolution/foundation of the United Belgian States) and from 1830 (foundation of the Kingdom of Belgium) up to now?
Most European territories: The first iteration of a (short-lived) Belgian state occured in 1790, when the Brabant Revolution ousted the Austrians until the end of the year. This explains the strange enclaves.
China: Concession in Tianjin.
Guatemala: Santo Tomas de Castilla was the first attempt at a Belgian colony. It existed from 1843 to 1854.
Italy: Isola Comacina was granted to Belgium in homage to the king in 1919. This territory was returned to Italy the following year.
Central African Republic: The sultanates of Zemio and Rafai were under Belgian protectorate just before the territory was seized by France.
Uganda/South Sudan: The Lado Enclave. Ceded to the UK in 1910.
Also HOW did more people get DRC and Germany than Belgium, which is literally written in the quiz's title.
