Egypt once controlled EGYPT? What is my life? Great quiz, most people think that the Egyptian Empire was just Egypt. The Egyptian Empire to its greatest extent was remarkable, courtesy of great pharaohs like Ramses II. But Hapshepsut was better. Sorry there was some big debate between the best pharaoh.

Anyways, random unrelated topics aside, this is a really nice quiz!

Please add Spain because of Moroccan territories, or at the very least add it in gray like for Palestine.

should maybe possibly include delhi sultante? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamluk_dynasty_(Delhi)

The Mamluk dynasty of Delhi is unrelated to the Egyptian Mamluk Sultanate. The term "Mamluk" is usually defined as non-Arab and ethnically diverse freed slaves who find themselves in high military ranks.

Nice quiz! However, I noticed there was a bit of missing territory in the south-east of Syria, which was controlled by the UAR between 1958 and 1961. Was this not included because it wasn't considered 'Egyptian' enough?
