Didn't do so well but it's a beautiful quiz. I now feel the need to find more about these things.

If I may nitpick a bit:

-Normandy wasn't ceded, since the Dukes of Normandy were still vassals of the kings of France

-Avignon housed several legitimate popes as well before the schism

Other than that, great quiz!
