I'm not sure about saying Alsace is a disputed region: maybe change it to historically disputed? I feel like it's a bit too soon to trigger WWIII

Excellent! I love it. The map is very original and beautiful, and the informations interesting. I'm personally French, so I got all of them, although Agincourt was very difficult for me.

Nominated, because it deserves a lot more!

P.S.: Most of the answers are accepted in French, so maybe accept Léonard de Vinci? But it's just a detail, it's excellent!

Hey Baptiste, I'm French too :)

Merci pour les compliments, ça fait plaisir après avoir passé pas mal de temps à faire les quiz.

Pour les réponses en français, il me semble que De Vinci fonctionne. J'utilise surtout les types-in automatiques de Jetpunk, qui du coup traduit surtout dans la langue d'origine. Ici l'italien de par la provenance de celui-ci :) Le problème, c'est si je commence à tout traduire, ça va à la limite passer pour la France, mais ça risque de devenir bien plus compliqué pour l'Allemagne ou la Russie !

Ah, fantastique! C'est ce qu'il m'avait semblé en consultant votre carte de profil et vos quelques quiz, dont certains en français. Très heureux de découvrir encore un JetPunker francophone très talentueux! Plus qu'à proposer vos superbes quiz sur la section francophone, maintenant. ;-)

Hey/Salut !

Great quiz, with a very rich map.

Only suggestion: the mountains drawing seems a bit weird to me... but that's purely subective ;)

Anyway: Congrat for this awesome map. Nominated for sure!
