I agree , started in North America and was doing well when some spellings of tribes were not accepted (Ojibwa etc ) so I got frustrated and gave up .needs to accept different spellings of some tribes . also some large tribes seem to be missing. On a lighter note thank U for U .who knew U.

I may be wrong, but wasn't Rwanda formed by the unification of the Hutu and Tutsi tribes in the 1900's? How was it independent back then?
+4
Level 68
Sep 8, 2020
The Kingdom of Rwanda goes back all the way to potenially the 10th to 11th century. It became far more centralzed in the 1400s or 1500s with a stronger central King. The Kingdom was at its height in the 18 century.

The Rwanda is far old than the 1900s

+1
Level 73
Mar 14, 2021
Also the Hutu and Tutsi weren't always considered separate "tribes". Before the Belgians came in they were different social classes of the same society. These class identities were often inherited but it wasn't a requirement; people could move from one class to the other as they gained or lost wealth and property.

There is a theory/hypothesis/something that the Tutsi were initially migrants and brought cattle herding with them, but I don't know how accepted that is. Nevertheless, for a good while they were social classes rather than ethnicities.

Interesting, and it reminds me of playing Medieval: Total War games, which teach you a great deal about the old territories. Way too many groups to be beneficial, though. The modern nation states make more sense.

Why is "Prome" (apart from a state in the Far East) also a type-in for the last remnants of the Byzantine Empire? Not as if I minded, I'm just curious to know. However I rack my brains (and Google), I can only remember the Byzantine Empire as the Eastern Roman Empire, which might make it E-Rome, not Prome.

(It took me a couple of games to find out why exactly I found Byzantium done after finishing Asia...)

Level 48
Aug 27, 2021
The problem with updating for 1.30 and 1.31 is that those two updates add so many "countries" that could barely be considered countries historically, especially 1.31 which added a lot of native tribes. As such I likely will never update for 1.31 in order to keep with this quiz being about countries of the world in 1444, not EU4 countries. If I did it would be a separate quiz.

Not challenging the quiz but moreso the game, but a bit strange that Madja-as (c. 1200 - 1569), Sultanate of Bone (14th century–1905), and Wajoq (c. 1400–1957) weren't included. Shouldn't they be in this timeframe?
