This is an annotated version of the time lapse map of Europe. It's slower, more zoomed in on the Continent, showing years and some important events.

11 Min.long but I learned more in that time than all of prior years!

Where is the time line and key to the colors? I am not seeing anything but a map changing colors which means nothing without a key? Anyone, help please, would love to see a key. Thanks!

There are FReepers who would love different perspectives on history and hearing about things we have never heard before.

You can bet some FReepers might try to check it out too.

It puts the lie to any thought of stability in Europe. The same would apply to the rest of the world.

Yeah, the highlights for me were seeing the Moors get pushed out of Spain, Napoleon’s sprint into Russia, WWI, WWII and Czechoslovakia’s brief flash of freedom in 1968.

Awesome.

I noticed the Cz flash too. Pretty cool.

As a Mick, it brought a tear to see what happened to Ireland over the centuries, though.

The year is at the upper left corner (kind of hard to see). I wanted to see a color key, too, but I think you can still get a lot out of it if you just accept that each color change is a different ruler, so you can see one territory/kingdom/etc. encroach on the others around it. I was watching the UK in particular and found it interesting how Ireland was Irish green then slowly became English tan, then back to green, then back to tan, etc.

Watch the area of Poland and Lithuania, many people will be surprised when they suddenly spread southward, with Lithuania spreading eastward, and stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

For all of the complaining about the post-1945 borders, the fact is, modern Poland’s borders are pretty much the same as in Piast Poland, back in 966.

How many different tiny countries did the Holy Roman Empire collapse into anyway? Looked like many dozens.

Speaking of Polish History, this was a cool video they produced for the 2010 Expo in Shanghai, condensing 1000 years of Polish History into 8 minutes.

This is just a guess, but I bet most people were surprised by the prominence of Lithuania and subsequently Poland/Lithuania over a long period of time.

In fact, if it had not been for those brave settlers on what was then the eastern frontier of Europe proper, the Mongol Golden Horde would have ridden through the Fulda Gap into central Europe.

A Pole, Henry Sienkiwizc (sp?)wrote a wonderful historical novel called “With Fire and Sword” about the battle between the Horde and the Europeans way back. I read it as a boy and have never forgotten it.

I was. I had always thought of Lithuania as a small country. I wish that the "annotation" were larger. I can barely read it. By the time I get my eyes focused on those tiny words at the bottom of the page, the map has already changed.

That video isn't available anymore. I watched it last night and wanted to watch it again. I ran across this link when I was watching yours: A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 - 3 Times Faster.

There is a longer version that runs 14 minutes with sound.

The HRE was ridiculously diverse, lots of little fiefdoms where everyone was related, and ethnically different from the next group over, due to millennia of continual invasion. Neighboring states would join due to arranged dynastic marriages, then someone would die (such as the bride, in childbirth, or the groom, in battle) and the whole arrangement would fall apart.

The last Wholly Roman Emperor was probably in the Flavian dynasty. :’)

1025 A.D because of disagreements with a Latin Church, the Eastern church has removed itself from it, that is first serious war, for it has weaken Christendom. Far east, Mongols are raging in far east and moving close to not only Eastern Eruope as well Muslims integrated empire, before Ottoman Empire comes to fold, which is in ancient time of tribe of Oghuz, by XIII century issues do arise between Polonia as well west Germanic tribes. In fatal mistake, Mazowiecki decided to bring a Templers of Holy Cross (or called in Polonia Krzyzacy) who will fight insurgence of Brandenburg tribes on western borders of Polonia, with it history was made, While this is going on, Litwa King invades vast part of Eastern part of Europe today Bialrous, Ukraine, same time hordes of Mongols are creating biggest empire world have seen. to be continue...........
