Basically what this game is, is that you will be presented with a country, and we take turns to trace this country back to its predecessor, because all countries were formed some way. If the country does not have a predecessor, we have two choices - we either go back to a historical version of the country, or to the country it broke off from from (example: Mongolia can trace back to Republic of China, or it can be traced back to the Mongol Empire - preferably Yuan).

Some countries have more than one predecessor, in this case, we have a choice, you can pick either one of them. By the time we reach their original tribes, it ends.

A good example of this game is:

Russian Federation
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
Russian Empire
Russian Tsardom
Grand Duchy of Muscovy
Golden Horde | Kievan Rus'
Mongol Empire | Slavic Tribes / Vikings (Kievan Rus' foundation is disputed)
Mongol Tribes | END / Swedes & Norsemen & Danes
END | END / Germanic Tribes

A little complicated, but let's give it a try.

Juq how exactly did the Weimar Republic contribute to the formation of Russia? Also, you cannot drag countries that the specified country is occupying into the mix. Vassals do not count unless they play a significant role into how the country was formed. Also "China Empire"? I know you got bored, but you can do better than that.

Belgium
Netherlands
Holy Roman Empire
Germany (Franks)
East Francia
Frankish Empire
Frankish Kingdoms: Austrasia | Neustria | Orleans | Paris | Aquitaine
Frankish Tribes

Next person try Iran (keep this a theme, where people are suggesting countries for the next person).

Don't even know your own, comparitively easy history. Weimar Republic had Kaliningrad/Ostpreußsen.

Also, Iran will be a nightmare.

The Kaliningrad Oblast originally belonged to Nazi Germany & the Wiemar Republic, but after WW2 it became part of the Soviet Union and is now a part of Russia
Here it is on a map:

I'm sorry for not including this, but territory taken from wars does not count. Territory that your country is occupying does not count, but only direct predecessors.

Spain:
*=Branch Continues

Spain*
Castile*|Aragon|Navarre
Leon/Asturias*|Kingdom of Castile|
Visigoths and Ethnic Mix*
Goths

I included Castile twice because The Kingdom of Castile was small then it united with Leon to form Leon and Castile or just Castile

**Edit** there are actually multiple branches of Spain's history. I chose Castille branch.


Try England

No they're not... That would be ridiculous to say. If you did Turkey it would freaking span the entire world if you did that. What I mean is when governments evolve, countries declare independence, previous states of the same ethnicity existed before.
