Visualization of empires declining over time

The largest maritime empires of the 19th and 20th centuries. Visually, they grow and grow and -inevitably- explode.

Very interesting! I’d dispute some of his dates, though. Why does Canada get its “independence” in 1931 (with the statute of Westminster, I presume), but Ireland gets its independence in 1916? Just because they declared it doesn’t make it so. Even the Anglo-Irish treaty of 1922 produced a dominion of the British Empire, legally parallel to Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia (and why does that last country get its independence in the 1940s?).

My OCD is in a tizzy…
