An Informative Animated Timelapse Mapping European Rulers From 400 BC Through Present Day

Mapmaker Cottereau has created a really informative animated timelapse that plots every European ruler throughout every era from 400 BC through present day. The animation is rather comprehensive and is set to the appropriately regal soundtrack of Music from the Batman Trilogy.

Early in January 2018, Cottereau created a similar map focusing on the changing borders and populations within Europe, also from 400 BC to the present day.
