Countryballs history of Europe: 1500-2022

Animation of the major events between European countries from 1500 until 2022. The text frame on the left shows important events, and the text frame in the top-right shows general trends of the era. This video is a summary of the events. I could not fit every important that occured in this video. The size of the countryball corresponds to the country’s relative size, economic power, military power, population, and influence in European politics. However, the main goal of the video is not to visualize the relative power of the European states, but it is to provide a concise overview of the events and wars that occurred and the International relations between the states. The video was made using Adobe After Effects and with the help of lots of historical internet sources.
