Fantasy Europe Map - Medieval by GTD-Orion Fantasy Europe Map - Medieval by GTD-Orion
This map shows a fantasy version of Europe, in the medieval era ( which lasted for a few thousand years ).

During this long period of existence, despite many wars between the various nations, elves and dwarves, the borders of these countries barely change in the long term.

Do note, this is a fantasy map of Europe. This is entirely fictional and does not have any historic basis from our actual, real history of the world.

For example. Germany ( Germania ) is more west-centered because the various smaller germanic states want their own independence. Caucasian nations, Britanny, etc. don't actually exist in the way we know, and are inhabited by other people/nations.

The most technologically advanced are SPQR ( Senate and People of Rome ), Byzantium and Atlantean Empire. The most populous are Germania, Frankia ( France ), Osmania and Novgorod. The most economically advanced are Anglia, Denmark and Hungary. The rest of the large nations are more or less "balanced" in various ways.

Because it's not really that obvious, here are the names of the elven and dwarven countries:
*Elven- Dacryca, Loria, Aralia, Dipter, Carya, Myrtia, Salix.
*Dwarven- Gaaldur, Gneiss, Tachyl.

Made in GIMP. Paper texture found on Google.

Hi! I use your awesome map on my illustration,…

Awesome map! Just a little question: is the Roman Republic expansionist? Maybe they have some colonies in Northern Africa. Would love to see a map of the rest of the world!

Wait a second, what is the year?
GTD-Orion Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013
It's fictional ( as the name implies ), and the 'Medieval Stasis' trope somewhat applies to it. So the year can be anywhere between the 14th and, say, 34th centuries.
NathalieRoann Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2013   Writer
Well, as a patriot I have to say, you've forgotten to draw Bulgaria!
MaximusPalpatine Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013
I'm writing a story about a fantasy medieval Europe, and I came across this awesome map! I was wondering if I could use this for my story? It's the only one that I could find that would fit it, and I love the textures and font! I'll be checking your page daily for a response :D.
GTD-Orion Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013
I have sent you a note about it.

tibinthomas22 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
Thanks for your stock i have used it here [link]
GTD-Orion Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
This isn't a stock image.
tibinthomas22 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012
Oops, sorry about that. I am kind of new to DA, this is the first time I used resources from DA, so I thought it was a stock image. This was the only nice map I could find, that would fit my theme that is why I used it. Hope you don't mind me using this map.
GTD-Orion Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012
It's alright, since you notified and credited me for it. Would have been good to have been notified before though.
tibinthomas22 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012
I will surely remember to do that in the future.

I simply adore the style of this map, the way it looks not the way the countries look

Wow! Fantasy-Europe! I think that's a great idea.
ironsides11 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012
Excellent map, the fusion of the Ancient Period, Dark Ages, Middle Ages, and Early Modern period are fascinating!
NocturnalDarkness Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012
Awesomeness. Nice reference to Medieval Stasis in the top line. Delivered with a sneer, I trust. :p
Arminius1871 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012
I love that map and the names! I think the a-ending sounds always good^^
HeerSander Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012
So, the Low Countries are an Elven Kingdom? :)
GTD-Orion Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012
Yep. As well as multiple other territories.

Elves here used to be dominant, pretty much like the Celts were in real life. But then humans pretty much overran the territories, one way or the other.
bespais Featured By Owner May 21, 2011
love tha map. especially the colors you use and the idea to try to put the most conutry available was a great idea
Rarayn Featured By Owner May 21, 2011
Intriguing concept. I would have liked it better if the borders were a bit clearer; perhaps throw in a bit of colour as well, but it's still a cool map. Good work!
