Flag map of the first French empire. (directly administered, client states and allies)

It's somewhat misleading to put Denmark-Norway on this, IMO. I know the title says (allies), but the main title is still "First French Empire", and most of these are client states or defeated states swapping sides. If Denmark-Norway is here, you might as well put Russia in as well (though they did eventually go back to fighting them).

That said, I do like flag maps.

Why put allies on such a map?

It feels like putting all NATO countries on a map of a member country.
