Supplementary notes

* Including the United Kingdom, which has been counted as one country. This data does not include British overseas territories, or current overseas territories of other nations.

There are some brief occupations and failed colonies that have not been included in this data, for example, the invasions of the River Plate (Argentina and Uruguay) in 1806-7, and the annexation of Corsica (France) in 1814, as Britain did not establish control of the areas. Similarly, there were some regions where Britain's colonies would overlap with modern countries, however these have not been included. For example, on the Arabian Peninsula parts of Britain's Yemeni or Omani territories would technically be in modern day Saudi Arabia, however Saudi Arabia has not been included in this data.
In contrast, Britain's control of New Caledonia (Panama (not South Pacific)) in 1698, and of Minorca (Spain) in the 18th century, have been included as they were established colonies that enabled trade and/or influence in their respective regions. Britain's administrations of Germany and Austria in the 1940s have also been included due to the political influence they afforded Britain.
