The Byzantine Empire is still around as late as the 15th Century.<BR/><BR/>3. Treaty of Tordesillas, 1494. -- TRUE.<BR/><BR/>4. Peace of Westphalia, 1648. -- TRUE<BR/><BR/>5. Treaty of Paris, 1783. -- TRUE<BR/><BR/>6. Treaty of Madrid, 1817. -- NO. The Monroe Doctrine was just an idea expressed in one of Monroe's State of the Union speeches. It's an important concept, but has no formal expression.<BR/><BR/>7. Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, 1848. -- ABSOLUTLY<BR/><BR/>8. First Geneva Convention, 1864. -- YEP<BR/><BR/>9. Treaty of Bonn, 1887. -- NO. The Victorious GERMANS were the ones doing the humiliating after the Franco-Prussian War. This inspires the French to humiliate the Germans in revenge after World War I.
