My name is Mike J Nagle. I have been creating political maps of the world related to the 1632/Ring of Fire series since December, 2016.
Some of the maps show the political situation at the Time of the Ring of Fire; that is, on May 25, 1631. These maps are historically accurate for the Original Timeline. Other maps show the situation at a later date in the New Timeline.
Each map is available at full-size resolution and half-size resolution.
These maps are all works in progress. While they are essentially finished, I am constantly making corrections and adding new information to them. If you have downloaded any of them more than a month ago, you may want to download them again, since they might have been changed since then.
I am still creating new maps. As each is completed, I will add it to this page.
I am sincerely grateful to 1632.org for allowing me to include my maps on their website.
