A pretty amazing time-lapse map of european political boundaries from about 1000-2005.

A live year counter would be killer, but you can sort of get hold of the major events by watching the relevant territories bloom across the map. The Mongol Invasion (0:20), for example is pretty dramatic. Or WWII (3:02).
