@simbha: Correct!
For example: Dallas/Fort Worth could be considered one "metropolitan area" since they`ve grown to become one city, essentially.
But it`s still not as big as Mexico City! :-)

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it`s Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That`s nobody`s business but the Turks

So take me back to Constantinople
No, you can`t go back to Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That`s nobody`s business but the Turks

@ieatbunnies: This is a chart of the largest metropolitan areas (or, possibly, urban agglomerations), not cities proper. Arbitrary political boundaries matter little; it`s the natural continuity of people that matters and this is charting that.

Not accurate. Currently Tokyo is the 14th largest city in the world/east. China has 4 cities more populated, and Shanghai is 2x as populated as Tokyo.

@Draculya: The message is that great cities come and go.

Neat info. I`m not sure of its accuracy, though. I`m familiar with Cordoba (Cardoba), which it lists as 200k in 1000 CE. The best estimates are between 350k and 1 million, with the mode around 500k.

This makes me question the other figures from antiquity.
