    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.

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

    @CodeJockey: lolz! Some of them go out, apparently the `night life` is amazing in Tokyo...

    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.

    @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.

    @onoffonoffon

    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

    @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! :-)
