@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!

@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

@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.

What about Istanbul? It was a major city.

@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...

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.
