Actual and Potential Belgian Empire - 2

You should click on the map to see the full size picture -not all changes are clearly visable as it is. This may be a 'work in progress' but it is fun for me to do that. King Leopold I made 50 efforts at colonization I heard today. To update from the last map, what I now have marked now includes also Sarawak, the New Hebrides and the Fiji Islands which were all also considered for possibilities as Belgian colonies.

Also I seem to recall hearing long ago about looking into a colony in India but I have not found anything about that. If anyone else has heard of this or where in India they was looking I would be interested to know!
