The Ottoman Empire Still Existed The Last Time The Chicago Cubs Won The World Series

The Ottoman Empire, at the height of its power (16th and 17th Century), controlled huge swaths of South Eastern Europe, Asia, and North Africa.

Although the empire was in continuous decline throughout the 18th and 19th century, the monarchy wasn’t officially overthrown until November 1st 1922, after the Turkish National Movement won the Turkish War of Independence, and established a parliamentary state.

The Chicago Cubs last won the World Series in 1908.  They hold the record for the longest World Series Drought in baseball history.
