Which country or region has been part of the most empires?

Here is one answer (to a slightly different question) from Reddit:

Asia Minor/Anatolia might be the region which have seen most empires. For example: Akkadians, Hittites, Persians, Alexander’s Empire, Seleucids, Roman Empire, Parthians, Byzantine Empire, Sassanids, Arabians, Seljuks, Mongols and Ottomans.

I think first of Romania.  They have been part of the Roman empire, Kingdom of Hungary, the Ottoman empire, various Habsburg monarchies and empires, the Third Reich empire, the Soviet bloc, and the European Union.

Who else might be a contender for this designation?
