"The Eastern Question" was a 19th century term referring to which of the colonial powers, as opposed to Russia who was also interested, would get the territories of the Ottoman Empire when it broke up. The "Question" was supposedly answered at the end of WWI, but today's containing conflicts in the lands of the former Ottoman Empire are a reminder that the question is still very much in play.
