So, who was the best king in your opinion?
This. The British Empire was most definitely the greatest empire ever in terms of geographic, economic, and cultural influence. Ottoman Empire ranks high on the list, but don't forget that in OP's map an awful lot of that land area was practically uninhabited.
Definitely not the greatest empire in history. It was pretty interesting though. I don't agree with everything in this video, but this guy makes some good points in all of his stuff.
Venetian republic empire is the true master race.
Thats not the american empire m8...
Since no one's actually talking about it, I guess I'll get us started
I keep hearing that the Eastern part of the Roman Empire was so much richer and advanced compared to the rest...
But looking at this picture, France, Tunisia and England were the most prosperous areas in the Roman Empire. Is this true?
Maybe you shouldn't be posting here if you are functionally illiterate.
>The map clearly states CE.
>England has the highest amphitheaters in the Roman Empire outside of Italy, Tunisia and France.
Seems pretty prosperous to me.
Not quite large , but you are right about quality. Awesome architecture and style ,indeed
>not including the coolest of empires

>Are you serious? Those mosques all look like cheap copies of the Hagia Sophia, built more than a thousand years after the original.
Because they both have giant domes? They look nothing alike. Its probably time to stop posting and consider suicide.
it isnt about getting refuted its about being so damn hostile about it, cant we talk about historical things without being assholes
also not the guy he was talking to it just seemed interesting
Honestly wouldn't mind if the Austrians reinstated the Hapsburgs and took us back in, Hungary had its golden age with the Austrians.
Austria today is pretty based minus the Syrian colonies.
It's actually one of the shittiest empires in history. They did basically nothing noteworthy except taking control of a bunch of land. The Ottoman Empire was so backwards it didn't even have a printing press until the 19th century.
>sail up to some empty island because the turks wont let us pass in the mediterranean
>plant a flag on it
>shoot the spear wielding niggers living there a few times with the musket, they think were gods
>its an empire now
trade wise and culturally, big impact yeah. But its not the same.
>Heroically besiege and capture heavily defended city after city
>Fight the best armies of the time
List of superior empires
So if you ignore the vast majority of other empires the Ottomans are the best.
>because the Turks won't let us pass in the Mediterranean
Daily reminder you needed Western European powers to come bail your asses out when Russia was about to btfo you.
>Fight the best armies at the time
You could win against slavshits but the moment you reached a powerful foe in Vienna your shit quality showed.
