Which was the greatest empire in history, the German Empire, the Roman Empire, or the British Empire?

None of the above. Remember Genghis Khan? The largest empire in Terran history was the Mongol Empire (1206 to 1687) stretching from China to Hungary.Mongolia had an impact on the Hungarian and Finnish languages as well as the creation of the state of Russia, which they unified.It was known as the Yuan Dynasty in China. The Mongols were strong supporters of trade along the Silk RoadS — yes there were multiple trade routes. The decline of the Mongolian Empire led to the disruption of the Silk Trade Routes (not maintained or protected from brigands) and ultimately to the European search for a sea route to Asia and the discovery of the Americas. Pretty significant to world history.Regards Terra Encounters
