The Largest Empires In History, Ranked By Total Land Area

Sure, you probably think about the Roman Empire all the time, but how does it stack up against the largest empires in the history of mankind, ranked by total land area in million square miles? SPOILER: Not very well at all, it didn’t even make the top 8! Pfft, some empire. But you go on thinking about that little shrinky-dink empire — you do you. Me? I’m going to focus my thoughts on an even bigger, better empire: the EMPIRE OF MY MIND. “What does that even mean?” No clue, lots of cobwebby castles in there though.
