    Support the British empire as it was the closest to make the whole world a country all united no wars and everyone would be equal and Britain would stop the slave trade as they did even in uk Gandhi lived there as a student as an equal as he only hated the uk when a general when the and killed people without order in India the British empire would be the world and there would be no Britain but rather England,Scotland extra.

    The Spanish empire was the first where the sun was never set, sorry brits, and that was around 200 years before, so you did nothing new :). Infografics Show, why don't you just compare the Spanish empire whilst the Iberian union versus the British Empire? That'd be quite similar, the difference is that Spanish conquered everything fighting fiercely while Britain divided Africa with France without actually colonising anything from scratch.

    The Africans freely engaged in selling vanquished enemies (other Africans) to the Arabs and the British. To say slavery, and by a further degree racism is a white concept is frankly, beyond the pale. Read your history books.

    Rome built Britain then Britain made the world. Ironic.

  • The Australian Historian

    The British have a bigger advantage because unlike the romans the British attacked 90% of world don’t forget they conquered most of Africa, defeated the USA and survived two Russian winters during the Crimean war and they had the third biggest army in 1790. They also conquered Italy,Germany and France which were military power houses for their time.

    Why do the British try to claim and lie that they "banned slavery" when it was them the British and Portuguese who enslaved the most Africans in the transatlantic slave trade and the most people in the history of the world along with other Europeans. You do not deserve credit for stopping to do something evil after profiting and doing it for hundreds of years and then you decide to stop it and take and try to claim credit for "stopping" it just because it didn't profit you anymore. For example, many states in USA had banned slavery completely before the British and the USA had banned the slave trade before the British but slavery went on for about 80 years in 10% of the country, the south, while it was banned in most of the country and then in 1865. While in the British Empire slavery went on for over 300 years in the whole empire and the British profited and became rich because of it and killed/tortured millions of africans.

  • vordman

    The Roman Empire lasted longer because it was in the ancient world where limited technology meant things moved more slowly. The British Empire burnt out relatively quickly, but look at the legacy it left. The Brits built the modern world, no doubt about it. And English speaking nations continue to be at the forefront of discovery and innovation.

    The Roman Empire was truly one of a kind during its peak - there was no real contender. The british empire, on the other hand, was never really that far ahead of its rivals + didn't last as nearly as long as the Roman Empire did. You cant compare the two, basically.
