If an ancient or old Empire can rise out of the ashes and you get to live in it without being a slave or having to die. Which empire would you want to see to conquer the world?

I'm not talking about present time countries like European nations, Russia, China and etc. Ancient to old Dynasties Empire before the Colonial Age where British takes over NA. Like the Mongol Empire, Alexanders Empire, Qin Empire or Joan of Arc Era.

If your suggesting a certain nation like British empire, give a certain Era or Date.

For me I wonder what would have happened if the Qin Empire takes over the World. I heard their crossbows can pierce roman legions armour.

Isn't Scotland part of the Celtic empire in the past? How far is the Scot empire your suggesting? Hundred Year War Era between French and British?

An ancient Egyptian world Empire would be pretty cool...

But... I think I would have to say Greece, because... They had good mathematicians...

Least enjoyable I think would be one of the ancient south american empires... They were pretty brutal.

Mali. Non-lethal assaults with bulletless guns to peacefully conquer the world.

The tiny empire within the British empire trying to leave it. They fought the English with sticks, stones and naked and still won some glorious battles.

Nothing ancient here but seeing Guevara's revival of Gran Colombia might have done it for me.

Native American Culture.

Pollution would be gone within years
and people would be able to tune back in to nature the way we are supposed to.

I agree. I'd probably join the Muscogee/"Creek" side of my family & their civilization. Though not all Native American states were as peaceful as the stereotypes portray. Some Cherokees had large plantations with slaves just like the European colonies did. (For the record, some Muscogee & Cherokee had a feud so the info I just repeated may be biased LOL.)

If not them, I'd probably join the Mayans. They were amazing, had nice technology, and were very sanitary.

The Mayans didn't mind tearing people's hearts out when they needed a bit of rain either...

LOL True. I think they had human sacrifice rituals too. Though to be fair, a lot of their exploits were exaggerated by the Conquistadors to justify their actions. I've heard one account that some of the sacrificed actually wanted to be sacrificed, like they believed they were giving their lives for a higher purpose. I think I'd be absent those days.

Haha.
Take a rain check, yeah



Actually everything you said was spot on.
Very exaggerated by the Spaniards and yes most of not all were willing to give it all up for the community.
So I hear anyways.

I guess we'll never truly know.
I'm leaning towards what you said though.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want to look too hard to find out though lol. Some times, the truth is even worse than the rumors. I'd rather be on a beach or out "fishing" during those days, just in case. Other than that, I think I'd like things there. Your choice was pretty good too.
