It's a nice day out here and 10:10 Brooklyn, New York, and I'm wonering who is your favirote conqueror? I like Alexander the Great because he had an enourmous empire, Gengis Khan, because he alsmost succeeded in conquering all of Europe and Asia, Hitler (I hate him but do him the credit of being smart) because he built up an enourmous military and became dictator of Germany and was just a painter, and Julius Caesar because he was a smart man and expanded Rome's lands, oh and Saladin because he withstanded the Crusades and managed to hold his empire together, but I also dont like him for many reasons... Who is your favirote conqueror?

hitler, stalin, hannibal, genghis khan, etc., in my opinion every conquerer deserves respect in their own right.

well it may seem like they didn't do the right thing, i'm not going to agree that they did, but they may have thought at the time they were doing the right thing. after all, conquering nations/people isn't a game of morality.

Favourite conqueror ???
I don't think so. I don't have one because I can't see the point of warsof conquest. They are unnecessary and frankly evil.

They are evil but they also made history in this world.

If I had to pick one, my favorite conqueror would be Julius Caeser.
"Vendi, Vidi, Vici" ( I came, I saw, I conquered)

Kaiser Wilhelm II: Nearly gained victory after defeating Russia in WWI. Also, he has many royal family ties to monarchs such as Queen Victoria and I believe it was either his sister or cousin that was Tsarina of Russia. He declared war on his relatives nevertheless
.

Adolf Hitler: I don't support his justification behind the Holocaust but I give him credit for his political genius. He carefully timed his political actions so that he wouldn't face a two front war as did Wilhem II. However, Hitler arguably ruined the war for himself as well.

Publius Scipio Africanus: His ingenious strategy that conquered Carthago is known throughout all of the Roman Empire. Scipio's victory ultimately determined whether Rome or Carthage would be the dominant power.
