The glorious Roman empire and when after that Europe got in the dark age the Renaissance comes up with Italy as leader.

I am 1/2 Italian - CityGuru

3 China China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1. 388 billion . It was established in 1949. Its capital is Beijing. The other major cities are Hong Kong and Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only more.

First of all, I hate recent communist china, because I'm a burmese. But I can't argue with the truth that it has one of the greatest history in the world. Start with the Xia dynasty and end with Qing, they have developed so many new cultures along the way, including great inventions. But right after Ming dynasty, there greatness was slowly decaying, up to this day. I think Japanese invasion in WWII is involved in destroying their traction of development. Also western countries were developing so fast after the age of enlightenment, leaving china behind. Truth is I really don't like Chinese people, but their history is very interesting to study.

Totally underrated history. From 5000 years ago till now, China has survived and will continue its history with the similar culture.

From dynasties to revolution to innovation...This country's history has never been told before!

Cause iam asian ; )

4 United States of America United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

America could of had Canada in the revolution and it could of had Mexico in the Mexican American war but they didn't take it. look it up yourself. It also broke away from one of the greatest empires ever.

The United States of America never collapsed and never had a king, emperor, or dictator.

U.s should be first

Most interesting I would say

5 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. more.

Russian imperial history is the most fascinating one so far, with changes in power and conflicts rivaling those of George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels.

6 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

I think its India because of the struggles we had to do against British. How a golden birds became devastated in fires of infinity. So its India. History is the proof.

It has made many struggle, satyagraha, martyrs, for there nations to get freedom and to get reed of british emperor

From golden bird to second world nation... But maybe be once again golden bird, I hope - zuni

7 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Pharaohs and revolution and getting invaded and kicking them Egyptians and Egypt are baosses

Egypt should be number 2, after Hellas (Hellenic republic).

8 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

Great History for sure, and of course the Lumieres, the Revolution, great recent Empire.

Vercingetorix, Charlemagne, Francis I of France, Henry IV of France, Louis XIV, Louis XVI (without head Lol..), Napoleon, De Gaulle, French Revolution, the crusades, Les Lumieres, Human Rights, Moliere, Diderot, Aragon, Victor Hugo, Proust, Car invention, Cinema invention...

9 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

I think it's Germany because Germany has history dating back to the roman empire where it stand against the invaders. Also, Germany's story really began with Otto Von Bismarck one of the best strategists in history, he tricked France into declaring war on Prussia and then afterwards occupy Paris, things that even the british had trouble to do! He did that in 6 months!

The best for applying the terror, for that reason European Union has been founded, to keep calm Germany.

10 Turkey Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

Very effecting culture.

The history there is Greek history except for Kurdistan

16000 years of history and the best warriors

Reason of The Great Wall

Divided down the middle of Roman Empire

Almost all crusades were against The Turks and They defeated every time

Used to be defender of Islam (I think If today Islam is one of the popular religions it's because of The Turks

First Military Band - Mehter

Ottoman Empire was Third Roman Empire and It was one of the greatest empires.(Fun Fact:The first black pilot ( Ahmet Ali Celik/Nigerian) was citizen of The Ottoman Empire)

Ataturk kicked in the guts Imperialism and Imperialist countries that He have started a fire for these countries which live in under of

Very very old and beautiful country. It used to be the biggest empire in the world. Sadly, it is now a dump with unfair justice and forced religion :( I am Persian by the way

Oldest country in world with 7000 years history

Iran is one of the oldest countries in the world. You could go to Louvre Museum in Paris and see the number of Iranian objects and their dates. The Iranians are very hospitable and warm.

War, war every time.

Actually, Lithuania and Mongolia was the only countries which could have Moscow.

Poland, is one of the best history ever. They fighted against Ottomans, and with Soviets, to not only save their country, but also whole Europe. They fighted against Soviets and Germans in 1939, without any help. They defended Warsaw, Międzymorze, and every land, to the last drop of blood.

I’ve studied Mexican history and I love it! Specially the aztecs, Mayas

18 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

I think Ireland is in a good place because we have a very good Celtic culture that very few other nations have. But as an Irish person I have to admit that we didn't practice it a lot around the times we were under the control of Britain. Honestly the reason we are independent to day was probably the revival of our culture a hundred years ago. If it wasn't for Celtic revival are Irish language and heritage might have disappeared. Just saying if we lost are culture we would probably have British culture and still be part of the United Kingdom. GOD BLESS IRELAND

19 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Criminals and aboriginals turned gold miners, shearers, and criminals (bush Rangers) turned soldiers turned athletes and inventors, what's not to like.
