Top Ten Countries With the Best HistoryAbdRahmanSalah
The Top Ten
Greece is the birthplace of the entire world!
Everything starts and ends here.
Take a look back in history as regards arts, science, civilization and you can easily thinks and consider it (despite your origin) as one of the most important and influential nations in history of our planet.
They built the entire civilization! isn't it enough to be nation with best history?
Culturally speaking we owe a lot to Greece for revolutionizing the importance of science, art and civilization in general. Plus,Greece had 2 of the strongest empires: Alexander the Great's (Hellenic Empire) which was ridiculously large and could've been larger and the Byzantine Empire or Eastern Roman empire which spanned 1100 years.

? You may have the universe if I may have italy"-Verdi
Italy is the place of source in human civilization.
Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Catholic, Medieval, Renaissance, Rococo, Risorgimento. What else is there?
The glorious Roman empire and when after that Europe got in the dark age the Renaissance comes up with Italy as leader.3 Comments
" when looking China and it's history, there is so much you can talk about, from the Qin and Han dynasty to Ming and Qing dynasty. then jumping all the way to now with the People's Republic of China, I would consider it to be one of the greatest countries overall
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.
A glorious Celestial Empire lasting since the dawn of humanity... without comparison.
Totally underrated history. From 5000 years ago till now, China has survived and will continue its history with the similar culture.4 Comments
Although USA is my favorite country. The history is short compared to other countries.
Looks like a lot of patriotic idiotic Americans have voted on this list. Most European countries have been around 4 times longer than the USA has, does the US recent history make up for only 25% or less of history compared to many other countries? Absolutely not, this is a joke - HistoricalGuy
The U.S. is, by any estimate, the wealthiest, most powerful and most influential country in the history of the world. Buoyed by victories in World War I and World War II as the only major power not devastated, and especially after the collapse of the Soviet Union following the Cold War, the U.S. has emerged as the world’s sole superpower.
My house is older than America, it hardly has a history compared to Europe, Asia and North Africa. Should be no where near the top of this list. Hardly achieved anything globally as well until post world war 2 when every other major player was devastated.7 Comments
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.
Ivan the Terrible, Russian Empire, Seven Years War, Napoleonic Wars, World War I, Russian Revolution, Russian Civil War, Communism, World War II, Cold War, etc.
fun to learn even though Russia sucks right now. - TeamRocket747
Egypt has has a 4000 year old ancient history due to the time of the Pharaohs and Egypt also has a 1400 year long history since Islam showed up which is rarely talked about but Egypt was always a powerful empire under Islam as it single handedly beat most of western Europe under Saladin during the crusades and beat the mongols and basically put a stop to their endless expansion
Definitely - ElSherlock
This is bullcrap. Egypt has hands down best history and basically everything is still there. The US and Russia history is nothing compared to Egypt. All Italy has is Rome, Greece has good history, but Egypt has better. Talking history, Egypt makes France look irrelevat.
Pharaohs and revolution and getting invaded and kicking them Egyptians and Egypt are baosses1 Comment
France should be higher on the list
History of france started around 600 ad, and even before the history is so rich with a lot of creative inventions and ideas. Its for sure one of the richest history.
Great History for sure, and of course the Lumieres, the Revolution, great recent Empire.
Best country ever. Vive l'Empereur2 Comments
People say greece is the birthplace of everything(including history), well they definitely don't know history. India is one of the oldest civilisation if not the oldest.
India is first in this thing...

India is best in culture and invention22 Comments
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.
Holy Roman Empire, Napoleonic invasion, Prussia, Reunification, German Empire, World War I, German Revolutions, Weimar Republic, Nazi Germany, World War II, Allied Occupation, East Germany and West Germany, Berlin Wall, etc. - TeamRocket747
Very effecting culture.
The history there is Greek history except for Kurdistan
16000 years of history and the best warriors8 Comments
Wow! The fact that America is above us on this list is crazy. When it comes to history, they are practically brand new. The UK is above most Countries by far, in terms of history. Only Greece, Egypt, and possibly France can rival us. Anyone else is way off. We had the biggest empire this world has ever known. We fought, and have the blood of the Vikings, Romans, Saxons, French, etc. Without us declaring war on Germany in WW2 the world would be a different place. English is one of the, or the top language learnt and spoken. We have 2000 years of history. We practically made America. If it wasn't for the french coming to their aid in the revolutionary war, they would be speaking proper English. Not broken English. And before anyone starts moaning. We would've never surrendered against the Germans in WW2.
Henry viii is older then USA history and better then
No way is the USA above the UK...
Created the modern world in almost every sense from the creation and spread of parliamentary democracy and the modern worlds global language, to the standard laws on property and capitalist economy.10 Comments
Extremely productive, ingenious, and culturally rich nation, with a long history of art, invention, and empire.
Poland created strong and deep culture that was able to withstand countless invasions, persecutions, and total distractions. That explains why Poland did not exist on the map for 123 years but was able to rise from the ashes like Phoenix.
Poland also created culture that was able to bring together different states into the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth that was the biggest country in Europe for more than two centuries.
Polish culture values freedom and for this reason, Poland was the first country in Europe to adopt a democratic constitution, the first country to stop Ottoman invasion and Bolshevik revolution, the first country to fight Germans in 1939, and the first country to free itself from communism in 1989
The Polish Hussars are the greatest cavalry force in history, they were truly invincible. It also once was the biggest country in all of europe with Lithuania.
Polish people have gone through a lot, after the Russian/Soviet Communists attacking Poland, and also in WWII the Germans and Hitler slaying them, it's been a hard time for the Polish, but still they've managed to stand up and be strong. By the way this is coming from a Turk.
War, war every time.8 Comments
Persia shares almost the same history as Greece. It should at lest have the second best history in this list.
Iran should be number one, makes all the rest look pathetic
13th? Are you sick
What Canada, Denmark and Poland have better history than Persia? Now this is just silly.9 Comments
Once the mightiest empire of the world, they discovered half the known world. Pioneers of the Golden Age. One of the richest histories Earth has ever seen. Proud military history. August 1385. Aljubarrota Battle. 7000 portuguese vs 30000 Spanish. Guess who won...
Discovered more than half of the known world.
Once the world's greatest empire!
Pioneers of the Golden Age!1 Comment
Biggest empire ever!
Brought western civilization to a big part of the world
Spain an the uk should both be on the top 5. ¿How can the us be the third with a history less than 300 years old?1 Comment
Its amazing mate so much rich storys about hugo and his book chest to the rival re with spain its amazing!
It should be number one. The country had many empires(at least 10 empire) to witch any country would be lucky to even have one. They became the rulers of the middle east for a good 2000 years and had culture and technologie to back them up in every aspect of their being. They were conquering civilisations while the rest of the world were still nomads. Lets not even mention Cyrus The Great and his foundation of humain rights.
Should be number 1.
Should be number one.
Silly ranking.Sorry but this ranking is based on politics2 Comments
Criminals and aboriginals turned gold miners, shearers, and criminals (bush Rangers) turned soldiers turned athletes and inventors, what's not to like.
Why in 21th?
I have no idea why isn't Mongolia number 1
The Mongol Empire was the largest empire in the world. - aerochamber
Mongolian history begins from 800,000 years ago1 Comment
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
Everyone is complaining about USA having a short history, yet, people are saying that Canada has the best history yet Canada is younger than the USA!
History is short like the USA
I wish I was a canadian.
Canada is the best!

Land of terrorist
Pakistan di ma di chuddi
History of Pakistan can never be compared to anyone💚
More like Indian history cause Pakistan was always a part of India until the 20th century. - Bruno2202
It is Just a shame... Maybe china and greece have deeper history, but usa and canada definitely do not
Philippines deserves higher in this list.
It may not have as many inventions as Greece, or it may have not acquired as many achievements as the other famous countries had, but what makes this Country's History the best is how the country was put through so much struggle, and how our heroes fought for freedom not only against the colonists but also against the betrayal of our own people.
Philippines should be in Top 10 at least!
We've been colonized by the Spanish for 300 years, by the Americans, and by the Japanese. We've had great heroes that fought via novels. We've had a president who ruled for 21 years, and ending it by the "People Power or EDSA Revolution", and we've had theories of whether the first president assassinated Andres Bonifacio so that he can be the only president..
Ethiopian Is the only never colinzed country.
Number 1 best country in history
