The Celtics were arguably the mightiest warriors in history. They invented a language still spoken today, a minor religion still used today, and had mythological figures STILL SEEN TODAY. Though not as popular as the Greeks or Romans, they ruled Gaelic Europe, making them one of the strongest and most prosperous civilizations to date!
Not an empire, just a lot of squabbling tribes.
Well it dominated the horn of Africa so it deserves a place
The greatest civilization and culture and not because I am african
The best empire
Goguryeo is the center of Korean Nationalism today. The word "Korea" itself derives from the word Goguryeo.
The Goguryeo Dynasty was a dominant power under Emperor Gwanggaeto the Great that influenced and directly controlled Baekje, Silla, Buyeo, Eastern Buyeo, Khitans, Mohe, Later Yan, and Yamato Japan.
After Goguryeo loses most of its power by the late 500s and the 600s, they still were able to destroy the Chinese Sui resulting in millions of Sui men dying. Over 3 million Sui Chinese were mobilized during the Goguryeo-Sui Wars and it was said that 90% of them died. They even defeated the Chinese Tang during the First Goguryeo-Tang wars, but eventually defeated by the Tang-Silla alliance in 668 only due to the internal conflicts between Yeon Gaesomun's (Military Dictator of Goguryeo) sons over power. - Stevenloveswaffles13
Amazing advances in exploration around Southern Africa
The first European worldwide empire.
First empire to unify the world.
They United three kingdoms into a one big kingdom and has developed a lot of new weapons and has started a big trading market with China. They've also fought Japanese from invading islands and has stopped China from coming downwards to their capital. They are an interesting and a proud dynasty for Koreans.
It became a foundation of current Korea and spread culture to Japan.
It was a great civilization and it was the start of the Korea now!

This is one of the best civilisations. This has the best drainage system and the best bathrooms or toilets. Indus Valley people built granary where they kept their grains. The special Jewellers used to make Jewellery with gold. They made statues with clay! Bronze and silver, they made good quality poetry, they made bowls, wheeled carts, wells, raised mounds and windows for houses too. In history I like to study about the Indus Valley civilisation.
The forgotten cradle of civilisation, the Indus people were highly advanced for their time, known best for their sophisticated urban planning and sewage systems, as well as their vast trade networks. A very under appreciated civilisation.
World oldest civilization and situated in largest delta in the world
World's oldest yet the most advanced society of it's time is at 30th place!

What came out of Mesopotamia is misrepresentation. Most of the empire's mentioned above all benefited from innovations the Mesopotamians.
Imso glad that some do read and research HISTORY S PAST. THESE EMPIRE HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, AMERICA 230 plus? YET THEY PROP THEMSELVES UP AS GODS GIFT TO THE WORLD. GIVE ME THE TRUE DOERS AND NOT THE NARSIS COUNTRY EHI IS DOOM TO FAIL AS ALL BIG POWERS HAVE DONE. MATTER IF TIME FOR U.S.OF A.
Despite the huge technological difference between the Inca and Spain they managed to beat them in several battles even capturing some of Spain's cannons and using them against them. They proved to be a worthy adversary to a country several thousand years ahead of them technologically and in my mind that makes them the greatest.
Pathetic. The other comments about it falling to 'barbarians' and that 'Americans are so stupid' is complete bull. The Byzantine Empire was indeed a strong nation, but the Ottomans were simply better and finished them off. And Constantinople will be Greek again? Complete bull. Turkey is far superior than Greece is today in economy, military, and doesn't have an insane debt.
Constantinople was the most beautiful city in the world until it was fell to the barbarians of the east the savage people that stole it's history I will never forget May 29 1453 the City will be Greek again it's redicules to put the USA well above the Byzantine Empire which was a Greek empire it's also highly inaccurate the American are so stupid to thing that they have the best civilisation in the world
Greatest civilization ever, bar none, is the Israelite civilization, because of God's blessings on them throughout history, past, present, and/or future. But also the most hated and punished for wickedness due to sin, at least, to date, with the former being the case because Satan hates God and His people of Israel more than any other seeing as Jesus, Son of God, came to Earth by being born there, to save the world from its sins and H@ll for eternity, if people would accept Him as their Lord and Saviour forever.

They could have conquered rome if the romans didn't copy their ships and destroyed their land
The Carthaginians could've accomplished much more if they hadn't been fighting over the same back-yard as the Romans. Equally advanced, just lacking the Roman military machine.
Carthage was an amazing empire, too bad they were all captured and made slaves in Rome. They also featured Hannibal, one of the best military leaders. - TurkeyasylumV 1 Comment
