Greatest Conquerer in History

Post by TNine on Mon Jun 08, 2009 7:03 pm

Just decided to make this for no real reason.

I'll have to go with Genghis Khan, came from left for dead to conquerer of most of Asia and parts of Europe and Africa.

Julius Ceasar and Napolean Bonaparte are up there though.

Alexander the Great is pretty high up there, so is Genghis Khan.
Can't forget Hannibal, though he was more of a general than a conqueror, but he did conqueror Spain and a few other places (and would've conquerer Rome had Carthage sent him some more troops after he destroyed most of the Roman army in the battle of Cannae).

Hannibal's problem wasn't a lack of skill

it was a misunderstanding of how the Roman system worked. He was trying to break apart a confederation that did not exist.

Whoever the hell conquered the territory that is now Russia.

It may not be the largest conquest, but it did make the largest country even today.

Genghis Khan staged the first and only succesful winter attack in Russia. He would have conquered it easily, but he instead focused on the Muslim Empire.

Napoleon fought and won more battles than Alexander, Hannible, Caeser, Peter, and Fredric combined.

He wins.

One of Genghis Khan's Generals, Tsubodai, routed a 12,000 man army with 750 men.

More with just Genghis, i don't believe Genghis has ever been in control and lost a battle.

I'm pretty sure that Genghis Khan had more territory, same with Alexander the Great, among others.

I think I'm the greatest general, as in Medieval II: Total War I routed a full army from the late game with 3 battalions of peasents.

Hitler almost controlled all of Europe and nearly destroyed England. He also got lots of people to kill 6 million Jews for the some crazy reason. He had some pretty insane leadership skills.

He could of made a man jump off a cliff for no reason execpt to furfill a "final solution".

And fixed the German economy in almost 6 years.

... He did all of this in 6 years even though Germany lost land during the Treaty of Versasslis (spelling), German government was broke, and the great deppression had deep effect on everyone.

He beat Poland with a surprise attack.
He attacked Belgium to get to France.
France auto-loses.
He broke a treaty with Russia.

He was a great conqueror, as he just attacked random countries for no real reason.

Germany lost because of Hitler.

He was crazy. He just felt like attacking. Probably the drugs.

he attacked Russia because it had such a high population of Jews and Slavs, both of which he HATED

that's my view

Pssh, that's nothing. I've killed about 1200 enemies of a higher tech level with only like 150 guys. (by 1200 I mean about 1500, and by 150, I mean about 300, but they did suck)

So you exaggerated? Congrats.

When I say I did it, they actually did. 3 battalions of peasents v. Feudal Knights, Dismounted Feudal Knights, Yeoman Archers, and Heavy Levy Men should not end well for the peasents, but it did!
