    China.

    Rome was big, and a obviously influenced Europe, but China was the first, and, is arguably still in existence.

    British Empire. They were all over the world and influenced the development of many countries and civilizations, from Australia to Hong Kong to India to various places in Africa to the US and Canada, etc.

    I'd have to agree, that and for the general fact that most of the world that's been influenced by the British empire is a tolerable place to live, where the places that were not touched are mostly hell pits.

    By influential I largely mean it's influence on our world today
    The Roman Empire.

    They initiated representative government and seperated the military from that system. Let's not forget, the Legions were not permitted in Rome.

    Our democratic republic is, to a degree, modeled on the roman republic.

    The "Chinese Empire" was constrained and no longer exists. The Mongols expanded Chinese influence into central Europe.

    The roots of the main line Egypt-Hittites-Greece-Rome you can see in Göbekli Tepe (Asia minor, Turkey), where hunterers and gatherers produced a first civilisation. Maybe also India and China came out of this root. The astonishing thing: First was culture and civilisation - and afterwards followed agriculture and cities as center of civilisation. That's really very very astonishing. Pragmatically about 12000 years ago all mankind made a very gigantic perfect first step in Göbekli Tepe - everything was suddenly here what we call civilisation and started to evolve - and since this days we all together made perhaps a little second step and maybe we grew now to be ready to start to make a new step.

    But the jury's still out on him because I've heard he relentlessly tortured animals to death in extreme, cruel, ways.

    Whatever. He didn't try to suppress the natives. So there is that.

    The Greeks inspired the Romans who inspired Christiandom, which inspired Germanics, who settled Britain, who inspired The US which is uniquely influential today.

    But I think the Chinese still take it.

    The Mongols didn't destroy China, they took the reins of China.
