    Somewhere we must acknowledge the Chinese, Muslim and Indian empires, hard to place them among these other giant influencers.

    To those arguing for Rome, I add that the Later Empire still has an enormous influence in Eastern Europe: religious practices, the use of the Julian Calender, legal systems etc.

    I add that we in the west are still largely 'Rome', for it never 'fell', it merely evolved.

    There was a series called Empires that devoted an entire chapter just to Martin Luther who effectively started the religious reformation by emphasizing the individual over the institution. In fact, his attacks on the corruption of the Catholic hierarchy may have been pivotal to the development of western civilizations.

    PBS - Empires Series

    Martin Luther | PBS

    Few if any men have changed the course of history like Martin Luther. In less than ten years, this fevered German monk plunged a knife into the heart of an empire that had ruled for a thousand years, and set in motion a train of revolution, war and conflict that would reshape Western civilization, and lift it out of the Dark Ages.

    Luther's is a drama that still resonates half a millennium on. It's an epic tale that stretches from the gilded corridors of the Vatican to the weathered church door of a small South German town; from the barbarous pyres of heretics to the technological triumph of printing. It is the story of the birth of the modern age, of the collapse of medieval feudalism, and the first shaping of ideals of freedom and liberty that lie at the heart of the 21st century.

    Well, I'm looking at what Claudius wrote and its pretty accurate. I believe that several more empires were omitted, but this list was a demonstrative example rather then a textbook.

    Ottoman Empire (1299 to 1922)

    Capitol: Istanbul.
    Population: 35,350,000 (1856)
    Area: 5,200,000 km2

    The Ottoman Empire can undoubtedly be called the greatest Muslim empire of all time because it stayed on the face of the globe for nearly 700 years. The empire was one of the largest and the longest ruling empire in history. During the 16th and 17th century the empire became the most powerful state of the world.

    The first Ottomans were Turkish soldiers known as ghaziz. They had come to Anatolia with other Turks to escape the Mongols. In late 1200 a ghazi leader named Osman had great success in fighting the Byzantines. His tribe members became known as the Ottoman.
