Probably the classical Roman Empire, although the Mongol Empire may have matched it in influence.

But the Roman Empire brought so much change to such a wide expanse of the known (at the time) world. The Mongol Empire was vast, but it did not leave as lasting an imprint as the Roman Empire did.

And welcome to UM, andes_wolf.

There are no wolves in the Andes.

But there is some sort of South American 'fox' that has very long legs, and it lives on the pampas, but not in the Andes.

You are a Turk, right? "Grey Wolf", maybe?

There are many sites about Turks claiming to be the ancestors of American Indians.

Well, I have my own site, and I posted there about "Turks" from Tuva (maybe I should simply call them "Siberians") who claim to the be the one and only true ancestors of the Native Americans.

But there we have a problem: you people have facial hair, Native Americans, or the "First People", do not have much facial hair.

Come on, this is all about nationalistic bullcrap.

"The Turks ruled the earth"

No, they didn't and they never did.

I have read online discussions between Greeks and Turks, and it is too stupid to even post links to.

For ancient world I usually go with the Mongol Empire as the "Most Powerful". And Rome would be "Most Influential to the future".

The militarily most powerful empire ever would have to be the Soviet Union. They had as many as 45000 nuclear warheads in the 1980's.

US is the overall most powerful would have the be the USA. It still is the leader in nuclear capability and military prjection worldwide, as well as top politically and fincanically. Not that we are better, just that we have more influence in more places and more financial pull in more places then anyone else.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
