      Flavius Belisarius- Impressive victories for the Byzantines.
      Genghis Khan-Impressive victories and conquered so much territory.
      William the Conquerer-We wouldn't be conversing in English, and there wouldn't be countries called United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc without his victory at Hastings.
      Charlamegne-Nobody did more for spreading Christianity in Western Europe than him, and he setup up many learning facilities, and the people of Western Europe became more literate
      Alexander the Great-impressive victories and conquered so much territory. Greek influence on future civlizations still seen in today's world.

        In all of the polls I picked people not just because of their ability in combat but for other aspects of generalship, such as building the organisation required for a great army and their effect on history. I think some figures, Qin, may get overlooked because they are not well known in our Western oriented education.

        Quick question... Did Genghis Khan conquor more territory than Alexander The Great?

          I believe the Mongol Empire was bigger, but it was conquered by more than one guy, over a larger period of time. It certainly lasted longer!

            Gengis Khan conqured more. It was probably the second largest land Empire in history. Some people say the largest, but, I belive the Islamic Empire was bigger.
