This is just part one of the list of empires that came close to two aspects of world domination: landmass, and control over majority of world population.

That being said, you will be surprised at some of the empires on the list. And while world domination remains a hypothetical power structure, there were cases where empires came close to it. All empires aspire to achieve a single political authority over virtually all the inhabitants of the planet. How close? Check in the video!
