Top 70 Greatest Kings Of All Time

Who are the greatest kings of history? There were many great rules born but it is difficult to pick up the greatest kings of all time.

Before the Internet era, the word great was only used for the great Pharaohs, Emperors, Generals and Kings. The never ending hunger of Power has resulted in many deadliest wars and most fierce conquerors. However not all of them can be called great. The title of Great can only be given to those kings who not only ruled on the largest empire but also advanced its civilization culturally, economically, technically and socially.

From past thousand years, our planet saw many great kings and fierce conquerors. There were rulers like Alexander the Great who extended their kingdom to the Far East and there were kings like Chandragupta Maurya who taught the world about the philosophy of war. But no matter what, none of the great king ruled without bloodshed and wars. In fact even the most peaceful king such as Ashoka the great fought some of the deadliest wars.

Here we have compiled a list of 70 greatest kings of all time. These kings are chosen on the basis of their reign time, the advancement in technology during their rule, the prosperity of their kingdom during their rule and of course the size of their empire. You are going to find many greatest kings of the ancient world. We have focused on gender equality on this list. So you are going to find greatest empress and queens as well on this list.
