What is the difference between the Tsardom of Russia and the Russian Empire? Also, "American" doesn't work for the US. And in what way is the Rashidun Caliphate a different state from the Umayyad (or even the Umayyad from the Abbasid, for that matter)?

since when has the USA been an empire?
Oct 22nd, 2009 at 00:57 GMT
umayyad and abbasid are historically different empires. from 1896-1902 USA was considered imprealist. But my promlem is in the different Khaganates, its all just the Mongolian empire

@shenry1313 I'm not really sure that the US stopped being imperialist in 1902, otherwise I wouldn't be paying for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hmm. I'd say combine the Mongol ones. Surprised that the Mughal empire doesn't feature.
Oct 22nd, 2009 at 17:07 GMT
Ok. I've grouped the separate Khaganates under the banner of Mongol. You get 4 for 1 now.

Soviet Union doesn't count? Or not big enough?

@aeihdahm: In the traditionalist sense, the American Empire varied in size and power. Keep in mind that it had acquired lands from the Native Americans, acquired territories from Mexico, annexed the Kingdom/Republic of Hawaii, won Cuba from the Spanish, and conquered the Philippines. Not to mention the other places after WWII that did not gain their autonomy until much later...ie, Micronesia, Palau, Marshall Islands, etc.

I'm surprised the Ottoman Empire didn't make it onto this list.

Would you accept 'Islamic empire' or even just the 'Caliphates' for the Caliphates? I couldn't remember the exact names of them all.
Apr 6th, 2010 at 20:47 GMT
You can't combine the Khaganates because they were all extremely large empires left behind after the Mongol Empire was split up during Kublai Khan's reign.

The Umayyads and abbasids were different dynasties, and they ruled from different capitals. That being said, I'm not sure they should be seen as different states. There was a civil war within the Caliphate, and the Abbasids defeated the Umayyads and took over. The Abbasids weren't their own state which invaded and conquered the Umayyad Caliphate. And it's irksome that you've been here and not bothered to address what was the difference between the "Russian Empire" and the "Tsardom of Russia", and why they are listed separately.

I would accept more answers for the same empire because I couldn't figure out how to get China, especially considering "Mongol" counts

The US is slackin, we need to kick this into high gear
