Maps showing how many years each territory was ruled by the country

The territory of each country is changing through times. Each state in the world has reached its territorial peak, which then ends.

The British Empire had 35.5 million square kilometers under her rule and is the biggest empire ever built. Today Great Britain has a little 0.21 million square kilometers which brings the ratio between the largest extent and current territory to 0.59 percent. That means that the British lost 99.41 percent of their holdings. Mongols lost 93.6% of their territory, and Spaniards – 96.7%.

Also, large territories have lost Turkey (Ottoman Empire), Armenia, and Brunei.
