    As an afghan I have never researched it myself since so many afghans have told me Alexander failed to conquer Afghanistan, so thank you for that and forgive me for my ignorance
    Bactria was a very wealthy kingdom. The biggest gold coin ever minted was made there by the Greek king Eucratides to commemorate his conquest of India.

    Napoleon? Stabilised France post revolution, made France a European powerhouse.

    I'm guessing consensus for Genghis Khan or Caesar?

    Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He changed the face of the world in only 23 years and his legacy can be seen today 1400 by the billions who follow his path, not to mention the most common name in the world is now Muhammad which just goes to show how great he was.

    Queen Victoria got lucky. She was incidentally ruler while Britain was going through it's period of strength, which was made possible by the conquests of previous monarchs and it's economic power.

    Djimi Traore has a Champions League winners medal. Don't make him any good at football.
