Best Answer

An empire grows by claiming more land around it. This is generally accomplished by conquering the neighboring countries, city-states, or regions, and making them part of the empire. New land can be acquired peacefully as well through treaties and alliances.

Historically an empire has been called an empire when is has a very large land area with multiple nationality contained in it borders and is rulered by an emperor with that said there is real finite definition of an empire other than the ruler being an emperor (only emperor left on the earth is the emperor of Japan and Japan is far from an empire in my mind).
