The square of your Nan.
the were paid 1 pound
The British because they were bombed so much that they did not have the materials to fight
Due to the fact that the British empire operated pretty much all around the world and had to have the best navy to hold its vast empire, which it did for most if not all of the 19th century.
The British Empire that had evolved by AD 1900 was racked with internal problems. Though the empire reached its industrial peak, poverty continued to be a major problem.
In 1900, the British Empire covered one fifth of the globe in terms of land surface. At its height, it ruled over 458 million people.
Unusually, the British Empire was founded on trade and colonisation as much as by military conquest.
By the end of the 19th century, the British Empire accounted for 25% of the world's land surface.
The Ottoman Empire controlled most of the eastern Mediterranean. It even conquered a small part of Greece. That was in the olden times.
It was one of the busiest ports in the world and the capital city of the British Empire.
because the was too much of it
I t has a lot!
Britain was widely acknowledged as the leading world power from about 1815-1914. (However, its power within Europe was less).The sun never set on the British Empire. It covered so much territory that it was always daytime someplace in the Empire. They had Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, British Virgin Islands, much of the Middle East and many other areas in their control.
The largest contiguous empire (the largest empire confined to a single land mass) was the Mongol Empire which, at its largest extent covered 33,000,000 sq km or 12,741,000 sq miles, some 22% of the earth's total land area. The Mongol Empire was the second largest empire after the British Empire which was a maritime empire and not confined to a single land mass. The British Empire was the largest empire in history. At it's peak the Brirish Empire covered 36.6 million km² of land and contained around a quarter of the worlds population. After World War II much of the British Empire territories declared independence. Most still retain a close relationship with Britain, some even choosing to retain the British Monarch.
Because the British would not have so much opportunity to develop them in the British style and spirit.
