The most powerful armies in the history of the ancient world

The history of the world is made of wars. In particular, countries are still trying to strengthen their military. Here are the top 3 of the most powerful armies in the history of the ancient world whose reputation has become “legendary” and the fear of the enemy.

1. Sparta

The Spartans were one of the most powerful elite armies in the ancient world. They were the first professional army in history, with strong will and strict discipline. To become good and mighty warriors, every Sparta warrior had to go through an extremely austere process from an early age.

Legend has it that the children chosen as warriors will be trained at the age of 7. They are sent to barracks far from home, the instructors will teach the boys basic knowledge, warfare, camouflage, hunting and sports. During the Persian War, the Spartans fought with great force and achieved many great victories.

2. Genghis Khan’s army

Genghis Khan’s Mongol Empire was on a scale unprecedented in the world. In order to build this empire, he created an army of terrible carnage. The Mongolian army defeated many military powers of the time, from Asia to Europe.

Every Mongolian cavalry is compared to horrible killing machines, when in battle they have only one thought: to rush onto the battlefield and slaughter the enemy.

The Mongolian army numbered around a million men, mostly cavalry. This army is particularly mobile thanks to its excellent horse riding and archery ability. Each cavalry has about 3 to 4 horses to ensure the fight.

Contrary to what many people still think, the Mongolian army was extremely disciplined, thanks to which the commanders could fully exploit new tactics such as lightning strikes and deep blows.

3. Army of the Roman Empire
