    They most likely have because they influenced things that influenced things that influenced things that influenced things that influences you.

    I'm enjoying them even if no-one else is haha, give's me a good opportunity to rant. I'm gonna go with Genghis Khan on this one as today there's little remaining influence from Alexander's empire to speak of because it was so short lived at the time, whereas Genghis Khan's influence can still be seen today. I'd even argue that him collapsing China and forming the Yuan dynasty caused the instability that eventually caused dynastical collapse and Communist takeover in China, though that may be a stretch.

    I'd say Genghis Khan, too because of the Pax Mongolica. But Alexander helped stop chariot usage on a large scale in warfare, helped begin the Alexandrian library which influenced things that influenced things that are important in the modern world. He spread Koine Greek, which influenced the Cyrillic alphabet. The list goes on.

    Was the alexandrian library the one that got burnt down and most of its shit was lost forever? And didn’t khan kill like the most percentage of people alive out of anyone ever? I would google but McPonalds is probably quicker

    I can confirm the Alexandrian Library one but I can't say I have a mental list of the most prolific killers, but I would assume Khan's up there with the big guys.
