Maritime & Land Empires
Transcript of Maritime & Land Empires
1450 CE to 1750 CE
The Mongols were a ruthless land empire. They ruled the majority of Asia and made many advances in technology, warfare, and communication. The Mongols were not a force to be reckoned with due to their highly advanced military tactics and strong home front.
Land empires are synonymous with large landmasses. The majority of the land was inhabitable but if the empire had a large and powerful army, it would've been able to prosper. The land empires also needed to be united in both the religious and government sectors to succeed. Due to being 'landlocked' the empires had to become self sufficient; agriculture and trade were very important to them. Forced labor and war was common in land empires.
Great Britain was/is a very successful maritime empire. It is an island that has been conquered by many peoples that most likely preferred the sea over land. The majority of Great Britain's economy came from overseas. They had several trade routes and an extremely powerful military. They dominated the market for many centuries.
Maritime empires are known for inhabiting areas of land near bodies of water. They preferred to stay separate and had no centralized power. The maritime empires were more private and self-sufficient compared to many land empires. Having no centralized power meant that the maritime empires could go from being large and powerful to small and weak within a couple of months. Maritime empires did not have very strong militaries and were much smaller than land empires.
