To answer this question properly, we need to know the definition of "big". It could mean territory, population or a combination of both. Until this is clarified there can be no accurate answer, other than listing the larger ones. This would be unproductive.In more recent times however, the British empire was the largest one in so-called modern history. Earlier the Mongol empire and prior to that the Roman empire were the largest in their day.
