  1. Hey WatchMojo, I think You should study history properly, because you didn’t mention Chola emperor.Chola army walk through the enemy’s land, enemy people assume some earthquake happen in our area.

  2. Why do westerners always say Persian gulf while the majority of the inhabitants of the gulf are majority Arab even on the Iranian coast

  3. Can you pls do the most diabolical leaders that were effective at what they did. Hitler, Temujin, Vlad Tepes, etc., thnx

  4. if this is based on sze sure but the fact that the united tribes of alba(scotland) dont get mentioned people who basically took on the roman empire and kick their arses so bad the romans built a wall and called the land the end of the world is a tragedy
