comment How did Edward Misselden become a deputy-governor of a merchant company at 15?
@Cerberus Thanks for the validation and the full form of "fl"! I've updated my answer and replaced the FAQ reference to point to the Wikipedia page for 'floruit'.

comment Why did so many rulers want to aquire more land?
I don't have time to research this properly, but I think there's a good counterexample in Imperial Roman history: after about Hadrian, the empire largely gave up expansion, and fought hard to maintain its existing lands. For instance, lands conquered in Mesopotamia would be returned in peace treaties relatively soon afterwards. In fact, a lot of diplomatic work went into making sure that Armenia stayed independent as a buffer state between Rome and Persia; the goal being peace and prosperity, not conquest.

comment Where are Genghis Khan's Mongols?
You've left out one of the big ones: the Mughal Empire which ruled over much of northern India from 1526 to the 1700s for sure and nominally until 1857 was founded by Babur, a descendant of both Genghis Khan and Timur-i-Lung (Timur the Lame). The last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah II is claimed to be the last ruler of the Timurid dynasty.
