The Wikipdia list of largest empires contains another list, a list of the largest empires of their eras, found at the bottom of the article.

In as far as one assumes that the list is accurate, and in so far as one assumes that equal areas of land were equally hard to conquer, that list could be considered a list of the mightiest powers of their eras.

Eh, but that is not so. First, population density is unequal, terrain is unequal as well. Therefore, some areas are much harder to conquer than other areas. Second, society, organization, technology also matter. Militarily, Russia was for long periods of time much weaker than primary European powers despite being much larger. So yeah, it is not really useful.
