Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam and Lisbon can all beconsidered good candidates for a spot on this list,but as far as the race for Empire building goes,London is the winner simply because English is themost widespread language of them all.
London was built by the Romans in 50 AD and bears a Celtic name derived from the word“Londinios” meaning “the place of the bold one.” The city had a rocky start, being invaded bythe Celts and the Vikings on several occasions. It was abandoned a couple of times, but peoplemanaged to find their way back. By the 1800s the population grew to over 950,000.
