Rome
Britain never defeated the Romans, even shithuffing Picts were conquered by the legions, but romans decided to leave them beyond Hadrian's wall. Rome evacuated Britain and germanic Anglo-Saxon-Jutes were the ones who conquered it.
Spain
Didn't defeat Spanish empire, Spain was destroyed by Napoleon and colonial revolutionaries.
Napoleons France
Maybe on sea, but never on the land. Napoleon was defeated by combination of Russians, Prussians and Austrian army coaltions and Brits did play a small part in it, but not much. Even in Peninsular war, the french army was defeted by spanish guerrilas.

Nazi Germany
Hahahaha, no. Soviet Union and USA defeated the germans, brits were on little big higher on level with Italy irrelevance durring 1944-1945(fucking irelevant)
Soviet Union
Literally not in any sense, Soviets crumble on their own due to bad economy and self-destructive politics that failed to reform.

When all of Contienntal europe is in a depression because of Napoleon's British blocakde choking them of exports, and the British are generating more wealth than the rest of Europe combined, it is fair to call them a superpower.

When the British blockade Germany and choke it's oil resources, it is fair to call it a superpower.

When the British mobilize an army of over 2 million men by 1918, it is fair to call them a superpower.

The isolation of the United States is at an end, not because we chose to go into the politics of the world, but because by the sheer genius of this people and the growth of our power we have become a determining factor in the history of mankind, and after you had become a determining factor you can not remain isolated, whether you want to or not. Isolation ended by the processes of history, not by the processes of our independent choice, and the processes of history merely fulfilled the prediction of the men who founded our Republic. Go back and read some of the immortal sentences of the men that assisted to frame this Government and see how they set up a standard to which they intended that the nations of the world should rally. They said to the people of the world, "Come to us; this is the home of liberty; this is the place where mankind can learn how to govern their own affairs and straighten out their own difficulties," and the world did come to us.

Nope
Back then, Europe was the center of the world, and Britain was irrelevant as fuck there

The Seven Years War was above all a war in Europe, in which Prussia faced Russia, France and Austria
Britain struggling for a decade against a tiny French force in America while France was focused on Prussia doesn't mean that Britain was stronger than France, on the contrary

For someone like me, I'd pretty much have to claim American. I've dug through pretty much every line of my family tree and I've managed to find exactly two ancestors with immigration records to the North America. One was Philip Walker, in like 1637, of which I'd guess millions of Americans can trace their lineage to at this point, and then one Great (x3) Grandfather from Switzerland, who came in 1883. My DNA results show me to be somewhere between 50-90% continental western European, but considering most of my lineages lose track between 1800-1840 (very low period for immigration), almost all of my ancestors seem to be old stock.

The US and Russia both contributed more to WW2. The British had only 20% of the forces at Waterloo. The Germans without a doubt did more to defeat Napoleon the final time.

Anglo blood is what unifies Americans whatever their self-imposed hyphenation is. There are way more descendants of Anglos than any other group in the US, since people can be of more than one ancestral background.

What? Anglo's got BTFO constantly and only got ahead because they were an Island so they could just dedicate most resources to their navy and invasion was near impossible before the rise of the airplane.

Pretty sure everyone knows this, that's why Britain maintained it's "balance of power" policy.

Oh shut the fuck up Krautnigger. Anglos had superior army and Navy to any world power, and conquered 1/4 of the world, while Krautniggers were still a clusterfuck of small, irrelevant shitholes.

Not really. France and Germany are still pretty relevant on the world stage. Actually this is arguably the time when France has become more relevant than Britain again ever since they lost the Seven Years' War. Meanwhile Britain continues its eventual strides into irrelevance in its own little island. Britain has no future, as it can only clings to nostalgia, being unable to move forward nor showing desires to do so.
