    This video shows the most populated cities(agglomeration) in Europe through history from the first civilizations until nowadays.
    This video shows the European history about the top 11 largest cities by population in European history from 7000 BC to current year 2020. This video shows Europe's largest city ancient history and demographics from 7000 BC to present year 2020.
    The Population of these european cities is noted as per historical data and slight mistakes and fluctuations are possible as this data is very old and exact numbers is impossible but after many days of continuous research I have compiled this video and provided my best effort to make this data as accurate as possible, also the cities flags are given according to the today's current location of cities and for people to better understand as all of them are not historians and also because some of ancient flags are missing.

    I use Alien Art Charts to make those videos, use this link alienart.io/?referer=626917e1.. . to make similar videos as mine.

It's fascinating and impressive how many times Constantinople / Istanbul rose to the top and dropped right off the map only to rise back up to the top again. Really shows the historic importance and strategic geography of this unique city!

It must've been fascinating to visit Rome in the Middle Ages. A city that was once inhabited by a million people only to lose a vast majority of its population. The ultimate tour of ruins.

There is something quite wrong with this visualization: it seems to just be using simple linear extrapolation since it doesn't show some well-documented population declines. For instance, the black death (1347-52) hit cities particularly hard, and killed somewhere in the neighbourhood of 50% of the urban population of Europe. Some cities (e.g., Florence) had documented numbers above 70% mortality). Likewise, Leningrad (St. Petersburg) suffered a death toll between 1-5 million during ww2, but this is not reflected here. Still, despite this criticism, it was fun to watch!

I'm not as fascinated by the growth of the cities as I am by the shrinking. Rome had a million people living there in Roman times (guess this also shows why they were called Roman times), and then it shrunk back to 40.000 and less, it must've been like a ghost town.

Rome, Mediolanum (Milan), Athens. They all returned to the top of the list after 2000 years. Incredible.

It took 1700-1800 years to brake that 1000000 pop record by Rome. Just shows how great was Rome 2000 years ago. I don't think we can completely fathom the magnitude of ancient Rome. Truly.. an eternal city.

It is important to differentiate between metropolitan areas and cities. Paris has just over 2 million citizens, but its metropolitan area exceeds 12 million. Madrid has 3,305,408 citizens while its metropolitan area is just over 5 million and the province is close to 7 million. All the data are mixed.

It’s interesting to see each country taking the lead throughout the times… Of course this is just agglomeration it does not take into account other entry otherwise I think it might have been very different in some periods…

It took 1700 years for London to reach a million inhabitants in Europe after Rome did in 100 AD. Goes to show how immeasurably magnificent and grandiose Rome truly was for its era.

As someone from Spain, the notion that Cordoba surpassed Constantinople in population and was the largest city in Europe for some solid years, it's absolutely wild

Rome was impressive it took 1700 years till another city was able to reach a million citizens again.

It's interesting to see in ancient times how cities would hit their carrying capacity of a few thousand and start to shrink (if they weren't invaded and decimated). Cities didn't have the possibility of growing exponentially like they do today. I think besides technology, the biggest difference between life then and now is just how few people there were. Even in the largest cities you probably knew most people for thousands of years

Greece staying in the top 11 for 8,500 years is impressive

Just looking at the numbers, you can understand or remember what happened historically, following migration patterns. By the way it took 1600 years to replicate 1M Metropolitan population in Rome for London. Numbers are always so important to look and analyse, they explain reality.

i find it quite impressive how Rome went from 1.1 million to 30.000 population. I mean already thinking about the space, 1.1 million ppl take a lot of that, and then 30.000 ppl living in a city where at some point have been 1.1 million, thats very hard to imagine

Athens has made a massive comeback . It went from almost 400,000 in ancient times to just about 8000 in the early 1800’s, now at almost 4 million

Ancient Rome had a population of 1 million. Its amazing that it took nearly 2000 years for London to become only the second city in Europe to do it.
