Ages and reigns of famous leaders throughout history. The coverage is a little odd. Mao but not Castro? No Khans?
Here’s a similar chart of the empires themselves. I’m told this is an awesome graphic, but I can’t read Italian.

Ohh man…English please on that Italian chart! It’s a more detailed version of the classic Joseph Priestly chart of empires through time which is one of my favorites–

as for the infographic in italian,it’s good but not so awesome, in my opinion.
Anyway I’trying to translate:
– empires are ordered vertically, by the year of collapse;
– the small colored squares near each empire represents the continents where they ruled;
– the length of every main rectangular block represents the spread over time, that is their longevity, with the yellow line showing the year of maximum expansion;
– the height of every block is the maximum reached expansion;
– the color of every main block represents the cause of the empire’s fall (listed there from up to down: war, turmoil, indipendence of the the colonies, division, formal procedure of dissolution);
– Blue italian big letters shows the (main) form of the government (listed there from up to down: monarchy, despotism, elective monarchy, constitutional monarchy, republic, oligarchy, princedom, caliphate);
