  It all depends when in the period, what you define as China, India, Rome.... (see note below) and which metric you use, but on a GDP per capita basis (output per person), as borders moved and names changed, you get:

  ·1 - 600 AD - Rome (Italy)

  ·600 - 1200 AD - Islamic Caliphate(s) (Iraq, Turkey, Iran, ...)

  ·1200 - 1550 AD - Italy (But not an empire, at best an Italic League)

  ·1550 - 1850 AD - Netherlands (But not an empire, but largely the Dutch Republic)

  Note: between 1AD and 1870 AD South Asia's, GDP per capita has never been greater than that of China, though between 1870 and 1977 it was, and largely unified as a constituent part of the British Empire, or as a Union of nations in the current Republic.

  这取决于具体在哪个时代,你若何定义中国、印度、罗马等帝国(见下面的注释),和你采取的衡量规范。以人均GDP(人均产出)为基础,你会掉掉落以下答案:

  公元元年 - 600 :罗马(意大年夜利)

  公元600 - 1200 :ysl王国(伊拉克、土耳其、伊朗、…)

  公元1200 - 1550:意大年夜利(不是一个帝国,充其量是一个意大年夜利同盟)

  公元1550 - 1850:荷兰(不是一个帝国,逾越荷兰共和国的大年夜局部地区)

  注:在公元元年至1870年之间,南亚的人均GDP从未超越中国。

  Also have a read or the original source for the debate: World history by per capita GDP along with:

  ·How would the Roman empire and India's GDP compare in 1 AD?

  ·How did the Roman and Chinese Empires' GDP compare between 1 and 1000 AD?

  Then have a play with the raw data on: Historical Statistics of the World Economy: 1-2008 AD - knoema.com

  Or just grab it in Excel format here: Home Maddison

  A few GDP Per Capita charts in different formats:

  Note: The nation states of India and China are post WWII inventions, for a list of the numerous empires that have controlled part of the territory they now occupy, see: List of empires.
