The state that Europeans came to eye like greedy creditors around a rich man's deathbed was the _______ Empire.
I'm not sure what the answer is.
It probably was not Persian.
The other three empires fit -- depending upon the time period involved.
I thought it was Russia but im not positive.
I assume this is an exam that covers a wide time period. The best I can suggest is that you go back through your text materials to find the words "greedy creditors."
