Largest Country in Africa by Year

Given the time interval, name the largest country in Africa by area during that time.
Obviously, some of these no longer exist.
Source. Not the most accurate, but for the purposes of this quiz it is sufficient.
Only counting civilizations with established territory. The First entry is a long series of dynasties which are either known by a number or collectively as a single answer. While I recognize they are not all the same, I think it's unfair to separate them and not accept the obvious answer by which they're all known.
Only counting territory in Africa, bounded by the Sinai Peninsula.

Largest in terms of area or population? Was puzzled for ages that 'Nigeria' didn't work so I assume it must be area, but do spell it out upfront.
