- EarlyMid4 – Fall of Rome


The Fall of Rome
By 400 A.D. the once great Roman Empire was beginning to fade.
By now the Empire was divided into Eastern and Western halves.
The Western Empire saw the most dramatic decline of knowledge, citizenship and government.
The West. Emp. was quickly being overrun by barbarians, and these barbarians eventually invaded and sacked Rome in 410 A.D.
By 476 A.D. the last of the West. Roman Emperors was overthrown, officially bringing an end to the great Roman Empire.
What replaced the Roman Empire in Europe was a large “hodge-podge” of kingdoms and tribal organizations that had more of a resemblance to modern day gangs than any real type of formal government.
This was the beginning of what is now referred to as the “Dark Ages”.
