The mighty Roman Empire was divided for easier control in 285 CE by emperor Diocletian. The wealthy eastern empire lived on as the Byzantine Empire, while the western half declined into the middle ages from 500-1500 CE. In an attempt to revive the Holy Roman Empire, the Frankish Empire emerges, ruled most importantly by Charlemagne. In this time period, the Church was able to become higher than the state with a partnership between the pope and the emperor. The Frankish Empire lasted 35 years after Charlemagne’s death, but his three grandsons went to war over who the successor of the Frankish empire was.
The consequence of this narrative perspective can be assumed that the narration has accelerated, and it may appear, that the empire has been leaded in a rapid change of rulers into the chaos. So, we get fifteen emperors until the fall of Rome. In the end, this led to the dissolution of the Roman Empire, and the senate decided that the imperial dignity would no longer be awarded in Rome, but only in
In America, Spain, France, Britain and Russia (In parts of Alaska) had colonised the vast majority of the country. On the east, Britain and France had colonised almost all modern-day states, Spain’s authority was primarily in Central and South America and the southern states in America. The long-lasting impact of European colonialism in America was defined by the American Revolution, which not only ended with a collapse in the British colony, but the Treaty of Paris was signed, granting recognition of the colonies independence (Calloway, 2006). This was the beginning of modern America, and this was clearly impacted, if not completely due to European imperialism. The British Empire notably colonised Australia and sent upwards of 150,000 criminals to prisons on the country (Shaw, 1966).
The World War 1 started from 1914 to 1918 and it lasted for 4 years. The World War II started at 1939 to 1945 and it lasted for 6 years. The two world wars have distinct periods and durations. As a comparison, the World War II lasted longer.
The Roman Empire lasted about 500 years from about 47 BC to AD 476. It started in Italy and eventually extended throughout Europe, western Asia, and northern Africa. Julius Caesar became dictator for life and was assassinated by the senate, however this began the transfer from a republic to an empire. The Roman Empire grew over time, getting bigger. Although it thrived, it fell around 476 C.E because of major issues.
The 1st and 2nd centuries B.C.E. were an influential tipping point in history. Obviously there lies a reason why this is the time in history where we move into the common era. A growing dissatisfaction around the world on how empires ruled led to some large, influential administrations falling. Some groups that entered the power vacuum include the Han Dynasty in China and the emergence of an imperial Rome. The imperial administrations of Han China (206 B.C.E.- 220 C.E.) and imperial Rome (31 B.C.E.-476 C.E.) had similar set-up bureaucracies and saw their downfall through their alike policies, however their method to define society differed.
The Middle Ages, also known as the Dark Ages, lasted from 500-1500 C.E. Around that time, the Western Roman Empire fell, causing everything to go out of order in Western Europe. People during that time were basically Romans, and those living in the Eastern Roman Empire - the Byzantine Empire - were also Romans. Hence, the culture in the Medieval Ages was similar to the culture in the Byzantine Empire. Cultures, throughout the world, build on one another - just like how the Roman Empire influenced the Medieval Culture. The Medieval culture influenced American culture today.
After the Fourth Crusade ended, Constantinople was left in chaos. The city never regained its status as the most powerful and wealthiest city in Asia Minor until six decades later when the Ottoman Empire took conquered the city during the Ottoman Conquests. Art, treasures, and relics that were a thousand year old were taken out of the city as a victory price within three days. The greed of Venice and the gullibility of the Crusaders created the destruction of the strongest city that had existed for over a millennia. The Fourth Crusade was manipulated from the beginning, resulting in the conquest of Constantinople, instead of Egypt and Jerusalem.
Based on Chapters 6 and 7, describe how power was exercised and by whom in the Eastern and in the Western Empire. Theodosius- last emperor to rule over both East and West Power was most times taken by force in 500; Barbarian tribes in Western wreaked havoc with constant barbarian invasions (Barbarians vs Europe= why barbarian means uncivilized and cruel). Ostrogoths established a kingdom in Italy that eventually fell to imperial troops, which left Northern Italy left defenseless -Because of this, the Lombards came in and established their own kingdom Franks entered the Roman province of Gaul (which included France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and parts of Switzerland and Germany), and conquered all by 534 6th century; There was no more Roman structure of
Attila the Hun was the feared and ruthless leader of the nomadic people known as the Huns from 435 CE until his death in 453 CE. Living in the Hungarian Plains, Attila and the Huns controlled the Western and Eastern frontier of the Roman Empire. During his reign, he invaded the empire on several occasions. Attila the Hun was the one responsible for bringing the Huns to their greatest strength and who posed the greatest threat to the Roman Empire. During his first few years of his reign, he had been apart of a diarchy with his brother, Bleda, until his untimely death in 444 CE.
The Roman Empire, at its height (c. 117 CE), was the most extensive political and social structure in western civilization. By 285 CE the empire had grown too vast to be ruled from the central government at Rome and so was divided by Emperor Diocletian into a Western and an Eastern Empire. The Roman Empire began when Augustus Caesar became the first emperor of Rome (31 BCE) and ended, in the west, when the last Roman emperor, Romulus Augustulus, was deposed by the Germanic King Odoacer (476 CE). In the east, it continued as the Byzantine Empire until the death of Constantine XI and the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453 CE. The influence of the Roman Empire on western civilization was profound in its lasting contributions to
World War I began on July 28, 1914 and lasted until November 11, 1918. Differences in foreign policies were to blame, although the immediate cause was the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. The two main sides were the Allies, which included France, Great Britain and Russia; and Germany and Austria- Hungary. Thirty countries were involved total. World War I was the first global conflict, also known as “The Great War”.
In 1871 France sought control to regain control of Alsace and Lorraine. 1894 the French Republic formed an alliance with the Russian Empire. During the peace, over the next 40 years, the major powers of Europe all competed to build bigger armies than their rivals. In 1904, Britain negotiated an entente
