Dbq Fall Of Rome

245 Words1 Page

I agree that Rome was not overthrown by external enemies but was defeated by its own internal problems. The fall of Rome was mainly due to internal problems because the Romans were only fulfilling their own needs, the law were not reliable and the struggle with the right emperor led to the end of Rome. These internal problems made the empire unstable and led to external problems. For example, in document C, Marcellinus, a Roman soldier criticizes the Romans for being selfish and only worrying about themselves. This supports my position because the resources to build the bronze figures could have been used for military and economic uses, instead they used it for their afterlife uses. The Romans aren’t considering what problems Rome was facing.
