In Document 1 it states that people gave up on the Roman Empire and didn’t believe it was worth saving. Citizens weren’t allowed to take part in politics and were excluded from their own army. The government slowly lost support which increased the level of government fraud. Also, population decline was a big factor to the fall of Rome; it had decreased from 1,000,000 people to 250,000. The cause of the decrease was the lack of reproduction, plagues, warfare and lead poising, this made it difficult to recruit troops and economic life got worse.
It is true that there are other reasons that explain Rome’s decline. For example. Political assassinations and natural disasters. However the three reasons above - foreign invasion, legal injustice, and especially military problems - provide the best explanation why Rome finally crumbled in the 5th century
The Roman Empire fell in 476 C.E ,no one knows the exact reason why rome fell but there are some ideas. There are many reasons why Rome fell, here are 3 things that contributed to the fall of the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire fell because of disasters and diseases, military weaknesses, and weak leadership.
Including most of the Mediterranean world, Rome, a city that was growing big enough to become one of the world’s largest empire’s would soon slowly fall apart because of their problems. In 27 BC, Rome’s first emperor, Augustus Caesar, took complete power. During his time, he ruled with Pax Romana, a time of Roman peace which lasted for almost 200 years. After his death, the Roman Empire begun to break apart. The primary reasons for the fall of Rome was it being geographically too big; the population was decreasing due to plagues which led to the Roman army becoming weak, social and military issues and laziness of the military would guide the army down which led to cities being lost, and their government and leadership issues of the weak or selfish power leaders would all conduct to the breaking up of Rome.
One of the biggest reasons Rome fell is because the military. The military started to become sluggish and weak. Since this happened soldiers fought the goths without any protection for their chests and heads (doc B.) This made it so soldiers were easily killed in battle by archers. Adding on to that Soldiers were exposed to wounds because they have no armour so they would think about running and not fighting (doc B.) Senators, bureaucrats, clergymen, cooks, bakers, and slaves all avoided the draft not giving enough people into to military (doc B.) It became very easy for anyone around them to invade and take over land. These are all reasons the military effected the fall of Rome.
One reason Rome fell was because of weak leadership. According to document A Roman leaders would die because of assassination, suicide and because of natural causes. Romans would become leaders and would die because of assassination and a few would die because of natural causes. Rome was also very violent because there was too much death.
The great Empire of Rome, the greatest power to have ruled the Mediterranean. The Roman empire thrived in the time of Julius Caesar around 47 BC. Caesar had made Rome into an empire, but after he died, Rome started its downfall. It was unthinkable. The great Roman empire’s reign was over. There was no one single cause; it was many things happening at once, which caused the fall of Rome. The downfall happened with the army weakening, natural disasters and plagues rising, and leaders becoming corrupted all contributed to their fall.
The legendary Roman Empire lasted from 753 B.C.E. all the way until 1453 A.D. However Rome split in two at about 395 A.D. which crippled the ancient Rome we know. So really ancient Rome lived from 753 B.C.E. to 476 A.D. But the name of Rome continued on in the Byzantine empire for about another 1000 years. Yet many people nowadays still refer to Rome as one of the greatest ancient civilizations of all time. They thought this because Rome was leaps and bounds ahead of others in military, political, economic,architectural, and technological aspects. But Rome was far from perfect, because of its split in 395 A.D. ancient Rome began falling apart. The things that made it great became its downfall. But there were many important factors that made Rome fall, but the most prominent were military, economic, and religious factors.
In conclusion, The three Major causes of the the Fall of Rome were Economic Problems, Socico-Politcal problems, and external invasions The Roman Empire finally fell in 476 AD. The results of the Roman Empires Fall were that the Empire was completely destroyed and many new Empires were born. The Franks conquered most of the western empire after the fall of Rome. All Empires come to an end the Roman Empire was a stepping stone for many Empires that
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.
Another reason Rome fell is because Rome grew too large. Rome included so many different lands and people, it started to add even more problems for Rome's economy. When Rome's expansion slowed, other conquered lands and people couldn't be part of the Empire, making them not under Rome's control. When the Emperor tried so solve the problem by raising taxes, normal living citizens couldn't pay for them and became poor. Soon Rome became too big and couldn't pay for itself, so when it couldn't pay for itself, it couldn't control itself. There also weren't a lot of people to pay taxes and that made the economy
Invasion of Barbarians, Economic troubles and over reliance on slave labor, the rise of the eastern empire, overexpansion and military overspending, Government corruption and political instability, The arrival of the Huns and the migration of the Barbarian tribes, Christianity and the loss of traditional values. Weakening of the Roman legions, and lead poisoning which is what I think happened because there has been so much proof they had lead pipes which funneled their water, they had lead cups which, and with that much lead they got very sick and had mental diseases and that is one of the reasons it fell but I believe there was one other factor that helped make the Roman empire collapse and that is government corruption because their was so many corrupt king one of them liked to dine with his favorite horse in fancy restaurants, and liked watching mass murders in the colosseum and he later was killed, one of them was greedy and that was the reason the economy fell and it later destroyed itself and those were in my opinion why the Roman empire
Rome was very significant because it controlled most of Europe and it also had a lot of european culture. Rome fell after the rulers that came in the next century, didn’t know how to deal with Rome’s growing problems and it’s giant empire, therefore Rome began to fall. There were many contributions to the fall of Rome. For example, trade was disrupted, there was limited space and they began to lack new sources of gold and silver. Some people may argue that the Age Of Faith and The Dark Ages are the best labels to describe the era between 500 and 1500 in Europe. The best label to describe this time period is The Age Of Feudalism because the documents show what it was, how it began and how it helped.
They faced the problem of paying for its own large army, the government was in need of money, Romans had no jobs, the Romans were becoming ever penniless even as their armies were taking over the world, and by 100 B.C., Rome had come to be alienated. Some reasons for the fall of Rome were barbarian invasions, a rise in Christianity, inferior technology, immoderate military spending, a decline in morals and values, unemployment, inflation, political corruption, environmental and public health problems, and urban decay. most
The Roman empire was one of the most powerful or the most powerful empire in ancient times. A portion of this can be credited to its location in an area with good geography and climate. However, once the empire was vast enough its geography varied quite a bit. It went from the moderate climate of northern Italy too much warmer climates in northern Africa. In Italy, the central part of the empire, stood the city of Rome. Back when Rome was just a small village along the banks of the Tiber river, its geography gave it many advantages. One of the biggest of those is its location along a river. Because these were hundreds of years in B.C.E. people relied on rivers and ponds for drinking and bathing. However, rivers were much better than lakes
