During the third-century was when Diocletian reformed the Rome empire into four divisions, which all had its own leader. Along with splitting Rome into four different divisions he also subdivided the government. Diocletian thought doing this would help strengthen the power of the empire. Diocletian reforms failed to bring political stability to the empire. Diocletian also tore apart Christianity because he did not feel it to be right to abandon the ancient religion. Diocletian also put much stress on rich and poor as his reforms carried high costs. All of these factors are what caused Rome to fall.
