“As we all know the Roman Empire, big empires go down if the borders are not well-protected”- (Mark Rutte). This quote was chosen because it says that even big empires go down if they are not well protected. One example of this was The Roman Empire, it was a big empire and was the most extensive political and social structured in western civilization, but since they weren´t well protected it fell. The Ancient Roman Army is different from the Roman´s Army nowadays. One example of this is the Roman Army, back then they weren’t allowed to marry while they were serving the army, and nowadays they are free to marry and free to have their own rights.
Augustus Caesar, often referred to as the creator of the Roman Empire, was Rome’s first emperor, and arguably its greatest one. Although his relationship with each varied, he understood the importance of gaining the support of the military, the senate, and the people. He rose to power and maintained his power as a result of this ability. During his lengthy reign, he oversaw the transformation of the political and religious institutions, economy, administration, and army of the fragile Roman Republic into those of the Roman Empire (Mellor 6). In addition to a sense of humor, Augustus possessed intelligence, ruthlessness, and political savvy— traits which enabled him to craftily legitimize his autocratic rule under the forms of traditional republican law, and establish the legal, political, and cultural foundations for an empire that would persist for the next 1500 years.
Living in such an enormous empire had its benefits. As a Roman, you had education, culture and the protection of the largest military empire on your side. Living in this Empire also had some notable drawbacks. The empire had extreme poverty rates, threats of being in a constant state of war, and the government could impose huge tax burdens on the people. The residents of Rome thought that affordable education was a necessity.
When a tribune tried to veto him, Tiberius had the tribune removed from office. This resulted in the passing of the bill, and the Senate’s last sympathetic ties with Tiberius. As the bill was enacted, questions of its funding started to arise. Tiberius proposed using money from a fortune left to Rome that was rightfully senatorial money. The threat of Tiberius to the power of the Senate then became too much.
A HTC is continuity and change. The conservative Romans had their own system of values and, because they were able to preserve them during the centuries (no matter how many kinds of rulership changed), that provided continuity of Rome. The relationships between classes (patrons and clients) were a factor that provided stability. But a gradual change has happened, as the gap between rich and poor widened. The changing economy led to more poor people, and the higher class could not control them anymore.
This coin was replaced by the Aes Grave. Overtime, the Romans developed more coins. The Romans economic system was great, and though it wasn’t as great as their army, their economic system had very little flaws and was a great part of their common goods, so I would give the Romans economic system an
There are not many people who have changed the course of history for their country and brought a new hope and dynasty to them in short years of rule. Julius Caesar helped form the First Triumvirate and worked his way up to dictatorship. He brought greatness to the civilization of Rome and gave the people a leader that they would go on to love and be remembered forever. He was a great leader of the Roman Republic who innovated to the Roman Empire by greatly capturing other lands and spreading the culture there establishing its imperial system. Julius Caesar was born to Gaius Caesar and Aurelia Cotta on July 12, 100 BC in Rome.
The issue of instability between the invasions on the eastern and western frontier along with the reduced tax earning from losing land and overall wealth demand caused by these infractions hit on external problems that pestered the empire. The "widespread of tax relief that the Imperial government was forced to grant in for 10, the year after the goals had left the peninsula"29 was how Ward-Perkins described the invasions that cause this long-term damage to the tax base and foundation of this empire. This instability within the empire among their revenue stream caused a ruckus and overall despair among the society. The throne was seen as being strangled by foreign invaders if this was a time where the emperor needed more revenue streams to support the bad habits and debts of a government that was unable to support bad habits. 16 this ultimately broke down the military legions of Rome to protect their own borders and ultimately fall to their foreign
Julius Caesar proved that he was one of the greatest Romans to be apart of Rome and with his military strategies that led him to conquer most of Gaul and parks of England, this shows that he was a true genius. The way that he was able to manipulate the government so he would win his election is just so elegant. He got the richest man in Rome and one of the most respected and joined them three together, and together they could have done anything. Julius Caesar used his greatness in battle as a way for him to gain popularity within the Roman population. Julius Caesar was a Roman
Military issues were those of the problematic situation of expanding borders, barbarian knowledge of military tactics, and the resulting end in loss of control over the Empire. The economic problem included the constant cost of an ever expanding army resulting in inflation and raised taxes. Thus, political, military, and economic issues were chiefly responsible for the fall of Rome. Starting with the political side of things, the Emperor
