The Western Roman Empire fell in 476 AD. There were many factors that went into the fall of the Roman Empire. Economic problems they dealt with was one of the main reasons the Empire fell. Since the romans were not doing good Economically they could not fund the military in order to protect them, which also led to the fall of their military. Socio-Political problems were also a factor; there was a decline in interest to public affairs.
The Crusades even caused the relationship between Jews and Muslims to worsen. The Crusaders acts were also negative because they didn’t just destroy cities and communities, they also destroyed empires. The Crusades caused so much destruction to cities and communities, and also cost many innocent lives lost. They even fought for no reason, but to take their fury out!
At this point the town was in shambles. The first European town in the Americas was a failure. This was due to poor administration and a general lack of interest in settling. The lack of motivation to properly harvest and tend gardens left the Spaniards desperate for food.
The political impact of the “barbarians” on the Roman Empire was that it weakened the empire’s government. Revenue loss made the administration unable to afford enough soldiers to control their borders. When the Huns attacked, a great influx of Germanic people migrated to the empire without any resistance. After Attila died the Huns were no more. The non-Romans who lived inside the empire shocked the world when they rebelled against the greedy Romans who had severely mistreated them.
With all of these soul-shattering, life-changing conditions, it is less of a war and more of a test of strength for the soldiers, here at Valley Forge. Some men were going home and not returning. Other men just completely deserted. Even George Washington’s position was uncertain, the members of congress didn’t trust him. Life at Valley Forge was obviously horrible, and the ugly truth is that it wouldn’t get much better.
The Assyrians held a huge obsession with war and because of this, many casualties resulted leading to their downfall. Due to the many causalities, their numbers begin to dwindle and outsiders began to see this as an opputunity to attack and take over. In the end, they were in such a weakened state that, they eventually were defeated by the people of Babylon and they were no longer an independent state. The Persian empire came to power with the help of a powerful leader.
The crusades affected trade in Europe. The way trade got affected was the bad causes that came because of the crusades. During one of the crusade wars, Europe 's good were affected during the wars, because after them, the were running low on merchandise and products. So not only was this bad for merchants, but it was bad for the townspeople, because they need resources. It also affected Europe in another way.
The major problems that needed to be removed from the society during that period were Drunkenness, ignorance and inequality among the population. There were a racial and gender differences and the women, African Americans and Native Americans were not allowed to participate in political programs.

Although the intention of the Articles of Confederation was to create a stable government for the 13 colonies, it was sadly designed poorly resulting in an overall ineffective government. The Articles may have been rewarded with some success with respect to western lands, but the overall effect was negative, especially the economic conditions. The economic conditions were primarily the most negative aspect of the Articles of Confederation. The inability to tax settlers caused the federal government to have a serious shortfall in revenue, and the restriction to regulate trade added to the chaos.
Poverty in Europe from 1450 to 1700 was a huge issue that stuck around for centuries. The wars that took place during this time always seemed to negatively affect the poor the most. The poor, consisting of the majority of the European population, was never taken into consideration during these wars which is ironic considering these wars were caused in the name of religion. This situation, combined with weak leadership and in many countries a heavy taxation system, such as those found in England under the leadership of James I and his son Charles I, or under the leadership of absolute monarchs like Louis XIV, prevented the poor from rising in social status. The way people regarded “the poor” in Europe from 1450-1700 differed significantly based

Manifest Destiny led to these beliefs because of the Americans concept of expanding westward. According to a source, there was a plague that had killed 90% of Native Americans before Christopher Columbus arrived to North America. Native Americans populations already faced a drastic decline, with the Europeans diseases and expansion
They both fell from similar reasons although there was some differences. One similarity in Han China and Rome was that they were invaded constantly. The Han were invaded by the Xiongnu, the Kazakhs, and Mongols. Emperors in Han china offered the Xiongnu many items in return for peace but they didn 't have enough to pay everyone!Eventually the Han ended the Xiongnu but it came at a price. They had little money left over which put the government into turmoil.
Besides the goths, there were many reasons western Rome fell, from crippling taxation, military failures to climate change and natural disaster. Government corruption and political instability were also major factors of the fall of western Rome. The goths attacked Rome when they were weak, while their army was weak, whilst the government was corrupted and Rome was focusing on itself and not on the threat of the goths. The Roman Empire is argued to have fell in 476 AD, due to the Eastern Empire still hadn’t fell until 476
