It deals with the division of the empire by Theodosius I and the rule of his successors Honorius and Arcadius. Honorius' reign saw Britannia leave the empire and the first sack of Rome in about 800 years. The borders of the empire continued to weaken under his successors in the west as the East held on in the face of barbarian groups like the Huns or the Vandals. In the end, the Western Roman Empire would disappear in 476 ushering in a new age of smaller kingdoms in Europe. Recommended books: Chris Wickham - The Inheritance of Rome. Phenomenal book which covers the decline of the Roman Empire in the west (and also the East) and details what happened in the aftermath of its fall. Peter Brown - The World of Late Antiquity. One of the classics surrounding the period. Be aware that it is starting to show its age but frankly there aren't loads of great introductory overview materials like this for the period so it's still very valuable.

Thanks for using BC and AD instead of the woke BCE and ACE.

How often do you think of the fall of the Roman Empire?

Anytime there was a great Empire, there were People both within and outside the Empire who either wanted Power to control that Empire, or completely destroy the Empire itself.
This was true for the Roman Empire, this was true for the Macedonian Empire, this was true for the Mongol Empire, and this is true currently for the American Empire. Power attracts some of the worst types of People in the World, Power corrupts, and absolute Power corrupts absolutely.

No Empire has withstood the test of time. Eventually, all Empires come to an end, as great as they might have been.

The Roman Empire had 60 million people in the middle of the 2nd century. It was the plagues and civil wars that shrank the population to 40 million.

Hot opinion: Rome would be better unsplit.

How can Rome be saved?

Should it?

There are two main and clear issues that harm the West in the eyes of Chinese Scholars.

1) The lack of a continuous system. It doesn't have to maintain the same language like the Chinese, preferrably it did not. And it doesn't have to be identified as the same Empire throughout its continuous existence similar to Rome and Byzantium.

2) This sort of did happen, but not to extent it should have and that is a continuous cycle of falls and rises that ultimately lead to a surplus gain rather than deficit or status quo. This observation has been more noted by Chinese Scholars in Taiwan than in the Mainland, since acknowledgement of this would require the CCP to fall at some point. So you can see why this isn't promoted in the mainland. There have been notable collapses in the West with the Bronze Age Collapse (which some argue doesn't even concern the west, but ummm... Islamic Civilization and Orthodox Civilization are not civilizations, neither is Western Civilization, but Western makes more sense as it covers Western Paleogaia or Afroeurasia and those three are just branches of that civilization, along with India due to interconnectivity between Sumer and the Indus Valley), Rome, and the Balkan Collapse (which we are still going through) .

“He died… of being murdered.” Has the same vibes as Scary Movie 4’s “He suffered a heart attack, brought upon by this knife.”

I think the vandals caused the invention of the word vandal

Notice how those days Christian Egypt were capable of feeding its own population, and still export to Europe..
Wonder what happened in the mean time 🤔

They are still here and went into space. Rome became the Roman church before the Holy Roman Empire. Today they are all over the world calling the rest of us slaves for we sit here line morons calling each other crazy when we try to talk about the technology Rome has today. Rome has colonized this solar system while we argue about whether to take care of each other or keep letting idiots tax us to death and lose the money

Interesting that back then Germanic peoples were considered barbarians when nowadays the Germanic world is arguably the most prosperous in the planet
