We shall become loyal to the barbarians! They will take care of us.
Don't you know what this means?! We can leave!
Why are you so happy?
Some of the Romans were being taken advantage of by their leaders, so the barbarians offered the Romans a deal that if they would share the land with them then they would take care of them. The Romans excepted the deal.
Where are the OTHER SLAVES??
After Rome was "settled down" after the war, the the Romans and army began to not want to fight anymore and were more worried about themselves and having a good time.
So.... look at what I bought!!
Ummm sir.... the people need to be payed and we have ran out of water
When no one wanted to defend Rome anymore the Barbarians took this as a perfect chance to go and attack Rome. And that's what they did.
In Rome there was a decline in workforce. As the slaves had more pressure put on them, the death rate became very high for slaves and they did not have anyone to work for them.
Rome also fell because of economic decline. There was not enough money to pay for there army and government. There was too much money that was spent in luxury goods and riches.
