  • Eastern Empire
  • By the second century the Emperor Hadrion was forced to build his famous wall in Britain to keep the enemy at bay.
  • Being a emperor had always been a particularity dangerous job, but during the second and third century it nearly became a death sentence. 
  • In conclusion the fall of Rome was caused by many reasons in different times and ways. Soon they all built up and Rome officially collapsed. People lost their lives and couldn't fight anymore, they were invaded and taken over.
