  • Reasons why the Roman Empire fell
  • The roman empire lasted for 1,000 years, but as it started to grow, it became more difficult to maintain. For this reason, it ended up falling. These are the reason why:
  • The first reason the roman empire fell was because a gap started to rapidly grow between the rich and poor. This made the rich able to boss the poor around. The rich decided that they wanted to leave, to avoid high taxes, leaving the empire moneyless.
  • The second reason the roman empire fell was because citizens and subjects of the empire started to trust military generals and leaders more than the emperor himself. Since most never even saw the emperor, they had no reason to follow him, instead of local leaders.
  • Reasons why the Roman Empire fell
  • The 9th reason the Roman empire fell was because of the breakdown of military loyalty. Since people begin trusting local leaders more than Rome itself, no one wanted to join the army. Rome had to pay people from different places to join the army, but those people just ended up betraying rome, helping the barbarians destroy cities.
  • The 10th reason the Roman empire fell was because of the split between the East and the West. The east was very rich and powerful, and once they divided, the west had no one to lean on financially, making their society crumble.
  • Those were the 10 reasons why the Roman empire fell!Thank you for listening!
