Storyboard Text

  • I am a barbarian and Rome will fall!
  • OMG! Barbarians are here!
  • Ok time to leave the city. BYE!
  • We will become the Byzantine Empire.
  • Although I am in the Roman Military, I am not loyal to the Empire!
  • Nonsense!
  • Rome was invaded by barbarians several times but fell in 476 CE. This caused Emperor Augustus to flee Rome after less than a year of ruling the empire.
  • I'm an old man and I cannot afford this!
  • This tax is too much
  • Despite the fall of the capital, the Eastern Roman Empire survived and eventually became the Byzantine Empire which took inspiration from Rome and Greece.
  • My Team is better!!
  • Many of the Roman Empire's army was not filled with romans but rather gauls and germans who only served their commander, not the empire. This created a disturbance in the military and a sense of disloyalty.
  • Bye!
  • The Romans also had an increased tax which was mainly for the military. The tax decreased the wealth of the wealthy and made the poor poorer.
  • Riots often broke out in Rome due to sports and politics. One such riot killed around 30,000 people
  • That is four reason to why Rome may have fallen. I guess this is goodbye then.
