Fall of Rome

The fall of Rome was very devastating. It was an chaotic period. The death of Marcus Aurelius in 180 A.D. was very tragic. Aurelius was an exceptional leader. He was one of the good five emperors. The political turmoil was even worse, emperor after emperor. Generals fought for power. Also, in one 50-year period there were 26 years. It was years and years of chaos.

Examples of the impact.
