The western Rome fell is because they didn't had a lot of people in the army to defend the border, people leaving their post, and low on resources.
I disagree with Gavin because I perosnally think western Rome fell because of the charcter and leaders. Rome as a whole felt they were unstoppable and when they were beat people started to stop seeing Rome as a threat.
Yes I agree with Ena. When people no longer saw Rome as a threat people tried to invade and lots of them succeeded!
I agree with Ena because if they had better leaders they wouldn't of fallen so early. If they worked together they would have been able to defeat their enemies.
I agree with Ena. Rome started to get big heads and it cost them.
that's true ena because they rulers were getting murdered
I agree with you Gavin. The western part did fall because of the lack of Soldiers.
I think Western Rome fell because instead of taking care of Rome as a whole they split it up and one side was wealthier than others. For example what if the U. S we split up into the East and the West? Sooner or later another country will find our weakness. Not just that unlike Rome people have more greed and will try to get more power than they should have in the government. That greed will sooner or alter cause another civilwar. Rome also fell because it seemed like they cared for the east more than the west.
Yes I agree with you Ena. I say this because the leaders split Rome iin half which can weaken Rome. Also, the leaders didn't quit help with some situations in Rome.
I think the biggest reason was that there was bad leadership. Not all the emperors were bad but a lot of them were. They were evil, insane, or a thief!
I totally agree with you Cloie! If Rome had half the bad leaders be good leaders they would have been a great country for many more years.
I believe that the western part of Rome fell because of the lack of Soldiers at their posts. But this happened because of the split empire and the battle for more land between the seprate leaders of western rome.
I agree with the part that relates to the military, but disagree that it was the lack of soldiers. I believe it was just the poorly designed system that Western Rome created, having their soldiers at the borders. But this also does tie into the amount of soldiers, because if they would've had more soldiers they could've fortified the borders better, like if someone left there post they could immediately spare a soldier to take that persons post.
The western part of Rome fell because of how they separated Rome in half. That causes, Rome to not work together to be stronger. Also, the leaders have a big impact on this also.
I agree with Chloe. If Rome wasn't split up neither part would have fell. So since they did one half has more money, soldiers, and resources
In my opinion, western Rome fell because Rome in General was too big. The majority of the currency was kept on the Eastern half and was not distributed properly. Leaving the Western half unable to pay off invaders.
Gracie, this is completely true. Rome was huge and since all of the trade was coming in from the east, western Rome had barely any resources. So when they were being attacked, western Rome was sure to be eradicated. Nice point :)
I dissagre with that jack because it was all the problem with them
I think that western Rome fell because of the lack of fighters inside of Rome. Yes they did have very high protection on the borders but when the roman's armys' fight each other it opens up a gab in the defence.That was a minor problem, the major problem was roman's bad leaders. When they found out there was a gap in the army, they would take all the money and think about them selves, not the rest of Rome.
I agree because Rome didn't have enough soldiers for how massive Rome was. The lack of soldiers was a big reason why Rome fell. Also Rome was too big, it was getting out of control. It was not a good idea to send all the invaders west because they came to the East. I think the Romans should have sent all the invaders into Asia or northern Europe.
I agree because there were so many civil wars going on in Rome, invaders could easily sneak into Rome without soldiers noticing. Then they could take over Rome with no one there to stop them because of bad inner defense.
I agree Nick and also I would like to add that when the Eastern fell people had ideas that Rome was completely weak and everyone started to attack. They also were very greedy and took solders for themselves.
I think that the biggest reason that Western Rome fell was because it didn't have as many resources in general. Eastern Rome had more resources due to the Silk Road being right next to it. Also, Western Rome in my opinion fell due to the border not being protected because it didn't have as many soldiers. Since one troop invaded all of them knew that Rome wasn't as strong. Due to that everyone started invading Rome but the Eastern empire wasn't affected that much because it had resources to send the people to the West. That didn't help Rome a bit even though it helped the East part of the Empire.
I agree with Dhwani because the lack of resources and how they moved them to different places.
I agree with Dhwani because there resources were failing by the people not keeping everything stable.
I think Rome fell because there sources started to fall apart people started to not listen to the emperors and Rome did not have a huge amount of a army when time went on so Rome was falling.so my reason that a big reason they are falling is no respect and resources failing
i agree with dhwani because there resources were falling,there not that stable
I think that the biggest reason the empire fell was because they had very little money to defend themselves, and because the Eastern part of the empire surrounded the western part on one side, and water was on the another side, it would have been harder to see people coming. Money was an issue because they couldn't pay soldiers to continue fighting, and they couldn't pay the amounts needed to keep out the invaders. Having some of the land surrounded by water was both good and bad. It was good because it kept invaders from coming in that way, but it was bad because invaders could come in powerfully on the two remaining sides and western Rome would be surrounded.
I totally agree with Sarah. Western Rome would not have fell if it had as much money as Eastern Rome. Western Rome would have been able to pay the invaders to go more north, west, south. I think that the Eastern part of Rome shouldn't have sent all the invaders to the west, that in general was there biggest mistake. I think they should have known that sending them to the west was a bad idea but unfortunately, they did not think about the other half of the empire when sending the invaders to the Western part of Rome.
I agree with Sarah totally because Rome did have little money. Little money = troops not getting paid. Troops not getting paid = invaders cumming in and killing everything thing
I think the biggest reason the Western part of Rome fell was because the leaders had a disagreement. The disagreement led to Rome being split to Eastern and Western Rome. The Eastern are rich unlike the Western so they had money to pay the soldiers to continue fighting and had money to pay the invaders to keep off their land.
The biggest reason the western half of Rome fell, in my opinion, is how they set up their army. They had all their troops stationed on the outskirts of their territory. I believe that they would of survived a little longer if they stationed their troops scattered and not just on the outskirts.
The biggest reason that the western Roman Empire fell was that the Eastern fell. With little defences left and money very low they are vulnerable. To others they were strong but with the Eastern falling cant the Western fall as well, so one by one there enemies attacked. Weakening Rome until it was finished.
The biggest reason the western half of Rome fell was because of the leaders. The leaders had one half stronger than the other so an enemy troop could get inside the eastern half. Also, the eastern half and western half did not work together, if they worked together they could've lasted longer
I agree withJulian because western rome had lost a ton of empeorors and never had a staple empeor.
I think in the late fourth century the western rome epire fell because of military failers. also crippling taxations.
I think one of the major reasons why Western Rome fell is because of its security flaws. How they positioned their soldiers (on the border) wasn't the best thing to do, as if one soldier left their post, someone could slip in and wreak havoc inside. It would've been smarter if they had a patrol system where soldiers would patrol the country in large numbers.
I agree with Niko that the soldiers left their post and invaders slipped in. I am pretty sure that they left their post to try and gain power.
I believe that western Rome fell because they where not wealthy. Also, the people would kill each other so they could become ruler. That made chaos in Rome so enemies could easily invade.
I think rome fell because soilders were leaving post to help attack with other fights. Then people came and deystoyed rome.
Rome fell because they lost a lot of soldier which meant no was there to fight there battles. It also fell because the money supplies was very low. Plus they were fought by other people one by one.
rome fell because there where to many promblems with everybody with all the murders and wars they had. and they kept killing all our emperoires and it all got messed up bye fellow romeas around there
I think the reason why the western part fell is because they didn't have money to build deference. another reason is because they had the weaker part of the empire.
