I would not help. I was sent to rule this part of the kingdom, not that part. It would be nice for me to help, but I have my own kingdom to rule. They should've been more careful.
I agree with you Abby, Diocletion didn't split the Empire for no apparent reason. He did that so both halves of the Empire would have defending themselves much easier. So, if I were emperor, I would feel bad, but it was their own fault.
I agree with Abby. The Western Empire should have been more careful and been more prepared for attacks at anytime.
I agree with Abby bacause it's not my part of the kingdom so I don't have to look out for it. Also, I would have to help the kingdom that I was in not other kingdoms
I say you are wrong because what if your family or freiends are in that part of the empire. So in other words you are saying "Oh they don't need help the other side can protect them." I would at least send a small army of good warriors. Either way it is your choice, not mine.
I would want to help, but it wouldn't be my job to do so. My job is to rule on side of the Empire. But I would at least send some resources and soldiers so they can have a little more defense. But other wise, the ruler of that side of the Empire should've taken matters into his own hands. Then maybe, the Western half would still be here.
I disagree. I doubt that the ruler of the western empire could have done much. They wouldn't have enough of the resources to take action. Even if you did send somethings to help they were already on the path to its downfall.
I agree with Isabella. I think that the soldiers would be wasted on an empire that was almost gone/dead/defeated already. I would want to help though, but it probably would not have been possible to save them. I also agree with Julia when she says that the ruler of that side should have taken matters into his own hands. It was his responsibility, and he failed, destroying his empire.
I agree with you. We were sent to rule this part of the empire. They made a mistake fighting and this is the consequence
In my opinion, I would not help out the Western Empire even though I would want to help. I think this because it isn't my job to rule the Western Empire since I would have the Eastern Empire to watch over. Plus, if I helped the Western Empire, the Eastern Empire would be free to attack. That is why I would not help out the Western Empire.
I would not help the Western Roman Empire even though I would want to help. I mean it wasn't my fault that the Western part is failing and it was not my idea to split Rome in half.I would prepare the army on my half for any attackers that could come instead of helping. Also, if I help, who is going to watch the Eastern half of Rome? This is why I would not help.
I agree with Riley because, they should be able to find solutions to their own problems. Also they are now their own empire with different problems then the eastern side.
I would not help them, because it is their own responsibility to take care of their part of the empire. Also I would not help them because they should find their own was to fight and make money. I might has given them a few tips and tricks to help them, but other than that I would not help the other side of the empire.
I agree with you Maddie. It is their own responsibility to take care of their side of the empire. Also, giving them a little help is good too, like the tips and tricks, just not like your whole army.
I would not have helped because it wasn't my territory. Also, u wouldn't want to waste my troops. If I used my troops and then I got attacked my land would be taken over
Although we might make some money sending our troops to help them, we would have less defense to defend ourselves. To be honest we would just be making more enemies fighting along side of the other Rome.
I agree with Kyle why should we help it is there territory. We can't lose troops helping someone that can't even pay us back . Also we would have no troops to protect the west part of Rome and all of our riches could be stolen.
I agree, because the east side is my territory. Plus, if you waste your troops to help the west that mean you are losing your troops that were defending the your territory.
I agree because less troops on your side would lead you to get taken over. Also extra resources would be used to prepare troops to fight.
I wouldn't help them simply because then my part of the empire would have to give up some of its defense to help the other side. After all if you were the ruler at that time, your side of the empire would be your first priority. I wouldn't hesitate to make the decision that would be best for my empire.
Agreed. It would be a bad move to send our soldiers to fight because that would make us in a pickle, which could cause us to be attacked, resulting in us being conquered.
I agree. It would either spread the border to thin or put a hole in the border. Also it's not my land to defend.
To be honest, I would probably never help fight off armies that are attacking another Empire. I mean, why should I? What is in it for me? Nothing. It would be a huge waste of time, money, and people to fight along someone. Sure Western Rome might pay us to help, but their economy is horrible.
I would have helped the Western Roman Empire because if I don't those armies might come to attach my part of the Roman Empire.Also,mostlikely I probably would not have as much Soldiers to fight if I don't try to help the Western Roman Empire out.Mostlikely their will be one day that the Western Roman Empire will help out the Eastern Roman Empire if we have a problem
I would not help because I don't have to help them. I rule the west not the east. If I did there could be a chance we got attacked when we leave and then there would be no army to stop them
Exactly why risk your empire to rescue another because what if some bad guys came and knocked on your door to kill you (the emperor) and take over your empire because you they know you don't have enough troops.
I would not help them because it would spread my borders to thin or put a hole in my border. It would cost to much and I would lose to many soldiers. I would not help the other side.
I agree with Nathan, the troops costing the western side would be tremendous. This would put a hole in the border. They would need to expand it within the eastern side. It would all be bad if this instead happened because history needs to happen or the future in reality will change.
I agree with Nathan C because the kingdom would be to big and then enemies could get into you're kingdom. Also you have soldiers going to the other kingdom, but you could lose them.
I agree with Nathan because you don't have a lot of army only have a small amount of people.
I wouldn't have helped the Western Roman Empire. It would be a complete risk that the Western Roman Empire could be overrun easier. The supplies of the western empire would also shorten faster. The Eastern Roman Empire was unable to do trade like the western side. This made deep risk when giving supplies because they would ask for a bunch. This is because the eastern side would use them, ask for more and repeat so many times, both side could've even fallen at the time due to this.
I would not help at all maybe send a legion, but that's it because I would know that it would fall before us because of them hiring mercenaries. I mean really why not just force everyone to join the military except important farmers.
I would not help the west because I rule the east side only. Plus it is my job to help the east side only when it is my duty to rule it. I say it is their responsibility of taking care of the west than me helping them.
I totally agree with you Jason because was I named ruler of the West? No. It is not my problem that the other half of the empire is getting attacked. It is up to them to stop the opposition.
I would not help the western part because the armies attacking could attack the eastern part too. If the eastern part did help, they are very weak in their army. Also their is a reason why Rome split into two.
I would not have helped the western part of Rome because I have my own responsibilities for my kingdom and they should have been ready. I have to defend my own kingdom not somebody else's. I have been chosen to rule my kingdom not their kingdom.
I would send over a small army to help but I wouldn't send my entire army because if they are defeated then we would have no army to fight for our side. The reason I would help is because I have pitty for the the other side of the empire. For example if a baseball team had a lot of really good players and they were going to help another team that isn't so good, then you would give them a couple good players, not all of the best players, because then they would lose a lot more.
No.Why because the Byzantine empire lasted longer than the Roman Empire.Also that they had the best army and emperor that is why they lasted 1,000 more years
I know this sounds selfish and all but... I would not have helped because first off, I knew that my civilization is thriving. Another reason why I would not help is what if somebody else started attacking the Eastern portion of the Empire? Then the whole empire will fall. I would stay there to help make sure that the East still stands. Even if you go to the West to help, your army doesn't stand a chance against several other armies. I would stay put where I am.
How was your civilization thriving? Was the money saved for weapons, or is the population growing? I need you to explain to me more.
I would've helped out the western empire because I wouldn't want to be selfish. Being selfish is not the right thing to do. Personally, I would've given some money to the western empire to pay for the weapons. Also, I would send some troops in to protect the empire. This is what I would've done.
I wouldn't help them. My territory would lose part of the army to go fight for the west. The priority wouldn't be the west it would be my own territorry.
