I THINK THE BIGGEST REASON WHY ROME FELL WAS BECAUSE THEY KEPT HAVING BIG BLOW OUT PARTIES.ALSO HAVING ALL THAT MONEY. AND ALL THE MONEY TO HAVE THE BIG PARTIES.
I agree with you Because they should not be using money for rome and there people. and because of that the soldiers were not so strong
I think the biggest reason Rome fell was it was to big. This large mass of land all in the hands of them was to much. To warn the people of Rome was especially was hard because it was like traveling the country of America on horseback. The population decreased 20 million and there were less soldiers to protect the vast amount of land. Last but not least the western side couldn't afford to pay the amount of soldiers that it would take to guard the borders.
I argee with you Ray I think that it was too big for its own good. The army could not afford to leave there posts to go help another group. The distance was too great for someone to ride on horse back I think that this was the main reason why Rome fell.
I agree with you Ray because since the Population decreased, there were less people to be put in battle. Also, since the Western side could not afford to pay the soldiers, the soldiers might have refused to fight since they aren't getting payed.
I agree with you Ray. Rome was far too big too defend after it lost 20 million people. Also, as a result of the loss of people there were less taxes to run the government.
I agree with you Ray because the population did decrease a lot. I like your word choice as well. Nice job!
I AGREE WITH YOU RAY. ROME COULD HAVE FALLEN BECAUSE IT WAS TO BIG. ROME HAD ALOT OF POWER AND WITH ITS POWER THAT MEANS THERE WAS ALOT OF PEOPLE.
I think the biggest reason why Rome fell was because since it's population was so large it was too hard to maintain all the people living there. It was hard to maintain them because many people wouldn't pay their tax money which meant, people collecting the tax money couldn't pay for food, to build more buildings, etc. Also, I think that Rome was falling was because many soldiers died, which meant the Roman army was weaker, and having the army weak, Rome itself was weak as well because, who's going to protect Rome when they are attacked?
I agree, but disagree with you. Before the famine, and plague, the population would be had to maintain. Only after the famine and plague, it would be great amount easier because of. Therefore, overall I disagree with you more than I agree with you.
I agree with you because these soldiers were dying and that caused a weaker army.Thats were they would hire soldiers that have no loyalty to Rome , and when the battle gets too ruff they could just drop out. Cause they probably would not want to die in battle with the army that their not originaly with.
In my opinion, the greatest reason Rome fell was when they lost 20 million out of their 50 million to plague and famine. This was 40% of their entire population, so about half. With half their population gone, they have far less people in the military to defend their country, so they could easily fall in battle. This relates to the reason that Rome is too big, because with a lot less people , it will be even harder to defend, almost impossible. Another reason is, with far less people, you may not be able to grow crops and farm animals, so agriculture would decrease by a large quantity. I my opinion, all these reasons, being caused by one thing has to be the biggest reason for the decline of Rome.
I agree with everything you said Cooper. The decrease caused a huge decrease in everything, soldiers, farming, and the possibility of guarding Rome. The only increase because of the population decrease was taxes. I think it was cool that you related to another reason.
I agree with you Cooper. The loss of 20 million people made them loss resources. They also could have loss tax money Cooper. Defense was also a good point because the immense size of Rome.
I can see your point, but I disagree with you. Being to large Rome fell majorly. If your saying that decreasing population led to less defense on a large land area than yes I can agree. Your point of view would probably be my second major reason
I think the biggest reson why rome fell is because of its size. it was to hard to send messegas . also if they did not recive the messages then you would not know.
I agree with you. I agree because they could of had a important message and the person they were sending it too could not of got it. Also it takes along time to get across Rome.
The biggest reason I think that Rome fell is that Rome was too big. I think that because It was to hard to send messages. That was a problem because it would take a long time to get across Rome. Also the message they could of been sending could of been super important and they could of not of got the message. That is why I think Roe fell because of its size.
I agree with you Kyla. Rome was to big for messages to get across it. plus Rome was to big for one person to rule.
I agree with you because Rome conquered a lot of land over Europe and some of Africa. It was really tough for citizens of Rome to send messages and protecte the borders of Rome.
I meant protect
I agree with you Kyla, Rome was too big. It would take too long to get messages across Rome. Also, the person the message was sent to may not have received the message.
I agree with alissia having all those parties would make them have them pay for mercenaries and they don't have loyalty for rome . And if the battle too hard they will flee the seen and let the battle go on. And solders wanted more money but they didn't get it resulting in less solders.
I think the biggest reason why Rome fell was because. It was too big . I think this because It was hard to get a message to someone , since there was no techonology back then. Men would ride horses to send a message . But the not so smart thing about this was that sometimes the men on horses would get stuck in battle and could have been killed and no one would know.
I agree with you Taniya. Rome was way to big so travel and messaging would be difficult. Also controlling Rome was hard to because if the empire sent a message out, don't think it will be shown to every citizen in Rome in a few days.
I think the biggest reason Rome fell was the loss of 20 million people out of the 50 million. This made Rome start to decline heavily. One reason was they lost a lot of tax money. This caused them to not have as much money for soldiers. Plus they weren't even using all there money to help the empire. plus some of the people that died were warriors so that was also a loss of troops.
I think the biggest reason that Rome fell was when Rome was split in half. For a country to work properly all of it must work in harmony. plus Constantine had ho choice, it was ether that or try to one giant empire.
First off Diocletian split Rome. Also I don't think any country can ever ever work in perfect harmony so I don't really like this comment, sorry.
I think the biggest reason why Rome fell was because the emperors had big parties with the tax money. The solders had no money to get the stuff they need to fight so other armies could defeat them easier.
I agree. the solders got less pay so they wouldn't fight as good. In result eventually Rome would fall from the lack of good fighting and determination.
Rome fell because it got too big for itself. Rome was so big that they couldn't communicate from one end of the empire to the other. It had big government with corrupt rulers. It needed too big an army which was spread thin because the empire was so big.
I believe that Rome was just way to big. Even though it was about as big as the USA which was a big problem back in the day. It was a problem because there was no fast messaging, like we have today like, e-mail, social media, phones, etc. So it will take a hour, a day , a week or 2, depending on where you were sending the message. Also it took way to long to travel through Rome. This was a big problem because if there are legions of Rome warriors and there are only about a hundred warriors left, don't think that another platoon of warriors because they may be about 3 miles away. This is why I believe Rome fell.
I think that the biggest reason why Rome fell was simply because it was to big. It was hard to govern and defend. it took to long to communicate, it could be too late by the time they were notified. This also means that if Rome was that big they need a lot of money to defend. Which means raising taxes, then citizens refusing to pay and not enough money.
I think the biggest reason Rome fell is the Roman army trying to protect the borders of there land. Another reason I think Rome fell is because the emperors using tax money for party's. The last reason I think Rome fell because too many bad emperors did not get revolted against the citizens.
I think the biggest reason why Rome fell was because Rome was too big. Rome was too big to govern and communicate. When the emperors sent messages they would have no idea if the message got there because the messenger could have been lost or captured.
I agree with you Autumn. Rome grew to large to govern and it was to hard to communicate. Rome was vulnerable because information could not get from one place to another.
I agree with Autumn because you wouldn't know if they got the message because something could have happened to the messenger. It was very hard for Rome because it kept growing in size, with the population also growing.
I think the biggest reason why Rome fell was when Rome defeated every one around them, Rome was a city that population grew very fast. How because instead of killing the people they have defeated they would say live in are city believe in what we believe in and we will believe what you believe in. So most people did not want to die so they believed in the Roman beliefs and the Romans believed in the other peoples realign. So how was this a bad thing? well since the people that were not really a part of Rome lived outside the city they could really rom where ever they wanted. So the Romans had lese army, lese slaves, and lese farmers. Soon after the patrician's found out about this Rome fell patrician's had meager parties the money came from the taxes that where outrages which is another reason why Rome fell. Also When Rome tried to send a message to anyone outside of Rome they would ride horses and they rider would go about 50 miles they leave that horse then get on another one and drive 50 miles till they reached their place. What was wrong about that?t was they would get the horses so tried and they were wasting to many horses. So that is why Rome fell.
I think the biggest reason Rome fell was becauseof it's size. Rome was huge and hard to govern communication was difficult. The size of Rome was challenging if one part of Rome was being attacked I wonder how long it would take for the other side of Rome to find out.
Like you said communication would be hard so that would make trade hard to and that is another big reason.
I agree with Mia because rome was to big and pepole could not know what is happening in trough out rome. so that is why i agree with mia .
Their are a lot of reasons why Rome fell but this is the one I think was the biggest. Rome was way too big. People can infiltrate Rome easily because The week solders would not be able to protect the big land. The solders would miss parts of the land and the enemy would be able to sneak in easily. so that was the biggest reason in my mind.
I think the biggest reason why Rome fell was because of its size. It was to big for its own good. This was a big reason because if they needed to send a message it would take weeks or months to get there and you wouldn't even know if they got the message. I think another part of the size is that the soldiers couldn't defend every part of Rome it would be easy to attack Rome piece by piece.
I think the biggest reason Rome fell was because it was too large in size. It was harder to communicate because it would take forever to get messages to where they wanted it to go and they wouldn't even know if they got the message. Also, the soldiers could only cover the borders and not the inside.
