Storyline

Thousand years of glorious empire, rising from Tiber town to political center of the then known (mainly Mediterranean) world, and from republic to absolute monarchy, a formally republican constitution under Caesar's 'divine' heirs. An icon symbol of fittingly monumental size is the Colosseum, theater for bread and games at unprecedented scale and a type of 'microcosm' of the imperial centralism. The basis of Rome's world dominance was the superiority of its legions. One more plausible of countless contradictory theories about the fall of Rome was their decay, as power and wealth bread general decadence so mercenaries from the very Germanic barbarian invader race took the place of citizens which spelled the long-term end, after the spread, persecution and ultimate adoption of Christianity. Constantine the Great consecrated the split of the empire, only the Byzantine east would survive another millennium while the West could only temporize and partially civilize migratory invasion.
