Medieval Europe

In 476 the Roman Empire fell. One reason for this was its size which was massive and almost impossible to defend. This was due to the fact that many of the soldiers were not local soldiers with very little loyalty.Another reason was that in Rome there was an issue of passing on power peacefully. People fought for power and had no good system for picking a future leader.Lastly, since Rome was so big there was trouble financing and being able to afford the massive amount of soldiers needed to defend the land.
