When did the Roman Empire begin?

The Roman Empire was the post-Republican period in ancient Rome. It included large territorial holdings in Northern Africa and Western Asia, as well as parts of the Mediterranean Sea. Emperors ruled the empire. Today, many countries are part of the European Union. The Roman Empire continued to grow and prosper until the third century.
The Romans changed military strategy and organisation. As a result of long wars, distinct formations began to emerge. These included the legion, centurion, and century. The earliest records of the Roman Empire are from the first century B.C. After the fall of the Roman Republic, the Empire expanded its territory, and by the third century A.D., Rome had nearly half of the world’s population.
The decline of the Roman civil authority led to the formation of a Christian church. Germanic tribes had long lived along the northern border of the empire.

How long did the roman empire last?

The empire was divided into two parts, the Eastern and Western. During this time, the Western Roman Empire fell first, and the Eastern one fell later. It lasted for two thousand years, but then the Western part of the Empire was ravaged by wars and the Christian religion spread through the empire.
By this time, the Roman Empire was under constant attack from outside forces, and it was experiencing a severe financial crisis. Constant wars and overspending drained the imperial coffers, creating a huge divide between rich and poor. As a result, many of the rich left Rome and set up independent fiefdoms, but this shifted the balance of power. The lack of labor also affected the empire’s prosperity, and the imperial authorities relied on conquered peoples and slaves to keep the city going.
