"Uchiha NeVann says:"Caeser all the way, rome didn't start to fall until his son took over"No Rome didn't fall until 400 years after his son took over. His son, Octavian (Augustus) started the Golden Age of Pax Romana"
golden age my A55 to me the fall begain when Augustus took over it just took some time for the full affect. Ok, i'll give it to him for mixing inherited traditions and a changed economic, political and social reality, but he merely united them under one person..... himself. trying to make himself a god... pfft how many times has that failed....
but that created four distinct problems. (1) He had to secure the northern frontiers against attack. Civil wars had involved the army and had led to a weakening of the frontiers of the border. (2) The army had grown too large and unmanageable: the army formed a state within a state. (3) The urban population and small farmers had to be helped. (4) His new government had to promote confidence among the senatorial class which was necessary for efficient rule.
