ClassBrain Visitor:


What year was the City of Rome conquered?


ClassBrain Response:

During the time of the Roman Empire the City of Rome was conquered by the Visigoth Odoacer and his men in the year AD 476. Prior to that the Roman empire was overrun by the mass immigration of barbarians from the north and east of Europe. The Roman Armies were designed to defeat other armies not huge migrations of people. However the "Fall of Rome" did not mean the end of the Roman Empire. The Eastern Empire which was run from the city of Constantinople lasted almost another thousand years until it was eventually conquered by the Turks in the year AD 1453.
