Ancient Rome: Ancient Egypt, Greek and German history: How an ancient Greek city survived the end of the Roman Empire
The world’s ancient cities have come to represent everything from the glories of the Greeks and Romans to the chaos of the Middle Ages.
But the Roman era came to an end when, in 49 BC, Rome was overthrown by the forces of Julius Caesar and the Germanic tribes.
As the Roman Republic was overthrowing itself, the Roman world collapsed.
Today, the world’s oldest cities are on the rise.
With the advent of the Internet, the history of these places can be recreated, making them available to students and visitors alike.
But when it comes to the future of ancient Rome, the story of the city’s rise and fall is as complicated as its history.
What made Rome flourish?
What brought it down?
Who was the first ruler?
And how does history change over time?
Today, historians have a better idea of what made Rome great, and the story behind its demise.
We asked experts to tell us about the city that became the world we know today.
What makes Rome great?
The Roman world, and its capital, Rome, was founded in the first century B.C. by a people who believed that it was the capital of the world.
In fact, the Romans were the first people to have a written language.
But what really made Rome the world-famous capital of antiquity is its sheer size.
The city stood more than 2,500 kilometres (1,500 miles) tall and had a population of more than seven million people.
It was built over a vast expanse of desert, with an area the size of Germany.
Roman culture and architecture, including its monumental churches and monumental temples, are the envy of the modern world.
The ancient Greeks also built a city that was larger than even Athens.
In the 3rd century BC, the Greek city of Samos was discovered, with a population nearly three times that of Rome.
Around the same time, an Egyptian ruler, Thutmose III, built a great city in the Sinai Desert called Alexandria, which is the largest ancient city on the planet today.
After an initial siege, Thutmos III died and his son, Thoth, was proclaimed king.
In Egypt, Thuthom II founded the kingdom of the Thracians in the west.
The Romans, on the other hand, founded their first city, a small settlement on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, called Carthage.
Carthage was a relatively small city, with only 10,000 inhabitants in its heyday, and it soon fell into disrepair.
In 13 CE, the Carthaginians captured Rome and put the city under their rule.
The great Carthaginian leader, Julius Caesar, became famous for his ruthless rule.
After the fall of Carthage, Julius and his legions marched to Rome, but Caesar’s army was defeated.
Caesar’s armies were then surrounded and slaughtered by the Roman army.
After the death of Caesar, Julius’ son, Julius Cæsar, took the leadership of the newly-formed Roman Empire.
Cæstar, who was born in Egypt, became one of the founding fathers of the Greek and Roman world.
He and his brother, Cleopatra, founded a city-state called Thebes, which today stands in the Aegean Sea.
With the Romans’ fall, the power and prestige of Rome fell to a new generation of rulers.
By the time of the French Revolution, the French monarchy was established in Paris, and Napoleon III was on the throne.
But it was a power vacuum, and a revolt broke out in France against the old monarchy.
This was the end for the French and the French-speaking world.
The power vacuum gave rise to the modern nation-state, and in 1793, France declared independence from Britain.
How did Rome fall?
Rome’s decline began when the Romans invaded the country and conquered it, and by the mid-19th century, it was completely in ruins.
Rome was destroyed by World War I and World War II.
A few years later, in the early 1940s, the Nazis took over Rome and annexed it as the Nazi Germany.
By that time, the city was on fire and had no water.
A few days after the Nazis captured Rome, it collapsed, trapping many people under the rubble.
The Germans also destroyed the city by bombing it with napalm, destroying most of the buildings and killing many of the residents.
By 1945, the Germans had conquered all of Europe and annexed most of what remained of it.
They were the last major power in Europe to control a large area of territory, and they did so by invading and conquering the city.
The end of Roman history was inevitable, and Rome came to be known as the Roman Capital.
In the 1960s, many people thought that Rome was in an irreversible state of decline
