Rome rose, Rome fell...neither happened in a day, neither happened without bloodshed. As the empire teeters, several tribes from several lands invade. The Romans called them all one by name Barbarians.
Some groups sweep in with overwhelming force, others are former subjects plotting rebellion, while others promise alliance and deliver treachery. The Vandals, the Goths, the Huns, the Celts and others come to Rome seeking revenge, land, treasure, power. Over centuries and through the boldness and ingenuity of leaders like Hannibal, Attila, Boudica and Spartacus the greatest empire the world has ever known is brought to its knees.
