20 Reviews
"The Roman Empire never ell. Riven by political ambition and internal dissent, thrown into turmoil by rebellion and civil war, it changed and adapted. The balance of power between Constantinopolis in the east and Roma in the west ebbed and flowed, but the Empire survived. The events of the Empire, from the cataclysmic to the mundane, are memorably described by those whose lived through them : the military hero forced to seize his destiny ; the British aristocrat witnessing the bloody destruction of the royal family ; the children who discover the last emperor, and many others are all vividly described. Accomplished and ambitious, Roma Eterna is a brilliant and thought-provoking exploration of more than fifteen hundred years of Roman history.
