Roman Timeline 5th Century AD
Oct 25, 2004
The Roman Timeline 5th Century AD follows the final decline of the Roman state. From the invasions of the Visigoths, to the Vandals and Huns, with brief moments of respite under Stilicho and Aetius, the 5th century spelled the end of the west. The western empire ended finally in 476 AD when the Germanic Odoacer was proclaimed King, and the puppet Emperor Romulus Augustulus was deposed.
