The fall of the Western Roman Empire is one of the problems in the historiography of Late Antiquity, which is based on an investigation into the causes of the elimination of the power of the West Roman emperors. Her research originates from the work of the English historian Edward Gibbon “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.”
The Western empire was undermined by the movement of slaves and colonies from the inside, and barbarian raids constantly disturbed from the outside, which led to its decline. In 410, the Visigoths took Rome, and on September 4, 476, the leader of the Germanic Odoakr forced the last Western Roman emperor Romulus Augustus to abdicate. Thus ended the centuries-old dominion of Rome. This topic haunted many artists, it is very vividly reflected in this picture.
