2PV - RomeFlag
In this TL, at around the time period of a few years before the fall of Rome, a plague develops out of the common cold in Northern Europe around the area of the Germanic tribes. This brings an end to certain tribes such as the Burgundians, Visigoths, Goths, and Franks. Because these kingdoms fall apart, Rome divides peacefully into several different countries. Because Rome divided peacefully, the world did not enter the dark age. People started thinking like Copernicus years before he was born. The idea of Heliocentrism sprouted throughout Europe, and soon colonial ships were sent out in all directions. Gallia sent out the first ships, and found the New World first. Then, the Byzantine Empire, and next Rome colonized the New World


In this TL a cold slowed down the progress of the Germanic tribes. This meant that the Germanic tribes wouldn't conquer Rome at the same time that it does in OTL. Rome splits peacefully a few years later under Rome's last Emperor Julius Nepos. Europe never enters the period of political disorder known as the dark ages and because of this the idea that the earth is round and not just a flat plate emerges earlier. Different countries colonize the new world.
