The Expansion and Emperors During the Old B.C.s[]

During 1300 B.C., tribes from Europe settled on Italy. As they learned how to farm and domesticate animals, they started to grow their civilization. In 900 B.C., they started to invade all of Italy. They had fought many tribes and learned many civilizations in. As they did, they started to adopt 75 cultures and made their empire in 601 B.C. The first emperor, Marious, invaded Europe, Greenland, and Russia. He built a city called Rome, and built magnificent buildings there. By his death, it became the most enormous, magnificent, splendid, wealthiest, fortified, and the greatest city in the world. His son, Commodous, started to invade Central Asia, Mongolia, Japan, and Korea. He believed the animals (except seafood and livestock) were the messenger of the gods, so he banned hunting them. Under him, he reached the city of Rome to its greatest extent. His successor, Julius Caesar, invaded China, Southern East Asia, Bangladesh, and India. He then invaded all of the remaining areas of Asia, the Pacific, and discovered the Americas. When he died, his nephew, Octivain, became emperor. He took the title Augustus and invaded the Americas. Under him, he allowed citizens to go to the baths, theaters, amphitheaters, and circuses for free. he also gave many rights to plebeians. He built Augustus's Market, which is on water and is where you could get seafood. At his death, his successor, Tiberiaias ordered gardens and huge cities to be built. He created the Praetorian guard, fire brigade, and many services to give money and food to the poor. Under him, he built a library called the Library of Hispania. Tiberiaias's brother, Galagiatia, increased the entire economy and had many schools, universities, libraries, laboratories, and researching institutes built. Galagiata ordered irrigation machines to be built, turning deserts, into fertile green lands. In 45 B.C., after his reign, his younger brother, Trajas, became emperor. Under him, he invaded Egypt and Kush and was remembered for his capture of empress Cleopatra (but made her his wife), which now, the Romans had their first country at Africa. He built zoos so many people could learn about animals. Trajas built an orthodox-style temple and made an introduce to one god, God. He called this monotheism, and ordered the Bible to be made. In 20 B.C., he ordered elephants to be a type of transportation. Many Romans disliked this, but was later suitable and comfortable to ride on. He discovered the Fountain of Youth and was heavily guarded by the Praetorian Guard and could make wishes, cure all diseases, and (no one has tried that yet) get internal life. By 10 B.C., he died. and his son, Remus Alagathouis to be emperor. Under him, he built the twelve tables, which show the Roman laws. Alagathousis designed trade routes where merchants could go. During his start of his rule, the huge temple of Jerusalem Marious planned was built. under him, he expanded the empire to the borders of modern-Egypt, Sudan, East Africa, Madagascar and its near-by islands, and Southerns and Central Africa. Alagathousis made peace and never expanded further. Soon, 5 years later in his reign, something happened...

Pax Romana from 5 B.C.[]

Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem. According to today's Bible, Jesus was the savior and king. Remus did not like the sound of that, so he ordered all baby boys to be killed, because he did not know which one was Jesus. An angel warned Jesus's parents Mary and Joseph to flee to Alexandria. While they were escaping, an angel fired an arrow of Remus, ending his reign young. When Jesus became a grown man, he taught people about Christianity. During Jesus's life after his toddler age, Vespaccia became emperor. Under him, he was frightened that Jesus threatened their one-god religion, so two years later, he was crucified. Under him, he wanted to get rid of the Christians, so he order many punishments, crucifixion on the cross became the symbol of Christianity. Vespaccia ordered many orthodox churches built when he gave up get riding of the Christians. Orthodox Christianity became the religion of the empire later.After his death, a Jew, named Herod, ordered a temple like the one in Jerusalem. Herod built a chain of roads on bridges decorated with columns and arches. Herod built a fleet of ships called the Water brigade to take down sea pirates. Herod later built Pisidia at the Roman West province of Cappadocia and Manzikert to be built at modern Armenia. In 45 A.D., Aquelaia became emperor. He built a lot of forts everywhere, and created humongous terrace farms in the Plateau of Tibet. Aquelaia had a city built called Venicula (on present-day Venice) to be built. Venicula had a series of canals, and the people needed to find a way over them, so bridges were built. More and more buildings went on water and Venicula later became a rich and wealthy port. After his death, a soldier named Cassius became emperor. Cassius was the first soldier to became emperor in 85 A.D. Under him, he wanted more soldiers in his empire, so he ordered taxes to be collected, and in 90 A.D., he said It's enough soldiers know." Under him, he allowed provincials to have rights as citizens, but rich citizens and provincials had to pay taxes, poor people did not. Cassius heard that many scientists mad incredibly discoveries. All of modern science had been discovered, and so did much of everything. Mathematics, geography, algebra, navigation, scholarship, architecture, engineering, education, medicine, farming, economy, mining, factories (ancient, not modern!), literature, art, music, and bookmaking also improved and advanced. Recreation had two knew games, polo and chess. Cassius died in 132 A.D., which brought up to a new Pax Romana age.

Ultra-Golden Age of Pax Romana[]

The Ultra-Golden Age began at Cassius's death. More cities were built, and resources became very plentiful. Art and mosaics became super lavish, and alchemy was discovered. As trade and economy increased, and many merchandise ports were built. Technology and inventions had improved. The first patriarch was formed, and the army and navy improved, fast! New methods of building were discovered. Literature became more popular, and bookmaking advanced. Recreation became more advanced and popular. The empire later turned into a rich land by these events. How did this all happen, well let us find out!

Starting form plentiful resources, emperors had made the empire filled with great magnificence. Starting from plentiful resources, the Romans had great supplies of everything. Rich lumber were made in timber farms, when ash magically turn into lumber. Rich timber helps people to build navies, buildings, and great firewood. Timber is very plentiful and supplies well. Food, another resource, had grown rapidly. New food from Asia, Africa, and the Americas crave unknown to the Romans, but can make great recipes. Corn, tomatoes, and other vegetables created great recipes. People later knew how to make cheese and butter which helped advanced in diet. There were more farms than are cities, and they carry food to supply the entire empire. Food was also used to give to the poor as well as money. Seafood had got advanced ways of catching it. Livestock became more healthy from diseases, and food was a lot plentiful. Stone, gems, precious metals, and gold, what do they have in common? Well, you guessed it! There are good building materials, and are very precious. Let us start with stone. Stone are divided to granite, marble, and limestone. This beauty of it is used to build rich houses, villas, baths, and other public buildings. Even concrete is stone, you know why? It helps create massive and humongous buildings. Concrete is mixed by cement, sand, water, and broken stone. gems and gold are next. They are super rich. Gems help decorate the buildings and later became a popular building material, but most of them were enlarged by making wishes from the Fountain of Youth. Gold and other precious metals are popular and extremly rich. It helped the Romans make coins, create treasures, decorate rich buildings, and make wealth. With a lot of treasures, the empire was rich.

More cities were built in this age, creating new ports that are centers of trading, cities and towns that Romans could live there. Every city includes a forum, marketplace, schools, universities, libraries, churches, senate house, theaters, amphitheaters, many baths, and circus. Marketplaces were huge and sometimes had a sqouq, a roof over a market street. Baths were common inside and so are food and money handout offices even cities although they are all farms. The Romans loved to create cities beyond their imagination. Architects were also common, they created cities that are very special. The second largest city, called Constantinople, is an advanced port , but half the size of Rome. the third largest city in the world, Alexandria, is a place for learning, shipbuilding, and seafood producing. The forth largest city, Athens, was another place of learning. Finally, the fifth largest city, Londinium, was military area for training some of the world's largest armies. Later, no more cities were built and population rising stopped.

Art and mosaics became super lavish and more lifelike. Mosaics were later decorated with more precious stones and became more realistic. Silver and gold dust is spread all over the mosaic, making it glitter more. Some mosaics were put into fountains to make them look pretty. They were found in many buildings, even in apartments where poor people live. Art has also changed as well. After discovering the human body, art started to look more graceful and realistic. Painting in buildings looked more lifelike and many Romans could think they are in a new world. Statues are showing to have muscles and veins, and Romans loved great art.

Alchemy, next started. like real history alchemy, scientists tried to turn metal into gold and other precious metals. Some believed they could create medicines to cure all diseases, and give special powers. Unfortunately, no one could find a potion to give special powers, but they did find potions to turn metals into precious ones, and a potion to cure all diseases. In 234 A.D., a famous scientist, named Batanaho, invented many scientific machines, but never found a way to turn metals into precious ones, but did find a potion to cure all diseases. He called it Radifus Dalato, meaning great cure. Another famous scientist, named Nero, invented a liquid to turn metals to all kinds of metals to precious ones. the instructions to get what you wanted is to say which precious metal (including gems) you want, otherwise it'll go to random. Nero invented another liquid to supply mines forever. this was tried with all mines, and it did.

Trade and economy increased, and ports were sometimes over crowded, so emperor decided to build some for other merchants to trade at. the famous port, called Calafornus, in San Francisco Bay, was a large port where everything in the Roman produce list is produced at (also Rome). It has buildings that are on water, and the city covers around the entire bay. the ports were always filled with ships, and there are many canals and waterways where ships could go through. There were more merchants and other rich people than are poor people. A famous lighthouse, called the San Fransica, is a tall lighthouse that has ten levels that guides ships better. The streets are filled with shoppers and the most famous market there is called Cladaus's market, named after the architect who built it. It has 20 levels. The first level are vegetables, fruits, and flowers, next, the next floor has oil and wine, then, the third floor is pepper and spice market, next, the fourth floor there are offices with a main hall for food and money handouts. The fifth floor, here is a seafood market served by two aqueducts bringing in fresh and saltwater. The sixth floor are slaves. The seventh floor is a sweet market. the eighth floor is a meat market. The ninth floor is a dairy market. The tenth floor are souvenirs luxuries items. The eleventh floor is a clothing store with barber shops. The 12th floor is a silk market. the 13th floor is a collecting shop, where you can get super-precious items and make collections of it. The fourteenth floor is a pottery market. The fifteenth is a bath area. the sixteenth is a theater. The seventeenth floor is a church. The eighteenth floor is a artifact shop. The nineteenth floor is a library. the 20th floor was a outdoor area, which is a restaurant. other architects had planned brilliant shops and markets to be declared famous. Their tombs are at the basement.

Technology and inventions had improved, giving an easier life to the people of the empire. An inventor, named Julia, had invented a type carriage on an elephant with a table and some soft seats. It helped people on it ride it more comfortable. Another inventor, named Alexia, discovered a iron plow, which could plow more better than their original plows, so thing could be done faster. An inventor, named Pious, built a special water clock and gyroscope that could help tell time. Raua, an expert on agriculture, designed the longblock, to help unclog canals. This help get back water. An inventor, named Optimus, invented a new type of architecture, named the Ranaya, which is a line of vaults equally together. It decorated many villas more better. Another inventor, named Lugosia, invented a knew type of shield. Made out of iron and leather, it is strong enough to resist attacks. An inventor named Sparagos, invented a type of pick axe called biaxe, which could mine rock faster. When Anasaphat became emperor, he decided that nuns were allowed to be priestess as well. Also, he thinks that the Orthodox Church needs a leader. he called it a Patriarch. He chose the first Patriarch, called Athenagonasa. A patriarch lives in a luxury, he also could retire and set up a knew one. the rule for a patriarch had to be a Jew. Jews were holy enough he believed to be a patriarch. To be one, you must have a shaggy white beard. The Romans and the patriarch together believed their emperors were chosen by God and alone, he had the right to rule. Orthodox Jews were sent altogether to Rome in 1503. Although the Jews can practice their religion, some of them had to be chosen a patriarch. Patriarchs from now on, are the leaders of the Orthodox church.

The enemies feared the Roman army and navy, but during the Ultra-Golden Age, the entire superpower, was improved. The Roman navy was changed. it became the style of medieval warships, but held booby traps to enemies. To roam it, a ram inside the ship was moved the damage the sip. It even had a lot of trechbuckets and catapults that could fire on the ships with heated shots. To form a bridge, planks were shot out fast, so Roman soldiers could cross it. The types of warships were caravel, galleon, frigate, elite fire ships, and sea galleys. The Roman army was also changed. Besides the Roman soldiers, it also included Spanish-style knights. Boneguards were the most elite of all soldiers. They have a sword and a bow and arrows. It is very advanced. Roman soldiers also changed. Their armor covers their cloth, and their helmet could close for better protection. They even had crosses, the symbol of Christianity, as well as the eagle and lion, made the soldiers powerful and faithful.

Many new methods of building were discovered. In 432 A.D., a special crane, called Ambleufea, can supply building materials and run by slaves, it carries it and moves with wheels to its place. In 447 A.D., a method of building was discovered. A scientist named Jandalsaias invented the carving saw, which helped carve things much more neater. A special kind of hammer, called a jackaxe, helped people fasten things together easier.

Literature became more popular and so did advancing bookmaking! The Romans are skilled storytellers andmore libraries were built. the famous and largest of them all is the Library of Hispania, which has Greek, Latin, Phoenician, and other languages of books. Hispania is Spain and Portugal, and is in the city of Toldalaciaos. The library even has a dining area, a garden, and a monastery area and a church with a library of Bibles. It was built by Tiberiaias. Bookmaking advanced as learning not how to make paper from the method of Egypt, but also China. Like Egypt, China can also make paper by miking silk fibers, hemp, bamboo, straw, and seaweed. When the Romans invaded China, they adopted this method of making paper. After their invasion of Egypt, they adopted this method as well. Bookmaking became more better when most Romans invented books, like scrolls. The scrolls also advanced. Some of them became twice as thick than the Torah, to the size of four scrolls. Pictures became more beautiful and lifelike, and literature became better. books and scrolls are starting to have precious decorations on them. Soon, it was very famous.

Recreation started to advance and get more popular. Chariot races are starting to have horse battles. These were events when charioteers fight African animals or fight themselves. Drama and plays become more exciting. In holy days, many plays were held a the one that is the best, the actors, actresses, and the starter of the play is rewarded with gold. New recreation games in amphitheaters started to get more popular. the arenas were flooded in sea battles were more common. Food is served the the amphitheaters, circuses, and theaters. the Olympic games, however, no longer serve to their god, Jupiter. Instead, it is done for fun and many foot races became more popular. Other emperors and empresses started to add more greatness to these recreation games. Many board games were invented, and people can have fun whatever they wanted!

Rome, Cities, Towns, and Ports[]

The Romans built many cities, towns, and ports as well people live in Rome.

The City of Rome[]

Just at it is, it is the most enormous, magnificent, splendid, wealthiest, fortified, and the greatest city in the world. It had 40 million people. It is very huge because the city is stretched magically without going on the land, but did cover all of central Italy. It had magnificent and splendid buildings, and has a bunch of 55 forums at the middle as with the Imperial Palace. It had huge harbors and series of canals. Rome was a tropical paradise. It had a lot of palm trees and has a firefighter and police force to look after the city. And yes, as with every city, there were poor and rich. Everyone speaks Latin and Greek, in the empire, but rarely, other world-wide languages. Their culture is very advanced, and trading happens more there than anywhere else. With thick walls, fortified with watchtowers, gates, forts and super fire-shot trechbuckets made land of sea invasions difficult. After the invasion of China, they adopted the way of gunpowder in using it for fireworks and made a technique of the fire shot. It boasted a sewer system, and organized social service in hospitals, homes, and orphanages. Ships crowded the city's harbors, luxuries come from all over the world. people without jobs are given, such as sweeping the streets, and weeding public gardens. The city's streets are either narrow of wide, grand and board, straight or twisting. People, camels, mule trains, horses, elephants, soldiers, merchants, peasants, water sellers, sweetmeat sellers, porters, beggars, raged children, barefooted slaves, stray dogs and cats, pets, priests, nuns, bishops, archbishops, carriages, and litters all crowd the streets. Many luxuries items, like ivory, silks, fur, perfumes, rum, gold, furniture, Samian ware, fabulous, wealthy, and rich dining utensils, musical instruments, silverware, ornaments, decorating supplies, spices, precious and colored stones, and other luxuries items fled in Rome's and its empire's markets. Everyone attended circuses, theaters, and amphitheaters. They were one of the many recreations that made the Romans happy. All roads and trade routes lead to Rome. Public works were always made, and it has expanded a lot as the population grew.

Cities, Ports, and Towns[]

When the Roman empire claimed territory, towns, cities, and ports were built. How towns were made is by drawing a grid pattern borrowed from the Greeks. Like every town, it had a forum, amphitheaters, theaters, circuses, Senate House, sewer systems, marketplaces, churches, monastery, schools, universities, libraries, gardens, aqueducts, farms, forts, and graveyards. The ports always have the same as towns and cities, but also lighthouses, harbors, markets on water, bridges, walls, canals, warship forts, to produce warships, and water gates, for ships to enter and closes when enemy battleships come. Every city, town, and port is wealthy and are home to a center of producing types of goods and trading them. They all have one thing in common: always busy and crowded, and had traffic jams. There were houses for rich and poor, and had inns. Like Rome, there were many crowded streets. Markets also had taverns beside a sqouq.

Ports are completely a different story. Ports are centers of warship building, seafood produce, and centers of trading. Canals were water streets where ships drove on, and many monuments are found. There were many arenas where battleships fought, and there were many buildings that could stand on the water. Ships guard and control the waters around the port. Irrigation ditches were built at the ports in swampy areas to deliver to farms to control the water level. Romans had made a filter to turn the water cleaner, and most of the water is delivered the fountains and waterfalls that flow to the canals at the port. Romans refer the ports at the tropics, Mediterranean world, and the ocean islands as paradises.

Advance, again![]

During the Ultra-Golden age, the Roman Empire was very wealthy and peaceful, however, peace did not last. Emperor Justinian in 1009 A.D. wanted to advance the entire empire. Ultra-Golden Age turned into the Warfare Age, though it is still wealthy.

Under Justinian, he was the most skilled soldier and took part in gladiator and chariot races. During his reign, advanced started. he wanted to advance westward. However, this was not easy. Justinian, his generals, and the army had to cross the Sahara Desert. A few men died, but Justinian still had the advantage to attack other empires. In 1022, he had destroyed the West African Empires and the Carthaginian Empire. The Sahara Desert later slowly changed into a grassland. Finally, the entire world was in Roman Control. And the empire lives today.
