The books cover the period of the Roman Empire after Marcus Aurelius, from just before 180 to 1453 and beyond, concluding in 1590. They take as their material the behavior and decisions that led to the decay and eventual fall of the Roman Empire in the East and West, offering an explanation for why the Roman Empire fell. Gibbon is sometimes called the first modern historian of ancient Rome. By virtue of its mostly objective approach and highly accurate use of reference material, Gibbon’s work was adopted as a model for the methodologies of 19th and 20th century historians.

Gibbons the reknown but poorly liked historian of 18th century England achieved immortally with his 10 years of dedication to his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. He starts at 0 AD and carries us through to 490 AD with a detailed depliction of the important reigns of the Roman Emperor's. He describes their faults and most commonly their untimely deaths as it appears that 60-70 percent of the Emperors were assasinated by the sword. Another wonderful character was the Emperor Julian who died in battle.
