The Roman Empire grew to enormous proportions. It was huge! It covered most of Europe, most of North Africa, and some of Asia. That created problems.
One problem was that it was getting difficult to manage the empire effectively. Rome seemed very far away to the people in the provinces.The Empire was divided :
- The Western Roman Empire (Europe/North Africa) included the city of Rome.
- The Eastern Roman Empire (Turkey/parts of Asia) included the city of Byzantium

After precipitating the invasions of the Germanic tribes in the fourth century, the central Asian Huns, under their ruler Attila, also invaded the Roman Empire and conquered much of central and eastern Europe. In 451 - 452, they invaded Gaul and Italy, but these territories were successfully defended by a coalition of Roman and Germanic troops. The Huns were defeated at Châlons in 451 and soon after the death of Attila in 453, the Hunnic Empire fell apart. Other Asian nomadic peoples who entered Europe were the Avars in the sixth century, the Bulgars in the sixth and seventh centuries, and the Magyars in the ninth century. The Magyars settled in the
Danubian plain and their descendants still inhabit modern Hungary.
