The Roman Empire was the largest empire the ancient world (pre-476 CE) had ever seen. At its height, it covered all the lands around the Mediterranean Sea and parts of northern Europe, Africa, and the Near East. It lasted over a thousand years, from 31 BCE to 476 CE in the West and to 1453 CE in the East. This audio article will explain how the Empire started, some of the key events and emperors, and how it eventually fell.
