“Could the fall of the Roman Empire have been avoided?”
The story of the last days of the Western Roman Empire is a tale of two men: Emperor Majorian and his advisor, Ricimer.
Majorian was a brave and determined leader who inherited a realm in chaos. He spent his reign fighting to restore the empire to its former glory.
Ricimer, was a power-hungry opportunist who saw disorder as an opportunity to seize control.
As the empire crumbled beneath them, only one would be left standing.
