Roman history is the story of the Romans' conquest of Italy and the entire Mediterranean world. The Romans were conquerors, but they also governed, using republican forms that have been passed down to us. Prior to Christianity, Roman religion involved the worship of gods and goddesses (polytheism). They were innovators and borrowed ideas from those around them. But, with every rise in power, comes the fall! Rome "fell" in the 400s AD.
