This is a narration of ancient Rome and its history from the founding of Rome in the year 753 BC, until the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 AD. This podcast is published on a weekly basis, and episodes are around fifteen minutes in length. Episode by episode, the podcast will travel in time, starting from a man called Aeneas who left Troy and settled in Italy. It will continue its trip to the birth of Romulus and Remus, and how they founded Rome. Later you will hear about the things the Kings of Rome and what they did (and didn't do) to stay in power, and how they ultimately lost that power, giving way to the Republic of Rome. Then, we will sail through the lands of the Mediterranean Sea, and watch Rome grow. Battle after battle and conquest after conquest, we will learn about the mindset of Romans and their conquered peoples. There's religion and war. There is golden eras and times of despair. Deadly games and lively characters. We will approach the time when the Republic is ripe to fall. The Empire of Rome will be at our doorsteps, with all the glory and vanity of good and bad emperors. We will travel through the Golden Age of Rome, with the well known Five Good Emperors, and then we will watch Rome slide, slowly and inexorably, to its demise. By the time we have reached the fifth century AD, there will be no man or god (true or false) who will save Rome.
