The Roman Empire was the post-Republican period of ancient Rome. As a polity it included large territorial holdings around the Mediterranean Sea in Europe, Northern Africa, and Western Asia ruled by emperors.
Founded by Augustus Caesar in 31BC when he proclaimed himself as the first emperor, the Roman emperor saw more than 70 emperors in its time. The Roman Empire fell with the fall of Romulus Augustus in 476 AD.
