The Han and Roman Empires.
The Roman Empire and the Han Empire were similar and different in many ways. Both were strong over powering empires that had their strengths and weaknesses and in this paper I will describe in detail to you about both empires. .
The core of the Romans power lay in the hard-fisted Roman peasantry and their grim patrician overlords for centuries. Both of them provided the backbone of the Roman army. The Romans were very confident in themselves and in their minds they were made to rule. The Romans were very disciplined, practical, brave, and intensely conservative. With all these characteristics no wonder the Romans were successful. .
The Roman Empire, government system established by Rome lasted for nearly five centuries. Historians usually date the beginning of the Roman Empire from 27 BC when the Roman Senate gave Gaius Octavius the name Augustus and he became the undisputed emperor after a lot of years of civil war. At the empires peak they acquired lands throughout the Mediterranean world. Rome had first expanded into other parts of Italy and neighboring territories during the Roman Republic (509-27 BC), but made wider conquests and solidified political control of theses lands during the empire. The empire lasted until Germanic invasions, economic decline, and internal unrest in the 4th and 5th centuries AD ended Rome's ability to dominate such a huge territory. The Romans and their empire gave cultural and political shape to the subsequent history of Europe from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the present day. .
It is fair enough to state that contemporary empires of the Han Dynasty and the Roman Empire were the two superpowers of the known world so therefore are very similar in that aspect. But during the Han Dynasty, China officially became a Confucian state and prospered domestically, extending its political and cultural influence over Vietnam, Central Asia, Mongolia, and Korea before it finally collapsed under a mixture of domestic and external pressures.
