But then the church became very rich and powerful...there were many people who wanted to be rulers...and so Rome since 753 BC went through many rulers...at that time...yes war would get you to be the ruler if you defeat the current ruler. You had Octavian who called himself "first citizen" instead of emperor or king. He made some changes. Then Constantine, the 1st christian ruled and made Constantinople the capital of Rome...every ruler was making their mark. Then Diocletan, he split the empire that was Rome. things spiralled since then....and the barbarians and the pirates invaded Rome...it was became a real mess..so much that tax collectors had to be guarded by military escort...cont..
