The Last Three Years of the 0s
97 CE: The Roman Emperor Nerva names Trajan his successor, preventing possible mutiny from the Praetorian Guards and others. Senator Tacitus advances his position to that of consul, making him head of state of the Roman Empire, but only in name. Cuicul, a Roman military garrison, is founded in the Roman Province of Numidia, in OTL present day Algeria, at a conflux of two rivers. Nerva recognizes a Jewish assembly as being the governing body for Jews, with the assembly’s patriarch as the Jewish representative to the empire. Ambassador Gan Ying of China is ordered by his general, Ban Chao, to establish ties with the Parthian empire. He hears rumours of the Roman Empire, but is constantly told by Parthians (who all are interested in keeping their monopoly on regional trade) that the journey to Rome across the Mediterranean takes years. But in this timeline, there is one less liar, an unnamed merchant who tells Gan Ying the truth. Gan Ying and his party set out to visit Rome, and arrived during November. At the historic meeting between Gan Ying and Emperor Nerva, which relied on the use of six interpreters, ties, however fragile they were, are made. One month later, the Emperor suffers a stroke earlier than OTL, and dies of a fever resulting from that stroke. Trajan becomes emperor, and promises to keep Rome’s new ties with China. Pope Clement I dies, Pope Evaristus becomes the fifth Catholic Pope, and sends a mission back along with Gan Ying.
98 CE: The new Roman Emperor Trajan restores the Senate to its full former position, and begins making efficient budget changes. The informers of the former emperor and tyrant Domitian are expelled from Rome. Trajan orders the reopening of the canal between the Nile River and the Red Sea, Gan Ying returns to China via this canal, on a long sea journey. After his return to China, he persuades Emperor He to send diplomats back to Rome. After Gan Ying had passed through the Roman province of Aegyptus, rumours caused by misunderstanding about the dangerous men of the East spread through the province of Aegyptus, resulting in several riots that affected grain exports. Although the riots were mainly non-violent, and lasted only two weeks, grain distribution was hampered, preventing distant provinces from getting their share. While the famine was not widespread, it did weaken the border security of the Empire. Trajan’s state welfare system is started, and assures that poor children are fed and are taken care of. Senator Tacitus finishes his book on the Germanic tribes outside of the Empire, and begins a book on the Indi, or Asian tribes and kingdoms.
99 CE: Weakened borders allow Germanic tribes (mainly the Hermunduri) to periodically invade the Roman province of Raetia. During a skirmish in August, a fire, meant to raze a village, spreads, causing a devastating forest fire. The destruction is so severe that Raetia is renamed Terra Exuro (the burned land).
100-109 CE: Terra Exuro is reclaimed from the Germanic tribes by the Roman Empire; the military victory enhances Trajan’s popularity. 24 Balkan lions, nearly extinct, are sent to China as a gift from Rome. Popes Cassian I and II are the sixth and seventh Popes respectively.
110-119 CE: The Roman Empire reaches its greatest extent. While Asiatic rice had been in the region a by the last century, a vast new influx of imported rice, causes a rice-growing boom in the Roman Empire. Rice is grown in vast quantities in the provinces of Tarraconensis (Spain), Mesopotamia, Iudea, Sicilia, Italia, and Lugdunensis (NE France). Popes Cassian III and IV are the eighth and ninth Popes respectively.
120-129 CE: Hadrian becomes Emperor after Trajan’s death in the year 120; his first tour takes him to Britain. Suetonius becomes Hadrian's secretary ab epistolis. Ambassadors from Scythia in western India arrive in Rome, and discuss trade and other relations. This decade is usually considered the start of large-scale globalisation, with an unprecedented amount of ideas and goods flowing east and west. In 124, greed caused by the want to control the wealth that came with the new goods causes some of Rome’s nobles, the Patricians revolt against Hadrian. The revolt is put down, but Hadrian loses his life. He is succeeded by, Antoninus Pius, whom he named earlier in this timeline than in OTL. Popes Cassian V and VI are the tenth and eleventh Popes respectively.
130-139 CE: Emperor Antoninus Pius bans slave executions without trial. The Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens is completed in memory of Hadrian; the Temple is notable for being the earliest found example of oriental architecture in the West, especially its ceramic tiling. In 132 the Emperor visits Petra and Gerasa, while he is away his wife Prisca the Elder dies. He deifies her and makes a temple in her honour in Gerasa, next to an arch of remembrance for Hadrian. Huviska becomes king of the Kushan empire, an empire located around OTL present-day NW India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Queen Kanti I of Scythia becomes ruler, and reconquers land from the Andhra. She champions equality of the sexes in the Indian subcontinent; this idea slowly spreads along the trade routes. Basra, by the Persian Gulf, becomes the capital of the province of Arabia. Ptolemy finishes his world map earlier than OTL, and it is more accurate due to traders flooding the Indian Ocean. Pope Cassian VII becomes the twelfth Pope.
140-149 CE: The Germanic Quadi become allies with Rome. In 140, Legate Marcus Gallus leads an army from Britain into Rome, ending the Pax Romana, or Roman Peace. He seizes the empire, proclaims himself emperor, and kills the Antonine family, including Antoninus Pius. Pope Aurelius dies, Pope Cassian VIII succeeds him, becoming the fourteenth Pope. Marcion of Sinope goes to Rome and teaches that there are two gods, one of the Old Testament and the other of the new. This becomes Church doctrine, and Marcion becomes a saint after death. Ptolemy finishes his Magnum Opus, The Almagest, which revolutionises astronomical thinking.
150-159 CE: The Roman army pulls out of Britain; Marcus Gallus uses it (400,000 men in total) to strengthen his rule. Germanic tribes of the East move southwards towards the Black Sea. Marcion of Sinope’s Gospel of Luke is completed; a baker’s wife, Livia of Salona, becomes the leader of those opposed to Marcion’s teachings, she founds the Livian church in 154. The schism causes violence between the two sects, each denouncing the other as heretics. The Livian Church also notably absorbs some elements of Taoism. The Great Pyramid of the Sun is constructed by the Mayans. Paper is sent in large quantities to Rome.
160-169 CE: Herminius the Martyr is executed by the Han Chinese for his efforts to spread Christianity among the nobles. The Roman Empire is attacked from all sides, especially from the Germanic tribes. The Germanic Wars pits the Romans against the Germanic groups, especially the Quadi. While Marcus Gallus and his troops are victorious, they return with a plague of smallpox, named Marcus’ Plague. The plague killed more than 11% of the Empire’s population, including Marcus Gallus, who died in 161. Marcus’ Plague would spread eastward to China, where more than 6% of the population died due to the plague. Marcus Gallus was succeeded by Fabianus Marinus.
170-179 CE: The Germanic Wars continue, and Rome reclaims Mesopotamia from the Parthian Empire.
180-189 CE: The Yellow Turban Rebellion in Han China occurs, caused in part by famine and a return of Marcus’ Plague which killed more than 27% of Han China’s population (a further 18% of the Roman Empire’s population died from this outbreak). The Taoist leaders, Yi Wu and his younger brother Yi Su and younger sister Yi Mei, capture cities throughout Han China, but are ultimately stopped. A woman, Yin Ya, was the General-in–Chief of the rebellion, while the warlords Fu Ah and Rong Bo lead armies against the Kingdom. 190-199 CE: Fabianus Marcus is assassinated in 192, leading to the Year of the Six Emperors, with six rival claimants for the title of Emperor. This results in a civil war, while the Christian Church disintegrates due to the discovery that the tyrant Fabianus Marcus had been secretly Christian. The Livian Church becomes the main church for Christians. The six claimants are Faustinus, Germanus Sergius, the lady Pomponia Caelia, Tatius Aemilianus, Augustus Hadrianus, and Valerius Fabianus. Valerius Fabianus becomes Emperor after defeating Augustus Hadrianus at the Battle of Tinurtium in 198. In the turmoil, and without any armies oppressing it, Britain secedes from the Empire.
200-209 CE: Valerius Fabianus has builders create arches every 24 km or so all along the main land-route from China to Rome. He also leads an expedition to Britain to regain territory lost to northern tribes. In 206, while on the expedition, Valerius Fabianus falls ill and dies. He is succeeded by Severianus. Titus is the Livian Pope. The Mayans are flourishing in the Americas.
210-219 CE: Severianus has to deal with an increased Christian presence throughout the Empire; his response is massacres of Christians. Pope Titus is killed; he is succeeded by his advisor, the female bishop Prisca I, she was a former slave. The Han Dynasty is ended by the Clay Revolution, with Xue Dong becoming the ruler of the Wei kingdom, the strongest of the Three Kingdoms. Cai Wenji, one of the last of the Hans, leaves China with the survivors of the Royal Court, and an armed force of over 2000 men. They head west, arriving in the Roman Empire in 217. Severianus employs the soldiers against Britain, and grants them rule of Britain after they subdue the tribes. Cai Wenji becomes the queen of Britain. Also notably, some court alchemists start developing saltpetre, which is important for gunpowder.
220-229 CE: Camillus Sextus becomes the emperor of Rome, he rules as a cruel tyrant. Pope Prisca I is martyred for her faith during an anti-Christian uprising in 224, and is succeeded by Pope Horatius I.

230-239 CE: The Alamanni tribe from Germany devastate Terra Exuro and its surrounding neighbours, as the Carpians and Goths attack the Roman Empire from the east, sacking Sucidava on the north bank of the Danube. The Colosseum is destroyed; in its place a temple to Camillus Sextus is built. But Camillus Sextus is killed by a fire that devastates Rome in 231; the cause was a revolt led by Tatianus Maximinus. Tatianus Maximinus, of barbarian parentage, becomes emperor of Rome, and marks the beginning of the Crisis of the Third Century. Invasion, civil war, plague, and economic depression all result from the change in regime. The Four Marcellinus’ take over the empire as co-emperors; they eventually fight one another for the crown. All their secondary emperors are named Servius. Pope Horatius I is succeeded by Pope Domitia. After Pope Domita was exiled by Camillus Sextus, she was succeeded by Pope Tertius, who ruled for only one month. Aurelianus becomes the Pope afterwards. The Mayans continue to flourish.
240-249 CE: The Third Century Plague, smallpox, kills 23% of the Roman Empire’s population, due in part to the Crisis. It also kills 15% of Shu China’s population. Nicopolis ad Nestum, a Roman town by the eastern edge of the Empire, is raided by the Goths, led by Ealdræd and Ewald. Marcellinus VIII seizes the empire, from the Three Marcellinus’, who had in turn taken the empire from the last of the Four Marcellinus’s, Marcellinus IV. Laurentius the Planner, a part Christian, part State Religion believer, seizes the empire from Marcellinus VIII in 245.
250-259 CE: The Sassanids, led by King Naveed VI, capture Mesopotamia from the Romans for their empire, taking advantage of the Crisis. They invade Armenia, and install a vassal prince after expelling King Sosigenes VI. Prisca becomes the Empress of Rome in 250, and demands sacrifices under penalty of death to herself throughout the Empire. She names Cyprianus and Rufus her sons and successors. She dies fighting the Goths, and Instead of the named successors, is succeeded by Empress Blandina Varinia, who adopts Cyprianus as her son and successor. When the Third Century Plague kills Cyprianus, Appius, Blandina’s son, is named successor. When Fabricius’ legions declare him Emperor, they battle Blandina’s forces to the north of Rome. When Blandina Varinia loses, her remaining forces kill her. Fabricius too is killed by his forces when Aquila I is declared Emperor by the Senate. Aquila becomes Emperor, and massacres anyone who did not follow Prisca’s Edict for sacrifices to the Emperor. He sends legions to fight the Berbers, who are intent on invading Northern Africa. St. Hortensia, bishop of the Ambarri tribe of Gaul, is martyred during the massacres; she is decapitated. The Ambarri retaliate by marching southwards. They go as far as Legio, on the Iberian Peninsula, and rampage through the province of Tarraconensis. Þýri, or Tyra, becomes Queen of the Goths, and leads an invasion of the area by the Black Sea. While initially repelled, they break through, and capture central towns in the region. After the successes in that region, they raid Asia Minor, but retreat after being cut off north of the Danube by Fabricius’ forces. When they return to Asia Minor, they try, but fail to capture Antioch. The Sasanians succeed in capturing Antioch, and massacre the populous. When the Goths return, they sack the remains of Antioch, and the surrounding areas. They then turn to attacking Asia Minor’s coastal towns along the Black Sea. The Juthungi cross the Danube into Italy, but are stopped by Aquila’s co-emperor, Empress Paula.

Empress Paula becomes sole ruler of Rome in 264, and has to deal with revolts in Aegypt, the breadbasket of Rome. To prevent too much dependence on Aegypt, she supports rice-growing throughout the Empire. Commander Quintus revolts against Paula by the Germanies, while at the same time preventing a barbarian invasion; he is eventually killed by his troops. The Arch of Paula in Rome was commissioned by her, as well as many other patriotic works and marches throughout Rome. Cloelia Luciana, the praefect of Aegypt, proclaims herself Emperor, but is captured by Empress Paula’s forces, led by General Drusus. The Ambarri take control of the northern extremes of Gaul. With the Frankish tribes, they attempt to raid the Empire, but are defeated by General Varinius. Still, they manage to march into Italy, only to be stopped by Paula’s armies. General Varianus uses his victory against the tribes to declare the western third of the Roman Empire independent, ruled by him, as the Gallic Empire. Paula was able to regain Terra Exuro from the Gallic Empire. Emperor Pericles of Cragus captures towns in Asia Minor; later, they besiege the Sasanian capital of Merv. General Drusus revolts against Paula and declares himself Emperor of Rome, and establishes his base in northern Italy. He is defeated by the Empress during a battle, and returns to his base, where he surrenders. Servius V, after becoming Emperor, has him put to death after Drusus’ defeat of Florianus and Livianus. An army commander of barbarian birth from the eastern part of the Empire, Servius V, murders Paula and takes her place as Emperor. His armies succeed in stopping the Berbers from invading. Barbarians capture Roman outposts all along the frontiers of Germany. The Eastern Roman Armies declare 76 year old Florianus Rufus Emperor of Rome; he passes the throne down to his sons, Livianus Marcellinus and Marianus I. Florianus and Livianus are defeated by Servius’ supporters, led by General Drusus. Emperor Pericles of Cragus kills Marianus in battle. Servius V defeats the Ambarri and Franks. Servius V is captured by the Sasanians during a peace talk with Queen Sanaz, he is taken to the capital of Merv; the Sasanians also destroy Petra. When returning with the plunder of Petra, they are attacked by Emperor Pericles of the Cragusian Empire, a splinter empire from Rome and his army. The Cragusians defeat the Sasanians outside of Merv. Emperor Pericles of Cragus is killed by his brother-in-law Terentius; Terentius is killed after becoming emperor by Valeriana, who becomes the Queen of Cragus. Valeriana captures Egypt, and titles herself “Queen of Egypt.” Zebadiah becomes the first Patriarch of Cragus, replacing the Patriarch of Antioch after the massacre, as the Livian Presider of bishops throughout the Levant. He hosts the Christian Council of Cragus, which sets forth the rules bishops must follow. The Goths continue to cause havoc around Asia Minor, sacking Byzantium and other cities, including Athens, Corinth, and Sparta. They move back north to continue their assaults on the area by the Black Sea. Another attack on Byzantium is repelled, as are more and more attacks along the Black Sea. Roman armies are moved back from Germany, they were unable to withstand the Germanic tribes’ continuous and repeated assaults. The Roman city of Cyrenaica in Africa is destroyed by an earthquake, and is never rebuilt.
270-279 CE: The Dujiangyan Dam in the Shu Kingdom is again destroyed by members of the Wei Kingdom, flooding part of the Shu Kingdom. The Crisis, while not ending, is subdued during this decade. Lucilla’s legions declare her Empress after Servius V dies in Sasanian captivity. She reconquers the Cragusian and Gallic Empires. After she is assassinated, the Senate chooses Caelia Regula Caelina as Empress.

A Centurion, Titiana, becomes a Christian martyr when she does not sacrifice to the Roman Gods during a festival. Eastern Slavs in Europe are pushed to the Baltic by other tribes; they begin sailing westwards across the Atlantic, where they land on Canada’s northern islands. They mix with the Dorset populations, who also are just ending their migration to the islands. While they never made a return trip, Eastern Slavs would continue to sail from Europe to the northern islands for centuries, using ships resembling ships of ancient Egypt. Taoists attempt to kill the king of the Shu Kingdom, but fail.
300-309 CE: The Shu kingdom uses artillery with a gunpowder propellant on a battlefield for the first time in history, in 300. Emperor Kaito Hayate of Japan leads a time of great peace. Marianus II institutes the Triarchy, a system with one Augusti, and two Caesars who rule beneath the Augusti, but all ruling as Emperors. Marianus II is the first Augusti, with Quintus being Caesar of the West, and Tatianus being Caesar of the East. In Britain, Queen Elouise names herself Augusti of Britain, after her abdication, King Willoughby also names himself Augusti. In Gaul, Marcellinus IX and Luciana, leaders of peasant separatists, name themselves Augusti, but their rebellions are put down. In Roman Africa, Aquila Drusilla names herself Augusti, but commits suicide before her capture by Roman forces. Flavia Flavia in Aegypt names herself Augusti, but dies after her revolt is quelled by the Empire. She is succeeded by Paulina Paulina, also in Aegypt, she was put to death after a six month siege in Alexandria. In Syria, Aquila II declares himself Augusti, but is captured after battle and killed; he was the last Christian Emperor of Rome. After Marianus II abdicates, and Quintus commits suicide, the Triarchy is reformed. Tatianus becomes Augusti, with Liviana Hadriana as Caesar of the West, and Rufina Horatia as the East’s counterpart. Liviana Hadriana dies of old age, causing the Triarchy to be reformed again. Tatianus remains Augusti, and Saturninus becomes the Caesar of the West. Rufina Horatia retains her position. After a dispute with Tatianus, Saturninus is executed, causing Rufina Horatia to die of despair. The Triarchy thus changes to hold Tatianus still as Augusti, with Constans I as the West’s Caesar, and Domitilla becoming the East’s. In Roman Africa, Julia Albina declares herself Augusti, she is taken prisoner and strangled. The Khazar Kingdom in northern Eurasia adopts Christianity as its state religion, the first nation to do so. Hau-Maka is the first settler and Supreme Chief of Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island.
310-319 CE: Tatianus dies of bowel cancer, resulting in Constans I becoming Augusti, with Domitilla remaining Caesar of the East, and Lucretia becoming the Caesar of the West. In 312, Constans I begins the Great Persecution of Christians, which kills 90% of the Empire’s Christians, with the rest fleeing, hiding, or abandoning their religion. Christianity in Europe is virtually ended by Constans I, it only remains in the Khazar Kingdom by the Caspian Sea. Taoists once again fail to assassinate the Shu King. 320-329 CE: Scotland is invaded and reclaimed by the Britons. Constans I makes it illegal to protect Christians, continuing the Great Persecution.

Two years later, another earthquake, followed by a tsunami, strikes the Mediterranean, causing large-scale destruction in Crete and Alexandria, and damage to Italy, Greece and Palestine as well. The earthquake causes the province of Syria Palaestina to hav its capital transferred from Jerusalem to Samaria. Aelia II, daughter of Hadrianus, bribes two legions into aiding her in her takeover of Constanopolis in 364; she only gains control of the city and its surrounding areas, not the whole empire. Spurius, son of Aelia II, defeats Aelia II forces, and proclaims himself Emperor; he is regarded as the last strong Emperor of the Roman Empire. Spurius banishes Pontifex Maximus Caesar from the Roman Religion’s base in Pelusium, Aegypt.
370-379 CE: The smallpox plague ends. The Visigothi tribe, fleeing from the Hunni that are invading from the east, are permitted to enter the Roman Empire in 371. They then attack Roman forces, and defeat Spurius, causing the decline of the Empire as they move west.

When they in turn become unhappy with Augustus II, they assassinate him and replace him with Constans IV. He leads his troops out of Gaul and attacks Hispania; the Roman presence in Gaul will never be the same. In Hispania, some of Constans’ troops nominate Decimus as the Emperor, causing a schism. The barbarians in Gaul take advantage of this and move into Hispania, defeating Constans IV and Decimus.
