The Aurelian Walls continued as a significant military defense for the city of Rome until 20 September 1870, when the Bersaglieri of the Kingdom of Italy breached the wall near the Porta Pia and captured Rome. The walls also defined the boundary of the city of Rome up until the 19th century, with the built-up area being confined within the walled area. So for our most recent trips we have returned to a book full of action - The Gates of Rome, the first in the Emperor series by Conn Iggulden (and Iggulden’s extraordinary debut as a novelist). It is read perfectly by Robert Glenister. For years afterwards, Romans would yell, “Hannibal ad portas” (Hannibal is at the gates) whenever things looked bad for the Republic or when parents wanted to scare their children into behaving properly.

The people of Rome were devastated. Many Romans were taken captive, including the Emperor's sister, Galla Placidia. Some citizens would be ransomed, others would be sold into slavery, and still others would be raped and killed. [95] Pelagius, a Roman monk from Britain, survived the siege and wrote an account of the experience in a letter to a young woman named Demetrias. William Jones, Ecclesiastical history, in a course of lectures, Vol. 1, (G. Wightman, Paternoster Row and G. J. McCombie, Barbican, 1838), p. 421. The diarist Giacinto Gigli wrote: ”On the 21 day a Ban was published, that the following day all the shops should have been kept closed, and nothing should not be sold, …, and the streets through which the Queen, from Porta del Popolo to St. Peter, should be ornamented, but then in the evening the feast was intimated, and in the streets the notice ran, that the ride had been deferred to the next day.” Sam Moorhead and David Stuttard, AD410: The Year that Shook Rome, (The British Museum Press, 2010), pp. 124–126.

Ancient Rome’s Western walls are further fortified by the natural boundary of the Tiber. Yet, this does not detract from the gates of Ancient Rome that remain positioned both on its western banks. The exciting third novel in Iggulden's Genghis Khan series tells the dramatic story of the Mongol invasion and conquest of Central Asia. Genghis has already defeated the Chinese and Koreans, Continue reading » Marcus, on the other hand, travels to join the army. With his excellent fighting skills, honed on the estate, he soon catches the eye of his commanders. Add to that a growing ability to lead (and the death of some of the officers above him) and he soon starts to command an increasing number of men. During the Gothic Wars of 535-554, the defenders of the Gate fought off the Gothic invaders from the gate, hurling down marble statues or whatever they could loosen from the ancient tomb down onto the invading Ostrogoths.

Herwig Wolfram, History of the Goths, Trans. Thomas J. Dunlap, (University of California Press, 1988), p. 139. Now a sprawling capital city, Rome’s city walls once encircled the nucleus of today’s center. A trio of ancient gates, Porta Caelimontana , Porta Esquilina , and Porta Carmentalis , remain as a legacy of these winding Servian Walls. However, as is the case with much of Rome’s history, new gates have been consistently added to satisfy centuries of expansions and changes.

The half-Vandal, half-Roman general is credited with keeping the Western Roman Empire from crumbling during his 13 years of rule, and his death would have profound repercussions for the West. [52] His son Eucherius was executed shortly after in Rome. [54] Gordon M. Patterson, Medieval History: 500 to 1450 AD Essentials, (Research & Education Association, 2001), p. 41. At the end of each book the author informs us of the changes he made for the story, and what the actual facts were. The Servian Wall did prove fortified enough to hold off Hannibal and his forces during the 2 nd Punic War. Herwig Wolfram, History of the Goths, Trans. Thomas J. Dunlap, (University of California Press, 1988), p. 136.
