Rome expands once more.
| 9 B.C.; Drusus does not die on campaign in Germany, and becomes
emperor in 29 A.D. (possibly disrupting Jesus’ crucifixion with a general pardon for all prisoners); his heirs are not insane, depraved halfwits, unlike the historical Homeline Julio-Claudians.

After 400 years of peach the Empire fractured in civil war and barbarian invasions. A shrunken Second Empire was united after two centuries but suffered a slow decline eventually fragmenting due to Mongol invasions in the 13th century. In the 18th century, Hesperia (ex-Roman meso-America) fell into rivalry with Britannia, and, in 1806 invaded Europe with a fleet of steamships, reconquered Rome, and proclaimed the third Roman Empire, still standing in current year 1893.
