Honorius was Western Roman Emperor, while his brother Arcadius was Eastern Emperor from 395AD. The reign was troubled by ongoing barbarian hostilities in Gaul, Italia and Hispania. He based his capital in Ravenna from 401AD and in 410AD Rome was sacked for the first time in over 800 years, by Visigoths. Because of this he famously called for the withdrawal of Roman troops from Britain in 410AD, causing the collapse of law, order and society, plunging Britain in to the Dark Ages.
