[introduction] Ages of Darkness II - Renovatio Imperii
527AD - the year when Flavius Sabbatius Justinianus became emperor -
With Ages of Darkness (AoD) you become a part of this time.
This century is widely considered to mark the end of Classical Antiquity and the beginning of the Dark Ages.
Following the collapse of the Western Roman Empire late in the previous century, Europe fractured into many small Germanic Kingdoms, which competed fiercely for land and wealth.
From this upheaval the Franks rose to prominence, and carved out a sizeable domain encompassing much of modern France and Germany.
Meanwhile, the surviving Eastern Roman Empire began to expand under the emperor Justinian, who eventually recaptured North Africa from the Vandals, and attempted to fully recover Italy as well in the hope of re-establishing Roman control over the lands once ruled by the Western Roman Empire.
Following Justinian's death, most of his gains were lost. The Sassanid Empire reached the peak of its power under Khosrau I in the 6th century.
