By Edward Gibbon is , is a 1.760 page book , summarized in 71 pages. The book covers the whole History of the Roman Empire from the first Emperor, Octavius Augustus , in 23 BC, to the dissapearance of Byzantium in 1453. However I have limited the summary to cover the first 500 years of the Empire, up to the fall of the last Western Roman Emperor in year 466, as the history of the Eastern Empire, that is Byzantium , is of limited interest to readers seeking a first introduction into the History of the Roman Empire. The summary includes biographies of the 82 emperors from Octavius to Romulus Augustulus, and many quotes from Gibbon that help colour those biographies.
