Old map Rome. Old Rome map (Lazio - Italy) to print. Old Rome map (Lazio - Italy) to download. The Roman Empire was split again in 395 AD upon the death of Theodosius I, Roman Emperor in Constantinople, never again to be made whole (see old Rome map). He divided the provinces of old Rome up into east and west, as it had been under Diocletian tetrarchy over a century earlier, between his two sons, Arcadius and Honorius.
It was not the first time the old Rome had been officially divided as its shown in old Rome map. Most famously, around AD 285–293, Diocletian had carved it into four parts, creating what later became known as the Tetrarchy. Theodosius, though, did a more thorough and permanent job, even if he had not intended to. After him, there were forever two Roman empires, with very different futures.
After the death of the Roman emperor Theodosius I (347–395), the old Rome was divided into a western and an eastern half, each of which was ruled by its own emperor. The eastern Roman emperor reigned in Constantinople (formerly Byzantium, currently Istanbul), while the western Roman emperor resided for a time in Milan, and at other times in Rome and Ravenna as its mentioned in old Rome map.
