Empires always crumble!

 When historians say that an empire fell, they mean that the central state no longer exercised its broad power. This happened either because the state itself ceased to exist or because the state’s power was reduced as parts of the empire became independent of its control. Because empires are large and complex, when historians talk about the fall of an empire, they are typically talking about a long process rather than a single cause!

I remember Perth hosted the British Empire and Commonwealth Games in 1962 But the name of the games for Brisbane hosting them in 2018 had changed to the Commonwealth Games In the 56 years both the names of British and Empire had been removed.. so when did the British Empire finish?

Some of the broad factors that historians use to help explain imperial collapse are:
  • Economic issues
  • Social and cultural issues
