How Truly Gallic Was The Gallic Empire? | 261AD-270AD

For a so-called Gallic Empire splitting from Rome, it’s still very Roman. Also, the Palmyrene Empire is also trying to split from Rome itself.



In our newest episode, we pick up from our previous episode examining the rise – and altogether quick fall – of the splinter state Gallic Empire. Yet during our discussion, there is one very clear oddity about this Gallic Empire – it leads one to question, “exactly how Gallic is this empire, again?” In our second segment, Patrick gives us a look at the other major splinter state from the Third Century Crisis, the Palmyrene Empire. Namely a closer look at it’s major contributor, Queen Zenobia.

The A.D. History Podcast explores the last two thousand years of world history in an innovative new way. Join hosts Paul K. DiCostanzo and Patrick Foote as they examine the past two millennia, beginning in 1 AD, and progressing forward ten years every episode until they reach the modern day. Within each ten-year installment, Paul and Patrick aim to share incredibly important, but often overlooked fascinating historic events and figures from around the world in prospective fashion; attempting to see history through the eyes and in the world of those who lived it. By identifying these sometimes lesser known - but in no way less significant aspects of history - the A.D. History Podcast endeavors to take these many disparate threads and weave a fuller, richer tapestry of true world history from 1AD to HD.
