Barbarian Mercenaries

Mercenaries were one of the reasons that the Roman Empire fell. Rome's army became weaker because of continuous invasions and civil wars so they decided to hire mercenaries. They were considered as barbarians because they were uncivilized and warlike. Rome became dependent to the mercenaries but they were only loyal to money and their own commanders and was never loyal to Rome.
