Hereof, where did the Pax Romana start and end?
Timeline Description: Pax Romana, Latin for “Roman Peace,” was a period of peace and minimal military expansion in the Roman Empire during the 1st and 2nd centuries CE. The period spanned approximately 206 years, from 27 BCE to 180 AD. It is largely considered the “golden age” in Rome.
Similarly, why did Pax Romana start? The Pax Romana was the period when there was peace in the Roman Empire. "Pax" means "peace" in the Latin language; "Romana" means "Roman" in Latin. So, "Pax Romana" means "Roman peace." It started when Caesar was Emperor (ruler) of the Roman Empire.
Keeping this in view, why did the Pax Romana end?
Not all emperors were unfit to rule. The last of these emperors, Marcus Aurelius, was the final emperor of the Pax Romana. His reign was followed by the disastrous reign of his brutal son Commodus (160-192 C.E.). By this time, the Empire was struggling to hold off attacking tribes on the frontiers.
