Two of the problems in Ancient Rome that threatened the survival of the republic were invasion and civil war. There were several armies/ legions within the Roman empire, all which had their own leaders. When Alexander Severus was murdered by his own troops, the legions began fighting with one another to get their own leaders to be the next emperor of Rome. A direct result of the feuding between the legions was the failure to prevent invaders into Rome. Carpians, Goths, Alammani, and Germanic tribes frequently invaded and did significant damage. The invasions could have been prevented or better dealt with if the armies were not focused on defeating one another, but rather the common enemies. The time and resources used to defeat other Roman armies could have been combined and used on the invaders. The tribes could have avoided battling over the next emperor by establishing a more democratic was of nominating the next leader by conducting a popular vote. More specifically, the individual Roman tribes could have comprised a council of respected elders from each group to decide who would be best suited to lead Rome. 


***Side Note**** Disease and economic crisis were also prevalent. Disease was spread through water and unsanitary streets. The economic crisis was due to the short career of many of the emperors and the constant inflation imposed to pay military men and leaders.
