Roman Empire in 1180 by woodsman2b Roman Empire in 1180 by woodsman2b
Another illustrious member of the Komnene dynasty, Manuel I, was one of the great conquerors of Roman History.
During several campaigns, he fought against the Hungarians and vassalized them.
He also added to the empire many lands south of the Sava river.
In 1180, his death marks the beginning of a new era of territorial losses.
Hungary and Serbia regain entire independence, and the frontier moves back to the East.

PS : only 3 more maps and I'm done with Rome :)

Another cool map - I learn quite a bit from your detailed depictions - can I just suggest that perhaps you can mark a larger part of the Crimea as Roman/Byzantine? I remember there is a Byzantine church preserved in Kerch and it is located in the eastern part of the peninsula... but this is just a detail, your maps are very nice!

Thank you for the nice comments and the faves ! I'm always happy when I see them !
And I'm glad you could have learnt something from the map :)
About Kerch, maybe the church was from a different period and the Cumans let it function normally ?
I've seen that the Cumans ruled the area from 1170 to the arrival of the Mongols.
