Yes, I was talking 'bout the Western Roman Empire mainly . . The empire was divided under Caesar Diocletian . . The Eastern Roman Empire was also called 'Byzantinum' or 'Constantinople' ( after Caesar Constantine = 'Constantin + polis =Constantinople ' ) . .

Other historians say 1806 when the Holy Roman Empire was abolished by Napoleon Bonaparte.

The Holy Roman Empire is considered to be the First Reich, correct?

Just as the German Empire was the Second Reich . .
That was the unification of Germany under the Prussians . .

( vid in reference to probably the most famous Prussian , Friedrich II. )

. . and National Socialist Germany the Third Reich.
Yup . .probably the most famous 'Reich' . .
