Fighting on two fronts.

Having a meme emperor.

0 allies, low man power, decadence etc..
being a 1000 year old empire in the pretty much modern age does that.

Plague.

should have focused on beating the persians before fighting the persians, the anarchy shithole that was western europe, and the fucking slavs at the same time.
They didn't have the same wealth as old rome to support new infrastructure in western europe.

Jesus Christ you really believe that? I thought this was a running gag. This whole idea was literally debunked over a century ago.

Plague and stretched to thin. The Avars where pressing on the main front, not worth fighting to keep the western territories.

Justinian. Justinian went wrong.

Like an idiot he tried to resuscitate the ancient Roman Empire by conquering Italy, not understanding that it belonged to a dead civilisation and that he should have turned East instead.
