Name: Western Roman Rebels
From Game: Barbarian Invasion
Culture: Roman

The Western Roman Rebels are the Western Roman Empire's shadow faction in the Barbarian Invasion expansion for Rome: Total War. They are one of the non-playable factions in the game. It is possible to make them playable but only by substantial alterations to the vanilla game, or by using a script.

Game Play


The Western Roman Rebels are the Western Roman Empire's shadow faction. They take over rebellious cities and armies of the Western Roman Empire. If a Western Roman settlement's population is very unhappy, it will rebel and join the Western Roman Rebels. The same can happen with armies. That way, a general with a low loyalty rating can become part of the Western Roman Rebels faction along with his whole army.

Starting Position

The Western Roman Rebels do not control any settlements or campaign map characters at the beginning of the game.


The Western Roman Rebels share the Western Roman Empire's unit roster.

Infantry Units

Ranged Units

Cavalry Units


Historically, the Western Roman Empire suffered from many rebellions in its later days. Various generals founded their own kingdoms within the Roman Empire and declared themselves independent. Furthermore, as the population became increasingly unhappy, riots and revolts became rather common.
