Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And longer time. Other longer-term effects of these imperial collaspes were the Balkan Wars, partially the Lebanon and Iraq civil wars, the WWII-era Central European ethnic cleansings, the Pakistan/India wars. Though the death toll relative to the total population is still much less and the timescale is still far shorter than for the Roman Empire.
