This chapter presents some conclusions based on the various studies of individual warlords in this book, and provides suggestions for further research. It is argued that a vital element in the course of events in the 5th century was a split between the eastern and western parts of the Roman Empire. The power of late 5th-century warlords was also hampered by military and financial inadequacies. There is also no satisfying explanation for the disintegration of the West's military superiority in the 5th century.
