The phrase "The Fall of the Roman Empire,? (first used by Edward Gibbon in his study, History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire), illustrates the collapse of the Roman Empire in 476. It is this collapse that really benefited the barbarians who were threatening the Empire with their invasions.
Throughout the first two centuries, the Barbarians were engaged in the violent invasion of the Empire, but the emperors were always able to stop them.
However, from the third century, the empires began to feel the strain, particularly the Rhine frontier.
In the late fourth century, there was a sudden arrival of the Huns from the East that shook the Germanic tribes that had settled in Europe. In 476, after the demise of the Roman Empire, the Visigoths and Burgundians became the masters of those areas.
Meanwhile, the Franks, who had remained in Belgium for half a century, began to invade the regions of the Seine and the Loire. Thus, in the late fifth century, the territory of Gaul found itself divided.
The story of the Franks began with the victory of Clovis. Clovis, the Frankish king, no longer ruled over the Franks, but on the entire territory of Gaul, which now consisted of a plurality of ethnic groups (the Franks, the Burgundians,the Visigoths and the Gallo -Romans). The demographic contribution of the Germans had an influence on the law. The law was adapted to the demographic situation in Gaul. The problem primarily resided with the coexistence of the barbarians and the Gallo-Romans. Thus, one may wonder how this would manifest itself legally. This co-existence resulted in the birth of legal pluralism.
Gaul was composed of various ethnic groups and this brought about the co-existence of different traditions and a unification of the law seemed impossible. There was a juxtaposition of laws being put in place to bring the law in accordance with this ethnic plurality. Here we see the coexistence of two rights: the right of the Germanic peoples and Roman law.
