In order to govern the Roman empire more effectively, Diocletian split the empire in two: the east and west. Both would have an emperor and a vice-emperor to oversee their own sections. This split of power was called a "tetrarchy," and though making the then-massive Roman territories easier to govern, it also made the rulers weaker and prone to in-fighting and civil war, as evidenced by the crisis of the third century and the fall of the Western Roman empire to the Goths.
