The Roman Empire usually refers to the post-republican, autocratic government period of Roman civilization (centered on Rome and its successor capitals on the Italian peninsula) from 27 BC to 395 AD.

However, Roman Empire may also refer to:

  • Roman Republic (509 BC – 27 BC), the period of the ancient Roman civilization when its government first operated as a republic
  • The two parts of the Roman Empire:
  • Holy Roman Empire (962–1806) – The term: "Holy Roman Empire" is attested from 1254 onward to refer to the German Empire, which previously, from 1157 under the rule of Frederick I Barbarossa, was called simply the "Holy Empire".
