Admittedly, Vikings did serve as imperial guards to the later Roman Empire.

late game, Roma's enemies with weapons almost equivalent ..

Yes, but way too far in the Middle Ages starting from the 10th or 11th century onwards ...

My point was simply that the Roman Empire continued until 1453, and existed contemporaneously with the Vikings.

Why you people forget about the two important georgian states Colchis(Egrisi) and Iberia(Kartli) those two played an important role in times of roman empire they were one of the few who defeated roman empire and survived Iberian king Pharsman II Kvevi crashed the romans and conquered all south caucasus and anatolia why nobody knows about this ?!
The contemporary Classical authors, with more solid historical background, focus on Pharasmanes’ uneasy relations with Rome. He refused in 129 to come and pay homage to the emperor Hadrian then touring the East, and prompted the Alans to attack the neighboring Roman provinces by giving them a passage through his realm, even though the emperor had sent him greater gifts — including an elephant — than to any other king of the East. In his pique, Hadrian dressed some 300 criminals in the gold-embroidered cloaks which were part of the return gift of Pharasmanes, and sent them into the arena. Eventually, the ancient sources report a highly honored visit paid by Pharasmanes of Iberia to Hadrian’s successor Antoninus Pius. This Pharasmanes, however, might have been Pharasmanes III, Pharasmanes II’s possible grandson.

I'd really like to see the following major playable factions in Rome 2 aside from Rome, Greek factions, and Carthage.
A Germanic tribe
A Gallic tribe
A Briton tribe
A Iberian tribe
A Scythian tribe (better horse archers or something)
A Sarmatian tribe (better contact cavalry than the Scythians or something)
And a Gladiator Rebel faction, just for fun in custom and online classic battles.
I think the Gladiator Rebel faction should have a wide array of troop types, including fearsome gladiators. The gladiators should come in a couple of flavors. There should be the Samnite, Thracian, and Murmillo gladiators. The Samnite Gladiators should be heavily armored (for gladiators) gladiators who fight with the gladius and scutum shield who fulfill a heavy assault infantry role. The Thracian Gladiators should be a light infantry like of fighter who carries a couple of heavy javelins and fight with a sica curved sword and a small round shield. The Murmillo Gladiators should also be heavily armored, but they should fight with either two handed long bladed spears or two handed axes or maces or something.

Of course it would be nice to get the other Iberia in as well, if there are faction slots/development time to spare.

CA said that there are no hardcoded restraints on the number of factions.
