Napoleon entering Berlin, 27th October 1806. The Brandenburg Gate is a symbol of Berlin, Germany, and to some extent Europe.

A Brief History of Europe covers European history from the fall of Rome to the present day. It also covers late antiquity, the rise of Islam, and the Middle East to some extent, as these are important to understanding European history. Some ancient history (6,000 BC–650 AD) is summarized.

This period of history can roughly be divided into the Middle Ages, and the modern period, and the contemporary period.
