Ottoman Empire – One reason for the deterioration of the Ottoman empire was due to the military decline. The empire had expanded as far as they could, and with humiliating defeats and new technology from Europe, they just couldn’t keep up
Russian Empire- I think the Russian Empire recession started with “Bloody Sunday”. When the news of what horrid things happened during that massacre spread across the country, it caused an uproar throughout the empire. The revolution paralyzed the cites. By time they got order restored the damage was too far done.
Chinese Empire- A series of humiliating treaties due to several military defeats from the European powers. The Opium War was the beginning of the devastation they would endure Brittan, France and Japan. After the crushing defeat from lack of advanced forces, the unequal treaties were created.
