-->'''Count Witte''': None of you will be here when [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne this war ends]]. Everything we fought for will be lost, everything we've loved will be broken. The victors will be as cursed as the defeated. The world will grow old, and men will wander about, lost in the ruins, and go mad. Tradition, restraint, virtue, they all go. I'm not mourning for myself, but for the people who will come after me, they will live without hope. And all they will have will be guilt, revenge, and terror. And the world will be full of fanatics and trivial fools.

* A GrowingUpSucks example is when your most significant role models in childhood start [[AuthorExistenceFailure succumbing to the mortal coil]]. The announcement of Music/DavidBowie's death of cancer on 10 January, 2016, is a prime example. And the passing of celebrities [[Music/{{Motorhead}} Lemmy]], Creator/AlanRickman, [[Music/TheEagles Glenn Frey]], [[Music/JeffersonAirplane Paul Kantner]], TerryWogan, and Natalie Cole within weeks of Bowie - and each other - compounds the sense of loss.

* The age of [[UsefulNotes/TheRenaissance the Italian Renaissance]] ended with the Italian Wars of the 1490s, and its subsequent invasion by Spain, France, and the HolyRomanEmpire in the early 16th century. Of course, the invasion of Italy spread the Renaissance ideals to rest of the continent, making it also a DawnOfAnEra to the European Renaissance.

* Culturally, ethnically and linguistically, the fall of the Western Roman Empire created a ''huge'' shift in the general population of Western Europe, which happened far more gradually than the political and military changes, but were arguably much farther-reaching. For most of the Roman Empire's heyday, Western Europe was politically dominated by the Romans of Southern Europe, though most of the region was culturally dominated by various indigenous peoples who could be broadly described as "Celtic" (though that term was invented by Greek historians, and they never called themselves "Celts"). After Rome's legions deserted them, the Celtic peoples of Western Europe were suddenly at the mercy of the far more aggressive "Germanic" peoples of Central Europe, who became ''the'' predominant cultural force in the region within a few centuries. To this day, the region formerly known as "Gaul" is known as "France" (after the Franks), while two of its largest regions are known as "Lombardy" and "Normandy" (after the Lombards and the Normans), and the country on the Northern side of the English Channel is called "England" (after the Angles), with "Anglo-" being a universally recognized prefix for all things English. As a result of centuries of invasions by the Angles, Saxons and Normans, the Germanic-derived language of "English" is now the most widely-spoken language in the world, with the Celtic-derived tongues of "Irish", "Scots" and "Welsh" spoken only by a handful of faithful devotees. English-speakers even still refer to the days of the week by names derived from the gods of the Norse pantheon, which was shared by the Anglo-Saxons. [[note]] "Tuesday" is "Tyr's Day", "Wednesday" is "Wodan's Day", "Thursday" is "Thor's Day", and "Friday" is "Freya's Day".[[/note]]

** Coinciding with this the death of [[UsefulNotes/JosipBrozTito Tito]] in 1980 led to a situation where the one unifying figure in Yugoslavia was gone and no other figure was capable of stepping in without sparking resentment and distrust from leaders of the other ethnic groups. Happening at the same time as the collapse of the Soviet Union this meant the end of Yugoslavia and its own (much more violent) [[TheYugoslavWars dissolution]].
