* OlderThanFeudalism: 1,000 years was the prediction for how long Rome would reign made by Creator/{{Cicero}}, which is probably the TropeCodifier in the Western Hemisphere. (He wasn't entirely wrong. The Eastern Roman Empire lasted until 1453,[[note]]Which means, depending on what you choose as a "start date", Rome lasted as long as 2200 years(foundation as a kingdom), about 2000(the Republic), or at a minimum, a hair under 1500(The Empire),[[/note]] and the Ottoman Emperor claimed the title of "Kaysar-i-Rum" "Caesar of Rome" until 1922.)

* The UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire was, at the time of founding, considered a continuation of the UsefulNotes/RomanEmpire and the fourth and last "world monarchy" predicted by the Book of Daniel (after Babylon, Persia and Macedonia). It was believed that, since Rome was the last worldly empire, it would last literally until Judgement Day. (When it didn't, that's how the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Monarchists Fifth Monarchists]] became a thing during the UsefulNotes/EnglishCivilWar.)

* In ''The Literature/{{Foundation}}'' books, Hari Seldon determines that the fall of the Empire is inevitable, to be followed by 30,000 years of chaos before a new empire arises. He puts into place a plan that would rebuild the empire in ''only'' 1,000 years.\\
** In a curiously [[ThoseWackyNazis tasteless]] regional allusion, the German first edition was actually released under a title translating to "The thousand-year plan".
