Milan was declared the capital of the Western Roman Empire during the reign of Emperor Diocletian in AD 286.

Diocletian chose to remain in the Eastern Roman Empire, with its capital in Nicomedia, and Milan was besieged by the Visigoths in 402, and flourished in the Middle Ages as a center of trade, due to its leadership position on the rich plains of the Po Valley, and the roads from Italy to the Alps.
