Due to internal struggle, Rome was divided among ten barbarian tribes: 1) Burgundians, 2) Visigoths, 3) Franks, 4) Lombards, 5) Suevi, 6) Alemanni, 7) Anglo-Saxons, 8) Heruli, 9) Vandals, 10) Ostrogoths. Seven of them became Western European countries: 1) Burgundians become Switzerland, 2) Visigoths become Spain, 3) Franks become France, 4) Lombards become Italy, 5) Suevi become Portugal, 6) Alemanni become Germany, 7) Anglo-Saxons become Britain. The other three: Heruli, Vandals, Ostrogoths were destroyed.

NOTE: As the ten horns represent ten kings or kingdoms (Daniel 7:24), 'another little horn' represents another kingdom that was little, especially in comparison to the other ten kingdoms. This little kingdom came up among the ten kingdoms, which were in the territory of Rome, which is Western Europe.

5. What is the meaning of 'being plucked up by the roots'?
Read:  2 Chronicles 7:19-21; Psalm 52:2-5; Jeremiah 12:17
But if they will not obey, I will utterly __________ up and __________ that nation, saith the Lord. (12:17)

Read: Daniel 7:24  
And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and __________ shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
