What was denoted by the ten horns?


"And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise." Verse 24.
NOTES - The Roman Empire was broken up into ten kingdoms between the years AD. 351 and
AD. 476.
"The historian Machiavelli, without the slightest reference to this prophecy, the following list of the nations
which occupied the territory of the Western Empire at the time of the fall of Romulus Augustulus (AD.
476), the last emperor of Rome: The Lombards, the Franks, the Burgundians, the Ostrogoths, the
Visigoths, the Vandals, the Heruli, the Suevi, the Huns, and the Saxons: ten in all.
Amidst unceasing and almost countless fluctuations, the kingdoms of modern Europe have from
their birth to the present day averaged ten in number. They have never since the breaking up of old Rome
been united into one single empire; they have never formed one whole even like the United States. No
scheme of proud ambition seeking to reunite the broken fragments has ever succeeded; when such have
arisen, they have been invariably dashed to pieces.
"And the division is as apparent now as ever. Plainly and palpably inscribed on the map of Europe
this day, it confronts the skeptic with its silent but conclusive testimony to the fulfillment of this great
prophecy." - 'The Divine Program of the World's History," by H. Grattan Guinness, pages 318-321.
