Conflicts between the Thracian tribes, such as the Odrysians in the eastern plains and the Bessi in the mountainous west, were drawing Rome into their conflicts and in 46AD Thrace was annexed into the Roman Empire.

The reunification of Dacian tribes under Decebal and a couple defeats of the Roman armies led to war in 101AD.
