and Campania weakened, and it was taken over by Romans and Samnites. In the 4th century, Etruria saw a Gallic (Gaul) invasion end its influence over the Po (Po River) valley and the Adriatic (Adriatic Sea) coast. Meanwhile, Rome (Ancient Rome) had started annexing Etruscan cities. This led to the loss of the Northern Etruscan provinces. Etruria was conquered by Rome in the 3rd century BC. Etruscan

Florentine bankers financed the English kings during the Hundred Years War, as well as the papacy, including the construction of their provisional capital of Avignon (Avignon Papacy) and, after their return to Rome, the reconstruction and Renaissance embellishment of the latter. Florence was home to the Medici, one of history's most important noble families. Lorenzo de' Medici was considered a political and cultural mastermind of Italy in the late 15th

Situated at the ''Via Cassia'', the main route between Rome and the north, and within the fertile valley of the Arno, the settlement quickly became an important commercial centre. In centuries to come, the city experienced turbulent periods of Ostrogothic (Ostrogoths) rule, during which the city was often troubled by warfare

The country's second capital city was superseded by Rome six years later, after the withdrawal of the French troops made its addition to the kingdom possible. 20th century thumb ''Porte Sante'' cemetery, burial place of notable figures of Florentine history.

intermarriage between different local tribes. The first area colonized by the Lusitani was probably the Douro valley and the region of Beira Alta (Beira Alta Province) (present day Portugal); in Beira (Beira, Portugal), they stayed until they defeated the Celtici and other tribes, then they expanded to cover a territory that reached Estremadura (Estremadura Province (historical)) before the arrival of the Roman (Roman Republic)s. War against Rome

In 179 BC, the ''praetor'' Lucius Postumius Albinus (Lucius Postumius Albinus (consul 173 BC)) celebrated a triumph (Roman Triumph) over the Lusitani, but in 155 BC, on the command of Punicus (Πουνίκου, perhaps a Carthaginian

Two years after, in 137 BC Decimus Junius Brutus Callaicus led a successful campaign against the Lusitani, reaching as far north as the Minho river (Minho River). Romans scored other victories with ''proconsul'' Decimus Junius Brutus Callaicus and Gaius Marius (elected in 113 BC), but still


Achaean League

the Aetolian aggression was condemned. After Aratus's death, however, the League was able to reap much of the benefits of Macedon's defeat by Rome in 197 BC. Under the leadership of Philopoemen, the League was able to finally defeat (War against Nabis) a heavily weakened Sparta and take control of the entire Peloponnese. The League's dominance was not to last long, however. During the Third Macedonian War (171 (171 BC)–168 BC), the League flirted with the idea of an alliance with Perseus

Polybius was then deported to Rome, where Lucius Aemilius Paulus employed him to tutor his two sons.

His father, Lycortas, was a prominent, land-owning politician and member of the governing class. Consequently

The Romans strip Corinth of its art treasures and ship them back to Rome. During the Punic Wars Sparta was an ally of the Roman Republic

; Romanization With Roman conquest came the imposition of Latin (Latin language) and Greek in official discourse. This was standard for a province in Eastern Rome, but Arabia had far less of the history of Hellenization and Romanization than its neighbors, and the Greek language was little used before its introduction by the Romans. After the conquest, though, Greek was adopted popularly, as well as officially, practically supplanting Nabataean and Aramaic, as evidenced by inscriptions

Arabia had so little that it was able to define itself as Roman and that spurred its loyalty to an Imperial Rome that may never have existed. With Emperor Diocletian's restructuring of the empire (Tetrarchy) in 284–305, Arabia province was enlarged to include parts of modern-day Israel. Arabia after Diocletian became a part of the Diocese of Oriens ("the East"), which was part of the Prefecture of Oriens (Praetorian prefecture of the East). During Byzantine rule

In recent history the city hosted the King of Italy (Victor Emmanuel III), who moved from Rome in 1943 after Italy negotiated a peace with the Allies in World War II. A brief so-called "government of the South" was then established in the town, that became the "capital" of Italy for some months. Some of the Allies

It was occupied by the Samnites around the 5th century BC as consequence of the Battle of Cumae (474 BC) as part of the Syracusan sphere of influence. With the Roman (ancient Rome) advance in Campania, Irna began to lose its importance, being supplanted by the new Roman colony (197 BC) of '''''Salernum''''', developing around an initial

''castrum''. The new city, which gradually lost its military function in favour of its role as a trade center, was connected to Rome by the Via Popilia, which ran towards Lucania and Reggio Calabria. Archaeological remains, although fragmentary, suggest the idea of a flourishing and lively city. Under the Emperor Diocletian, in the late 3rd century AD, Salernum became the administrative centre of the "Lucania and Bruttii" province. In the following century, during
