What is Roman Kingdom known for?


public business

) patricians to the Senate (Senate of the Roman Kingdom). Chief Priest What is known for certain is that the king alone possessed the right to the auspice on behalf of Rome as its chief augur, and no public business could be performed without the will of the gods made known through auspices. The people knew the king as a mediator between them and the gods (cf. Latin ''pontifex'', "bridge-builder", in this sense, between men and the gods) and thus viewed the king with religious awe. This made the king the head of the national religion (Roman mythology) and its chief executive. Having the power to control the Roman calendar, he conducted all religious ceremonies and appointed lower religious offices and officers. It is said that Romulus himself instituted the augurs and was believed to have been the best augur of all.

modern scholarship

The twins then founded their own city, but Romulus killed Remus in a quarrel over the location of the Roman Kingdom, though some sources state the quarrel was about who was going to rule or give his name to the city. Roggen, Hesse, Haastrup, Omnibus I, H. Aschehoug & Co 1996 Romulus became the source of the city's name. Livy, 1998. pages 10-11. In order to attract people to the city, Rome became a sanctuary for the indigent, exiled, and unwanted. This caused a problem for Rome, which had a large workforce but was bereft of women. Romulus traveled to the neighboring towns and tribes and attempted to secure marriage rights but as Rome was so full of undesirables they all refused. Legend says that the Latins invited the Sabines to a festival and stole their unmarried maidens (The Rape of the Sabine Women), leading to the integration of the Latins and the Sabines. Myths and Legends- Rome, the Wolf, and Mars. Retrieved 2007-3-8. Initially, Rome was ruled by kings (Roman Kingdom), who were elected from each of Rome's major tribes in turn. Matyszak, 2003. pages 16-42. The exact nature of the king's power is uncertain. He may have held near-absolute power, or may also have merely been the chief executive (Chief executive officer) of the Senate and the people (SPQR). At least in military matters, the king's authority (''Imperium'') was likely absolute. He was also the head of the state religion (Religion in ancient Rome). In addition to the authority of the King, there were three administrative assemblies: the Senate (Roman Senate), which acted as an advisory body for the King; the Comitia Curiata (Curiate Assembly), which could endorse and ratify laws suggested by the King; and the Comitia Calata (Roman assemblies), which was an assembly of the priestly college that could assemble the people to bear witness to certain acts, hear proclamations, and declare the feast (Festival) and holiday schedule for the next month. The Roman Republic Roman authors would also use the word ''res publica'' in the sense of the era when Rome was governed as a republic, that is the era between the Roman Kingdom and the Roman Empire. So in this case ''res publica'' does distinctly ''not'' refer to the Roman ''Empire'', but to what is generally described as the Roman Republic. The specific reference to poppies occurs in Livy's account of the tyrannical Roman King (Roman Kingdom), Tarquin the Proud (Lucius Tarquinius Superbus). He is said to have received a messenger from his son Sextus Tarquinius asking what he should do

Empire imperial periods. Speakers would stand on the rostra and face the north side of the comitium towards the senate house and deliver orations to those assembled in between. It is often referred to as a ''suggestus'' or ''tribunal'',

. Between the reign of Tullius and the late third century BC, the number of tribes expanded from 4 to 35. By 471 BC, the plebeians decided that organization by tribe granted them a level of political independence from their patrician patrons Abbott, 260 that the curiae did not. Therefore, around 471 BC, Abbott, 196 a law was passed to allow the plebeians to begin organizing by tribe. Thus, the "

Chief Legislator Under the kings, the Senate and Curiate Assembly had very little power and authority; they were not independent bodies in that they didn't possess the right to meet together and discuss questions of state at their own will. They could only be called together by the king and could only discuss the matters the king laid before them. While the Curiate Assembly did have the power to pass laws that had been submitted by the king

a regional power of the Latium to the dominant force in Italy and beyond. The unification of Italy under Roman hegemony was a gradual process, brought about in a series of conflicts of the 4th and 3rd centuries, the Samnite Wars, Latin War, and Pyrrhic War. Roman victory in the Punic Wars and Macedonian Wars established Rome as a super-regional power by the 2nd century BC, followed up by the acquisition of Greece (Roman Greece) and Asia (Roman province) Asia Minor

. This tremendous increase of power was accompanied by economic instability and social unrest, leading to the Catiline conspiracy, the Social War (Social War (91–88 BC)) and the First Triumvirate, and finally the transformation to the Roman Empire in the latter half of the 1st century BC. It was first given as a special title to Caesar Augustus in 27 BC

historical theory

, such that the mythical war may mirror a half-remembered religious conflict. This argument was first suggested by Wilhelm Mannhardt in 1877 (as described in Dumézil, xxiii and Munch, 288). On a similar note, Marija Gimbutas argues that the Æsir and the Vanir represent the displacement of an indigenous Indo-European group by a tribe of warlike invaders (in following her Kurgan hypothesis). See her case in ''The Living Goddess'' for more details. Another historical theory is that the inter-pantheon interaction may be an apotheosization of the conflict between the Romans (Roman Kingdom) and the Sabines. Turville-Petre, 161. See especially ff. 37. Finally, the noted comparative religion scholar Mircea Eliade speculated that this conflict is actually a later version of an Indo-European (Proto-Indo-European religion) myth concerning the conflict between and eventual integration of a pantheon of sky warrior ruler gods and a pantheon of earth economics fertility gods, with no strict historical antecedents. See this pattern discussed in Eliade's ''Patterns in Comparative Religion'' - Section II (30) - The Supplanting of Sky Gods by Fecundators. New York: Sheed & Ward, 1958. Supporting this position, Turville-Petre notes, "In one civilization, and at one time, the specialized gods of fertility might predominate, and in another the warrior or the god-king. The highest god owes his position to those who worship him, and if they are farmers, he will be a god of fertility, or one of the Vanir" (162). Jupiter's association with kingship and sovereignty was reinterpreted as Rome's form of government changed. Originally, Rome was ruled by kings (Kings of Rome); after the monarchy was abolished and the Republic (Roman Republic) established, religious prerogatives were transferred to the ''patres'', the patrician ruling class (Patrician (ancient Rome)). Nostalgia for the kingship ''(affectatio regni)'' was considered treasonous. Those suspected of harboring monarchical ambitions were punished, regardless of their service to the state. In the 5th century BC, the ''triumphator'' Furius Camillus (Marcus Furius Camillus) was sent into exile after he drove a chariot with a team of four white horses ''(quadriga)''—an honour reserved for Jupiter himself. After the Gallic occupation (Sack of Rome (387 BC)) ended and self-rule was restored, Manlius Capitolinus (Marcus Manlius) took on regal pretensions and was executed as a traitor by being cast from the Tarpeian Rock. His house on the Capitoline was razed, and it was decreed that no patrician should ever be allowed to live there. Livy V 23, 6 and VI 17, 5. Capitoline Jupiter finds himself in a delicate position: he represents a continuity of royal power from the Regal period (Roman Kingdom), and confers power on the magistrates (Roman Magistrates) who pay their respects to him; at the same time he embodies that which is now forbidden, abhorred, and scorned.

(approximate date) In the early regal period (Roman Kingdom) of Rome, it appears that people were at first referred to by one name (e.g., Romulus, Manius). As Rome grew in area and population, a second, family name came into use. By the earliest days of the Republic, every member of a household had at least two names—''praenomen'', and the genitive form of the ''pater familias''' name, which became a fixed and inherited ''nomen'' (name). thumb Romulus and Remus (Image:She-wolf suckles Romulus and Remus.jpg) * 753 BC—The city of Rome and the Roman Kingdom is founded, according to Roman tradition, and is ruled by Rome's first king, Romulus (Romulus and Remus).

Roman Kingdom

The '''Roman Kingdom''' ( ) was the period of the ancient Roman civilization (Ancient Rome) characterized by a monarchical (monarchy) form of government of the city of Rome and its territories.

Little is certain about the history of the kingdom, as nearly no written records from that time survive, and the histories about it that were written during the Republic (Roman Republic) and Empire (Roman Empire) are largely based on legends. However, the history of the Roman Kingdom began with the city's founding (Founding of Rome), traditionally dated to 753 BC with settlements around the Palatine Hill along the river Tiber in Central Italy, and ended with the overthrow of the kings and the establishment of the Republic in about 509 BC.
