History and Government of Ancient Rome
Western civilization is traced back from the ancient near and Middle East region. One of the major States that contributed enormously to the western civilization was the ancient Rome. The ancient historic Rome is believed to have been founded early back at around 750 BC. Rome mythically got its name from some two twin brothers; Romulus and Remus. Historical findings state that, Rome had seven kings who reigned for over two hundred years, in succession, Romulus as the first known king.
The ascend of Rome was surely not predictable, but it had several advantages exactly from the beginning due to the surrounding seas that were viable for overseas trades. It is known that the early inhabitants were just ordinary people who kept sheep, goats, pigs and cattle and also lived in prehistoric encircling huts.
Indeed no one could have seen any possibility of Rome from such a nasty start to the world supremacy domicile. The Roman first tribes were three. The Tizienzi, Luceri and the Ramnensi (Romans).The other inhabitants were aliens who had to work as slaves and are said had no civic rights. There are three main eras that Ancient Rome is divided into; Kings Era, The Republic Era and the Empire Era. (Walter S, 2000).
The first administrative system was set that the leader of the state was the King. Passing of laws was done by the people who had citizenship. The Kings were selected by the Senate panel after passing several elimination processes like voting in the United States today.
All the powers were vested on the Kings who had authority to instruct the army and were also the head of religion, while the Senators were to advice the head of state.
The administrative structure resembles most of other western nations to date. From voting system to the appointment of envoys, the instruction to the army and senators down to the common man has great similarities in many modern nations.
