The Republic


  • When the last king had been overthrown in 509 BC, Rome became a republic. Power was held by the rich families. They met together in the senate and were called senators. The senate was the main law making group in Rome. Each year, two senators were elected as consuls to run the city. In an emergency, the two consuls chose one man to be a dictator. Woman were not allow to take part. Other man were elected as magistrates. Some helped the consuls.
However, there was often rivalry between the wealthy families. These families were supported by their followers or clients. Many poorer citizens, called plebeians, were not happy. They did not own much land and were often in debts. In the 450 BC, plebeians took action to have Roman laws property written down. These were called The Twelve Tables. In 492 BC, some plebeians were appointed as tribunes .
