Ancient Rome was a center of trade and wealth in the Mediterranean world. Around 500 BCE Rome threw off the rule of an Etruscan king and became an independent city-state. Because the Romans distrusted kings, they set up a new form of government called a republic.
In this government all free male citizens could vote for representatives to govern them. Members of each social class controlled different parts of the government. The senate was made up of patricians, the upper class, while the Council of the Plebs was made up of commoners.
The patricians consisted of priests, government officials, and wealthy landowners and were considered upper class.
The plebeians were common people, such as artisans, laborers, and farmers.
Slaves were usually people who were captured in war, and did not have any role in government.
In early Roman Republic plebeians could vote, but only the patricians could hold office. The plebeians resented this, so in 494 BCE, they threatened to create a new city with its own government. This action forced the patricians to agree to change Rome’s government. Over time, the plebeiansfought and won the right to take part in many parts of the government.
