Hello! We're a few members of the Senate. We're all Patricians, and, in total there are about 300 of us. We remain Senators all of our lives, and we give advice to the Magistrates and Counsuls.
Welcome to the Roman Assembly. All of our male citizens, whether Patrician or Plebian come here. We vote on laws and we choose the jobs that are important for our Patrician citizens. Patricans, because we're richer, have more power than Plebian citizens and our votes are worth more as well.
NOW,LET'S TALK ABOUT THE LAWS AFTER THE PLEBIAN PROTEST...
Only Patricians could make laws, but the population of Plebeians (commoners) was 94%, meaning the majority of the population was Plebeian. So, obviously the Plebeians wanted equal rights. They wanted to be aware of the laws and be able to make them.
We won't farm anymore!
AND THEN THE PLEBIANS DECIDED...
AND THEN OF COURSE,THE PATRICIANS NEEDED THE PLEBIANS SO THE PLEBIANS WERE GIVEN...
We will not fight Rome's battles and wars!
We'll create our own city!
Tribunes: (Plebeian men who could stop a law from being created and defend any other Plebeian in court). Plebians could now create laws for the Assembly, have great jobs like Magistrates and Consuls, and be Senators. They were also given The Twelve Tables. The Twelve Tables had the Roman laws written for everyone to see.
MORE ABOUT THE TWELVE TABLES
The laws of the Twelve tables talked about many issues, such as property, crime,family,theft,marriage and inheritance.
One of the Twelve Table laws was that if you asked a witness to testify and he doesn't appear, you may show up once every third day and yell in front of his home.
