Storyboard Text

  • After the expulsion of the last king of Rome, a new period in time called the Republic was born.
  • They also had an advisory body called the senate. The senate controlled matters of much importance such as the decisions of war.
  • There were no longer kings, but rather two men called consuls who held all of the power.
  • There were two social classes in Roman society. There was patricians, who were the land-owning aristocracy, and the plebeians or the common people, who were farmers and traders.
  • However, in the beginning only the patricians could and be members of the Senate and therefor controlling the government. Eventually, the plebeians got angry at this injustice and went o strikes to try and get the quality they deserved.
  • A law was finally passed known as the Lex Hortensia that gave the plebeians the right to veto or pass any law that was put before it.
  • NEW LAW Equality!! This plebeian assembly had the force of the law. It could pass or veto any law that was put before it and make decisions on matters of the state.
  • Although, it was still the patricians who decided the complex matters of the state, which lead to more strife between the classes.
  • The Romans were powerful foes and had already destroyed the Volsci, the Aequi, the Sabini, the Gauls,the Etuscans, and the Samnites. Only the Greeks towards the South were left to conquer.
  • The Greek king was particularly hard for the Romans to defeat because he used elephants in the battles against the Romans.
  • Eventually the Greeks surrendered to the Romans and made alliances with themin each individual city.
  • As allies, the cities were independent but had to supply the Romans with men for their army.
  • In third century B.C the Romans were at war with Carthage, the remaining prominent power in the western Mediterranean.
  • A conflict over Sicily started The First Punic War. The fighting on both sides were hard, but the Romans stood strong. Soon enough, Carthage lost, and a truce was made between the two powers.
