I wish to go to Ancient Rome.
Sure thing, kid.
Rome was built on the Tiber River in present-day Italy. There were three groups that inhabited it from 1000 BC to 500 BC - the Greeks, Latins, and Etruscans. An Etruscan became king in 600 BC.
The last king was Tarquin the Proud. He was a tyrant and was driven from power in 509 BC
We want a republic! We will form a republic!
The Roman Senate was created, with two groups: the Plebeians and the Patricians.
Only the patricians knew all the laws, and they sometimes abused their rights. So the Plebeians revolted.
The Patricians were wealthy landowners, while the Plebeians were the general people.
Give us an assembly of our own!
In the Republic, the senate elected two consuls as leaders.
The Plebeians formed their own assembly and had representatives called tribunes.
We command the army and direct the government.
The Plebeians forced the creation of the Twelve Tables, a written law code.
Now everyone knows the law! Hi consuls!
