C.; #1 in the Seven Kings of Rome series; self-published. The history of the Roman Empire reads like a great mystery novel with the ending being the demise of the once great and expansive Roman Empire.

The most important magistrates were the two consuls, who together exercised executive authority in the form of imperium, or military command.[14] The consuls had to work with the senate, which was initially an advisory council of the ranking nobility, or patricians, but grew in size and power over time.[15] Other magistracies in the Republic include praetors, aediles, and quaestors.[16] The magistracies were originally restricted to patricians, but were later opened to common people, or plebeians.[16] Republican voting assemblies included the comitia centuriata (centuriate assembly), which voted on matters of war and peace and elected men to the most important offices, and the comitia tributa (tribal assembly), which elected less important offices.[17] The Romans gradually subdued the other peoples on the Italian peninsula, including the Etruscans.[18] The last threat to Roman hegemony in Italy came when Tarentum, a major Greek colony, enlisted the aid of Pyrrhus of Epirus in 281 BC, but this effort failed as well.[19][20] The Romans secured their conquests by founding Roman colonies in strategic areas, establishing stable control over the region.[21] In the second half of the 3rd century BC, Rome clashed with Carthage in the first of three Punic Wars.

From the ages where there were no defined means of communication and hunting was the primary source of food, to an age where agriculture gave the main staples for food, animals were domesticated, societies were created and then eventual changes were continuously made that led to the societies we live in now, the human civilization has come a long way.

But their sudden decline and an abrupt end had long been one of ancient history’s most intriguing mysteries: Why did the Maya, a remarkably sophisticated civilization made up of more than 19 million people, suddenly collapse sometime during the 8th or 9th centuries? Women were always overshadowed by the men in their lives because Rome was a very patriarchal society, built on a peasant culture and on the old customs of mos maiorum. (47) Quoting Ennius, Cicero said, "the strength of Rome is founded on her ancient customs as much as on the strength of her sons." (48) Roman women might have had it better than Athenian women, but that's not saying much.

They were building an empire and as the legendary H. Romulus killed Remus and became ruler of Rome and named the city after himself. The Romans, with their obsession with laws and formalities, are rather easy to understand for the modern mind.

I was having a debate with my friend who said Greece is older then anything in Asia history. The Circus Maximus was created in 600 BC and hosted the last horse-racing game in 549 AD, after a custom enduring over a millennium. What does his career mean in the broader context of the revolution? By the time the project began, Johannes Postma’s Dutch data had become available (subsequently revised in 2003), as had Stephen Behrendt’s compilation of the extensive British trade after 1779, and also the large and complex Richardson, Beedham, and Schofield pre-1787 Liverpool Plantation Register data set, all in machine-readable format.
