Roman Goverment

Trevor Lockton

The beginning



When Rome was a republic people could vote for senators .Then came Julias Ceasar. Most believe that he broke the Roman Republic, but it's all conspiracy. Some believe there never was a Roman Republic and some also believe the Roman Empire wasn't really an Empire. No one knows for sure. Next came Augustas Ceasar. He was the first leader of the "Empire," and created Pax Romana, peace in Rome for 200 years, but all good things must come to an end. That's where Mark Antony messed it all up and created war between Rome and Egypt. Octavian Ceasar versus Mark Antony & Cleopatra fought in the battle of Actium.

Rome & the U.S.A.

Today the ancient roman government is the foundation of America's government.

Romans could vote, and so can we at the age of 18.

We used the system so it must have worked well.

So that makes Rome the creator of the democracy. or a loose outline of one.
