Nec desistent a cogitationibus dicunt Romam Mediterraneans

The beginning of the Roman Empire was brought on by the Latins. The legend says that it was created by Romulus and Remus, twin sons of the god Mars and a Latin princess in 753 B.C. The location of Rome was chosen because it was a strategic location and fertile soil. The Latins built the original settlement at Rome. They built a cluster of wooden huts on top of Palatine Hill. These settlers were considered the first Romans. The Etruscans were a big influence of the development of the Roman Civilization. The Etruscans took pride in their alphabet and the Romans adopted their alphabet. Around 600 B.C. an Etruscan king became the king of Rome. In the next couple of decades, Rome grew from a hilltop village to a vast city that covered about 500 square miles. Then in 509 B.C. the last Roman king was thrown from power and Rome became a republic. Herald News by Samuel Chappell.
