  • History

    Democracy began in Athens in 510 BC.

    Deomcracy was successful and many other city-states adapted this type of government, but most only allowed free male adults to vote. but only if they owned their own houses or owned land.

    This was inconvenient for the men to be always voting at the meeting place. So they picked a group of men who could do most of the voting and the rest only came when their was a really important vote.
