Question Description

Trace how imperial Roman rule came about.

Tutor Answer

School: New York University

Rome was founded by two brothers, Romulus and Remus. Raised by wolves, the two came to found and lead the town, but fell out and quarreled. Romulus eventually slew Remus. Archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest Romans, who were likely living in mud huts on the slopes of the Palatine Hill, created their settlement in the eighth century B.C. The early Romans were but one group of Latin speakers. Other Italian peoples included the Sabine's, Oscars, Sam nites and Etruscan s. The Etruscan s became the first leading nation of Italy, dominating Rome until sometime in 500 B.C. Their culture was the first major influence on the Roman people. Rome eventually revolted, overthrew what would prove to be its the last King and established the Republic. Much of Rome's early success can be attributed to a local climate that is superb for growing grain and its position astride a major salt-trading route.
