One of the greatest civilizations of the Ancient World is rightfully considered the Great Roman Empire. Before its heyday and a long time after the collapse, the Western world did not know a more powerful state than Ancient Rome. For a short period of time, this power was able to conquer vast territories, and its culture continues to influence humanity to this day.
History of How Rome was Founded
The stories of one of the most influential states of Antiquity began with small settlements located on the hills along the banks of the Tiber. In 753 BC e. these settlements united in a city called Rome. It was founded on seven hills, in a swampy area, at the very epicenter of constantly conflicting peoples – Latins, Etruscans, and ancient Greeks. From this date began the reckoning in ancient Rome.
Rome was founded on the Palatine Hill where groups of shepherds and peasants settled in the 10th century BC.
More History of How Rome was Founded
According to an ancient legend, the founders of Rome were two brothers – Romulus and Remus, who were the children of the god of Mars and the vestal of Remy Sylvia. Caught in the middle of the plot, they were close to death. From the sure death of the brothers, the she-wolf saved her with her milk. Growing up, they founded a beautiful city, which was named after one of the brothers.
Over time, well-trained warriors came out of ordinary farmers, who managed to conquer not only all of Italy but also many neighboring countries. The management system, language, achievements of culture and art of Rome spread far beyond its borders. The decline of the Roman Empire occurred in 476 BC.
The construction of cities in ancient Rome was approached with great responsibility. Each large settlement was built in such a way that two roads perpendicular to each other intersect in its center. At their intersection was the central square, the market, and all the most important buildings.
