Lucius Cornelius Sulla was a prominent figure in the late republic of Ancient Rome, rising to power through establishing allies and his military accomplishments. As a member of the patrician class Sulla rose to power through the Roman political ladder (Cursus Honourum). Sulla was the victor of the social war, conducted war against the Mithridates and headed the first civil war in Roman history against Marius. Through his military accomplishments, he gained support from the senate and was later elected consul and then transitioned into dictatorship. He became a well-known dictator in 82 BC where he established a series of governmental reforms altering Rome’s political system.
He overcame many challenges to create the Roman Empire.Walking down the street everybody.If you 'd like The Republic was a group of patricians elected by the Plebeians, the common citizens. The republic did not have enough power for such a vast amount of land. It was corrupt by Rich business owners. They bribed the senate and the consuls to make taxes for their company so they would get even more money. The senators and consuls make up the republic.

Using keen strategies of pleasing the public, unifying the people and utilising an effective army the Romans controlled a massive population and land span, creating an environment for cultivation and resulting in a legacy which has imprinted upon millions of us living
“As we all know the Roman Empire, big empires go down if the borders are not well-protected”- (Mark Rutte). This quote was chosen because it says that even big empires go down if they are not well protected. One example of this was The Roman Empire, it was a big empire and was the most extensive political and social structured in western civilization, but since they weren´t well protected it fell. The Ancient Roman Army is different from the Roman´s Army nowadays. One example of this is the Roman Army, back then they weren’t allowed to marry while they were serving the army, and nowadays they are free to marry and free to have their own rights.
The ancient Western world was impacted by many prominent individuals, who helped shape Western Civilization to great lengths. One such prominent figure was Julius Caesar (100 BC-44 BC). A Roman statesman, an army general and an illustrious author, Caesar had massive influence on Rome. As the last leader of the Roman Republic; he combined physical power with mental power to rule over Rome, albeit for a relatively short time, greatly impacting events that culminated in the Roman Republic’s demise and the ushering in of the vast Roman Empire. Caesar’s broad knowledge in political matters and military strategy enabled him to become a great leader, leaving a lasting legacy for Rome.
During the decline of the Roman Republic , the Senate became the effective governing body of the Roman State. A certain circle of powerful or wealthy families, which consisted of patricians and plebeians, controlled the Senate. The patricians were a group of people who were known to be the wealthiest and most favored by the kings. The plebeians, on the other hand, were people who were typically poorer, but in some cases gained more wealth than the patricians. Cicero, a man also known as a “novus homo” or “new man”, was a patrician.
In addition to a sense of humor, Augustus possessed intelligence, ruthlessness, and political savvy— traits which enabled him to craftily legitimize his autocratic rule under the forms of traditional republican law, and establish the legal, political, and cultural foundations for an empire that would persist for the next 1500 years. The Rise of Octavian Augustus, born Gaius Octavius, had a relatively unpromising start in life. His paternal side, was the wealthy but politically undistinguished, Octavii family, and his father died in 61 BCE before Octavius was four. At the time, Rome was engulfed in a protracted civil war between power-hungry factions, one of which was led by his maternal great-uncle, Julius
For many Dominicans they did not do much to go against their country. There were many things that fit the typical Dominican way of life, like how men held all power and were not challenged by women (Vega 1). People were used to having men in high powered positions and there were not many occasions where women wanted to hold that same power. Many women missed opportunities because they lacked an education. Normally men got a better education than women did so they were more qualified for these higher positions.
Since Violets family is in the lower class, she is the only family member that has a feed because they targeted to “everyone” but they only end up with the wealthy or someone in Violet’s rare case. Many lower class people are sticking with undesired jobs (garbage, cleaning, etc.) because most cannot afford the feed. Those with the feed have the advantage over those without the feed in society. “You try to have fun like a normal person…just for one night you want to live…” (Anderson 53).
We have never been placed in a situation like theirs’ and so our opinion will be biased, but we are all still humans and we know how feelings get easily affected. Celebrities already go through a lot and they would love the support, and whether you think they’re overpaid or not, we should remember that we’re all equal. Just because they happen to get more money doesn't mean they’re better, nor does it mean that they’re

The Consul was responsible for the day to day affairs of the Roman state and also was accountable for its military. This system is not unlike the current American system wherein the President fulfills very much the same function. With his election as Consul in 107 BC, and his subsequent appointment as commander of the Roman legions in Numidia, Marius faced a difficult challenge. The Germanic Tribes of the Cimbri and Teutons had invaded Roman Gaul and defeated large Roman armies sent to handle them. Various wars on the frontier had depleted Rome’s manpower base especially in Italy, where once whole legions could be mustered in a matter of days.

Plebeians were important to Rome because they constitute the majority of the population who do menial jobs, go to farm and were never allowed to serve in the senate Today, the term plebeian is synonymous with lower class. In early Rome, the plebeians (also known simply as plebs) may have been that part of the Roman population whose origin was among the conquered Latins (as opposed to the Roman conquerors). Plebeians were contrasted with the patrician nobility. In the period of the early Roman Republic, membership in the Senate may have been denied to the plebeians, and restricted to the patricians. Plebeians were the working class of Ancient Rome.
