When comparing the Roman Republic to the Roman empire they are very different, but also share a few common grounds. The Roman Republic was formed in 509 BC. Once it began to expand it began the most powerful nation in the world (Admin ). However, once the senators, representatives, and congressman started to become more powerful, things started to become very chaotic. Therefore, 500 years later the Roman Empire had been created.
It states in Document 1, that their government is organized by three branches, which is also how the U.S government is organized. The names of ours branches were also the same names of the Roman government. Rome had judges who did similar jobs as judges today in the U.S. They also had 2 leaders who severed one one year terms while the U.S has one leader who has at least one 4 year
First of all, In the passage “Roman influence on american government” it is more about america but has Rome in it. “The founding fathers of america faced a big problem”. They were talking at a meeting and they needed a new government. Then there was a picture that said it was in ancent rome and said the sentence was having a meeting for law. So Rome and America were and maybe still are alike.
The Roman government system was organized into three branches, just like the United States. As seen in Document 1, the three branches were the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judicial branch. These branches
1600 years ago the mediterranean people were doing the same thing that us modern day people are doing now, conquering, claiming, and fighting, but why were they doing this, and who were they doing it too? The Roman empire was one of the strongest empires in history, the “superpower of the Mediterranean world”. In 750 BCE Rome was founded and over time Rome’s wealth, territory, and popularity grew and grew as time went on. They conquered the land of Scotland and Spain, began to control the whole Mediterranean sea, established some colonies around North Africa, the middle east, Asia Minor, and Egypt. They were beginning to expand their empire into almost the entire continents of Asia, Europe, and Africa.
Impacts of Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece on America Most of America considers itself a “Great” nation. Whether this means powerful, intelligent, flourishing, thriving, et cetera, is unclear. In order to explore where America obtained the inspiration for its greatness, I am going to walk through the influence of the great Greek and Roman cultures and Empires (so to speak). These ancient civilizations were among the first that had governments of democracy and sophistication, of elections and thriving economies on a mass scale.
The Roman Republic was an ancient Roman civilization that was created after the overthrow of the Roman Kingdom in 509 BC, and ending in 27 BC with the creation of the Roman Republic. The Roman Republic was created in order for the rich men named aristocrats to gain even more power by removing kings from the Roman government. Soon after, the Roman upper class turned politics into a violent competition in their strive for power. Gaius Marius’ creation of “client armies” led soldiers to become more loyal towards their commander than the republic. This resulted in a commander named Lucius Cornelius Sulla overtaking Rome with his client army and establishing himself as a dictator.
Rome granted citizenship more freely than Athens. Citizenship was granted to free, native-born adult males and females as well as their children and the sons of freed slaves (doc A). Although many people were granted citizenship, not all were given equal rights. For example, foreigners in conquered lands could be given “full or partial citizenship”, and citizens of states with treaty obligations were given “limited rights in return for performing military service” (Doc C). The government in Rome was divided into three different branches: the Consul, the Senate and the Assembly (Doc F).
America is very similar to Ancient Rome, but there are several differences. For example, the Roman Empire "fell" and America is still “standing”. Before ancient Rome “fell”, Rome started out as a small settlement of farmers on the Palatine hill. About one hundred years later, Rome became a republic. The Roman Empire started when Pax Romana or Roman peace began in 27 BCE under the rule of Augustus Caesar.
Rome was a giant and powerful republic and their knowledge is even used today. They met all of their common goods and their common goods were probably the best at the time. One of their best common good was common defense. How their army was structured and what types of equipment the soldiers were given were especially good. Their forts were also very good.
The General Assembly and Senate established a sense of importance in Rome. The General Assembly was made up of Plebeians, and the Senate consists of Patricians. The terms General Assembly and Senate are two of many terms still used in the US Government today. The Romans were led by a king who was approved by the senate and a vote of the people, which is also displayed in the US Government. This is displayed in our presidential elections.
