Adam Kuhl Essay 1 Rome; The Republic It is said that Rome wasn’t built in a day. In Hoopers’ account of Roman history, Rome took over 400 years to prosper and fully spread its wings across the majority of Italy. How it managed to prosper through the trying times that occurred in the five hundred or so years before Christ is a true testament to both the Roman ingenuity and their style of government. It wouldn’t be a stretch, by any means, to say that it was the government that served as the mortar for Rome’s vast empire. When Rome first began, it is said to have been founded by Romulus. It seems appropriate that he became king by murdering his brother, Remus. I say that it’s appropriate that Rome was baptized in blood because it would spend the next half a millennium fighting for control of most of the peninsula of Italy. Romulus was the first king and is given credit by both Hooper and Livy to establishing the senate and many other older customs of the Romans. After Romulus, there were six sequential kings. In the beginning, through the monarchy, the right of kingship was passed along by birthright.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
