WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT UNIT 2 Ancient Greece had numerous city-states or poleis, and many of these cities had a different governmental system to rule over its people; However, as time progressed, the power shifted between the aristocrats and the people. In this essay, we will analyze the various types of government systems that were used during Ancient Greece, notably, oligarchy, aristocracy, monarchy, tyranny, and democracy. Generally speaking, as time progressed, Ancient Greece shifted from a single ruler, i.e., monarchy, to more of democracy, i.e., rule of the people. Firstly, the word monarchy originates from the Greek words monos and arkhein . This rule is in the form of which one king leads the people, and his power is inherited (Kokemuller, n.d., 2). Monarchs do share the power with the people, which means they have absolute rein and control over the citizens, whereas, the king makes all the decisions.

    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.
