South, first by hills, then by a malarial swamp. West by the Mediterranean. North by the Tiber River. 30 miles by 20. 47 states listed in Latium. 12.5 square miles each. Really small communities. No moment where the states are brought together under one head. Tendency is for the communities to split, not come together. Seething cauldron of continuous fighting Greeks militaristic. Early Romans regard fighting as their primary activity Temple of Janus- Doors closed when the Romans have peace. Limited years of peace. Romans have a king, who is the war leader. Have a Master of the Horse, who leads the second war. Kings expelled in 509 BC, replace with two consuls. Sometimes fight two wars. In times of extreme peril, the consuls are suspended and a dictator is appointed. Even he has a Master of the Horse.
