According to legend, Romulus and Remus founded Rome in 753 BC. We know  that early Romans were a pastoral people who were influenced by Etruscans. By  509 BC Romans had enough power to establish a republic. Rome was  established on the plain of Latium. Italy's geography made Rome a natural  crossroads and an area easy to defend. Roman institutions show that they were a practical people. Executive authority in  government was based on the idea of Imperium - the right to govern possessed  by the praetor and the consuls. Eventually consuls ruled except in periods of  emergency when they would resign and a dictator would be chosen to be a  temporary executive with unlimited power. Quaestors assisted consuls and  Aediles were in charge of public games and the grain supply. Censors kept up  with demographic matters.  The Roman Senate, made up of approximately 300 men serving for life, started  out as a consulting group but grew to have the power of law. The Centuriate  Assembly was made up of the wealthiest adult males. The Roman government  was an aristocratic republic controlled by a small percentage of the population. Family life was male dominated and when a woman married, legal control
