1: Ashley Pirzad Roman Gov't
2: In the beginning,I was ruled by kings. I had seven kings in Rome before that method of government changed.
3: After the 7 kings ruled, my citizens began to rule themselves. That didn't work out so well so then came the senate and the consul. Consuls got advice from the senate.
4: The prefects , tribunes and assembly came next and last. The prefects had the job of runningg all my cities and hearing court cases. Tribunes spoke for the poorer people of the senate. And the assembly were free and grown up people that had the right to vote on certain issues
5: Emperors used the Colosseum to entertain the public with free games. Those games were a symbol of prestige and power and they were a way for an emperor to increase his popularity. Games were held for a whole day or even several days in a row. They usually started with comical acts and displays of exotic animals and ended with fights to the death between animals and gladiators or between gladiators. These fighters were usually slaves, prisoners of war or condemned criminals. Sometimes free Romans and even Emperors took part in the action.
6: This is the forum is where I was governed from. It was built over 900 years ago, however now it is nothing but a few pillars due the the fall of my empire. The forum is much like your white house, where government is run.
7: Your govt in America is much like my govt. We are both democracies. We both have one main leader , in my case, a king but in your case its the president. In America you also have the senate, councils, vice president and more people in power, just like me.
