Ancient Roman history covers almost 1000 years. Everyone has heard of the Roman Empire. Most have heard of the Roman Republic. Some have heard that Romulus (from whom Rome got her name) was the first king of Rome. Ancient Roman history included a monarchy (753-509 BC, or 244 years), a republic (509 - 44BC, or 465 years; our own is roughly 235 years old) and an empire (31BC - 476 AD). This class will give a brief overview of each of these periods in sequence.
