- ​When the people of Rome freed themselves from the shackles of their tyrannical monarchy in approximately 509BCE, in its place a republic took hold, supposedly one which would give a better life for the citizens of Rome.

This difference in fortunes led to a period of instability in early Rome known as the ‘conflict of the orders’, characterised by a mistrust between the two social classes within Rome, and resulting in a slow-moving concession of power towards the plebeian class....   [tags: Ancient Rome, Roman Empire, Patrician]
