From Romulus and Remus and other rulers shrouded in the mist of Rome's foundation legends, through Lucius Iunius Brutus in the 6th century BC to Lepidus and Octavian, this well-illustrated book guides the general reader through 600 years of the Roman Republic. Time charts, photographs of portraits, monuments and sites, maps, and reconstruction drawings all complement the narrative which is packed full of information about the Rome that each ruler lived in, culminating in civil war and the collapse of the Republic. Separate panels discuss themes, people and places and small tables summarise the biography and achievements of each ruler.

Descripción Thames & Hudson June 2003, 2003. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. The Roman Republic was one of the most civilized societies in the ancient world, ruled by elected officials whose power was checked by a constitution so well crafted that it inspired the founding fathers of the United States of America. Here Philip Matyszak describes fifty-seven of the foremost Romans of the Republic, spanning the centuries from its birth to its bloody death and including the best and the worst of the Roman elite: Licinius Crassus, a kind father and loving husband who crucified slaves by the thousands, or Cato the Censor, upright and incorruptible, xenophobic and misogynistic.Supported by a wealth of pictorial and archaeological detail, these personal histories provide an overview of the development and expansion of Rome, encompassing foreign and civil wars as well as social strife and key legislation. The biographies are supplemented by time lines, data files, and special features that highlight different aspects of Roman culture and society. The latest book in the Chronicles series examines the succession of kings, consuls, and tribunes who took Rome from a small fortified hilltop to the greatest empire of antiquity.
