Roman Empire

Post  CicelyS on Thu Mar 27, 2014 7:42 pm

The Roman Empire began after a series of civil wars that ended the Republic. It also started because of Julius Caesar who was declared a dictator. When the empire first started there was long period of time called the Pax Romana which was a time of peace and prosperity. The Empire gave the senate less power and eventually there was the first Triumvirate. Over time Rome stayed an Empire up until the day Rome fell, after going through some truly awful emperors.

Thanks to Julius Caesar who led the Roman Republic to an Empire. He was not the first one to have absolute power but he did help it. The first one was Augustus.
