in rome they had patricians that were really rich and some called plebians that were like you and me.
they got to vote like us for a representitive. kind of like our senate.( wich they had too.) senates used to be the people that were rch until the plebians faught back at them. then juleaus ceasur took over as a fare leader. but then some one killed him and republic ends.

Patrick 3Gallo said...

Well at first the patricians ran the Republic then plebians started getting mad because the rich people only card about themselves.

Soon senators and representatives took over making it fair for all.

There were 2 types of people- Patrans and Plebains. Patrains were rich and powerful. Plebains were poor. At first only ran by Patrains but then as Rome got bigger Plebains. Wealth poured into Rome. Julis Cesar came and made it equal. Then he got killed. War broke out and lasted for 500 years.

There are two types of people in te roman republic the patricians and the plebians.
The plebians had to live in small apartments with no bathroom no running water and one room wich all of the realatives stayed.
on the other hand the patricians had single family houses which had a bathroom had a bath tub and had running water plus they had very little chance of people breaking in because they windows faced inside of the courtyard.

Jacob 4murray said...

At the start there were only 2 Types of people Plebians and patricians. The Patricians Were really rich and powerful but the plebians where just like normal people.Then that is were things started to go wrong The plebians needed help and were willing to fight for it so then Julius Caesar came around and helped out with that problem but then the Patricans feared that Julius would end the Republic so they killed him then a war broke out for 120 years but finally the plebians one then every one was equal.

REPUBLIC BEGINS
I know that their were two kinds of people in rome the Patricians and the Plebians. The Patricians made up about 10% and they were extremly rich. Where as the Plebians made up the remaining 90%
and were the common people.

EARLY DAYS of the REPUBLIC
From this i learned that at first Republic was ran only by the rich people. But then the Plebeians spoke out against the power of the Patricians. So they demanded more rights for them. The reason they did this was because they were having a hard time surviving.

WARS WTIH CARTHAGE
Cathage was a large city state located in Northern Africa. It had great power and had a pewerful millitary. Rome fought carthage in 3 wars that took all of 120 years. These were called, "Punic Wars". What's surprising is that rome won all of the wars with Carthage.

REPUBLIC ENDS
Weath came into rome and the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. Home and lots of land were destroyed in the wars....MORE TO COME

hi hi
when the republic began there were two kinds of people. The patricians(there was only 10% of people that were patricians) and the plebians( the rest were plebians so 90%).the republic started after the romans ran the etruscans out. the citizens of the republic could vote and chose leaders. the leaders of the roman republic were called represntatived(sorry if i spelled that wrong i had to get the guide from macy) and the representatives served in the governing body called the senate.
part 2.at first they would only allow patricians to be senates. every two years two patricians would be choosen to be as consuls

I know that the there were two types of people patricions who were really rich and powerful and plebians who were common people.

I also know that the patricians ruled the Republice. Each year 2 patricions were chosen as consuls. they would yell VETO if they did not want something to happen.

lastly I know Julius Caesar reduced slaves and increased jobs. He was also murdered by patricians because they thought he would end the republic because he was increasing jobs and making the poor wealthy. Rome also won all wars with Carthage. The Carthage wars lasted 120 years.

EARLY DAYS OF THE REPUBLIC

Alex 3Wilde said...

In Ancient Rome there were two types of people Patricians and Plebians. The Patricians were the ones that ruled Ancient Rome just because they were wealthy. As Rome got bigger the Plebians spoke out against the power of the Patricians because the Patricians didn't care about the Plebians, they just wanted to get richer. Rome fought Carthage in 3 wars that lasted 120 years. Rome won all of them. These wars were called the Punic Wars. Wealth poured into Rome. The Rich got Richer and the Poor got Poorer. Eventually Julius Caeser came along and became the leader of Rome. He was a great ruler he made everything fair. Caeser was eventually killed and the republic ended. Which started the Civil War.

There were two types of people in ancient rome. The patricians who were powerful and rich and the plebians who were normal average citizens. Etruscans were the ones to establish a republic. All of the citizens in the republic had the right to choose leaders. They also had the right to vote.

REPUBLIC BEGINS: The Republic began with two types of people: Patricians and Plebians. Patricians are people who are rich, and very wealthy. They made up 10 percent of the Republic.

The leaders of the republic were called representatives. The representatives served in the senate.

As Rome got bigger Plebians spoke out against the power of the Patricians. Plebians demanded more rights because they were having a hard time surviving. Meanwhile the Senate had to listen to these demands: Appointing men to protect the rights of the Plebians. This was called a tribune. Tribunes could stop the action of the senate by yelling veto.

Andrew 8Breitzman said...

REPUBLIC ENDS: The ending of the republic started when wealth poured into Rome. The result of that is that the rich got richer, and the poor got poorer. Homes and land were devastated by war, which led to rival leaders leading their armies against each other. They gained great wealth and power by leading conquests. The most famous conquest was Julius Caesar. He conquered many lands and became ruler of rome. He also reduced slaves and increased jobs. But, the increase of power angered Patricians, because they feared Ceasar would end republic. So, Patricians killed Caesar and the Civil War broke out. The republic ends and the civil war lasts 500 years.

there were two kinds of people Patrans and Plebains. patrans were rich and the plebains were pour. there was a guy named julius caesar and he thought that the plebains should have more rights. i know that the plebains would also shout veto if they disagreed. i think

Lydia pd9 said...

3. Repulic Ends- Wealth poured into Rome. The result is the rich get richer and the poor get poorer . Homes and lands were now devistated by war. Then Julius Caesar came to rule he was very famous. Caesar was killed, civil war broke out, and the republic that had lasted 500 years met it's downfall.

evan 3wieser said...

Rebublic Begins-
There were two types of people in the roman republic there was the patricians who were very rich and powerful that controled most of the goverment but they only made up 10% of roman society. The other kind of people were the plebians or the citizens that were not rich and powerful (this does not mean there poor)they made up about 90% of roman soceity. In the early days of rome a people called the etruscans ruled over rome and her people the etruscans were very skilled builders and taught the romans how to build aquaducts (aquaducts are used to transport water through a city) but a man named Judius Brutius swore he would overthrow the etruscans so he kept to that promise anddrove the etruscans out of rome after this shift in power the roman pepole established a republic. In a republic citizens had the right to vote and choose leaders. The leaders of the republic were the reprisenitives (the reprisenitives were all patricains) these represenitives served in a governing body known as the senate.

Early Days of the Republic-
When the romans adopted a republic as there form of goverment it was only ruled by the patricians because all the pepole who served in the senate were patritions leaving the plebians without representation.Every year in the senate two patricians were chose as consuls the duty of a consul was to manage the army and if one consul disagreeded with desicion of the other he had the authority to stop it.In a time of great emergency such as war one consul would become that of a dictator because he would have complete control of all matters with rome. The early days of the rebublic had many important events one of these includes the war with carthage there were actually three wars with carthage these were called the punic wars overall the duration of these three wars lasted 120 years.The second punic war was a very gallent war for both parties it is so because a general from carthage by the name of hannibal crossed the alps on elephants to surprise rome and while this campian was proceeding another was as well scipio a roman general was going to carthage just as hannibal was doing himself and when hannibal heard of the attack he was forced to retraet home to save carthage.

Republic Ends-
After the wars with carthage great wealth poored into rome so the rich got richer and the poor got poorer.Because of this turmoil rival leaders in rome led armies to attack each other.Julius ceaser concored many lands for rome gaining much wealth and power in the procces because of this he became leader of rome. Even though his rise to power was through military conquest he was not a pushover reduced the number of sevents in rome and also crated many more jobs for his pepole. Over time ceaser became a very powerfull individual this angered the patricians because they feared that he would end the republic so they ceasar killed with a stab in the back (litterally) in this chain of events a civil war breaks out in rome this lasts 500 years and so ends the republic.

hope your satisfied EVAN OUT! (=

Keenan 6E. said...

Early days
A consul is a person who manages the army and can veto eachother.
In time of emergency one consul was chosen as a dictator. the plebians eventualy spoke up for more rights because they had a hard time surviving. So they apointed men to be tribunes. A tribune is a defender of the plebian rights and can veto if the senat goes past the plebian rights.

Republic ends
The republic ends after wealth purs into Rome so the rich get richer and the pour get pourer. homes and land were devistated. The only way to gain power was to Lead a conquest. The most famous person for that was Julius Ceaser. He quonqered many lands and became the ruler of rome. So he reduced the # of slaves and increased jobs. The patricians got mad fearing that he would end the republic. So they kill him and civil war broke out so the republic ends. after a 500 year rule of Rome.

brad 6taylor said...

REPUBLIC ENDS

When the republic ended alot of wealth poured into rome. Since alot of wealth was pouring into, the rich people got richer and the poor got poorer. Back then you could get money by doing conquests. The most famous person was Julius Caesar. The patritians were angered by his power and killed him which started them "time of peace".

Meikayla 3Wojciechowski said...

First of all I want to know is that picture real?

Rome simiar to other civilizations because it has a major river and that river is called the Tiber River. Rome is similar to Greece beacause they depend on a major sea too, and the two seas are The Tyrrhenian Sea, and Mediterranean Sea. Rome is different to other cicilizations because it depends on both a river and a sea, or two, and it is not a country.

Lucas 4Chmela said...

Rome begins
Patricians were very wealthy people and made up 10% of Rome. Plebeians common people today who made up 90% of Rome. After Rome drove out the Etruscan they established a republic. Citizens of the republic have the right to vote, and choose leaders. Representatives were leaders of the Roman republic and also served in the governing body called the senate.

Early Days of the Republic
At first the Republic was all patricians and so was the senate. Each year two patricians chosen as Consuls. A Consuls manages army and can veto each other. In time of emergency one consul appointed in charge called a dictator. As Rome got bigger plebeians spoke out against patricians and demanded more rights. The senate listened and appointed man to protect the rights or the plebeians called a tribune. Tribunes could stop the action of the Senate by yelling Veto.

Republic ends
Wealth poured into Rome the result was the rich got richer and the poor got poorer. Homes and land were devastated by war=Rival leaders led armies against each other. They gained great wealth and power by leading, most famous Julius Caesar, Conquered many lands. Became ruler of Rome reduce slaves and Increased jobs. Increase of power angered patricians they feared Caesar would end Republic. Caesar killed the Civil war broke out and repubic ended it lasted 500 years.

Rachael 4Horner said...

In Rome there is two kinds of people called: Patricians that made up 10% of the wealthy peopl which means like rich and the other type of person is Plebians which made up about 90% of the people. What makes me wonder about Rome is that I dont know what kind of things they depended on for the culture or even anything.

SAVANNA said...

There were only two diffrent types of people the Plebains and the Patrains. Plebians were poor. Patrans were wealthy and powerful. At first they onnly ran by Patrains but then as Rome got bigger Plebains. Wealth poured into Rome. Julis Cesar came and made everything equal. Then he got killed and died. War broke out and lasted for five hundred years.
