sep 25, 28 BC - Ancient Rome
Ancient Rome (in Latin, Antiqua Rōma) designates the unitary political entity arising from the expansion of the city of Rome, which in its heyday included from Great Britain to the Sahara desert and from the Iberian peninsula to the Euphrates. At first, after its foundation (according to the tradition in 753 a.), Rome was a monarchy; Later (509 BC) it was a republic; and in 27 a. C. became an empire. The period of greatest splendor is known as Pax Romana, due to the relative state of harmony prevailing in the regions that were under Roman rule, a period of order and prosperity known to the Empire under the dynasty of the Antonines (96-192 ) and, to a lesser extent, under that of the Severus (193-235). It is a crucial element of the development of the West and later also of the East.
