    Roman Republicanism is a Mixed system of government used by the Roman Republic prior to its succession by the Roman Empire. Otherwise, it was frequently authoritarian and had class divide into two groups, the plebs and the patricians.


    Roman Republicanism was created in 509 BC, when Lucius Junius Brutus overthrew the previous Roman Kingdom. Its core values were represented by the mos maiorum (customs of the ancestors), which favored adherence to tradition, civic responsibility and honorable behavior. In Rome, anyone could worship any deity as long as they were as tolerant. He would begin to outline a system of republican government, held by the Senate, which in turn elected yearly two consuls. Due to the failed revolt of the Gracchi brothers, the government gradually became unpopular and because of this unpopularity, when Caesar rose he gained power and support of the Plebs (working class citizens). The patricians feared Caesar so they stabbed him. After this assassination, Augustus Caesar (adopted son of Caesar) killed every senator and proclaimed himself the princeps (first man of Rome) and became Emperor of the Roman Empire.

    Over the next centuries, the Roman Republic began to spread, conquering Italy, Carthage, and eventually even Greece. With this expansion came a more class-based system, splitting the society into Patricians (those of well-to-do families) and Plebeians (citizens of other families). This was not based on economics, but rather solely on heritage. Consuls, the head of the government, would frequently be of major families such as the Horatii, Lucretii, Verginii and Menenii.

    In the last century of Roman Republicanism, the Republic split into the Populare.png Populares Faction and the Optim.png Optimates Faction. This led up to a civil war, and the descent of the Republic into Caesar.png Caesarism.

    The Roman Republic continued to inspire many political philosophers in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, including Machiavelli. Many modern democratic systems take inspiration from Rome, even the name of a Republic.


    Stylistic Notes

    Roman Republicanism does not act like his son, with the exception of their shared militarism, and fervently denounces monarchies.

    He also is rather snobby to "lower class ideologies" on the left-wing. He also will boss around other democratic governments, and will frequently be very philosophical.
