Roman system of government

 

In 500 BC there were two people in charge designated by the citizens and the were called the consuls. Women were not allowed to be consuls. The consuls controlled the army and decided when to start a war and how much taxes to collect. All men could vote for the consuls but only the rich ones could run to be a consul. This type of government was a republic.
