The Romans have 1250 years of history. They were ruled by kings for 250 years. They were a Republic for 500 years. And then, they were a military dictatorship/empire for 500 years. Rome provided the Pax Romana which allowed commerce, trade and the free flow of peoples and ideas throughout the Mediterranean world 1,000 years.
Roman Law, Roman provincial boundaries, and above all, the legacy of the Roman Republic have profoundly shaped western civilization.
