There are numerous myths regarding the founding of Rome including the myths Romulus and Remus, and the myths of Roma and Aeneas. These accounts were widely read through Virgil’s “Aeneid” and do make for enjoyable reading. Rome really grew from a series of small cities that grew together on the banks of the Tiber River, prospering with its ideal location for trade and cultural exchange.
Though Rome owed its prosperity to trade in the early years, it was war which would make the city a powerful force in the ancient world. The wars with the North African city of Carthage (known as the Punic Wars, 264-146 BCE) consolidated Rome's power and helped the city grow in wealth and prestige.
Adopting culture from many conquered people. Rome grew into a formidable republic established by the First Triumvirate of Rome: Marcus Licinius Crassus, Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus (Pompey the Great) and Gaius Julius Caesar. Through an eventual struggle Julius Caesar became the first great leader of Rome.
Caesar was eventually replaced by the Second Triumvirate of Rome: Marcus Antonius (Mark Antony), Gaius Octavius Thurinus (Octavian) and Marcus Aemilius Lepidus. Through an eventual struggle, Octavian emerged as the undisputed, first Emperor of Rome.
