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.

Power point presentation #2 is titled, The Rise & Fall of the Roman Empire – Summary and contains 26 slides.
The Roman Empire is the name given to both the imperial domain developed by the city-state of Rome and also the corresponding phase of that civilization, characterized by an autocratic form of government. It succeeded the 500 year-old Roman Republic, which had been weakened by the conflict between Gaius Marius and Sulla and the civil war of Julius Caesar against Pompey.
At its height around 117CE the Roman Empire spanned the whole of the Mediterranean world. Its 50 million people were connected by Roman law, customs and military might. The Roman world was generally peaceful and prosperous. There was one official language and one code of law. Soldiers guarded the frontiers and kept order within its boundaries. Proud Romans believed the empire would last forever.
The empire did not last. By the year 500, the western half of the empire had collapsed, marking the end of the ancient world and the beginning of the Middle Ages. Rome's influence on the culture, law, technology, arts, language, religion, government, military, and architecture of western civilization is a continuing legacy more than 1,000 years after the Empire ceased to exist.
