The Twelve TablesIn 451 B.C.E the plebeians had gain more political power. They first demanded that laws be documented. This was so that the Patriceians couldn't change them at will. The laws were written on tablets called the Twelve Tables.
The Rebellion!The Etrucans had been driven out of roam. Though this did not mean that the problems were over. The Patricains had created the republic, so they had the power. In fact they had all the power. This left the plebeians with nothing. Out of this hatred came the "Conflict of Orders". This was a battle between the social classes. The plebeians desided to go on strike, so they cameped out side of the city. Without the plebeians the city didn't function. The patricians had to comprimise.
The Republic!Led by a Lucius Brutus a group of patricains formed and drove out the Etruscans in 509 B.C.E. As the Etruscans left so did there form of government, monarcy. The patricains formed a republic. This is when elected officals (patricains only) would govern for the people (patricains and plebeians alike). At this time the Senet was created. They had many jobs like alecting other officals and being judges. In the command of the army were two men that formed a consol.

Rome under Etrucan rule.During the year 616 the Etrucans ruled Rome. In Rome lived some aristocarts that formed a groop called the partricians. These few had some important offeses in the military and church. They advised the Etruscan rulers.
