Founding of Rome (753 BC)
Romulus (753-715) founded Rome at the foot of the Palatine claiming kingship. To him is
attributed the founding, the invitation to all to become Roman citizens (convicts, etc.), and the
infamous rape of the Sabine women (cf. Livy).
The leges regiae (""royal laws"") were early Roman laws, which classical historians, such as Plutarch, mentioned had been introduced by the Kings of Rome.Though sometimes questioned, scholars generally accept that the laws (or their ultimate sources) originated very early in Roman history, even as early as the period of the Roman Kingdom. For example, recent research has discovered previously unknown fragments quoted by ancient writers and some changes have been made about attribution to the various kings.The position of the king during the entire Regal period was that of a political, military, religious, and judiciary chief of the community, even if the actual duties were delegated and entrusted to his many auxiliaries.
