They called for laws giving the public land of the aristocrats back to the landless poor. In 133 B.C. a group of killed Tiberius. Later, his brother Gaius was killed. Discontent and unrest grew
5 A New role for the army A change in the army worsened matters. In the first century B.C. a general named recruited soldiers from among the landless poor and promised them land if they swore allegiance to him. Traditionally, the small landowning farmers had made up the army, and their loyalty was to the. After Marius, generals became, and individual generals gained great power.
6 The Roman Republic: The Legion In 107 B.C. Gaius Marius made the a professional, permanent force. Legions comprised of over men, organized into small groups called.
7 The Roman Republic: The Legion The Legion consisted of the first cohort of 800 men and nine other cohorts of 480 men. Each ordinary cohort was broken down further into of 80 men. Each century was divided into 10 contubernia of 8 men each.

19 A new role for the army In an effort to restore a traditional Roman republic, Sulla restored power to the Senate and took away most of the powers of the popular assemblies. His example of seizing power militarily would be repeated, to Rome s detriment.
20 The first triumvirate From 82 to 31 B.C., civil wars beset Rome. Three, and emerged victorious. Crassus was wealthy, and the other two were military commanders and heroes. They combined their power to form the First Triumvirate in 60 B.C. A is a government by three people with equal power.
21 The first triumvirate Each man had a military command. When Crassus was killed, the Senate decided that rule by alone would be best, and it ordered Julius Caesar to give up his command. He refused. He kept his loyal army and moved into Italy illegally by crossing the. (Our expression to cross the Rubicon means unable to turn back.)
22 The first triumvirate Caesar defeated Pompey and became dictator in 45 B.C. A is an absolute ruler. Yet he knew Rome needed reforms. He gave land to the poor and expanded the Senate to 900 members. He filled the Senate with his supporters, thereby weakening its power. A group of leading senators assassinated Caesar in
23 The Second Triumvirate, and formed the Second Triumvirate after Caesar s death. Soon, however, Octavian and Antony divided the Roman world between themselves: Octavian took the west and Antony took the east. Inevitably, they came into conflict. Antony allied and fell in love with Egypt s queen.
24 The Second triumvirate Octavian defeated them at the Battle of in 31 B.C. Both fled to Egypt and committed suicide a year later. The civil wars and the Roman Republic ended. A new period of Roman history known as the began in 31 B.C.
25 The Beginning of the Roman Empire Octavian proclaimed the restoration of the Republic in 27 B.C. He gave only some power to the Senate and became Rome s first emperor. That same year, the Senate awarded him the title of, or the revered one.
26 The Age of Augustus Augustus was popular even though the army was his chief source of power. The Senate gave him the title of, or commander in chief. We get our word emperor from this word.
27 The Age of Augustus Augustus had an army of 28 legions of 5,000 troops each. Only could be in the legions. Others could serve in auxiliary forces, which numbered around 130,000 under Augustus. He also established the of 9,000 men to protect the emperor.
28 The Age of Augustus Augustus stabilized Rome s frontiers and conquered new areas. German warriors wiped out three Roman legions, however. Battle of Teutoburg Forest The defeat taught Augustus that Rome s power was limited, knowledge that devastated him. For months he beat his head against the door and shouted, Varus [the defeated commander], give me back my legions!
29 Emperors and the Early Empire The period called the Early Empire lasted from A.D. 14 to 180. After Augustus, the emperor was allowed to pick his successor from his family, adopted or natural.
