    Why Did The Roman Republic Fall?

    Their Constitution was based on working together, since the tribunes of the plebs could veto anything and only the Assembly passed the laws after the LEx hortensia, if there was ever any legislation that was unfavorable to a group then all the government would need to come to some kind of consensus. The problem was after the 2nd punic war all the individual farmer solider's farms had laid fallow and allowed to be over gornw since they could not return to thier farms as long as Hannibal was roaming about Italy. So alot of the individual farms were bought up by rich men who manned them with slaves, putting thousands of rural poor in the mood to travel to rome and become the thousands of urban poor. This led to a bit of rabble rousing, but it also led for the need for change, Which the romans were always agasint intiallty (at least the upper crust of Roman society). Then you have the gracci brothers and Caesar come in and try to change things. But its not so much what they tired to change as how they tried to change it. They broke traditions and caesar went so far as to call teh republic a dead body. THough it was, he seemed a bit out of it to the Romans. Plus during all these time u have about 100 years of civil war, which shows how the Roman constitution was great for a city state of about 50,000 but not the capital of an empire. So basiaclly the Republic became ineffeicient and the men who tried to change the republic for the good ended up making it destroy it self.

    Did Cato Destroy The Republic?

    I think if Cato did not pose the immient threat of prosecution on trumped up charges then Caesar would nto haev marched on Rome, he would have come back, beocme consul for hte 2nd time and then who knows what, done cato's wife again?

    Who Is Your Favorite

    Mine was Pertinax, a man who was no noble and moral that the Praetorian Gaurd killed him b/c he was going to reform Rome and try to stop the corruption. Sadly, after his death the throne was sold for a ridiculous amount of money.

    Gaius Julius Caesar

    i believe the republic could have been saved. Who knows what Caesar would have done if he had been able to conquer the parthinans then come bakc to rome. He let alot of his enemies live and perhaps that is so when the time came to let the republic be it's own again under new guidlines, there would be competition like in the good old days... of civil wars...

    well i think luck is differnt for everyone. I have amazingly odd luck. Like i will not make yellow lights and i wont ever find money on the ground but I will win a truck. So my luck by passes all th small thigns and rewards me with big things. Also most stupid risks i take pay off. SO i am not complaining.
