ANCIENT ROME

753 BC - AD 476

The influence of the progressive Roman culture and institutions in language, art, literature, law, government, and architecture build the foundation of modern society.
ROMAN REPUBLIC 510 - 27 BC
The Roman Monarchy (753 - 510 BC) was overthrown by the people to form the Roman Republic, represented by two consuls and a senate. Rome's advanced organization enabled the expansion over the entire Mediterranean.
Rome's citizens celebrated Gaius Iulius Caesar (100 - 44 BC) for enriching and enlarging the republic like no other man before him. He had conquered the provinces Hispania and Gallia, gaining himself enormous wealth and the authority over huge armies. His political career as a third consul led to the Roman civil war, which resulted in the monocratic Roman Empire.
ROMAN EMPIRE 27 BC - AD 476
In AD 395 the Roman Empire got divided at its greatest territorial extent. The downfall of the Western Roman Empire with its new capital in present day Milan was signified by its revolting citizens.
 In AD 476, the Germanic leader Odoacer was the first Barbarian to rule in Rome. This marks the end of Roman Classical Antiquity. The Eastern-Roman Empire is known to us as the Byzantine Empire.
BYZANTINE EMPIRE AD 395 - 1453
The Eastern-Roman capital Byzantium, present day Istanbul, was renamed to Constantinople by Constantine the Great (AD 272–337). His conversion to Christianity played a key role for the drastic change to monotheism. It continued to exist for an additional thousand years until it fell to the Ottoman Empire in AD 1453. Official mints depict Christian and Early-Medieval symbolism.
