An infographic depicting the government of the Roman Republic, a complex political system that evolved over centuries. It was characterized by a balanced structure that included elements of monarchy, aristocracy, and democracy. Key features included two annually elected consuls who held executive power, a Senate composed of aristocrats advising on policy matters, and popular assemblies where citizens could vote on legislation. This mixed system aimed to prevent the concentration of power and provide checks and balances, laying the groundwork for later republican and democratic governance structures.
