This paper compares and contrasts the roles Solon and Cleisthenes played in the formation of the world's first democratic government.

"The development of a democratic form of government in ancient Athens was arguably one of the most important occurrences in the history of mankind. Certain individuals played a major role in this important development. While Cleisthenes is often attributed the tag of "the founder of Athenian democracy," and deservedly so, we will see that Solon was of equal importance as Cleisthenes, and that they both had much to do with the founding of Athenian democracy."
