In this paper, the writer argues that if Rome had not transferred power to one man it would have fallen far sooner then it did. The writer discusses the lack of centralized power in the rapidly expanding Roman Republic. It examines the reasons for the fall of the Roman Republic and why it was necessary for the Roman Republic to become the Roman Empire.

From the Paper:

"The ancient Roman Republic, which was established with the expulsion of the last Etruscan king in 509 BCE and ended around 31 BCE with the start of the Roman Empire, was generally very successful, but especially toward its fall was plagued by internal and external conflict which would lead to the necessity of an Empire. When looking at an achievement of the Roman Republic such as its expansion of great amounts of territory, one can see that one main element the Roman Republic lacked was centralized power. This lack of a central power would eventually lead to great unhappiness among the masses and to the downfall of the Republic and the creation of the Roman Empire."
