This paper discusses how one of the most powerful empires of the ancient world was that of the Romans, who broke free of the Etruscans and, over time, conquered the Mediterranean region. It looks at how the Romans were a civilization of strong soldiers and builders and how their peace alliance with the Latins allowed for the rise of the Roman Empire.

From the Paper:

"When Rome first broke from Etruscan rule, its trade between the Etruscans and Greek colonies in southern Italy ended, causing grain shortages and economic depression. Though the Latins had resented the Romans while they were under Etruscan rule, they formed a peace alliance with the new Republic of Rome in 493 B.C. which "held that in wars against outsiders, alliance members were to share in commanding armies and in the spoils of war (" This alliance allowed Rome to strengthen in the wars that followed the forming of the Republic."
