Usually have powerful or rich family relatives. If you are born a slave then you probably will never even make it close to having a high social slandered. Many Romans were just working hard to get by. Slaves made little to no money and some had no home. The main way for people to get ahead was for them to learn a skill. If a worker could learn a craft then his income could rise to two or three times compared to a unskilled worker. It was very hard to get a higher place in society.

This article is about the Roman form of government called a Republic. It was copied by countries for years. The government of the United States is partly based on the Romans Republic system. It started when the Romans beat their enemies 509 B.C. That was more than 2,500 years ago! The Etruscans had ruled over the Romans for hundreds of years. Once the Romans were free of the Etruscans they started a republic, a government in where citizens elected representatives to rule.
