The City was founded in 753 BCE (traditionally April 21st) by Romulus, who the city is named after. The city then went through a "Regal" period where it was under the control of 7 kings, until in 509 BCE the Republic of Rome was founded and from then until the Empire two elected consuls would rule for one year periods.
