494BC - Having driven the Kings out of the city just fifteen years ago, Rome established a form of government previously unheard of on the Italian peninsula: a republic where all landowners were allowed to vote, and elections took place every year.More494BC - Having driven the Kings out of the city just fifteen years ago, Rome established a form of government previously unheard of on the Italian peninsula: a republic where all landowners were allowed to vote, and elections took place every year.But, like all fledgling city-states, Rome had her fair share of enemies around her. This led to an endless cycle of wars that pulled farmers away from their lands.Pupinius was one of those farmers. He had participated on campaigns in the past when the Senate had demanded him to. But Pupinius was also growing tired of the wars that the Senate asked him to fight. It was pulling him away from his home and away from his family.When the Senate came to Pupinius with information that he must assemble at the Campus Martius in preparation for war, neither Pupinius nor the Senate had expected a man there who would propose a radical new notion that would shake the Roman republic at its very foundation.The First Tribune of the Plebes is a part of the collection of Roman-era short stories by Joseph Hunley.
