Romans: Inclusive Conquest & Loyal Citizens

You need permission to watch streaming videos.

The Romans ruthlessly conquered Carthage and the rest of the Mediterranean region, but also gained the allegiance of most of the people they subdued. How? By giving them citizenship and including them in the benefits of empire, best exemplified by one of Rome’s good emperors, Hadrian. This intelligent, if self-serving, political organization, along with a well-run bureaucracy, helped Rome last hundreds of years longer than most empires. Aligns with McDougal Littell’s World History: The World of Ancient Rome; and World History: Patterns of Interaction: Ancient Rome.
