Kings of Rome
« on: August 26, 2007, 10:18:28 PM »

This is the traditional list, quoted by Rohl on page 480 of "Lords of Avaris" with one addition, by the author of this post: -

Romus (Romulus) (2)Roman753-716
Titus TatiusSabine750-740?
Numa PompiliusSabine716-673
Tullus HostiliusRoman673-641
Ancus MarciusSabine641-617
Lucius Tarquinius Priscus (Tarquin 1)Etruscan617-578
Servius TulliusEtruscan578-534
Tarquinius Superbus (Tarquin 2)Etruscan534-509

Notes


  • Lucius Tarquinius Priscus was originally known as Lucumo (though this is now thought to have been an Etruscan political title);
  • Servius Tullius was originally known as Mastarna - probably identical with the Macstarna attested in the Francois Tomb at Vulci;
  • Tarquinius Superbus' full name is Lucius Tarquinius Superbus.

Rohl's second list, giving each king 20 years (in light of "Cornell's suspicions") from "Lords of Avaris", page 481: -

Romulusc.650-630
Numac.630-610
Tullusc.610-590
Ancusc.590-570
Tarquinius 1c.570-550
Serviusc.550-530
Tarquinius 2c.530-510

These lower dates, Rohl notes, would bring the possibly fictitious line of Alba Longa back into play, though Rohl states he is personally "drawn more to" accepting the traditional dates ("LoA", p. 487).

It may be interesting to note that the Roman sources suggest that Alba Longa was destroyed in the time of Tullus Hostilius. Tullus was contemporary with the last two rulers of Alba, who were Gaius Cluilius and Mettius Fufetius, both given the title of dictator.

Archaeology (if I'm right) would prefer to have the city destroyed by the Latins instead.

Thanks for those Cush, interesting stuff.

I did a bit of reading about the religious rituals of Lupercale some years ago. Discoveries like these really elucidate the ancient texts. Brilliant stuff!
