- Italy, Lago Maggiore
It's absolutely improbable that there was a primitive form of Republic at the beginning of the history of Rome. The populations of central Italy knew centers with "kings" [or chiefs] and there is nothing which suggests that the villages around river Tiber were different. What is still argument of debate is if the villages got united by an act of a powerful lord [chief of one of those villages] or it was the result of an evolution leaded by the growing economical activity in the area requesting something more "solid" and durable than a group of villages.So perhaps this then is evidence of a monarch at Rome in the seventh century BCE, if it is not just to a Rex Sacrorum.
