PATRICIANS The upper class wealthy landowners Very small group 5% of the population Chose the kings advisors Controlled the most

valuable land, held the key military and religious offices

PLEBEIANS The lower class peasants, laborers, artisans, shopkeepers Very large group 95% of the population Very few privileges and say Paid most of the taxes and served in

the army. A Republic form of governments purpose is to serve the people. It was established in Rome when the Patricians overthrew the last monarch/king Tarquin the Proud because King Tarquin wanted more power and was cruel. The Conflict of the Orders is when the Plebeians demanded more political rights because the

Patricians were controlling almost everything since Tarquins removal. Some Major Differences Between the Patricians and the Plebeians Patricians could only be consuls or senators, they made and interpreted the laws, small group, wealthy, etc. Plebeians paid the heavy

taxes, were the soldiers, had no political powers, were the labor force, large group The conflict between the Plebeians and the Patricians was resolved over time by the Plebeians would leave Rome and refuse to work or serve in the military and the Patricians would compromise with the Plebeians by giving them some power and say in the government each time

this happened. Rights gained by the Plebeians over the years: Tribunes of the Plebs to represent their interests to the Senate Council of Plebs that could make laws only about themselves All laws were written down The Twelve Tables
