The Roman Republic (Laitin: Res Pvblica Romana) wis the period o the auncient Roman ceevilization when the govrenment operatit as a republic. It began wi the owerthrow o the Roman monarchy, tradeetionally datit aroond 509 BC, an its replacement bi a govrenment heidit bi twa consuls, electit annually bi the ceetizens an advised bi a senate. A complex constitution gradually developed, centered on the principles o a separation o pouers an checks an balances. Except in times o dire naitional emergency, public offices wur leemitit tae ane year, sae that, in theory at least, no single individual wielded absolute pouer ower his fellae ceetizens.
