The Latins (Latin: Latini), sometimes known as the Latians, were an Italic tribe which included the early inhabitants of the city of Rome (see Roman people).
According to tradition, on April 21, 753 B.C., Romulus and his twin brother, Remus, found Rome on the site where they were suckled by a she-wolf as orphaned infants.
The Thervingi were the Gothic tribe that first invaded the Roman Empire, in 376, and defeated the Romans at Adrianople in 378. Following Adrianople, the Visigoths and Romans were both trading partners and warring combatants over the next decade or so.
The Romans were descended from the Italic tribes, mainly the Latins (originally from the Alban Hills to the southeast) and the Sabines (originally from the Apennines to the northeast).
Vikings traded along established routes with Rome for almost five hundred years before Rome was taken by Germanic chieftains, but they never sacked Rome.
Marching southwestward under their leader Alaric, the Visigoths reached Rome in 410 A.D. and looted the city. By that time other German tribes–the Franks, Vandals, and Burgundians–were moving into the empire.
The Teutons (Latin: Teutones, Teutoni, Ancient Greek: Τεύτονες) were an ancient northern European tribe mentioned by Roman authors. The Teutons are best known for their participation, together with the Cimbri and other groups, in the Cimbrian War with the Roman Republic in the late second century BC.
Romans were originally Italians. But their last part of the empire which lasted many centuries was Greek speaking.
Between 500 BC – 300 BC, Rome conquered the Italian Peninsula and assimilated the surrounding peoples. Since the other Italic peoples were pretty similar to the Romans, the assimilation was extremely quick., Italian, born and bred. Romans of the Italian peninsula always also called themselves Italian.
Until 510 B.C. Before Julius Caesar took control in 48BC, the Roman Empire was not ruled by the Emperor but by two consuls who were elected by the citizens of Rome. The Roman Empire began with the crowning of Gaius Octavian Thurinus in 31 B.C. The Roman people elected Consuls, who ruled for about a year.
Aeneas was said to be the founder of the Roman race (the mixed offspring of the native Italians and the Trojans). The city founded by his son was not Rome but Alba Longa (a nearby settlement that did have strong connections with early Rome), and it was there that Romulus and Remus were born many generations later.
Romulus was the legendary founder of Rome said to have lived in the eighth century B.C. — but most historians think he did not exist in reality.
