AFTER THE PUNIC WARS LEGACY OF THE PUNIC

AFTER THE PUNIC WARS LEGACY OF THE PUNIC WARS Rome began transition from Republic to Empire Empire is defined as A large political unit in which the elites are distinctive from their subject people

Macedonia joined Hannibal, bringing North Africa, Iberia, and Greece under Roman Rule Rise of Octavian marked end of the Republic ACCIDENTAL EMPIRE Conquest of Carthage and Greece byproduct of Punic Wars, not a goal Further expansion similarly

unplanned: Power in Greece brought Rome into conflicts with the successor Kingdoms (Alexander) Continued threat from Gaul IMPACT Empire required Garrisons to solidify rule Legionnaire service

extended to meet manpower requirements New government systems required to exploit new lands FUTURE WARS Number of wars dramatically decreased Politicians worried about a loss

of military virtue Conquests became less common but larger Took longer to pacify Garrisons tied down available forces Politicians blocked rivals SOCIAL CHANGES

New conquests not public land, but slaves still poured in This increased the gap between rich and poor, spiraling many into homelessness Huge estates resulted in slave revolts Most famously Sparticus

Increased benefits of Roman citizenship caused civil wars with allies MARIAN REFORMS Marius was a Roman politician and realized Rome needed more manpower He eliminated land

requirements to join and supplied men with arms Created a standing army Standardized equipment and training Offered retirement benefits TACTICAL CHANGES Cohort became the basic unit This combined a maniple

of hastate, principes, and triari 10 Cohorts became a legion 450-500 men in each cohort Includes Cavalry Still used checkerboard

but smaller gaps to create a more continuous front THE CHANGING ROMAN ARMY Poor began serving disproportionately Commanders began rewarding men

Increasing loyalty = Private Armies Distinction of troops by age and wealth disappeared RISE OF MILITARY DYNASTIES As citizenship and slave revolts

ended, Political Civil Wars started This was an attempt for politicians to gain power and glory Made possible by increasing loyal/private armies These first major conflicts involved Marius and his rival Sulla

Pharaoh Ptolemy XIIIs father owed Pompey Pharaoh Ptolemy was at war with his sister Cleopatra PHARAOH PTOLEMY XIIIS CHOICE If he excepted Pompey, he becomes a master and Caesar an enemy If he sends him away, Pompey and Caesar both blame Egypt If he kills Pompey, friend of Caesar and Pompey not a threat

overthrows the Pharaoh They have a son THE REAL CLEOPATRA CAESAR CONSOLIDATES POWER Pompeys allies continued the fight Forced JC to deal with mutinous legions
