Rome became the capital city of Italy in 1871. In 753 BC, it was founded by Romulus. Initially, Rome began on the Palatine Hill, though it eventually grew to encompass “the other six hills of Rome (Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline, Esquiline, Viminal, and Quirinal Hill)”. The Roman Republic began after King Tarquinius Superbus was expelled in 510 BC.
