Description of Tarquinius Priscus

Tarquinius Priscus was Rome’s fifth king, and the first to come from Etruscan descent. His predecessor, Ancus Marzio, trusted Priscus as a friend, making him guardian of his children. But following Ancus Marzio’s death, Tarquinius Priscus controversially elected himself king by claiming he’d received a divine signal.

Tarquinius Priscus’ reign is remembered for his enlightenment and innovation. Whilst notably bringing his native Etruscan culture and art to Rome, Priscus’ creative influence saw swathes of numerous large-scale public projects come into existence, building sites which remain tourist attractions to this day including the Circus Maximus, the Roman Forum, the Servian walls and the sewers maximus. In the political world, he expanded the Senate and created the first five centuries of knights. And in war, he fought against the Latins, the Sabines and his native Etruscan peoples, all whilst achieving great successes in the process.
Tarquinius Priscus was murdered by two sons of Ancus Martius, who wanted to avenge their father.
