The Roman Calendar basics


1. The calendar originally had 10 months then January and February were added.

July and August were not added but rather had their names changed from Quintilis and Sextilis


2. The Romans did not use our seven day week but counted through the whole month, starting at the 1st, and only named 3 of those days.

The Kalends—the 1st

The Nones—the 5th or 7th

The Ides (Idus)—the 13 or 15

Only March, May, July and October used 7 and  15 (in March, July, October and May, the Ides falls on the 15th day.)


3. Romans always counted toward the next named day.  Our March 6 is thus the day before the Nones of March, our March 31 is the day before the Kalends of April while our March 25 is 8 days before the Kalends of April.

Classical Roman government can be divided into three time periods


753 B.C.E.

The kingdom, ruled by 7 successive kings.

Romulus was the first king

            2. Numa Pompilius introduced laws, religion and civilization

            6. Servius Tullius was picked when his hair burst into flames, but he didn’t burn

Tarquinius Superbus was the 7th king

509 (alternatively 510) B.C.E.

The republic

Brutus and Collatinus  lead the revolution which overthrew the kings

During the republic Rome’s top rulers were two consuls who were elected every year

31 or 27  B.C.E. The Empire

 Augustus’ victory in the naval battle at Actium in 31 made him sole ruler of the Roman World.

In 27 he was officially proclaimed Augustus by the Senate.


The term Imperator actually means a victorious general, but is used to describe Augustus and the 26 sole rulers who followed.

The Empire in Italy an the West ended in 476 C.E./A.D.
