Consules in Roma Antiqua

After the expulsion of the last of the seven legendary kings of Rome, Tarquinius Superbus in 510 BC, two consules were elected annually by the comitia centuriata. With equal power they shared the full civil authority in Rome and the chief military command in the field and their names were used to date the year. Consules were "curule magistrates" and had imperium. They were accompanied by twelve lictors. Consules convened and presided over the Senate and they saw to the execution of its decrees. They also convened and presided over the comitia centuriata and comitia populi tributa, conducting elections and putting legislative measures to the vote.
