The kingdom of Rome

As you could see in the last page about the creation of Rome, Rome had seven kings. The Roman Kingdom last for 244 years(753 BC509 BC).The first king, Romulus was the founder of Rome. He founded a lot of the Roman society such as the senate and the strong roman army. 

The election:

Whenever a roman king died, Rome entered in a period of interregnum. Supreme power of the state would devolve to the Senate, which was responsible for finding a new king. The Senate would assemble and appoint one of its own members the interrex to serve for a period of five days with the sole purpose of nominating the next king of Rome. After the five day period, the interrex would appoint (with the Senate's consent) another Senator for another five day term. This process would continue until a new king was elected.
