Tarquin the Proud - BCE - BCE (25 Years) Tarquin the Proud was the seventh and final king of the Roman Kingdom. Tarquin was an oppressive and harsh ruler who used intimidation and manipulation to maintain control over Rome. He continually sought out ways to increase his power and influence. Tullia encouraged her husband to advance his own position, ultimately persuading him to usurp the throne. Tarquin solicited the support of the patrician senators, especially those from families who had received their senatorial rank under Tarquin the Elder. He bestowed presents upon them, and spread criticism of Servius the king.

  Servius Tullius succeeded Tarquin as king of Rome (r. ) in some unclear illegal manner. As king, he did many things to improve the city, including enlarging it and building monuments. He also took the first census, re-ordered the military and fought against neighboring Italic communities. T. J. Tarquin and his daughter Tullia minor, who had already murdered their respective spouses, Arruns Tarquin and Tullia Major. Diony-sius and Livy agree as to the main outlines of the story and the interpretation of the characters. This unity continues to the end of the story, as long as they are dealing with the events which lead.

It is the current belief that this was done at Tullia's suggestion, for it is quite in keeping with the rest of her wickedness. [ 5 ] At all events, it is generally agreed that she drove down to the Forum in a two-wheeled car, and, unabashed by the presence of the crowd, called her husband out of the senate-house and was the first to salute him. Both Tarquin and his brother Aruns married daughters of Servius Tullius, the sixth king; both daughters were named Tullia, by Roman custom. Tarquin's mother, Queen Tanaquil, had aided in the selection of Servius Tullius as heir to the Roman throne when Lucius Tarquinius Priscus was assassinated by the sons of the previous king, Ancus Marcius.
