Conclusion I believe that the republican form of government was the most important idea of Rome because the Roman society was very organized in their time with having the republican form of government. Today we use the republican form of government and we were influenced by the Romans to use the republican form of government in our society today. In our society today we have a very well organized government like the Romans did.
