For nearly 500 years, Rome was an empire. 

When Augustus became the first Roman emperor, some things stayed the same.  Families stayed together in the same home.  Romans worshiped the same gods and honored the elderly, the rich remained rich and the poor remained poor.

Changes: The Senate had no power.  People still elected senators but they could only advise the Emperor.  The emperor made all laws and passed all taxes.  Women got more rights. Augustus was the first emperor, there would be 140 more.  The Roman empire lasted almost 500 years.
