Protistátní trestné činy včera a dnes. Sborník z konference



The paper briefly deals with the process of transformation of the monarchy into a republic in ancient Rome, the key event of which was the expulsion of the last king from Rome. The authors of the article show that this act was not an illegitimate coup or an anti-state crime (high treason), but the removal of a tyrannical king by an aristocracy that was – in her view –legitimate. At the same time, the authors show that the transition from the monarchical to the republican form of government was relatively smooth, while the royal office in the form of two important offices (rex sacrorum, interrex) persisted in the republic.
