Servius Tullius Celebrates Triumph Over Etruscans

Servius Tullius (c. 578 — 535 BCE), legendary sixth king of Rome, celebrates the second of three triumphs in honor of his victories over the Etruscans.

Servius Tullius is himself supposed to be of Etruscan origin and it's commonly believed that Etruscans played a role in the original development of Rome.

The historicity of the kings of Rome, ruling from the founding of Rome by Romulus to the beginning of the Republic, is a matter of debate.

There may indeed have been kings, but surely more than are listed in the Roman records. At least some of those listed are probably combinations of more than one king. Even calling them "king" when they are elected by the senate is questionable. According to tradition, Servius Tullius will be murdered by his son-in-law Tarquinius Superbus, who then ascends the throne. This crime is so widely and thoroughly condemned that it leads to the dissolution of the Roman monarchy an the creation of the Roman Republic.
