The civilization was led and ruled by the Romans , alternately considered an ethnic group or a nationality. In its many centuries of existence, the Roman state evolved from an elective monarchy to a democratic classical republic and then to an increasingly autocratic semi-elective military dictatorship during the Empire. Through conquest , cultural , and linguistic assimilation , at its height it controlled the North African coast, Egypt , Southern Europe , and most of Western Europe , the Balkans , Crimea and much of the Middle East , including Anatolia , Levant and parts of Mesopotamia and Arabia. It is often grouped into classical antiquity together with ancient Greece , and their similar cultures and societies are known as the Greco-Roman world. Ancient Roman civilisation has contributed to modern language, religion, society, technology, law, politics, government, warfare, art, literature, architecture and engineering.
