Someone with a good working knowledge of Roman issues should review the capitalisation of this article. It seems that this article has a tendency to capitalise and bold anything official sounding. I removed the bolding, which is unnecessary regardless of the capitalisation, but I don't feel qualified at this point to go into the the capitalisation. -Rrius (talk) 16:57, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Someone needs to add some dates in this article, so the reader can grasp better the historical shifts. When was the period of the Roman Kingdom exactly? WHat centuries are we talking about? AND: "Eventually, most legislative powers were transferred to another assembly, the Plebeian Council ("Assembly of the Commoners"). Ultimately, it was the Plebeian Council that disrupted the balance between the senate, the legislative branch, and the executive branch.

Also I wish someone would contrast the functions of the Centuriate and Tribal assemblies better. I'm unclear as to overlap and legislative responsibilities.Lionheartedchick (talk) 00:22, 18 March 2010 (UTC)LC
