As the influence of Rome grew, the Italian Peninsula gradually became the heartland of an ever-expanding superpower. However, even before the legendary hero Aeneas came to Italy, the region was inhabited by many different peoples. Even though these tribes and cities played a major role in Roman and Mediterranean history, they are often forgotten.
