Abstract

Cloelia lived during the sixth century at a time when women had no rights of which to speak. Men exclusively dominated all roles in government and society. Women seldom dared to step outside the pre-ordained boundaries that had been set for them, and, when they did, they often regretted it because of the backlash they received. Before Rome became a great empire, in its early beginnings, Cloelia broke all the society norms and disregarded the role that her countrymen expected her to play, in favor of the well-being of herself and the women with her. She lived in Rome which had not yet found its footing and struggled to survive in the vicious world of those vying for world domination. Many imperials set their eyes on Rome as a prize to add to their territory, and, as a result, the infant Roman population endured numerous military attacks. Yet, Rome did not fall. One after the other, dictators with large military advantages encountered an intangible force they had not entered into their strategic calculations: heart.
