THE CHART OF THE ROMAN NOBLE FAMILIES OF LATE REPUBLICAN PERIOD, VERSION 2

Finally! The big re-drawing task is finished! The chart is now close to the final visual form. Only thing missing, and indeed the next task, is update on the longer lines readability. I will add for each longer line additional text giving filiation information at the both ends to make it easier to read and quickly search information from the chart itself.

It has now been 5 years I have been updating this blog (actually two weeks short 5 years). The first versions of the chart saw their beginning still earlier. I think first versions emerged in 2764 AUC (2011) and centered around Porcii Catones relationships with other families.

Finishing the chart has been the main focus of my research work for about 5 years now. With the version 2 begins the next phase of my work that goes deeper into families and their survival strategies.

The chart of the Roman noble families of late republican period, version 1.2

As the work with re-drawing of the main chart is progressing slowly, albeit still progressing one baby step at a time, I decided to publish the latest version of the chart. The changes are mainly visual, with some obvious errors corrected along the way.

The contents of the chart will not see any updates until the re-drawing is finished. For what it is worth, I aim to have the re-drawing finished during the Summer of 2772 AUC (2019).

The chart of the Roman noble families of late republican period, version 1.1

Great news! The big chart of the Roman noble families of late republican period has now reached version 1.1!

This is a major upgrade from the last version 1.0 that was published at September 2016.

There are numerous smaller fixes and updates, but also major updates on many families, as well as addition of the last families included in the project, to the chart.

The families with most updates include:
-Aemilii Paulli
-Antonii
-Appuleii
-Aquilii
-Atilii Serrani
-Aurelii Cottae
-Claudii Marcelli
-Claudii Pulchri
-Cornelii Dolabellae
-Cornelii Scipiones
-Cornelii Sullae
-Domitii Ahenobarbi
-Fabii Maximi
-Hortensii
-Junii Silani
-Laelii
-Licinii Crassi
-Licinii Getae
-Licinii Murenae
-Manlii Capitolini
-Marcii Philippi
-Marcii Figuli
-Marcii Regi
-Marcii Censorini
-Marii
-Mucii Scaevolae
-Octavii
-Pompeii
-Pomponii
-Porcii Catones
-Pupii Pisones
-Scribonii Libones
-Sempronii Gracchi
-Tullii Cicerones

The chart now contains about 1800 individuals (and no, I haven’t counted them, this is just an estimation) and has reached the extent planned for the project.

The next version of the chart will be 2.0, which will have updated visuals for inter-family connections making them easier to read. This update work will take considerable time.

The chart of the Roman noble families of late republican period, version 1.0

Big news! I have reached version 1.0 of the main family chart.

There has been multitude of updates and changes since the last big version was published here in May 2015:

-I have converted nearly all families present in the May 2015 version into new format which is both more pleasing to the eye as well as easier to read with much more information about each individual.

-There has been really many updates, edits and correction of errors in many families that were on the earlier versions of the chart.

-I have added information from MRR into all individuals of the chart, so now everything except those individuals which are still in old chart visuals are based on data of both RE and MRR, making it easy to identify individuals.

-I have also added some last families into the chart.

The road ahead from now on will concentrate into three areas:

1) Bringing last old visual format families into new format. This will include some additional research.

2) Researching some additional families. During the course of producing the version 1.0 I have become convinced that I need to add still some families into the chart to make it a coherent view into the late republican Roman nobility. Not all additional families will have many, or even one consul during the 150-50 period, but they still are important enough for the big picture.

3) Developing visual upgrade for version 2.0. The version 2.0 will include clearer visuals for inter-family relations. It will be a major piece of work and I’d except to start it at earliest next Summer, but it might take even longer than that just to reach into version that will serve as basis for version 2.0.

After the chart reaches version 2.0 I except it to remain as such only with some upgrades into data (filiation etc.) as my research continues deeper into each family. That is why this version 1.0 is so significant: in many ways it marks the half-way mile post in my project.

Updated version of the main family tree chart

Here is the current version of the family tree main chart. It currently holds about 1300 individuals. As I constantly update the chart there are way too numerous little updates and corrections to be listed here, but the major changes to the version published in May this year are the addition of the following families into the chart:

Marii
Mucii Scaevolae
Papirii Carbones
Perpernae
Popillii Laenates
Postumii Albini
Quinctii Flamini
Servilii Caepiones
Servilii Vatiae

family trees december 2015

The family trees of major consular noble families of the late republican period of Rome with inter family connections.

There is still plenty of work before the chart reaches it version 1.0. I have planned to add following families to the chart before Summer:

Octavii
Pompeii Magni
Porcii Catones
Sulpicii Galbae
Valerii Flacci
Valerii Messallae

When these are added, the main bulk of individuals and family trees are added. After this I will start updating the older parts of the family trees into new visual appearance as well as start the second phase of my research – perhaps I’m there within a year!

Fulvii Flacci and Hostilii Mancini added to the chart

Here is an updated version of the chart based on the work of this Summer. Fulvii Flacci and Hostilii Mancini have found their way to the chart now. Also there are many smaller updates and changes. This version will be the most current one for some time onwards, even perhaps until August 2015.

August 3rd 2014 version: Fulvii Flacci and Hostilii Mancini added.

And again, this is work in progress, so there are bound to be mistakes and inaccuracies. Each time I update the chart I try to put some effort into making it more clear and easier to use, but that is of secondary priority untill all families are there, so it will look a bit messy for some time still.

As it is now, the chart contains approximately between 50 – 75 % of the families and individuals of the final chart. During the next year or so I will make preliminary research of the remaining families:
Licinii Crassi
Livii Drusi
Lutatii Catulli
Manilii
Marcii Philippi
Marcii Reges
Marii
Mucii Scaevolae
Octavii
Papirii Carbones
Perpernae
Pompeii Magni
Popillii Laenates
Porcii Catones
Postumii Albini
Quinctii Flamini
Servilii Caepiones
Servilii Vatiae
Sulpicii Galbae
Valerii Flacci
Valerii Messallae

The chart already contains some of these families or parts of them, so not all of them will be totally new.

Junii Bruti and Junii Silani added to the chart

I updated first versions of the Junii Bruti and Junii Silani to the big chart. It seems that Junii Bruti had a bit different family strategy than the Junii Silani had. Brutii were pretty inactive in the political and military spheres whereas Silani had military commands and consulships. Interesting to note how Silani survived to the imperial era.
