The History of Rome (Books from the Foundation of the City) is a monumental history of ancient Rome, written between 27 and 9 BC by the historian Titus Livius. The work covers the period from the legends concerning the arrival of Aeneas and the refugees from the fall of Troy, to the city's founding in 753, the expulsion of the Kings in 509, and down to Livy's own time, during the reign of the emperor Augustus. Volume one comprises the first eight books, covering the legendary founding of Rome (including the landing of Aeneas in Italy and the founding of the city by Romulus), the period of the kings, the early republic down to its conquest by the Gauls in 390 BC, and the roman wars with the Aequi, Volsci, Etruscans, and Samnites.
