Perhaps we should acknowledge the Roman Kingdom (The Roman Kingdom (Latin: REGNVM ROMANVM) was the period of the ancient Roman civilization characterized by a monarchical form of government of the city of Rome and its territories.) as opposed to the Roman Republic (Res Pvblica Romana). Perhaps the history of both, in addition to the history of England, Europe and other republics, influenced the founding persons in the American colonies.

I'm sure the founders were most interested in what seemed to work.


Let us also not forget the Founding Mothers!

How about Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Deborah Franklin, . . . ?


Possibly a useful source for one's inquiry. I'm going to purchase this one myself.
