XIII Lectio Boëthiana
Christopher Smith:
Etruscan Kings?

The Roman historical tradition was convinced that the Etruscans had kings, and moreover that their regal tradition influenced the development of power structures at Rome.  This persistent tradition feeds back into the interpretation of the architecture which Axel Boëthius studied so brilliantly and which the Swedish Institute at Rome has been so influential at uncovering.  So it is no surprise that we seek out the palaces of Etruria.  But what is this tradition based on and how reliable is it?  This paper will seek to rethink notions of leadership and magistracy in Etruria and Rome, and answer the question of in what sense Etruscan cities were ever ruled by kings.
