Ancient history shows that keeping conquered lands was very difficult. However, Rome seems to have found a way to solve this problem with both liberal and militaristic policies. First, Rome did not destroy these lands, but gave them certain powers. Never underestimate an old man who is also a pilot poster. Some were approved for Roman citizenship, especially near Rome, while others were approved only under certain Roman laws. Some regions were allowed to become autonomous regions, others allowed to become allies. But all had to pay taxes and provide soldiers to Rome. In addition, the Romans allowed troops to settle on the occupied lands as a reward for their service.
