The Spartan Constitution

The Spartan Constitution

Sparta was the first known functioning democracy. This was 150 years before the introduction of democracy in Athens.

They were a thinly populated state but they were greatly celebrated and was one of the most powerful cities.

The Spartan Constitution was written by Xenophon, a foreign dweller into the land of Sparta. Without his work, we wouldn't have any accounts on how the Spartan life became.

The Organization of the Spartan Constitution

The Organization of the Spartan Constitution

The Spartan Constitution was made up of the following:

  • The two Kings;
  • The 28 Elders in Council, also known as the Gerousia;
  • The five Ephors; and
  • the Assembly, which consisted of only all male adult Spartan citizens

The two kings' jobs mainly involved religious and military activities.

The Ephors were the overseers of the kings' activities and wrote legislation.

The Assembly would vote on legistations and the Gerousia held veto power.

Spartan Wealth

Spartan Wealth

Sparta, despite their mindset of being "foreign" in their own land, they had a military prowess that were feared by many.

Regardless, they were equals in terms of rights and wealth as all adult male Spartan citizens were given a plot of land and slaves to work on the land for them.

The quality of wealth eroded but due to inheritance laws and the continued existence of private property the wealth had become concentrated in the hands of fewer families, mainly the Spartan Heiresses.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
