Who were the Real Romans??

Over a quarter of all the people living under Ancient Roman rule were slaves - so were they Roman?

The Roman Legions were made up of soldiers from many countries of The Roman Empire - so were they Roman?

Emperors who ruled Rome may not have been born in Italy, i.e. Emperor Hadrian is thought to have been born in Spain - so was he Roman?

If by the end of the Roman Empire, Roman meant every free born citizen - then who were the Real Romans?

Who were the Real Romans??

So far, this page that I'm working on asks questions and I haven't come up with any clear answers or viewpoint yet.

What I do know, in pursuing my own research into The Ancient Romans, is that almost all, if not all, the information on the web does not give an accurate picture of what life was like for The Ancient Romans because it fails to define exactly who The Ancient Romans were!

For instance, you visit a "Daily Life in Ancient Rome" website and you are informed that The Ancient Romans ate dormice and stuffed songbirds for their evening meal......... Really?! What even Poor Romans? and Roman Slaves? and Rural Romans? You mean they were ALL sitting down to an evening meal of Dormice and Songbirds? WOW!

You see the point? Without a qualification as to who The Ancient Romans were and what status in Roman Society they held it is impossible to say with any accuracy what The Ancient Romans ate, wore or did.

Throughout Hadrians.Com I have sought to qualify such things and make sure it is understood when I am discussing wealthy Romans, or poor Romans, or Romans of the Imperial Household. This differentation is essential so as not to promulgate erroneous information about The Ancient Romans.
