"Tiberius Gracchus" was written by Zhengdong Wang while attending Hamilton High School in Chandler, Arizona

Abstract: The Roman Republic's standing as a paragon of sophisticated civilization is due in large part to its law codes designating the rights of the Roman people. This paper identifies Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus as the catalyst for a series of rapid changes to the social structure of the Republic in the period 133 BCE through 88 BCE, which extended to Roman plebeians civic privileges pivotal in developing Roman law. The essay first explores the effect Tiberius' family ancestry and early career had on his later success as a reformer. Tiberius' famous land distribution reform, the lex Sempronia agraria, is compared to prior attempts to regulate Rome's ager publicus, or public land. A review of the conflict over Tiberius' law, culminating in his death, focuses on the class tensions he aroused. Finally, this essay investigates the origins of the subsequent period of reform, and concludes that those reforms would not have occurred as freely as they did without Tiberius' progressive career. Tiberius, through the lex Sempronia agraria, prompted challenges to previously clear class distinctions, impacting Roman society beyond land distribution.
