Asked in Ancient Greece
How did democracy begin in ancient Greece?
Democracy was basically started off in Athens during the Classical Period (c.478-336 BC) in the city state (polis). Athenian democracy can be traced back to the reforms of Solon (584BC) who was a political leader and poet. He introduced a 4 stage citizan class system based on agriculture. Citizens qualified by virtue of birth and by landownership. Basically the more land you owned the more power you had, and only property owners could hold office in the public service during the time of Solon.
