The Roman Senate lasted for hundreds of years. During that period of time it changed functions. At times it was a ruling body. It acted something like the British Parliament serving as the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government. Then after Augustus became the emperor, it became a legislative body.

The Senate retained the right to appoint the new emperor. Usually it appointed the person chosen by the old Emperor in his will. The Emperor controlled the executive and the judicial functions. He decided whom to appoint and whom to execute. As a result, the Senate usually passed whatever law he desired.

The ancient Roman senate and the United States Senate were as different as night and day. The only thing they had in common was the name "Senate". For starters, there was the size. The United States senate is composed of 100 men; the Roman senate, at the time of Julius Caesar, had 600 men. The American senate can debate and pass laws. The Roman senate could debate, but only pass resolutions. A senator in the United States is answerable to his constituents, a Roman senator was answerable to no one. A senator in the United States must be reelected to remain a senator, while the Roman senator had the position for life unless he did something to get himself expelled from the senate.
