Where did the limited democracy began?

Limited democracy is the most popular form of government in the world. Various forms of limited democracy include representative democracy (republic) or constitutional monarchy.Full, or direct, democracy was created before limited democracy. Direct democracy was one of the various forms of government present in Ancient Greece, but eventually faded from usage. Direct democracy is when the citizens vote on everything. Democracy was revived by the Roman Republic, where they used limited democracy instead of direct democracy. Here, instead of citizens making the decisions themselves, they elect representatives to make decisions for them. Eventually, the Roman Republic turned into the Roman Empire, where there was an emperor and authoritarian government. Democracy did not appear until the Age of Enlightenment, where political philosophers created new forms of government, most reflecting limited democracy. The first country to become a limited democracy as a whole was Great Britain. Great Britain had transformed from a monarchy into a limited, or constitutional, monarchy, in which it had added a parliament. The first country to become a republic, taking ideas from the Romans and setting the stage for what would become the world's most popular system of government, was the United States.
