Best Answer

Among ancient civilizations, the Roman Empire was the first to have true forms of democracy: all of its most important officials (with the exception of the members of the Senate) were elected, and that for a limited period only. Rome even had (elected) officials with wide powers to protect the common people from 'tyranny' by the Senate or other high officials: the Tribunes of the Plebs (=the common people).

"Athens" or "Greece" have the traditional reputation of being the 'cradle of democracy', but that is a 19th century invention. All States in Greece including Athens were ruled by small groups of powerful families (so-called oligarchies) and Athens and Greece never had any democratic institutions.
