Transcript of Oligarchy in Sparta, and Government in Athens

Athens had a system called government that would split the power equally with hundreds of people. The Athenians would use the Senate to
make decisions that the people wanted. There were two types of government, called Representative government, and Direct government.

Athens Government
Representative government was when the people elected a representative to make decisions on their behalf. Direct government was when the people made their own decisions in the assembly. The council was made up of only five hundred people, with only a one year term.

The Kinds of Government
Comparing the Two
Oligarchy in Sparta, and Government in Athens were both different ways of running a city state, but both worked for their people.
Spartas Oligarchy
Oligarchy was a political system that was used by the Spartans, that
was centered on war. Spartan children were taken at a young age, and
were starved in the barracks with the soldiers. They were encouraged to
steal food to create good thieves. If they were caught, they were whipped
publicly and in front of their parents.
Thesis Statement
In Athens and Sparta, they had very different political standpoints
that worked with their people and culture.

Oligarchy in Sparta, and Government in Athens
Athens and Sparta had different ideas on how to run their city states.
The Ephors compared to the government, the Spartans had five rulers,
and the Athenians, had no rulers. They made their own decisions with each
other. The Athenians had a government that only worked when the people
worked together, and the Spartans had a system that worked with kings
called Ephors.

Comparing the two
Athens had a representative government and worked hard and well through cooperation. Sparta was a city state that was focused on a political system called Oligarchy that was focused on Ephors
and training their people for war.
The Ephors
Sparta was a city state that was
focused on a political system called Oligarchy that was focused on Ephors and training their people for war. There were five kings called Ephors that would oversee the training of the soldiers. There were five Ephors so that they could split the power equally, but not be able to form alliances with each other without one holding the others in check. The decisions would also be able to be made quickly, because there was an odd number of rulers.
Why this is Important
It is important to know this because we can make decisions based on what has happened, and we can learn from what happened, and change it to make it better.
